New New Haven?

I’ll be there this weekend for the first ever Urban Adapting-In-Place event – I’ll be speaking on Friday night about urban adaptation and on Saturday a whole host of local resources will come together to talk about New Haven’s future. I think it will be absolutely wonderful, and I hope you will be there! http://www.sare.org/mysare/Events.aspx?do=showevent&event=2734…

Whole Life Redesign

As most of you will remember, we came very close to moving during the summer. It was an agonizing decision to make – there were compelling arguments on both sides, and while we ultimately came down in favor of staying in place, we also recognized that the problems we saw with our present situation are…

This post ran a year and half ago at The Oil Drum, but I thought it was worth re-running, as I begin my new Adapting in Place class (still two spots if anyone wants them – email jewishfarmer@gmail.com – and no, it isn’t too late!). How do you even get started thinking about how to…

Sundry

Various Updates: First of all, Aaron Newton and I will be offering the Adapting-in-Place class again for the very last time for at least six months, and maybe longer. So if you’ve ever thought of taking the class, now is the time! Adapting in Place is my favorite class – it covers everything from what’s…

How to Think About Housing

Super-quickie from me today – officially I’m in transit, but while my visiting my MIL and miraculously having time to read the entire New York Times before breakfast (admittedly the skinny Wednesday edition, but hey, I’ll take it), I wanted to draw your attention to this article by David Leonhardt about how to think about…

Zombie Attack…No, Really!

(Awesome image of zombie me by Joseph Hewitt of Ataraxia Theatre and the originator of the cool RPG Gearhead Check out my fellow bloggers to see their zombie pix! I wonder if New Society would let me use this as my book jacket photo for the new book?) As all of you obviously know, July…

(I really wanted to post Ronnie Gilbert’s version of this song, because not only is she a fine old folkie of the sort you are damned grateful exists, but she has one of the finest set of pipes out there. But there’s no video anywhere I can find of her singing. I like Mississippi John…

Most of the people who take Adapting-In-Place, reasonably enough, are doing so because they intend to stay where they are or fairly nearby in the coming decades. They know that they may not be in the perfect place, but for a host of reasons – inability to sell a house, job or family commitments, love…

Just a reminder that Aaron Newton (my co-author on A Nation of Farmers) and I will be running our Adapting in Place Class online for six weeks, starting Thursday. The class is asynchronous – you don’t have to be online at any particular time, just participate when you like. The goal of the class is…

Tell Me Your AIP Story

Ok, as you all know from my “Pyr-Buck-Bees-Sheep” post, I need inspiration to get this book cooking again. So I know you’ve told me before, some of you, but I want to hear about how you are making a lower-energy life where you are, or how you’ve found a new place to do it. I’m…
