Designing for Disaster: A Permaculture Vision for Decentralized Power

Join us Monday, November 19th as Brooklyn Permaculture Meetup Presents:

Designing for Disaster: A Permaculture Vision for Decentralized Power

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 It's time we all learn what we can do to shift from our toxic, vulnerable & outdated system to a regionally appropriate & resilient power grid by using the tools of Permaculture Design.

What would a smaller scale power grid look like in the Northeastern U.S.?

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 radioactive waste?

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

Bring a friend!

    Considering how much Andrew talked about biogas as the best energy alternative for our future, I thought this article about Prince Charles turning on a big one in the UK might be of interest. http://www.businessgreen.com/bg...­

    Excellent! There were A LOT of people there, Andrew's intro was very well-organized and informative, and the questions and comments afterwards really inspired a lot of ideas for future discussions and projects.

    Will this be more of a lecture or, a Think Tank with applicable solutions that can be presented, as a Unified Permaculture Society, to our Government Leaders?

      Both! The problem won't be packed up neatly in two hours though. Come with questions! Come with solutions for advocacy!
