Those sites that predict that peak oil will empty our cities are way off base.

There's just not enough farmland in the world to feed both people and cars.

David says:

Food production and distribution is the real issue in all of this.

Individuals are not amused.

Ya'll got that right! Which is why I ain't waiting around for a sedum roof? Feast your eyes on my very own premier urban crisis garden for landless city folk: WRCU2 JPG IMAGE

I ain't looking to produce enough food to feed my family of eight (4 humans, 3 cats and a dog) but I can envision a commercial application which may bring in enough extra cash to help in that regard.

The thought occured to me one day whilst snaking a drain that roots love pipes! I figured that so long as I can still acquire pipes made from petroleum cheaply, why not attempt to develop a landless garden? I don't need to bore you with the details of how such a thing could have widespread applications in a city. Just look at IT's simpli-city: WRCU2 JPG IMAGE

Alas, I had asked for help here at RTH but none of the great armchair city planners at this site appear interested. Not even the illustrious, industrious Bob Green Innes who has his own rooftop gardens was willing to share his expertise with me. I guess he was just too busy running for MP.

No worries, I'll keep you posted on my progress throughout the season and I'm always available Thursday's at Buckeye's. Will the City of Hamilton survive the Energy Crisis? I don't know, but I'll think about IT over a Guinness as I listen to Steve Sinnicks.

Cheers.
