Hey Folks, We wanted to let you about a certification we recently received. Through a partnership with the WSNLA and the USDA we were able to attend a training course at our regional WSU extension. An Eco-pro professional landscape certificate is state recognized certificate in sustainable and ecologically sound landscape management practices. Our background in horticulture, urban farming and permaculture all contributed to our ability to obtain this advanced certification. One of the reasons we sought out this program was to deepen our understand of how our landcare practices impact the greater community. From watersheds and rain gardens to habitat restoration and water management. The scope is broad and we are proud to be members of community of ecologically minded professionals. We look forward to engaging with our community and the landscapes we all share.

This is a PSA for all the soil nerds out there! Check out this loamy soil from the property Andy and I just purchased 😍😍😍. We aren’t doing much but sketching, reading, and brainstorming at this point, but this soil has a future to feed a community, regenerate ecosystems, and restore communities. We couldn’t be more enamored with this black dirt! Got some experience with earth works or natural building? Tell us what your favorite books are below.

I’m at @iicmc and talked a little about my work in reproductive medicine today. But, really, I’m so thrilled to have given my talk a little after this amazing woman/practitioner/leader in Chinese medicine Infertilty treatment. #janelyttleton published an important English language text based on her study with #XiaGuiCheng that informed my practice and shaped my clinical thinking very early in my career. My research on #wholesystems #traditionalchinesemedicine and #IVF was largely an assessment of the clinical approach she described in her book mixed with some of @thefertilesoul. I would never have imagined I would one day share a stage with either of these women. I’m deeply honored to stand on the shoulders of these two giants, who also are fellow shorties. #foreverthestudent #wow

“If we meet the challenge of decreasing demand and consumption globally while replenishing resources through regenerative design and technology, we have a chance of making it through the eye of the needle and creating a regenerative human civilization. This shift will entail a transformation of the material resource basis of our civilization, away from fossil resources and towards renewably regenerated biological resources, along with a radical increase in resource productivity and recycling.” - Daniel C.

Permaculture is not just about land management but engaging people and habitats in an integrated harmonious design. With our facilitator Drei Castillo, who has been working with Cordillera farmers for several years, we repaired the garden after Typhoon Mangkhut passed through last month and organised a clearer system for roles and collaboration among our partner community members for the completion of a regenerative agriculture demonstration site we began last year at Balawag, Tabuk City, Kalinga. This followed after testing collaboration with the Department of Social Welfare and Development’s Pantawid program beneficiaries for several months. We are inspired that after a series of dialogue, we are now preparing to enter a more formal partnership with local community gardeners and farmers through an MOA with the government agency. We trust that this would create a sustainable collaboration to address food security, chemical dependent farming, and livelihood challenges the community faces as climate change intensifies. #ecovillagdevelopment #wholesystems #regeneration #permaculture #climateresilience 📷 by Gumay Tenda

I support #SusanRice in exploring a run for the Senate against @sensusancollins I encourage everyone to do the same. Maine has the unique history of being where #BuckminsterFuller vacationed (on Bear Island) and did a lot of his pioneering work in #sustainabledevelopment. His #WholeSystems approach to problem solving could transform the political dynamic in Washington if it found its way there through #SusanRice 's efforts. It's time for science to take its rightful place in America's future domestic and foreign policies!

We thank Geelong Permaculture Australia and the Blue Mountains Permaculture Institute for our Living Food Releaf for 90 affected families from our partner village of Balawag in Kalinga province after Super Typhoon Mangkhut swept through northern Luzon last week. We also thank the women volunteers of Balawag who helped us prepare for the relief distribution! Because the typhoon damaged crops and vegetables in the region, we sourced from local farmers and fishermen who produced dried fish, organic rice,and mungbean as offering to the economically affected families who have have large loss and damages, have single parents and large number of children. Each family was required to bring a container to receive 3 kilos of rice and 2 cups of munngbean and dried fish were wrapped in used paper sheets and calendars from the barangay hall. Living Food Releaf is part of our Garden to Garden Releaf response during relief and recovery stages to provide alternatives to processed food and plastic packaging based donations in evacuation centres, resettlements and affected areas. We aim to source the most available edible and medicinal food and plants from local organic producers and local economies while consciously packing them with alternatives to plastic packaging. With this design, we hope to activate a whole system understanding of the relationship of food, nutrition, medicine, waste management, and livelihood. We are studying how to support other Typhoon Mangkhut affected areas in Luzon including the landslide in Naga, Cebu. To support, please visit https://www.greenreleaf.org/support . Thank you for your generosity! 🍃🙏🏽💫 📷 by Gumay Tenda and Sarah Queblatin #greenreleaf #livingfood #wholesystems #regeneration #permaculture

Thank you to our wonderful hosts, Lylee and Lindley (the latter of @livingedgewoodworking ) for welcoming us into their home in Bethel, VT. These two are so inspiring with the work they are doing in their small town, rehabbing an old building - “The Arnold Block” ( @arnoldblockvt ) - and bringing movement classes, meeting, coworking, and cooking spaces to their community. We are leaving feeling energized (and a bit like we want to stay, roll up our sleeves and get to work with them). Also, thanks to Moqui the dog for endless affection. . . . . . #growinghome #hosts #vermont #bethel #arnoldblock #wholesystems #community #inspiration #changemakers #moquithedog

woodstacking partners. as i barrow away and stack the fir that cured all year in a pile, the chickens and ducks harvest insects that have taken up residence beneath the wood. the hens are particularly fond of ants nests. then they dig over the area fresh for sowing grasses, clovers and wildflowers.

We took a field trip to Kosters island to visit some friends (old and new) @kosterstradgardar ✌️😍. We toured their permaculture garden, enjoyed a surprise serenade in the greenhouse under their grapevines and had a delicious lunch - thanks to everyone working on site 🙏| we found tons of inspiration and new ideas, it’s always invigorating to meet and talk with others about their dreams and projects.

Cleansing for Athletes! Written by David Gilks who is a body builder, athlete, coach & Isa Millionaire It seems that many athletes who are introduced to the concept of cleansing are 1) scared to lose hard won muscle 2) don’t think they need to cleanse 3) don’t want to take time off to cleanse as it messes with their training regime. To address the first concern we know from all the research available, if you are following a nutritional cleanse protocol properly you cannot lose muscle if you stick to the 48 hour time frame. That is due to the increase in growth hormone secreted and while GH is floating in our blood stream muscle is spared. I think where this fear comes from is the loss of strength that is experienced shortly after the cleanse day, which is due to a lack of blood glucose, which is only a temporary issue, not for a loss of muscle tissue. And as for athletes not needing to cleanse, well actually, due to the amount of oxygen (athletes take in more oxygen due to respiratory rate increase from exercise) athletes take in during exercise they are exposed to higher level of air born pollutants. Athletes also drink more water and are exposed to higher levels of water born contaminates, and athletes consume more calories and thus are susceptible to a higher level of food born contaminates. So with the goal of ultimate health and performance being the primary goals, cleansing for the athlete makes good sense. The other issue is that athletes don’t like their training regime messed with. The whole nutritional cleanse process if done properly will have the athlete cooling his heels for 6 days out of 31 days followed by a nightly cleanse (one to two scoops of cleanse powder before going to bed on regular days). Not a huge investment of time for the incredible benefits derived from the cleansing process and most athletes I have worked with could use the down time to recover from the incessant workload they put themselves under. In this toxic environment we now find ourselves in we can use any help we can get to ensure our bodies continue to function optimally, and cleansing is one of the amazing tools athletes can use.

Plastic is a hot topic right now and lots of people are racing to find scalable, recycling solutions. As we at Clean City are contemplating the best ways to upcycle plastic here in Chitwan, several people have shared news of plastic being used to pave roads. In Ghana and India, entrepreneurs have integrated recycled plastic into asphalt composite to pave roads. Although this might seem like a brilliant idea to tackle the global plastic problem, it is important to consider how paving surfaces with impermeable materials will not only increase flash floods, but also reduce the amount of rainwater that naturally infiltrates land and refills our groundwater. Agriculture, industry and civilization depend on the water cycle to restore our aquifers. Not to mention over time, as the road weathers, plastic tar roads will inevitably break down into micro plastics contaminating the soil and groundwater, which could pose a much greater challenge to remediate. With record breaking temperatures, increasing frequency and intensity of droughts, wildfires and storms globally; we must strive to redesign systems and infrastructure to work within nature’s limits, rather than against the flow of things ~ Everything is interconnected and we must consider the long-term implications of our actions. Yes, we need to find solutions to plastic waste, but we must recognize how short-term solutions can cause more harm than good. #ecologicaldesign #plasticpollution #WWJD

The time spent over the last four days has been some of the most potent and accelerated I've ever experienced. In the heat of eclipses and auspicious alignments... Being a part of the UN braintrust working towards the environment and oceans, being immersed at Nexus and staying, playing & praying at the exquisite Assemblage in NYC. • Weaving with influencers from every sector, together legitimately tackling the largest issues of today. Alliances that will last a lifetime, opportunities to serve the whole. The inoculation of regenerative culture into the collective, bridging the old & the new... From inequality, to youth outreach, to ending sex trafficking and human slavery, to standing with our indigenous relatives around the rights of nature globally, & so so much more. Deep bows to everyone who was a part of this, new and ancient friends. • I am so f*cking inspired faith quadrupled within the clarity of purpose I bring to whole systems thinking and to continue to bring love, compassion, presence & embodied values of incorruptibility in the space of institutions, money, persona, community etc. the mission is clear & we must work together in the brief window of time we have to tip the scales. • Big big gracias to @alexisneely @davidtheweber @danielamoves @magdalenasartori & so many others for the opportunity to be with soul family and ceremony at this juncture in collective orchestration. I love you dearly. • • • #earth #wins #un #unity #unify #mission #purpose #together #wearenexus #nexus #nyc #causes #founders #creators #connector #alliance #meta #ecopreneur #artist #wholesystems #pollinate #magic

“Kyushu is one of the southernmost islands of Japan, where there is evidence that grazing in forests has occurred since the thirteenth century. This region is characterized by wide seasonal variation in temperature and rainfall that totals well over 80 inches per year, and by its volcanic and mountainous terrain. These conditions set the stage for a set of agricultural practices that need to consider the dangers of soil erosion and take measures for soil conservation. In this context a production system combining farming, animal husbandry, and forestry has long persisted. In a region known as Oita, 80 percent of the land is in forest. Some farmers there have introduced a species of oak called Kunugi, using the logs from the trees for shiitake mushroom production. Sometimes, the forest is also used as woodland grazing land for cattle. In one report farmers said they derived 40 percent of their income from shiitake and 30 percent from cattle, making the integrated system a significant portion of their income.” From SILVOPASTURE by Steve Gabriel ( @wellspringforestfarmschool )

Thinking Like a Mountain “We reached the old wolf in time to watch a fierce green fire dying in her eyes. I realized then, and have known ever since, that there was something new to me in those eyes — something known only to her and to the mountain..... I thought that because fewer wolves meant more deer, that no wolves would mean hunters’ paradise. But after seeing the green fire die, I sensed that neither the wolf nor the mountain agreed with such a view. . . . That perhaps if we perceive the Earth’s parts—soil, mountains, rivers, atmosphere, and so on—as organs, or parts of organs, of a coordinated whole, each part with a definite function. And, if we could see this whole, as a whole, through a great period of time, we might perceive not only organs with coordinated functions, but possibly also that process of consumption and replacement which in biology we call the metabolism, or growth. In such a case we would have all the visible attributes of a living thing, which we do not now realize to be such because it is too big, and its life processes too slow.” -Aldo Leopold #wholesystems #systemstheory #systemsthinking

So happy with #todaysharvest of beans, eggplants, longevity spinach, and the first tomato from the #hugelkultur 🍅🙂 🎥 I did a video walk through of the property this morning, showing our progress in the #foodforest and gardens. We've come such a long way since moving here last November, starting with just a couple herbs and seedling trees. 🌱 Now we have dozens of fruit trees, perennial vegetables and various support plants in the ground as well as a ton of annuals and some really cool experimental stuff going on. Super excited to be feeding ourselves, and to have this opportunity to practice #permaculture on a .18 acre city lot in #westpalmbeach. The video tour will be up on YouTube soon after some editing, I'm really looking forward to hearing your feedback! 😁🌴 #homestead #permaculturegarden #perennials #veggies #tropicalfruit #growyourownfood #urbanfarming #veggiegarden #backyardfoodforest #regenerativeagriculture #sustainable #wholesystems #natureisabundant

An incredibly productive weekend in the books! Planted new trees, brewed a couple compost tea batches, finished a keyline design installation, built a large (hopefully) deer-proof tree nursery and garden space. We chopped and stacked a large amount of firewood, built a new wood rack and felled another tree for fish habitat. Next weekend I’ll be planting bare root perennials along the earthwork installation and doing more compost tea brews as we approach full leaf-out in the northwoods. Thanks for all the help friends of Earthmoon!

Picking fresh greens and radishes from Grandma's garden. Part of The Permaculture Parent's teaching resources will be around how to involve young children in the family garden. My daughter at the age of three already knows many plants, herbs and vegetables. Another aspect of this teaching will be awareness that the ability to have a garden is a privilege and not everyone who might want to have a garden is able to or has access to one. A big part of permaculture is thinking systemically and wholistically and using many different teaching opportunities as entry points into other conversations. Connecting the dots and making visible, patterns and relationships. #wholesystems #systemsthinking #permaculture #PermieVibe #kidsandplants #ThePermacultureParent #growyourown #gardening #kidsandherbs
