Thanks for creating this thread, Duncan. I didn't know you were going to do it but it's great.
I'm also happy to answer any questions people have about the courses or even about what it means to prepare for peak oil, climate change and our declining economy (as Jim has so eloquently phrased it 'The Long Emergency' â€” hmmm....that's a good book title...
My company focusses on personal preparation, but really each and every community must also start to transition to a world without oil. For that I recommend that people join or start a local Transition Town group, which unlocks people's sense of creativity and collaboration as we remake our communities. More on Transition Towns is here: http://transitionus.org
. San Francisco is having its kickoff event on June 11th and there are kickoff meetings happening all over the world.
BTW, our current courses are Introduction to Sustainable Gardening, which is a great way to learn the essentials of permaculture, and Chickens 101, which shows people how to start keeping chickens.
