I came across this today...There is something called a Global Village Construction Set and it seems like the ultimate prepper resource for
reconstruction after a SHTF scenario. OSE provides the know-how to make essential machinery needed to build a functioning civilization. The
closed-loop idea is very cool. It’s interesting to me to see people apply modern technology and local resources to create a sustainable civilization
which can be replicated virtually anywhere. I wasn’t sure if you preppers out there have seen this yet. I did see a link to it on ATS in this
but I haven't seen any discussion. They have some pretty interesting ideas so I thought
I’d share for those who haven't seen it.
Check it out: opensourceecology.org...
"Open Source Ecology is a network of farmers, engineers, and supporters that for the last two years has been creating the Global Village Construction
Set, an open source, low-cost, high performance technological platform that allows for the easy, DIY fabrication of the 50 different Industrial
Machines that it takes to build a sustainable civilization with modern comforts. The GVCS lowers the barriers to entry into farming, building, and
manufacturing and can be seen as a life-size lego-like set of modular tools that can create entire economies, whether in rural Missouri, where the
project was founded, in urban redevelopment, or in the developing world. The Global Village Construction Set (GVCS) is a modular, DIY, low-cost,
high-performance platform that allows for the easy fabrication of the 50 different Industrial Machines that it takes to build a small, sustainable
civilization with modern comforts."
