Seattle builds nation’s largest food forest | SmartPlanet

Seattle builds nation’s largest food forest | SmartPlanet | soul rebels | Scoop.it

In Seattle’s Beacon Hill neighborhood, plans are in place to turn an empty seven acre lot that didn’t receive much attention (expect from the occasional lawn mower) into a “food forest” for everyone to use. And when it’s complete, the Beacon Food Forest will be the largest public food forest in the United States, according to the Seattle news website Crosscut. It will look something like this:

[A]n entire acre will feature large chestnuts and walnuts in the overstory, full-sized fruit trees like big apples and mulberries in the understory, and berry shrubs, climbing vines, herbaceous plants, and vegetables closer to the ground.

Further down the path an edible arboretum full of exotic looking persimmons, mulberries, Asian pears, and Chinese haws will surround a sheltered classroom for community workshops. Looking over the whole seven acres, you’ll see playgrounds and kid space full of thornless mini edibles adjacent to community gardening plots, native plant areas, a big timber-frame gazebo and gathering space with people barbecuing, a recreational field, and food as far as you can see.

[...]

In a food forest, everything from the tree canopy to the roots is edible or useful in some way.

Imagination, Imaginal Cells, and Evolutionary Leaps | The Rabbit Hole

Imaginal cell lie dormant inside a caterpillar's body, becoming activated within the chrysalis to allow a butterfly to ultimately emerge. Like seeds of pure potential encoded into the caterpillar's DNA, imaginal cells are the ingredients of metamorphosis.*

 

Deepak Chopra discusses the metaphor of the butterfly to suggest worlds of possibility inherent in our consciousness that can facilitate our own transformation. What future have you imagined for yourself?

ddrrnt's curator insight, November 28, 2012 6:51 PM

Kuru is a grassroots initiative that is focused on the "radical reinterpretation of what it means to be 'human' by changing those stories and systems that no longer serve us, specifically those involving food, education, money, and community.


The 11 social activists and cultural visionaries who are spreading this vision come from around the world to resist the currents of the mainstream in favor of "community and smallness".  


They are aiming to crowdfund the development of a social network where local experiments, transitions stories, and indigenous wisdom can be cross-fertilized around the world.  


Please donate to Kuru's Indigogo.

Pam Warhurst: How we can eat our landscapes | Video 13min

TED Talks What should a community do with its unused land? Plant food, of course.

 

With energy and humor, Pam Warhurst tells  the story of how she and a growing team of volunteers came together to turn plots of unused land into communal vegetable gardens, and to change the narrative of food in their community.

 

Pam Warhurst cofounded Incredible Edible, an initiative in Todmorden, England dedicated to growing food locally by planting on unused land throughout the community. 

 

Warning: Pam Warhurst is English, and she talks English English ... so depending on where you're from, you might really have to tune those ears to follow her.

Pedagogy of Freedom: Ethics, Democracy, and Civic Courage

Pedagogy of Freedom is a stirring culmination of Paulo Freire’s life work. It is in no way a conclusion or a summation: it is a text that urges its readers to become, to reach towards still untapped possibility. The themes of Freire’s earlier writing are extended here into thoughtful explorations of ethics and democracy and the ways in which they may release a sense of agency in the long exploited and cruelly silenced. Moreover, he has new things to say about ideology and freedom in a world marked by a threatening ‘globalization’ and an unprecedented manipulation by media. As before, he speaks of ‘passion,’ ‘love,’ and ‘caring;’ and, each time he does so, it is as if his hand grasps each one of our shoulders, urging us on and on.

Medewerkers van de nieuwe organisatie ‘De Gezonde Stad’ trakteerden gisteren Amsterdammers op groente, fruit en kruiden van een eetbare abri op het metroperron van station Amsterdam Bijlmer Arena. Het is maar één van de vele voorbeelden van de opkomst van stadslandbouw die door de crisis versneld wordt. Op braakliggende grond en in leegstaande gebouwen, in Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Utrecht of Eindhoven, zien ondernemers kansen voor het verbouwen van eetbaar groen in de stad.

In Creative Economy, Workers need Autonomy, Mastery, Purpose

In Creative Economy, Workers need Autonomy, Mastery, Purpose | soul rebels | Scoop.it
If, as Pink has suggested elsewhere, we're moving into an age where entrepreneurship and the ability to think laterally as well as deeply will be the most financially rewarding, if the risk takers and meaning-makers ultimately win, then workers, whether employed professionally by someone else, or alone in the studio before a blank canvas, need autonomy to be at their best. They need mastery.

They need purpose.

New Rules for the New Economy

New Rules for the New Economy | soul rebels | Scoop.it

1) Embrace the Swarm. As power flows away from the center, the competitive advantage belongs to those who learn how to embrace decentralized points of control.

2) Increasing Returns. As the number of connections between people and things add up, the consequences of those connections multiply out even faster, so that initial successes aren't self-limiting, but self-feeding.

3) Plentitude, Not Scarcity. As manufacturing techniques perfect the art of making copies plentiful, value is carried by abundance, rather than scarcity, inverting traditional business propositions.

4) Follow the Free. As resource scarcity gives way to abundance, generosity begets wealth. Following the free rehearses the inevitable fall of prices, and takes advantage of the only true scarcity: human attention.

5) Feed the Web First. As networks entangle all commerce, a firm's primary focus shifts from maximizing the firm's value to maximizing the network's value. Unless the net survives, the firm perishes.

6) Let Go at the Top. As innovation accelerates, abandoning the highly successful in order to escape from its eventual obsolescence becomes the most difficult and yet most essential task.

7) From Places to Spaces. As physical proximity (place) is replaced by multiple interactions with anything, anytime, anywhere (space), the opportunities for intermediaries, middlemen, and mid-size niches expand greatly.

8) No Harmony, All Flux. As turbulence and instability become the norm in business, the most effective survival stance is a constant but highly selective disruption that we call innovation.

9) Relationship Tech. As the soft trumps the hard, the most powerful technologies are those that enhance, amplify, extend, augment, distill, recall, expand, and develop soft relationships of all types.

10) Opportunities Before Efficiencies. As fortunes are made by training machines to be ever more efficient, there is yet far greater wealth to be had by unleashing the inefficient discovery and creation of new opportunities.

Physicists Find Evidence That The Universe Is A 'Giant Brain'

Physicists Find Evidence That The Universe Is A 'Giant Brain' | soul rebels | Scoop.it

The idea of the universe as a 'giant brain' has been proposed by scientists - and science fiction writers - for decades. But now physicists say there may be some evidence that it's actually true.


According to a study published in Nature's Scientific Reports, the universe may be growing in the same way as a giant brain - with the electrical firing between brain cells 'mirrored' by the shape of expanding galaxies.

 

The results of a computer simulation suggest that "natural growth dynamics" - the way that systems evolve - are the same for different kinds of networks - whether its the internet, the human brain or the universe as a whole. (...0

 

The team's simulation modelled the very early life of the universe, shortly after the big bang, by looking at how quantum units of space-time smaller than subatomic particles 'networked' with each other as the universe grew.

She ends with speaking about a gift currency of how money is issued to make the transaction happens but disappears afterwards. Highest evolution is a gifted currency.

When you stop looking for a job - a better world appears | soul rebels | Scoop.it

The red line is employment.

Do you see what I see? I see that the connection to the economy and employment has been broken. Broken by the use of a global workforce and by the use of technology.

If you see this too, then we are all confronted with the question - what do we do if there are no jobs? The quick answer is to stop looking for them.

Neuroscientists are trying to work out why the brain does so much when it seems to be doing nothing at all.

 

“Connections between neurons turn over in minutes, hours, days and weeks,” says Raichle. “The structure of the brain will be different tomorrow but we will still remember who we are.”

Has the Time Come for Sacred Economics?

Has the Time Come for Sacred Economics? | soul rebels | Scoop.it
We don't need to get rid of money, says one thinker. We just need to make sure it celebrates, not denigrates, the sacred in life.

Eisenstein argues that rather than abandoning money all together, we must work to make it align with our values.

A big part of that is a rediscovery of the gift economy. A world where we do favors and provide services for people not out of like-for-like exchange, barter, or trade—but simply because we recognize our interdependence and act out of love and trust in communities we belong to.

#Synchronicity: The Bridge between Matter and Mind

True synchronicities are more than mere chance occurrences. They are characterized by a sense of meaning and numinousness. They provide a bridge between inner and outer worlds, between our private thoughts and external, objective realities. Within a synchronicity, patterns of external events mirror an inner experience; likewise dreams and fantasies may seem to flood over into the external world. To distinguish synchronicities from mere chance occurrences Carl Jung stressed that they must always involve "meaningful coincidence" that lie beyond any explanation involving causal links and connections. They reveal to us an underlying world of patterns, forms and connections that transcend any division between the mental and the material.

 

Synchronicities also act as markers in time, moments of transformation within a life that occur in chairos, when “the time is right”. Thus, while causality ties us to our past, synchronicities can link us to our future. They can also act as significant encounters when a door is opened through which we can pass. One notable encounter took place between the psychologist Carl Jung and the physicist Wolfgang Pauli. This meeting of people from two very different worlds will be explored during the course, including the way it led to Pauli’s remarkable series of dreams which caused him to explore the relationship between psyche and matter and believe that the time was at hand for the "resurrection of spirit” within the world of matter.
