Introduction to permaculture

Agriculture must change. We have to go back to the old way to work our lands. But for sure, for the success of it, all the distribution and the consumption must change, as the people’s mentality and priorities too. But it IS possible. Recently, I learned about permaculture, a sustainable and organic agriculture, in self-sufficient human settlements. This type of agriculture reduces society's reliance on industrial systems of production and distribution. Many places around the world are already experiencing it, and you know what? It is working PERFECTLY! Take a look at these videos, and open up your mind!

The Esalen Farm & Garden (THE 3rd VIDEO) grow all their own seedlings, and they compost every little waste from the kitchen, and also the cardboards! They also are providing the Big Sur community, in California, with their local organic produces. CHEER!
And what do they use to do all that? Their hands!...and one tractor. Voluntaries and apprentices are doing their part the whole year long.

Don’t you think that they look truly happy in the way they are living their life large? I have learned on all that because of the SuperForest team. So, do as they do: talk about it to as many people as possible, and together, we’ll make it change!

Full of hopefulness for our futur,
