Local Self Reliance Seminars are a series of workshops that deal with local issues and how local people can learn and adopt present technologies to become locally self reliant. The workshops are sponsored by Oregon State University Extension, Oregon Coast Community College Small Business Development Center, and Lincoln County Technology Solutions Alliance. Topics covered in these workshops are grouped into three categories: Energy, Economy & Community.
