  Any punk rockers out there?  I grew up listening to Crass, and have always been influenced by them - politically, musically, in terms of self-sustainability, DIY, etc.

   They put together the Dial House in Essex England, I believe, the 70s.  ...as a creative house, as a self-sustaining commune-like open door.

    Here is a documentary about Crass:

    Not a PDC or anything... not as rich in permaculture info as a lot of what you can find out there on the web, but I thought throwing it out there couldn't hurt.   Most of it is about the band,etc.  But there is a bit about the house, permaculture, and self-sustainability.

    I know they teach permaculture courses at the Dial House?  Anyone been there, attended a course, or anything?
