We are very interested in this subject and are trying to do something about it.
The reason for our interest is that in our opinion a critical imbalance of food demand and food supply is coming.
According to new research from Yale University and Michigan State University the world has already reached Peak Food production. Click Here to see their new research “Have we reached ‘peak food’? Shortages loom as global production rates slow.”
This crisis will peak sometime before the year 2030 leaving large groups of people without enough to eat. Our food production can be affected by a Northwest Tsunami, changing weather patterns, factory farming, increasing price of oil, dwindling supplies in fish\crops, global debt, inflation or total economic collapse.
When the crisis does come you have a choice be a Grower, a Hoarder or a Detainee of the Homeland Security Dept.
Regardless of how much food you hoard, there is a limit.
Food production on the cool Oregon Coast is different from food production in hot humid Iowa. We have an Education and Research Center in Lincoln City, Oregon and an 80 acres experimental ranch in Siletz, Oregon. At each location we experimented with Sustainable, Permaculture and Off the Grid techniques and technology to use existing material to solve our food production challenges of the coast.
Research Center is a Living and Learning Laboratory. Ongoing 4-hour Mentoring Sessions given year around.
We offer four (4) options to Live on the Oregon Coast at our Center and Learn from Free Workshops and Hand on Training in exchange for Barter-Hours Labor.
This opportunity is for someone that is serious about,,,,,,,,Sustainable, Permaculture, or Off the Grid Living.
The Center is a Sustainable Community with everybody has their own lodging, food, heat and sanitation facilities. We are NOT a communal, political, environmental, religious, or militia community.
