"When health is absent, wisdom cannot reveal itself, art cannot manifest, strength cannot fight,
wealth becomes useless, and intelligence cannot be applied." - Herophilus
The relentless burning of fossil fuels is destroying our climate and the underlying health of our biosphere. We wish to integrate all renewable production sources into Old Tree growth to develop resilient alternatives to fossil fuel dependence. Small solar, wind, hydro, and bio (diversity) diesel production will be invested in for real growth. One of our primary methods is to intercept waste wood, chip it and season it to create optimum fuel from material that would normally be destructively burnt in bonfires or hauled away uneconomically to be incinerated... We will use this waste wood and matter as the fuel for the bio-charcoal producing wood-gas stoves which will power our breweries. We also intend to accumulate fuel through forestry practices, from the sustainable management of local woodlands. Our plan is to harness appropriate technology to use this material as power for our processing operations and utilities of: cooking, heating, transport and electricity.
