Our conversation centers around the now that wreaks of Our future: farming and peak oil.
Is farming en masse a viable opportunity?
What are the prospects of future fuels as we slide down the curve of peak oil?
Join us in conversation with Stacey Roussel, wife, mother, farmer. Stacey left corporate America to feed her soul and nourish our bodies with delicious fresh produce grown on her land with her family. What challenges has she faced?
Peak oil, what are alternatives? What conversations are relevant right now? What questions could we ask that can assist in the change we want to see?
Mark Juedeman, co-founder of Transition Houston, http://www.transitionhouston.org/
“Transition Houston is an optimistic and energetic response to the dual challenges of climate change and peak oil at the local level. The Transition Movement supports the transition from oil dependency to local resilience by equipping communities with creative adaptations in areas such as food, energy, health, education, spirit and economy to generate a road map towards sustainable living.
Transition Houston serves to build on the wisdom of the existing resources in Houston’s diverse community to inspire, network and train localized communities to consider and adapt Rob Hopkins’ transition model. Together we can unite pools of ingenuity and skills to unleash the collective genius of our own people in finding self-determined solutions.”
