On April 5, the David Brower Center welcomed environmental scholar Wes Jackson as he discussed his recent book, "Consulting the Genius of the Place: An Ecological Approach to a New Agriculture" with Executive Director Amy Tobin. Jackson is the president and founder of The Land Institute, an organization committed to developing the field of Natural Systems Agriculture, which focuses on the ecological stability of systems.

Wes Jackson wisdom and knowledge on this subject is outstanding...
Much too be learned in the short time required to watch this playlist...
A must watch...
These ideas are key to the future of humans on this planet...

With Regards and Respect,
Monte Hines

I just saw a cool image highlighting some of Wes Jackson's work at http://www.lexiconofsustainability.com/pop-up-art-shows/perennial/.

<Edit: the linked photo image was bit too large, trying it as an attachment instead.>

Jocelyn,

Thank you a lot for that...

I was unaware of http://www.lexiconofsustainability.com/ site and their great work.

Their images, videos really convey a whole lot... "masterpieces" in my opinion!

New language of sustainability is important for us all.

Please! don't point out to Paul that they used florescent lighting in poster.... (-:
