Post Petroleum Survival Seminar
with Albert Bates.

Modern society is designed on the premise of cheap and abundant energy produced by fossil fuels like oil and coal. But oil is running out and burning coal to produce electricity is changing the climate. There are alternatives applicable on all scales. What is the potential for low energy permaculture in dense urban environments?

The wisdom of native people’s suggests we plan for our children to the seventh generation. We can relearn nature’s patterns and share soft energy alternatives, nutritious food, harvest water, turn waste into profit, and become part of the world-wide permaculture community. In this way we learn how to mitigate inevitable change as we seek a truly sustainable environment.

A ONE DAY SEMINAR. Produced by Andrew Leslie Phillips.

Albert Bates is author of eleven books on law, energy, history and environment, including Climate in Crisis, Voices from The Farm and Shutdown: Nuclear Power on Trial. A former New Yorker, he is a permaculture instructor at the Ecovillage Training Center at The Farm community in Summertown, Tennessee.
