All the Peak Moment Videos Filmed at Inspiration Farm

Posted by David MacLeod on July 6, 2014 at 4:34pm 0 Comments

I'm starting to lose track of the Peak Moment episodes filmed at Inspiration Farm, so I thought it would be nice to see them in one place.  Visit and subscribe to see these consistently good series of interviews (and see if you can find the one filmed in my front yard).

I'm also hoping you will be inspired to consider attending the Permaculture Design course at Inspiration Farm coming up August 17-29th.…

We aim to unleash the collective genius of our community to find the answers to this momentous question:

For all those aspects of life that this community needs in order to sustain itself and thrive, how do we...

Dramatically reduce carbon emissions (in response to climate change);
Significantly increase resilience (in response to peak oil);
Greatly strengthen our local economy (in response to economic instability)?

The goal of Transition Whatcom (and all Transition Initiatives) is to create a long term Energy Descent Action Pathway, a blueprint- by the community, for the community- of how to significantly reduce energy use and yet provide for our basic needs in times of energy scarcity.


Transition Initiativesmake no claim to have all the answers, but by building on the wisdom of the past and accessing the pool of ingenuity, skills and determination in our communities, the solutions can readily emerge. Now is the time for us to take stock and to start re-creating our future in ways that are not based on cheap, plentiful and polluting oil but on localized food, sustainable energy sources, resilient local economies and an enlivened sense of community well-being.
