The Predicament

- Retrofitting suburbia and adapting in situ are necessary. - It's recommended to start small and slow.

What Can I Do? - Share your excitement about your vegetable garden with colleagues and neighbors. - Get to know your neighbors. - Start building community in your local area.

The future is quickly approaching, and there are several interconnected issues threatening the stability and existence of global industrial civilization, including:

  • Climate change
  • Overpopulation
  • Species loss
  • Resource depletion
  • Financial crisis
  • Social media
  • Acidification of the oceans
  • Topsoil erosion

Humanity faces multiple converging predicaments. The difference between a problem and a predicament is that problems have solutions, while predicaments have outcomes.
