Reader comments on this previous post on heating issues encourage me to post this interesting interview with Portland, ME permaculturalist Lisa Fernandes on gardening, resilience, and abundance. (Portland has the largest permacultural MeetUp in the world.) You might not agree with everything Fernandes says, but man, is her garden awesome.
(I’d post a link to “permaculture,” but permaculture is really to be found out there “in the dirt,” and in conversation. Permaculture is a little Occupation-y in that way.)
Fernandes: “Beauty is the opposite of poverty.” I guess this video does have implications for political economy….
And I love it when Fernandes uses “mycelial mat” as a metaphor for organizing her life. Garden geekery! Keen followers of the Occupations movement might think of this as a useful metaphor for horizontal scaling. So there’s another implication for political economy…
