Our ETPRI library currently contains well over 1,000 volumes. We have books on Permaculture, gardening and farming (organic and biodynamic), beekeeping, and many other agricultural topics. We also have quite a few volumes on the environment and the environmental challenges that face us all.
Further, there is a large collection of economics books — the spillover from Jim’s days in Econ grad school. Some of these are agriculture econ.
Once we get the books all cataloged and shelved properly, most of them will be available for loan to members.
We are also building a library of videos related to Permaculture and related topics. These too, will be available to members.
Finally, David Bolt has some really amazing equipment left from his days as a solar installation ‘executive.’ Many of these items will be available to members on loan. However, due to the degree of technical skill needed to operate this equipment and the very high cost of some items, members will have to be trained before using it
As for this photo: Since most of the equipment is packed away in whatever carrying case it travels in, we were forced to publish a photo of one rack of cases that really shows nothing other than the number of tools we have on hand. Eventually we’ll publish a list of these tools along with some exciting ‘action’ shots.
Once again, the tool library is part of the benefits of ETPRI membership.
