(projects i'm following)
I have been involved in self sufficiency, organic gardening, bioregionalism and other efforts to change the way humans interact with the rest of nature for more than 30 years. I made my living as a lawyer and have been able to devote full time to my real passion since 2004.
That is both my background and how I became interested/involved in permaculture.
We are currently building community gardens using sheet mulching techniques, teaching through the Living Systems Institute, and working at developing Community Sufficiency Technologies . . . the know how to organize ourselves to provide for ourselves.
I hadn't been here in a while but got the notice of change in domain name. Here is a link to the writing I have been doing.
The only conscious power in the system is the power of the individual human to choose.
We are all engaged in a design project . . . managing the interactions that make up our lives . . . The design science of permaculture offers effective tools for that project.
Integrate rather than Segregate
Nature works through closed loop production systems.
An update on our relationship with bees.
We will heal nature and produce abundance one repaired soil ecosystem at a time.
Apply Self Regulation and Accept Feedback
Money is a measure of relative Scarcity. That is not good or bad. It is just what it is.
The more neighborhoods that have bee hives, the more opportunity there is to discuss with neighbors the problem with spreading poisons.
There is a middle ground between a strict scientific and a spiritual approach to permaculture
The important question to ask is, “What can I do to improve the habitat for myself, and the other living things around me?”
Healing nature and producing abundance starts with the soil.
To solve the big problems like peak oil, climate change, poverty and environmental degradation, we have to change the way the system functions.
Our actions contribute to the creation of our habitat. Live consciously among the things around you.
Thinking about the needs of bees as one element of building sustainable local systems
We are already a part of a group consisting of all the living things in our locality
Ordinary people taking the future into their own hands
