World Made By Hand

How do we live with less of everything? Less power, resources, fuel, knowledge of how to do things.

How do we live now and 100 years into the future without the just in time delivery of goods and services? How do you ensure we can live healthy, happy lives (and the lives of our children and future generations ) when power and TPTB have failed us.  What steps can we take be more resilient and rely on ourselves more. 

These are the questions this group will answer and hopefully we will create a world worth inheriting - one made by our own hand.

Grow, Cook, Eat!

The Fix-It Corner

As we contemplate a world of resource scarcity, it makes sense to fix things rather than replace them.  How many times have you discarded an item that was "perfectly good" but needed a repair you couldn't manage -- or stashed it in your cellar/garage/attic thinking "someday someone will fix this"?

Do you like fixing things and/or helping people figure out how to fix things? 

Do you cringe at the idea of buying yet another (fill-in-the-blank) because the one you had just broke?

Do you loathe putting things in the trash because it makes you think of the mined and harvested materials that cannot be recaptured?

Do you want to conserve financial resources by reusing instead of replacing?

Please join us in helping each other figure out how to keep useful things useful.  Post here if you need help figuring out a repair, or if you have repaired something you'd like to tell us about.  Share links to useful fix-it info.  Post photos!  Our collective knowledge is our best resource.

Suburbia USA

James Howard Kunstler says that the suburbs will become the "slums of the future."  This group is for those of us who don't want to see that happen.  We live in an environment that is restricted by HOA regulations, oversized homes, and small lots.  Many of us are not in a position to move.  Hopefully we will find solutions to increase resiliency in our homes and encourage sustainability in our communities.

Edgemar 1 Open
Southern California

This very diverse mega-region emcompasses over 23 million people living in an area of 56 thousand square miles, ranging from urban to suburban to rural, covering coastline, hills, scrubland, forests, mountains, and deserts - covering San Luis Obispo, Kern, Santa Barbara, Ventura, Los Angeles, San Benardino, Orange, Riverside, San Diego, and Imperial counties, though the bulk of population is centered around Los Angeles, Orange, and San Diego counties.

This is a place for discussion of issues and situations unique to residents of Southern California, as they apply to building awareness and strengthening resiliency in ourselves and in others. (As well as whatever else we feel like talking about.) If this group gets big enough, then it might make sense to create sub-groups specific to individual counties.

South Island Resilience through Permaculture

Welcome to South Island Resilience through Permaculture.

If you've found this group then you've probably at the very least discarded New Zealand's mainstream media as the source of your information and become aware that all is not as rosy with the world as our politicians and media would have everyone believe.

Our economy is very fragile and unstable. There is practically no discussion of this or macro preparation for global economic collapse. On the contrary most people's heads aren't even in the sand; most people have no idea there is a looming serious problem.

This group was created to form a community of awake South Islanders aiming for resilience through education, trade, and general support before and after economic collapse.

Rather than spending time working out what to do, this group is for people who have already decided that permaculture systems are the solution, and you should either have completed a PDC and be practicing permaculture or be aware of it and be aiming to complete a PDC.

We are happy to liaise with other groups in our area who also recognise the problem but are set on a different path to insulate themselves. 

Cheers

Craig

Sharing Circle

At last -- Peak Prosperity's own virtual "swap shop."  Let's increase our group resilience by making connections and generously offering what we can.  Need something?  Have something to offer that others might find useful?  Post here; cross your fingers; wait and see who responds!

This is a closed group, but all are welcome with moderator approval, with the following expectation:  For this group to be a successful community resource, it needs to be comprised of community members who already understand our philosophies here at Peak Prosperity, who embrace the idea that community resilience enhances personal resilience, and who are already invested in being a part of this community.  If you are brand-new at this site, spend some time reading, learning, and participating at Peak Prosperity first. 

How It Works:

1) Generously offer anything you have but don't need that you'd like to see go to an appreciative, resilience-minded home.  Think about what you need or want, and don't be afraid to ask for it.  What better place to practice that skill than in our supportive community?  If nobody responds to your request or offer, don't take it personally; your courage in asking or your generosity in offering will inspire others regardless of the outcome.

2) This group is only for FREE items.  The giver and receiver should mutually agree on who pays shipping or how the item will otherwise be exchanged.  Local exchanges are great when they can happen! 

3) Offers must be between individuals -- no commercial or third-party offers are allowed.

4) Identify the item you're seeking or offering in the subject of your post.  Post a brief description of what you're looking for in the body of the post.  Include an honest description of an offered item's condition, and post a photo if you like.  It is also acceptable to post a Wish List of items you are looking for.  Please do not post any personal contact information (see #7 below). 

5) When an item has been given or received, it is your responsibility to UPDATE the group by posting under your original message.  This is very important.  It is frustrating and time-wasting to see a listing for an item you need or can help with, and to go to the trouble to contact the original poster, only to find that there is no longer a need, so please be communicative and responsible.  Be sure to post your successes so we can all celebrate and appreciate the value of our group!

6) Identify your general location (state, geographic area, and/or country) in your post so readers can assess the distance (for postage or transportation).  Do not reveal specifics of your location.  (For example, "New England" or "Maritime Canada" or "Texas" or "India.")

7) Use ONLY the private message (PM) system on our site for privately sharing your postal address or other contact information.  DO NOT post your address or phone number publicly, and to avoid potential spam, we also recommend that you do not post your e-mail address directly.  If you need help using the PM system, please contact me and I will help.

8) All transactions are at your own risk.  Peak Prosperity has no obligation or legal responsibility for any exchanges arranged privately or publicly between its members.  Trust yourself and use your own best judgment in all cases.

If you have suggestions on how to make this sharing circle even more successful, please let me know.  Together we can help this effort blossom and contribute to the collective resilience of our community.

Seniors Exercise

I, Karl Loren, am 81 years old, earned my Kung Fu Black Belt at 74, now do all my exercises with the Polar Heart Rate Monitoring System and do it all in my pool.  Currently I do about 2500 repetitions of resistance band Kung Fu stretches and kicks.  My resting heart rate is below 50 beats per minute.  My cool-down rate is often a reduction from a high above 110 BPM to a low of 70 BPM in 5 minutes or less.  Oh, yes, I had a stroke years ago and still walk "with care" but keep fit.

There are many forms of senior's exercise, this group is for people of any sex or age who want to comment on "Senior's Exercise," but particularly for those who seek to exceed the status quo of complacency.

This is not limited to PEAK performance, but it is aimed at "FITNESS" and how to maintain or improve it as a senior.  It is my personal goal to stay fit until I DECIDE it is time to leave this life and to leave without trauma or distress for others.  My wife is comfortable with my view of death as I, years ago, agreed with her decision to enter a hospice because of esophagus cancer.  She changed her mind about living and now cancer-free at 75 does NOT do much exercise but she shares my goal of fitness in her own way.

This is a group for those who seek fitness in their own way.

Full disclosure:  My wife and I founded  and are now retired from a vitamin company.  I do You Tube videos which include many "pure truth" themes and some "video endorsements" of my own product creations in the hands of a new owner.  I judge all my videos to be my sincere view of truth.

Santa Clarita

Per Charles Hugh Smith, with alignment with Chris Martenson, the NEW era of survival will be very pronounced as necessary by 2021.  In that era "local groups" will be the center of society and "entrepreneurs" will be their "backbone."

One of the phrases borrowed from Charles Smith is "digital fabrication," meaning, loosely, making by hand.  My own new enterprise IS that type of enterprise "making" videos with local production, local talent, local distribution and "my fingers" on my video camera.

I have lived in Santa Clarita for about 5 years, love it and find it a far better "group" than 50-mile away Los Angeles, but on a par with 20 mile-away Palmdale and 40 miles for Lancaster.

People in this geographic area are more rural than city, even if not many large farms.

The air is clean and some hundreds of thousands of people are in these 400 square miles.

My new enterprise in this area is "digital fabrication," by which I use the term to represent "videos" made by me with my Canon T2i camera, local to my area talent, faces, business, life and activities.  If You Tube is still around I will publish there, where I already have 50 uploaded videos of mine under "Karl Loren."

I also have a private video server I can use if You Tube fades.

Join this group if you want to see this, YOUR local area around Santa Clarita prosper in the coming new era and if you want to help others in this area learn the concepts taught by Peak Prosperity.

Join this group if you are a candidate for a video by me done "locally."

Join this group if you are interested in starting a similar group of your own.

Join this group if you want to learn how I, Karl Loren, have approached, am approaching and will approach this mission for me at 82, planning on living and creating for at least the next 9 years.

I call this group "Santa Clarita, California Peak Prosperity Group."

I have changed my entire life style so that I now have willing time to visit this group at least once daily to respond as apprpriate.

Love,

Karl

San Francisco - North Bay Resilience

To help people in San Francisco and the North SF Bay Area connect, exchange ideas, build community, and, to the greatest extent possible in a wobbly world, enjoy preparing for an uncertain future.  If you're interested in connecting, sign up as a member and let's find a convenient time and place to get together.   

People in our area interested in resilience are living in a lot of different situations  - in the city, in the suburbs or the country, are in different life phases, and may have somewhat different takes on what's going on in the world and what makes the most sense to do to prepare.  Should we stay where we are now, or move to another house nearby, or a more distant community that might be a better place to make resilient?  Does being prepared only mean "digging in" and getting ready to be more self-sufficient for the duration, or can it mean becoming more collaborative, mobile and adaptable, too?  It's interesting to share our experiences, knowledge and thoughts.  Some may find it worthwhile and/or fun to collaborate on projects like food storage, aquaponics design, research on alternative energy systems, locating and connecting with other like-minded communities.  Some may just want to talk or swap ideas.  Let's get together.  Virtual-only neighbors are welcome, too, of course...
