     I look at it quite differently.   Lactofermenting a variety of foods at 
home is part of permaculture, not just something to do "when buying 
lab-cultured biodiverse probiotics are not available!"

     For ages, people all over the world have made and eaten lactoferments.   
 Only in modern commercial society have "consumers" started buying 
lab-cultured probiotics.    

     How did people change from being makers of things to "consumers?"

I attempted to sign up for this about a week ago, as well as 
the seedsavers list, but got a response that signup requires 
moderator approval, and no further response.

Sustainable is not good enough

 From the February essay in the Stella*Natura Calendar, by Ethan Roland

"But is sustainable enough? Taking a few steps back, to Kazakhstan,  
to Chile, to a global perspective, I'm not sure that we want to  
"sustain" what is happening right now: Climate change, mass  
extinction of species, overpopulation, peak oil, soil degradation,  
collapsing fisheries, deforestation...   We must go beyond  
"sustainability." We must REGENERATE the earth. Combining the  
productive and fruitful biodynamically cultivated landscapes with the  
eco-logical focus of permaculture design can create systems of  
holistic regeneration--farms, homes, and communities that give back  
to the natural world, healing the damage we have already done."

May I slip this in?

Biodynamic gardeners and teachers seek long term opportunity to share  
our life’s work.

Who we are: Barbara M V Scott and Woody Wodraska [see Biographies]  
are long-time Biodynamic gardeners and teachers. We teach people how  
to make conscious compost.  We  make and use the biodynamic  
preparations, grow vital garden seeds, formulate homeopathic flower  
essences, and know how to bring land and gardens into health and  
vitality. We bring with us a large cache of heirloom seeds from our  
18 years as a Biodynamic seed company.

Where We Wish To Be:   We will join with people already situated on  
rural land--a small community, farm, school or learning center--whose  
vision includes education, nutrition, right livelihood and a passion  
to bring the land into a high vibration.  We aim to be with people

missing email

It never arrived in my in-box, so I assumed it hadn't gone out. I usually get it right away.  I'll holler if it
happens again.  Glad to hear it went out. No response yet.

Do you maintain the Permaculture Online part of ibiblio by yourself? Or is it a collaboration?  I have just
looked at ibiblio's website so I am just getting a better idea of what you are all doing.

 Thanks for the notification,

Michael,

Futuristic Singing Ringing Tree Sculpture


Singing Ringing Tree, Burnley

Futuristic Singing Ringing Tree Sculpture

Looking like the wreckage of an Alien space craft, this Futuristic Sculpture is Art Jim, but not as we know
it. 
Commisioned by a forward thinking Burnley Council, The collection of tubes makes the strangest sounds
when the wind 
blows, which is often round the location at Crown POint, on the moorland overlooking Burnley. Seen in the
background is 
Pendle Hill, famous for the PENDLE WITCHES. Maybe in the sculpture, the myth lives on. Let me know what YOU think.
