Paul and Jocelyn continue a list of wishes. The first wish is to have people signup for the PDC and ATC!
She wishes for more private spaces to help people decompress from the normal stress of community living. Jocelyn would like people to understand the value of organic food vs just saying "I can't afford it". She would also really like there to be more help for small businesses with their basic business practices. Jocelyn also gives workshops on Small Business Basics and How to Use Quickbooks. Both Paul and Jocelyn talk about how much trolls and stress wear you down. So they both wish for permaculture people to try to Be Nice and build people up!

In my PDC one of our instructors told us that "beauty is a function".

Jocelyn: I think allowing yourself to prioritize beauty in your environment is a permaculture principle even though we like to shy away from it as being a "priority". Creativity and imagination are often born in beautiful places and they serve as a place that 'fills us up' instead of draining us.

After being to Wheaton Labs I can say that it is far from a 'shit hole'. I could spend all day in that kitchen!
Wink, wink, nudge, nudge, say no more ...
