"Hi Franz, I am presently trying to find communities that are indeed self-sufficient (or close to it) food-wise. Are any of the "villages" able to sustain themselves? Reading about Global Villages, I get the sense that the…"

Profile Information

How are you currently involved in the Transition movement?
I write a blog on current issues, focusing on local food in Boulder County. I love to garden, and I hope to grow more food than any other year this summer. I am cutting back our environmental footprint at home.
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
This is an emergency! So much needs to be reversed - factory farming, wasting fossil fuels, consumerist attitudes... Better start somewhere now!!
How can you help the growth/acceptance/vitality of the Transition movement? What can YOU teach us? What can your GROUP teach us?
I think we can have a lot of fun building community, growing and preserving food together, learning to celebrate by singing and dancing together.

I love to do all those things. Also, I am a family doctor, and understand a lot about maintaining health, and understanding the impact of disease. How the medical system will survive a Peak Oil crisis is unknown.
Your Favorite Books/Websites/Blogs/RSS Feeds for Information about the Transition Movement
A must see: Chris Martenson's Crash Course.
I read The Oil Drum, just about every day.
The best book I have read is John Michael Greer's "The Long Descent".

Hi Myrto,

I share your concerns. About Global Villages I just can say that the purpose of our interconnectedness is to help raise the degree of our "self-sufficiency". It sounds like a paradox but it is not. Managing a self-sufficient, resilient community is a highly complex thing which require more knowledge than the industrial age ever needed. So we need to link up many experts in many parts of the world to help us achieve a goal that still sounds unrealistic to many.
