Gordon Katic is an environmentalist, but he doesn’t get out of the city very much. He’s plugged into politics, but removed from nature. So he boarded a ferry and went to a farming co-op on an island off the coast of BC. He found old hippies, a new-agey kid, and a man very afraid of peak oil. They all say that civilization is doomed, so they decided to escape. But what did they escape to?
