Journal of the New Alchemists

NEW ALCHEMY INSTITUTE. 7 issues, published 1973-1981. A journal covering the work and research of the New Alchemy Institute (1971-1991) in ecological design and autonomous living. Frequent topics include wind & solar energy, aquaculture, organic gardening & farming, bioshelters, permaculture, ecological restoration, green building, ethnobotany, tropical ecology, and appropriate technology. "Among our major tasks is the creation of ecologically derived human support systems - renewable energy, agriculture, aquaculture, housing and landscapes. The strategies we research emphasize a minimal reliance on fossil fuels and operate on a scale accessible to individuals, families and small groups. It is our belief that ecological and social transformations must take place at the lowest functional levels of society if humankind is to direct its course towards a greener, saner world."
