Choosing Eden:  The Real Dirt on the Coming Energy Crisis

 

Choosing Eden
The Real Dirt on the Coming Energy Crisis

Author:  Adrienne Langman

ISBN: 9333290011397


This wonderful book is one of the first I read after my "awakening" to the Peak Oil situation.

It is the first-hand account of a couple in their 50's- Adrienne and Larry Langman- who become aware of Peak Oil, and what it may mean for them and their family, and take the brave plunge into unknown territory of beginning the creation of a self-sufficient lifestyle.  They leave their comfortable life in Sydney for a 12 acre property in Nana Glen in northern NSW.

Armed mainly with research and a determination to provide some stability for their family in times to come, they set about learning the skills they need and tackling this huge project of turning their block into a sustainable food farm.  Neighbours and new friends with expertise helped along the way... and eventually even family- who had previously thought them rather "crazy"- change their perspective and get involved.

A really enjoyable read, as well as being instructive, Choosing Eden puts out a wake-up call to all of us ready to listen.  We need to take responsibility for our futures and provide basic needs for ourselves as much as possible- along with working with our community- because we can't necessarily rely on the government to truly even acknowledge the full extent of the potential problems, let alone act swiftly enough to make a smooth transition.  So, it's up to us to make our own personal journey as smooth as possible.
