Occupy

A lot of specific knowledge and expertise accompanies permaculture design…               swales, bunyips, vermiculture, etc, etc, etc.                                                                                    Forget it…for now.                                                                                                                         Here is what it’s about:

EARTH CARE                                                                                                                                 PEOPLE CARE                                                                                                                               FAIR SHARE

I am discovering that these ethics, reliably, guide me towards thoughtful, substantial, and positive change when I act in accordance. In connection, I feel drawn to the growing Occupy Wall Street movement, which is spreading to many cities and beyond.  I hear a strong cry for actions which stand upon these same ethics…a meaningful movement toward social justice, economic justice, and environmental justice. If you want to understand more, here are a couple of useful links.                                                                                                                                                                                                           The first official release for Occupy Wall Street                                                                               And                                                                                                                                                         An explanatory presentation (with charts)                                                                                                                                                               If you are interested in supporting the movement, punch in “Occupy (your nearest city’s name)” to your computer (and, especially, on the Facebook site) and you will, probably, find useful information.

(This was posted on the AFSC Facebook site…had to share it!)

I discovered that the American Friends Service Committee donated their facilities to Occupy Philadelphia so that they can cook meals. Good for them! And…maybe a good home for organically grown Tahitian Melon and Sweet Potatoes!!
