Another action-packed week on Project Dirt. Everything from draught-busting, to pond-making lessons, visits to the Brixton Eco House, Upcycling clothes, veg growing, CC conferences ... and you name it.
The Great Turning is a name for the essential adventure of our time: the shift from the industrial growth society to a life-sustaining civilization.
Whether or not it is recognized by corporate-controlled media, the Great Turning is a reality. Although we cannot know yet if it will take hold in time for humans and other complex life forms to survive, we can know that it is under way. And it is gaining momentum, through the actions of countless individuals and groups around the world. To see this as the larger context of our lives clears our vision and summons our courage.
So the question that the co-ordinators of this splendid social reporting project have asked me to look at here is to explore the links between Transition and permaculture. I guess for me, Transition was, from the beginning, seen as a kind of Trojan Horse. Becoming increasingly frustrated with what I saw as the permaculture movement holding a vitally important tool and set of insights but not seeming to be in any great hurry, either consciously or subconsciously, to share them beyond a small niche of like-minded people (something which is much less the case today but is still observable), I felt the strong need to ramp things up big time. Transition was created, as I say, as a kind of Trojan Horse, into which one could stuff permaculture, the psychology of change, etc. etc, and then manage to simply wheel it into the wider consciousness, sidling it past people who would glance over their shoulders and say “oh, it’s just Transition”.
