Sunset on a Stormy Day

Sacred Economics

I wrote about a precious book called Sacred Economics on my personal blog. I invite you to check it out.

Maramures in the 1960’s

A unique view into traditional Romanian village life with honorable mentions of: hemp: grown and processed by hand for clothing. financial wisdom: a commons approach to land wooden wheels … wow! wood-planks: the fluidity with which a log is transferred (by two men and a very long saw) into planks gypsies: with a disctinct role […]

Water First

I really need to get this short post out of my system because its stuck in my throat … When I first learned about Permaculture I got lost in a bad way. So many bits and pieces of information are associated with Permaculture that I could not make sense of it all. Particularly I couldn’t […]

When to Get Food?

When it’s available! That seems like an obvious answer but if you have gotten used to super-market mentality then that answer is not so obvious.

Permaculture Keyline Water Systems: Don Tipping at Seven Seeds Farm

It seems like a damn has been opened … and water knowledge keeps flowing to me. Another great demonstration of keyline design used to replenish a landscape and to insure water security. This one in north-west USA:

Water Walk

Yesterday we went for a walk around the valley in which Bhudeva is located (into which we envision Bhudeva expanding). It was a cool and sunny day. We walked around the first two-thirds of the ridge surrounding the valley but gave up on the final third because cold air was blowing into our faces and […]

Keyline Design At the Beach with Darren Doherty

Water has been a prominent subject on my mind in recent weeks (months already?). With the understanding that fertile soils are the basis for any … ummm … life! well established in my consciousness the door is opened to the subject of how to restore (and maintain) eroded soils (of which we have numerous kinds […]
