"the true modern smart farming" - Permaculture / Polyculture Design In Action...!!!
Andrew Faust - Tour of the Center For Bioregional Living

Andrew walks around the eminent permaculture training site in the northeastern US.
Gravity fed water systems, pond construction, off grid biodynamic gardening and more!

Excellent example of what Permaculture / Polyculture Design can accomplish...

I think we should start finding new terminology to define Permaculture / Polyculture Design
Can we simplify our terminology so more people understand the concept...?
When Paul Wheaton gets his chance to go on the Daily Show, he needs to be armed with some terminology that people can understand...
maybe something like this to start... ==> "the true modern smart farming" using nature as our partner giving us free inputs...
"Better Sense" tells us all ==> Modern Monoculture Farming is Not Smart ==> Monsanto, Oil Companies, and all the other multinational companies brainwashing us with dollars they take from us and destroying our planet... and we all get stuck paying for repairing it

You all got ideas? Bring them ON...!

Regards
Monte Hines

Andrew Faust is one of my favorite Permaculture educators. So incredibly smart and really sees the big picture.

Isacc,

I wholeheartedly agree with you about Andrew.

First heard him in Occupy video --> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vaT5BSxs8is

Then I watched a lot of his videos on his YouTube channel --> http://www.youtube.com/user/dreiky?feature=watch

Smart, sees the big picture, and communicates ideas very well.
 
I wasn't selected to go to mars. This tiny ad got in ahead of me:
