Growing local

The Power of Community. How Cuba Survived Peak Oil (sub español)

Roberto mentions me and Eric "the first two Australian permaculturalists" at 19:15 :)
We screened this at the Brisbane Town Hall in 2008 (to a packed house) when Roberto toured Australia - and then I started this website, because I wanted to help people grow local food again. And no, I am not a communist. I am a humanist, and an ecologist, and a permaculturalist. And if I could take all the best bits of all the political systems in the world and weld them together into a system without any of the fatal flaws, then i would be delighted.
