On April 1st I’m giving a talk at the Goodwin Library in Farmington, NH, on preparedness, sustainability and using low-tech techniques to recession-proof your home and family.
I’ll be discussing how to live gracefully without modern conveniences such as septic, running water, or electricity in the New England during all seasons. Topics will range from explaining the basic needs of the human animal, separating wants from needs, and discussing a variety of skills and techniques used at our field school which are simple, inexpensive, and green. The include:
– A composting toilet systems that can be made for less than $10
– A solar ovens for cooking without gas or electricity
– Portable wood stoves and tents which can be used during extended power outages
– How to purify drinking water
– How to keep stored food safe from bugs, mice and other critters
The talk is scheduled for 6pm.
