In this 30 minute video, Andrew Faust shares his inspiring vision for greater food and energy independence. It's a guide to feeding and providing power for our local communities in ways that are not just "sustainable" but truly regenerative and life-nourishing for humans and the biosphere. This is the gift and legacy we can create for our children to inherit.
Faust shows how we could grow all our food locally and produce all our power with local renewable energy. We just need the knowledge and will to make it happen.
To offer a concrete, localized example, Faust talks about how his ideas could be applied to the Rondout watershed, a sub-watershed of the Hudson River. His approach would help promote resilient communities while turning around climate change and solving food, hunger and distribution issues that are inherently created by the industrial systems we presently depend on.
Part 2 is the same video with music.
