Thanks Tal. I think you are right about this. I think we can communicate in more ways than we assume. Nice to meet you.

Purple breathers. I like that. Nice to meet you Erin. I hope you like those books too. They are not about permaculture but have lots to say about humans in relationship with the nonhuman world.

People probably don't talk about it as much as a result. In native cultures it's completely normal to have direct relationships with plants that include communication.



I would agree with you here, Rose. People don't tend to talk about it. I have seen surprising reactions from people simply seeing his books in my house. And yet, Buhner has had a huge impact on me, along with others like Martín Prechtel (especially his latest book on plants), Paul Astin and David Abram. I don't know if I just marked myself or not. I don't think I'm looking for unicorns and faeries just because I believe plants are more than mere biological machines and that they communicate.

I thought I posted this in the intro string. Oh well. Somehow it became it's own topic.

Hi! I'm Bill. I live in Tampa and sadly am not close to the soil, but want to be. Apartment living has it's downsides after all. Still, I want to meet people who have the same heart, people who want to be more connected to the land and blend more with it and hopefully live near or in South Tampa.
