Back to the garden

Looking for some optimistic approach of the future challenges that our civilized world will face, I walked in the Transition Cities movment website. This group develops a proactive approach to overcome peak oil restrictions among city-sized communitites.

Of course nowhere but in Britain can a group develop the concept that gardening and staying at home can save humanity. But, seriously, this group pinpoints some very importnant facts about moving back to a localy sustainable life :

  • how can we maange to EXPLAIN the thread to come and really enrole a group of citizen, including their elected representative that have a lot of power to loose in a more day-to-day scarce ecology.
  • How do we make sure that the seed distribution overpasses regulations and big companies to remain efficient (able to reproduce and to deliver good varieties)
  • How do we keep and distribute old knowledge and habits
  • how do we cope with an obvious loss of comfort

The Transition Cities are engaged in a ten-year plan to transforme things locally and generate a good knowledge of what can be done. If something can be done, I think there may be some good clues around there too.
