Sustainable Food for the Globe.  Permaculture.  A very  informative article about the ethics and philosophy of permaculture.  "

People who follow permaculture use seven principles to help them.

  • They observe their environment and slowly study the interaction of most life prior to making changes
  • They observe methods to obtain and store energy.
  • They create a harvest and recycle waste.
  • They use renewable resources and services, regulate their procedures and seek feedback.
  • Changes with an environment are first designed from detailed patterns.
  • They integrate, not segregate plants and respect diversity.
  • They operate in small areas, use edges and respect boundaries.  +++++

The cooperative’s female members have decided to use the extra income for vocational training in eight communities. Most include marginalised women from outside the cooperative. A proportion of the funding is used to provide seed capital for business ideas. Arrosteguis’s group has invested in an eco-efficient oven to bake goods for sale locally. Other micro-enterprises include dairy products, handicrafts, natural medicines and beauty services.

The problem isn’t that young people aren’t interested in farming — it’s that millennials, carrying the burden of weighty student loans, simply can’t afford it. Which is why the National Young Farmers Coalition is launching the “Farming is a Public Service” campaign, asking for an amendment to the Public Service Loan Forgiveness Program to include farmers. +++++

Letter from Lima: What's Wrong with the Climate Movement?

Letter from Lima: What's Wrong with the Climate Movement? | Food Security, Permaculture, & Environment | Scoop.it
Here in Peru and the Andes, the high mountain glaciers—essential for crops and drinking water—are melting.  South America’s magnificent Amazonian rainforests, the “lungs of the planet,” are rapidly being excavated for oil or minerals, or are being chopped down. The oceans, Atlantic and Pacific, rich in marine life, are heating up, acidifying and dying. The continent’s precious agricultural soils, grasslands and watersheds, some of the planet’s most important repositories (known as carbon sinks) for CO2 and greenhouse gases are steadily being destroyed by genetically engineered monocrops, toxic chemical fertilizers and pesticides.

Degraded, decarbonized, eroding, Latin America’s farmlands are rapidly losing their capacity to sequester carbon and produce nutrient-dense food for a growing population. Across the Western Hemisphere, North and South, increasingly unpredictable and often violent weather has become the new norm.

"Plus, if you cast a swift, wide net across the other science out there, it turns up some pretty astonishing results. Studies show that mushrooms can help break down baby diapers and oil spills and harmful bacteria. Entrepreneurs are using mushrooms to replace Styrofoam in packing materials and car parts and turn them into home insulation. Some scientists even think certain kinds of mushrooms can help serve as a carbon sink and thus help mitigate climate change."
