The Green House

West central co-housing gardening/ animal keeping/education experiment

Author: Redurth
Summer of 2012 these 2 city lots were purchased with a vision.

6 housemates and a dog this Spring are planting the seeds along with youth around the area.

I, Adam Brown, pruned up a cherry in the front and planted some gifted Comfrey, from a member at the last meeting, underneath. I also pruned up some original? Lilacs and Honeysuckle that may have been planted in the mid 20th century. My friend Beth Mort helped me start up some compost. My friend Ed Bryant stopped by and gave me some pointers and my buddy Dan Dengler removed one of the 9 Silver maples in order to allow some more Sun on the empty lot where the future greenhouse may be and also to provide lumber for the future dining table.

Redesigning Civilization – with Permaculture

by Toby Hemenway March 8, 2013

Modern agriculture, industry and finance all extract more than they give back, and the Earth is starting to show the strain. How did we get in this mess and what can we do to help our culture get back on track? The ecological design approach known as permaculture offers powerful tools for the design of regenerative, fair ways to provide food, energy, livelihood, and other needs while letting humans share the planet with the rest of nature. This presentation will give you insight into why our culture has become fundamentally unsustainable, and offers ecologically based solutions that can help create a just and sustainable society. This is the sequel to Toby’s popular talk, "How Permaculture Can Save Humanity and The Planet, but not Civilization."

Holistic Management

TED Talk with Allan Savory

WOW!  Recently Maurice Robinette gave a talk about "Holistic Management" at the Spokane Permaculture Study Group.  It was very interesting but after watching this TED Talk video from the originator of the concept (Allan Savory),  I realize I just didn't get the BIG PICTURE.  Very worth while video with global implications.  Thanks for the introduction Maurice :).
