Our next meeting 4 Aug 7:30pm will feature a couple of shortish movies on “Perma-culture”

The first is called “The Power of Community: How Cuba Survived Peak Oil”

When the Soviet Union collapsed in 1990, Cuba's economy went into a tailspin. With imports of oil cut by more than half – and food by 80 percent – people were desperate. This film tells of the hardships and struggles as well as the community and creativity of the Cuban people during this difficult time. Cubans share how they transitioned from a highly mechanized, industrial agricultural system to one using organic methods of farming and local, urban gardens.

If time permits we could also look at Tazzie Permaculture guru Bill Mollison in a slightly dated but informative discussion on lazy man’s gardening techniques.

Good text interview here to get you into gear.
