Old 99 Farm

Old 99 Farm is home for the Copetown Climate Action Institute, founded in 2021. The Institute mission is to personalize the lifestyle choices that confront us all because of the climate emergency. We believe that many values we take for granted are at the root of this crisis that threatens our very existence and will have to change. For example, Growth is good, Technology always solves problems, Nature is our servant, Humans are superior. We also believe that the sequel to an energy-rich market economy must be devised and evolve within decades, mainly by trial and error among the early adopters of new local cultures. Because we as a species appear hardwired to denial realities that threaten, we have delayed action for 40 years that could stabilize the climate and even restore biodiversity. Now there will be much suffering and hardship that could have been avoided, for a large portion of the human population including right here in the Dundas Vallel.

We host social and educational events and support the efforts of others to reveal personal lifestyle changes in behaviour, buildings and land use that will increase household resilience to climate shocks. We believe these necessary and massive changes will have credibilty when any of us can look around and see evidence that others are taking like action. We want to catalyze that action in the Dundas Valley. Please contact us if you feel so moved.
