Panels Not Pipelines: A Speaking Tour About Solutions

Oct 17 2014 (All day)

These problems have left many Albertans wondering if we could write a different story. A story that still creates jobs and keeps our economy strong but without the environmental downside.

Luckily those solutions are readily at hand and Alberta is the perfect place to implement them. Read more »

On the tour other prominent speakers like award winning author and journalist Andrew Nikiforuk, solar energy guru Randall Benson with Gridworks Energy Group, and wind and solar expert David Isaac may also join Jane.

This is a moment not to be missed. Read more »

Sep 24 2014 - 7:00pm

Free presentation and discussion. No registration required. Refreshments at 6:30pm

Speaker: Rob Avis, Verge Permaculture

Rob and Michelle Avis have been living with and researching a solar greenhouse in Alberta for the past five years.
