Permaculture in Action

To start we need to at least question the need for change. What is life like now? What will life be like for future generations? Where are we headed?

Right now we’re planning on infinite growth on a finite planet. I don’t think it will end well. Change will happen. Either we change or we will be changed.

Change requires us to do something. The more we do the more changes.

Start with one thing. Change adds up.

In what ways could you invite change into your life?

Making Sense?

I’ve found myself smelling and tasting soil and various plants around me (some known poisonous). I like to ramble through the woods. Find a sit spot, stop and listen. Do Tai Chi in the woods. All different ways to experience than a map. Perhaps the landscape is the map itself!

Counter Mapping

What is a map? How does the form it takes influence our thinking? How have maps shaped the world? What is the effect of the birds-eye view? It’s completely different from the way we experience the world.

What other forms could a map take? Are the zines that we made maps?

The Source

The inspiration for this website came out of an event put on by Love, Resilience, Action Ypsilanti in response to the presidential election in 2016 and our desire to contribute something. We have different styles of thinking, Grace and I, and I think the products of our labor reflect that. Nevertheless both booklets turned out amazingly.

You can download them both here:

Glorious Debris in a computer readable format and in a printable format.

Permaculture in Action in a computer readable format and in a printable format.

Experimental

This site is an experiment.

It is our ongoing study, offering up our findings as we go. Searching for an originating thought. It is the question in search of an answer.

Some things don’t work, some don’t work they way they were intended. But, we learn and grow.
