Hey permies folks,

We just published parts one and two of three of blog series on our website called "Living with Fire".  It is written from the perspective of two designers/forest tenders living on the central coast of California, but is applicable to anyone living in a fire ecology or who simply wants to be better prepared for the possibility of fire.  On the west coast of the USA, centuries of poor planning and design, of trying to eliminate fire rather than coexist with it's natural cycle in these areas, has caught up to us.  We are hoping these blogs posts are a good resource and will help create more resilience, both for humans and the environment, in areas like this. The first two are linked below, I'll update this thread with the third when we publish shortly.  Looking forward to hearing what you all think!

Living With Fire Part 1 - Personal Responsibility, Basic Fire Science, and Site Selection

Living With Fire Part 2 - Regenerative Firescaping: Protect Your Home with Good Design
It would give a normal human mental abilities to rival mine. To think it is just a tiny ad:
