Over the last few weeks, the financial masters of the Universe have been meeting in grand conferences.Â Held in world capitals, the cash glitterati have been conspicuous in their open conspiracy to take from Main Street and give to Wall Street.
They’d like for everyone to believe there is no alternative to their schemes.Â But that is part of their shock and awe propaganda campaign.
Although the national media will likely ignore this event, an important meeting to plan grassroots, community, Main Street alternatives as we go forward through the crash of the American Empire, will convene October 24-28.Â This won’t happen in a world capital, but rather in Hohenwald, Tennessee, which is about 80 miles from Nashville.
We will apply the design discipline of permaculture to the situation of a small rural town, and consider a sustainable way forward for that area through the coming decline years.Â Twenty presenters/instructors include community investment experts, sustainability entrepreneurs, and permaculture designers.
We will learn to map the financial eco-system of a community, to apply permaculture principles to a business plan, and invest in sustainable, grassroots, home-grown enterprises.
We will answer the question — what does a sustainable, working model for a modern American rural community look like?
Read more about the event here. As of this writing, more than 100 people have signed up, plus the 20 presenters.
If you can’t attend, you can follow the events as they unfold on the internet via presenter and design team blogs, podcasts, and video clips.Â The gateway for joining us online is http://www.financialpermaculture.org/Â .
I will be presenting Sunday afternoon through Tuesday, on my work here in Oklahoma City in developing local food systems via the Oklahoma Food Cooperative.
Please take the time and effort to join us, either in person or on line.Â
