The Toby Hemenway – Permaculture Podcast!

But first, In the NewZ (with special credit to Diner newshounds Surly and JoeP): Big bank launders drug money, uber bank buys big bank, to no account; Frackers acting like mafia; A new housing bubble built on lies and malinvestment; Bio-terrorists @ monster corporation in charge of the global food supply; Masked mercenaries patrolling public lands on behalf of industrial billionaires; Swat raids to kill baby deer? The NSA knows every character as you type it (Liberals seem fine with that, while conservatives seem to want that power in private hands.) And Gaia seems awakened somehow, like maybe the next thirty years aren’t going to look anything like what we have come to expect, least of all what we are told it will look like by those who maintain and control BAU.

We don’t shy away from serious issues, here at the Diner. Just as much, we are about solutions, which we are trying to bring to the forefront. Permaculture, growing your own food, making habitat for all living things, is part of that. I’m convinced it’s a fundamental aspect of any scenario by which humanity navigates industrial collapse with anything like grace.

Toby Hemenway, author of Gaia’s Garden: A Guide to Home-scale Permaculture, seems to agree. He and I, along with Monsta666, discuss that in this Wednesday, Aug 07, 2013 Doomstead Diner, Monsta of Doom podcast. Too, we talk about what permaculture is, and what might be accomplished with it. We talk about water, and Toby’s epiphany, from Biotech career, to permaculture evangelist for the earth. We talk about community.

From the Diner community,

WHD

(PS – The artist who’s music appears, goes by the name Human)

" As a daily reader of all of the doomsday blogs, e.g. the Diner, Nature Bats Last, Zerohedge, Scribbler, etc… I must say that I most look forward to your “off the microphone” rants. Your analysis, insights, and conclusions are always logical, well supported, and clearly articulated – a trifecta not frequently achieved."- Joe D
