Hi. I know that this place might need some help. Madre Tierra. I guess you'd use the contact form from the website. Good luck.
Yeah I thought that was a great point too. I guess if you "get" or understand permaculture then you'd know that its a life style thing. Not just a rearranged landscape design that you can show off. You the human are a part of the system. Our society is big on supporting things, bringing awarness to things, funding things, but not actually building or doing things. It's cool that there is potentially permaculture businesses that might turn down clients that don't understand that commitment is part of it. However, I guess it's better to design for people and have them pay you to maintain it than simply not spreading the ideal. Also thought, 85% of small business fails within first six months, usually because of poor planning, heart not really in it. I'd suspect that permaculture designs that are paid for, not started more organically like progressing from container patio garden to an permaculture acreage over years of effort i.e. top down fertilizing vs letting the plants root system figure it out, will have a similiar failure rate, above 80%.

So I guess one would offer a maintenance plan that included some lifestyle changes. Maybe explain that permaculture is all inclusive, meaning that you the human must participate aswell or it's not permaculture.

Very meaningfull drivel. When ever we change something in our environment, like a trillions of people carrying around 1 watt microwaves in just a few decades, we should observe or at least think about the impact. Which some of us we are doing right now. Heres a great podcast interview with the author of the book Disconnect: The Truth About Cell Phone Radiation, What the Industry Has Done to Hide It, and How to Protect Your Family by Devra Davis. He posted great info to go along with the podcast and posted that he as a result of the phone info.

Thanks for the wishes. Yeah theres a little pocket of permaculture in Nebraska which I haven't tapped yet and really didn't even know about but I'm slowly networking.

Hi Brenda. Longer as in above average life spans. Blue zones have a higher number of centenarians. Also, these areas are examples of a good life design. It's instructive at least. My grandma is 91 and after I saw the blue zone video I observed that she lives her life in a very similar fashion to blue zone areas. Like permaculture, its just making changes to the environment that influence our habits. Im also bringing blue zones up because I think that similar movements like longevity, permaculture, blue zones, preppers, will spread and eventually merge.

We should make earth better than a blue zone. A blue zone is, Blue Zone is concept used to identify a demographic and/or geographic area of the world where people live measurably longer lives, as described in Dan Buettner's book, "The Blue Zones: Lessons for Living Longer from people who lived the longest." -wikipedia I think permaculture can help make earth a blue zone, then humans could make something better than permaculture, then make something like a super blue zone. super duper green zone maybe? who knows


This video explains what blue zones are. It also taught me the phrase procreative success, awesome

Lateralus

This song got me through horrible time in the desert post Iraqi invasion. I needed away from that place so I listened to the lateralus album over and over. The cool part is it was the first time I actually listened to music. I actually started to hear how dense and complex that band is. Which helped me to eventually better understand arts importance in the world.
