We've been reading about the Transition Town movement, concerning towns seeking to redesign themselves to better survive peak oil. We then found this story about what seems to be a "transition family."
Concerned about climate change and the rising price of oil, the couple, from Alvaston, are going back to the good life and preparing to transform their garden into a new-age allotment.They hope to soon be feeding off home-grown vegetables, fruit and seeds and are working towards a self-sufficient lifestyle...
That certainly sounds like us. That family contains both adults and children, as do we. The Masons are working with a local community interested in post-oil shock life, as are we.
It's heartening to find more people engaged in this kind of practice.
