I'm brand new to permaculture and am most interested in financial permaculture. Anybody involved with that? Ideally in Oregon? Even more ideally, in Southern or Central Oregon?

Maybe the request is a little nebulous for folks to dive into this. Also I suppose if you're "brand new" then maybe people expect a certain degree of self-education. But I saw this post and was curious. I posted awhile ago about exploring ("fleshing out") the intersection of public banking and permaculture. I think we can look at money the way we (permaculturists) look at water. Maybe our problem is we have a runoff problem, a lack of infiltration and soaking, a lack of organic matter due to yearly abuse...the metaphors are endless. Maybe the runoff is actually exacerbated by huge diversions and channels leaving vast areas parched and select habitats over hydrated and wasting water...

I see a resurgence of socialism in the political world. Kshama Sawant, Bernie Sanders, Richard D. Wolff are just three examples of more notable figures. I'm not seeing this paralleled within permaculture and I guess just wonder why or maybe I'm not paying enough attention. I am somewhat distracted these days with social media and so many different interests not to mention embarking on our own homestead project...

What do you mean when you say "financial permaculture"?

I suppose what many are already doing in terms of community living, ecovillages, ant village, co-housing is/are perhaps the most basic form of socialism, that is to say pooling resources and livelihoods, so its so embedded that it doesn't stand out, at least to my eye.
 
All of the following truths are shameless lies. But what about this tiny ad:
