Our present power grid is nearing the end of it's lifespan and erratic weather patterns like Superstorm Sandy are revealing the grid's inherent weaknesses. It's time we all learn what we can do to shift from our toxic, vulnerable & outdated system to a regionally appropriate & resilient power grid by using the tools of Permaculture Design.

Can we design our energy infrastructure efficiently in the face of global climate change and fuel shortages of all kinds?

How can we address systemic contamination from lead, mercury and

Join us November 19th as we discuss ways to advocate and address these questions and more.
