Urban Farming Revolution
An inspiring example of urban farming in Pasadena USA. A family of five, 6000 lb of produce per year from one tenth of an acre. Solar power, biofuel, hand-driven gadgets, chickens, ducks, goats. All this not as fearful survivalism but done with openness, fun and a strong connection to the community. A great example of the lower consumption, reduced energy and higher independence/self-reliance transition we all need to reduce climate chaos and cope with peak oil, being built right here and now, i.e. the good life. May many more be doing this as we organize to transform oligarchic capitalism into a participatory economy and democracy in which we call the shots. This is the trailer, see the whole 15 minute doco on YouTube.
