Welcome to Gary's Vitamin Closet!
Our global civilization and the nation have reached a critical historical juncture. As the threats of climate change grow stronger, as economic recovery becomes more uncertain, and as the resources upon which we depend become scarcer, allowing ourselves to be pulled by the status quo is no longer reliable. Therefore, learning to survive more independently from corporate culture, becoming more self-sufficiency, is in greater demand than ever in order to prepare ourselves for difficult times ahead.
This special and exclusive 8-audio CD collection is one of the most concise introductions available that address the present and future conditions humanity may face and advice for adopting sustainable practices that will lead to greater self-sufficiency in times of economic and climatic crisis. The collection includes some of the most renowned researchers and practitioners in their areas of expertise who can guide people to engage in projects that will bring a deeper sense of satisfaction and lead us to become part of solutions rather than pawns of the problems.
