Closely related to shelter is the issue of energy. The costs of electricity and oil keep rising, and will not decrease in the long run.
How will we keep warm? What are the latest developments in solar energy? How can we use renewable energy resources (such as wood) more efficiently?
The Blockhouse School Project intends to develop and demonstrate ways to use renewable sources of energy.
We aren’t alone in this. See this video about energy initiatives in Lunenburg County, starring The Blockhouse School Project as well as the Dayspring Fire Hall.
