About Brandon Ballentine

I get bored doing any one thing for too long. This hasn't always served my wallet well, but it's always kept me learning. I've worked in landscaping, retail, I have built skyscraper windows, I have been a union iron worker hauling rebar. I have worked in water damage restoration, doing salvage, demolition, dryout, and reconstruction/restoration in homes and commercial structures. I have written and self-published two books and am currently working on a third.

I first heard somebody talking about Permaculture on a online talk radio show. It was obvious to me that the world was falling apart and I felt powerless to do anything about it. The answers that Permaculture provides, in terms of why the world is in the state that it is in and what is to be done about it, are deeply satisfying for me. I suppose this is because it is an over-arching science of harmonious connection; one that challenges us to break out of the current regime of ardent compartmentalization and a pathological illusion of disconnectedness. In short, to understand and apply Permaculture is to rightly understand the interconnectedness of everything, the cause-and-effect intrinsic to this interconnectedness, and to walk the path that is really in everybody's best interests.

I am interested in intentional community and am interested in learning more about the parameters for becoming involved in aid work. I have made a couple of attempts at becoming involved in newly starting intentional communities but, so far, haven't found a good fit.
