I’m not sure how well known this show is so I wanted to mention it here because I think it’s wonderful. Peak Moment Television originates from the west coast of the US. The birth of Peak Moment Television was “in response to awakened Peak Oil awareness” and all the issues surrounding it…Peak Moment Television is a series of “conversations” with local residents and educators which offer “perspectives and initiatives for local self-reliant living in the face of energy, climate, and economic uncertainty.” It’s a weekly 28 minute show which airs on public access tv. Or you can watch it like I do, on YouTube.
For those of you who want to walk a bit more softly and self-reliantly, and who want to see the words “local” and “community” actually mean something again, I think you will find this show informational and inspiring. I’ve linked to just one episode here, one of my favorites, just to give you a taste of what the show is like.
Peak Moment episode 87: In summer 2006 Judy Alexander embarked on an experiment to see how much food she could grow, and how many neighbors could benefit from the garden around her house. Check out her homegrown rainwater collection and irrigation system – watering her 60+ edible crops. Meet the bees, the chickens and the worms. And catch her joy in producing so much food for so little effort.
If you enjoyed that, you will find another 141 episodes available on YouTube. And here is the Peak Moment main website. And here is Janaia’s Blog. If you’d rather watch this on tv you can check here to find a station and viewing time, in your area.
