First report: Yesterday’s Bronx Workshop on Living Off the Grid in New York City

on October 9, 2022 in Events, Nature

Yesterday morning I packed up a lot of stuff: my pressure cooker, solar panels, battery, and enough food for a bunch of people, and took the subway to the Bronx to give a workshop.

Often when I talk[…] Keep reading →
