Urban Agriculture and Local Activist Organizing with Grant Neufeld


For the last 50 years, throw-away consumer culture has led citizens of industrialized societies to forget many of the basic survival skills that have sustained humans for generations. Today, the impending challenges of peak oil and climate change leave our communities susceptible to the shocks and instability of centrally distributed hierarchical systems for life support. Facing the prospect of a world with drastically reduced access to energy and material goods, a rising network of Transition Town advocates, urban homesteaders, permaculture activists, and DIY proponents are retraining communities to manage their own food, shelter, waste, transportation, health, clothing, and models of exchange.

This month, Transition US and The Evolver Social Movement will explore the pioneering organizations and individuals who are empowering us to build vibrant, resilient, and sustainable communities as part of "The Great Reskilling." The 40+ regional Spore chapters will feature workshops teaching anything from sock darning to bee keeping, cycle maintenance to rooftop gardening, aquaponic systems to natural building, solar panel installation to bread making, herbal walks to alternative currency.
