Cassie - these just keep getting better! You bring a lot of energy and excitement to Permies

Two suggestions:

--Although you enunciate very clearly, slow down a bit, especially for our non-native English speakers (I've been on the other end of THAT equation!)

--Can you include the links to the threads you reference below the podcasts? That way folks can easily find them and partake in the FUN.

Keep up the awesomeness - I <3 the permie vlog!

Yes I can try to slow down a bit! I can imagine that might be kind of hard to understand.

There are links to each thread under the youtube video when you click on the actual video that takes you to the youtube website, but I didn't think of putting the links in my posts here in case people just watch the embedded version. Good Idea!

Would you kindly post a link to the permaculture playing cards, i.e. buying them directly from Paul? Thanks Cassie. Your video blog chops are coming along.

Anyway, each week I just try to share as much permaculture inspiration and as many smiles that I can fit into 2-3 minutes and I hope that it helps make the world a better place in some way.

This week I have posted a quick tour of Wheaton Laboratories for you guys! While I visited their amazing permaculture property, I took tons of video and this is just the beginning. For each of the projects in this video, I will post a separate video explaining them in more depth. I will release over the next few months so you have that to look forward to!

Great tour, Cassie! Seems like the gang has been BUSY! Looking forward to the individual project videos to follow.

PS: The snow is pretty to look at but I'll be kicking back in the 70 degree weather here in Phoenix today, eating tangelos from the tree! I do NOT miss shoveling snow! (I'm bragging now because it a few months it will be back to 100-120 degree days).

Oh joy, the Xmas presents keep rolling in! Thanks Cassie for the best one so far ;) This is so exciting... on the edge of my seat for the rest... I'd, personally, like to see these 'epic' (to use Jocelyn's word ;) projects as approaching from a distance, then close up ;) .... but whatever you have done will be very much enjoyed and appreciated :) Thanks again.... you rule!

Thank you Cassie and gang,
This is exactly what people need to see. Many people are gradually trying to be more sustainable, and when we see it in practice and read about how it's working, we feel like we are emboldened to try more experiments ourselves to try to see what actually works. Keep up the great work!

Cassie,

Thanks so much for making these videos... the quick update on what's up is great. I feel like it really helps me stay in touch with the Permies community, even when I can't let myself get into the forums. (Cause I find myself linking from one to the next and the next thing I know an hour has gone by.)

I found the quick overview great... it let me see everything all at once. I look forward to the updates with more info in them.

You are indeed getting better... with your vlogging but I have always loved your excited, youthful, joyful attitude. It is refreshing.
-Kelly in Vermont

Thanks for all the great feedback everyone!! It really was just a complete joy to see everything going on in person and I wanted everyone else to enjoy it too. I also can't wait to get all of the individual videos up for you all. I might even do a blooper vid! We had so much fun just joking around that it might be fun for everyone to see that as well. Who knows.
