These are adaptive, resilient and secure places in a future of peak oil, climate instability, and deepening economic insolvency."
They also "plan, develop, and manage land-based wealth preservation and security projects for those with the forethought to invest an abundance of present day resources to reduce their familly's vulnerability to future food, energy and other supply-chain disturbances, as well as peak-oil, climatic, economic and other events."
