our vision is

To empower the people of our bioregion to develop sustainable, collaborative, and socially just communities leading to a self-sufficient post petroleum society.


Who We Are

POST OIL SOLUTIONS is a group of citizens from the Southeast Vermont bio-region who began meeting in June 2005. We joined together to take our first, modest steps toward creating more cooperative, self-sufficient communities. Our goal is to learn about and develop sustainable practices in our homes, neighborhoods, and larger communities, so as to begin creating the infrastructure in our region necessary for a post oil society.

We believe in Sustainability and Community Building!

Let's Chat

Taking action is never about the big picture. The more we focus on the local picture—the situation in our immediate world, our families and friends, our neighborhoods and communities, the strangers we encounter on the sidewalk—the more opportunities we will find to act in ways that matter.
