See How Cuba Survived Peak Oil

Original Title: The power of community: How Cuba Survived Peak Oil

Very interesting documentary on how Cuba survived the “peak oil” crisis forced upon it by the fall of the Soviet Union and also US sanctions.

“When the Soviet Union collapsed in 1990, Cuba’s economy went into a tailspin. With imports of oil cut by more than half and food imports cut by 80 percent, people were desperate. This fascinating and empowering film shows how communities pulled together, created solutions, and ultimately thrived in spite of their decreased dependence on imported energy. In the context of global Peak Oil worries, Cuba is an inspiring vision of hope.”

Seattle’s ‘Food Forest’ Project

An Inspiring Food Forest Project, something we should all be encouraging in our local communities and on all spare available public land. The way to feed the “future” is food grown locally, what better way to start than community food forests. Those places could then offer things free like Fruit Tree Grafts and Perennial Seeds to all and spread the wealth for years to come, plant a tree now for our kids to be feasting on!
