The Power of Community

Last night my local Greens group screened a short documentary about the Cuban peak oil crisis. The Power of Community is an inspiring look at how an industrialised community slowly changed as their oil supply from Russia was cut off. Rooftop gardens, community vegetable gardens, organic cooperative farms along with bicycles imported from China enable them to slowly change their focus and survive. Lessons for us all as peak oil approaches.

We should ALL learn and practice these things. There are great lessons to be learned here.
I, personally would love a rooftop garden.
Cool post!
