Food, Farms & Family — Resilience

Nicole Foss SW Ontario Tour Nov 26 to Dec 2nd
Food, Farms and Family: Building Resilience within Limits
A Century of Challenges: Energy and Finance

What can families do to increase their resilience to upsets and breakdowns in the food and farming system? What can farmers do to keep our food supply secure, healthy and local?

Nicole Foss lives on a farm near Ottawa, is trained as a biologist and in environmental law, She consults on energy and financial issues, See www.theautomaticearth.org.

Her Food, Farms and Family talk will address food production in the future and the related health time bomb in this era of industrial foodstuffs. Our farming system has critical dependencies on fossil fuels, superhighways, large scale mono-cropping and genetically engineered seed.

The Century of Challenges Energy and Finance presentation will focus on peak oil, ponzi economics and how to prepare for what’s to come. Her down-to-earth approach will help you grasp what limits to growth really means. She helps you identify your options to prepare for challenging times.
