Dec 1st I&I got let go from my first&only job, had it for 4 years after an unknown co-worker put chicken in my vegetarian hummus, they didnt like how i reacted iguess lol. made around 12k a year. have nothing to show for it. realized i wasted my life& my time and the whole way through i thought i needed it, it payed for my rent,food, dogs food etc, kept me living paycheck to paycheck though! this generation, us indigo children, us 17-25 year olds- we need to break free from this social bondage!. keeping us busy all day, distracted working just to pay to live and pay to eat from a grocery store and pay payapayapay and have nothin to show for it. We need to put our effort and time towards our passions and work towards being the change we want to see. stop putting our power into a systemthats trying to sacrifice us. work together find ways to be independent outgrow the govmt not fight them.grow food for our own communities make value and currency in our own way. so im gna start by helping my local region re evaluate what they think of as human food. give people their systems of their forefathers back! of fermenting, growing food, animal husbandry, living food diet, self sustainability!
CALLING ALL GREEN THUMBS! if anyone out there in the Fairfield/Vacaville/petaluma/ San Fransisco/ Sacramento/ Napa area or nearby is interested in growing their own food, gardening, creating community, and living more sustainably LET ME KNOW! spring is arriving! another chance to sow some seeds of growth and change for the better! Ive got 4 nice backyards of space and looking for more yards to get involved! also A nice amount of possible land in american canyon and a bunch of heirloom/wild/organic seeds already! Ive got the 2013 farmers almanac and have been studying diet and food growing fora while now! With all of this space and ideas formulating what i need is fellow co-creators! people to help me do some yardwork, build cob structures, tend to plants, build, sow seeds, create paradise! got domestic yards that need to be transformed into thriving gardens, so soon we'll have bountiful food for everyone involved + surplus to give to the community, homeless, etc! eventually we could network these backyards into a local grassroots CSA that converts yards into gardens while feeding the community, maybe obtaining empty plots of land in town to add them on! anything can happen
permaculture- a word only brought up in circles under fruit trees, when you type it into a searchbar or a post to facebook, a red squiggle line appears under it. Only people who lead or desire to lead a sustainablelifestle bring the topic of permaculture to their lips. They were the ones to first bring it up, to invent the word. sustainable lifestyles fueled by a system of symbiotic relationships with nature, creating a culture of human life that is permanent because it exists as an integral part of Nature as a whole. Its that Strand of human nature that stayed strong through this whole musical of the past 300 years of industrial growth. That consciousness that keeps ancient traditions alive, keeps connected with the Earth, bides its time. Permaculture is a re-interpretation of the language and conversation we as a society maintain with our local environments. It is the establishment of systems that no longer parasite the planet, the production of resources that is tied intrinsically to a holistic relationship with the land, plants, animals, OURSELVES! Permaculture also consists of studying the Nature, respecting and learning from her design as much as you can, thus further respecting and learning about yourself! mimicking and attemping always to add to It's and Your infinite ability to bring enough bounty and harvest for all and more!

Hi Blaine!
Vallejo urban farmer here. I'd offer to help out but I've got my hands full with our own property at the moment.

Have you thought about (or even know about?) checking out the East Bay Urban Agriculture Alliance? You might be able to find a lot more resources and people there to join you in your quest. We're actually meeting tomorrow evening at the Ecology Center on San Pablo Ave in Berkeley at 6pm. There is also the Bay Area Homestead Hookup listserv to find other local urban farmers. Lots of info on there as well (the current thread is actually about permaculture courses). Good luck in your quest!
Blaine Lindsey
