Southeastern Permaculture Gathering: REGENERATIVE UNIVERSE, with Rob Messick

From the very beginning of my time as a conscious child on planet earth, while lying on my back staring at deep blue summer sky, I would feel so very grateful that my eyes could not pierce space, that there was no ceiling, that the sky went on forever. And: From the very first time…

Southeastern Permaculture Gathering: INSECTS IN THE GARDEN, with Dr. Dick McDonald and Patryk Battle

Do your cabbages end up looking like this? Ours do. This is one of those situations where, when you find out that your problem is everybody’s problem, you don’t feel so crazy, or so dejected.
