Celebrate/Happy International Permaculture Day May 6 2012

 
http://www.permacultureday.info/  (check out this website to see permaculture happening around the world)
"All of us would acknowledge our own work as modest; it is the totality of such modest work that is impressive. Great changes are taking place. Why not join us in the making of a better future. Ingenio Patet Campus. The field lies open to the intellect". Bill Mollison, 2 May 2012


for something interesting, go to the South Coast Permaculture archives to see over 10 years of activity in our region!  South Coast Permaculture Listserve (scpg-l8Htz2EyxgbQT0dZR+AlfA@public.gmane.org) was formed after a Permaculture Design Course with Bill Mollison in Ojai in 1997, and still serves our region as an over-arching umbrella listserve that allows all groups & local guilds to post their activities.  We thank John Howe who was one of the participants of that PDC, who gave his time and skills to set up this service for the permaculture community, in a way that still functions today.  The level of activity represented in these archives is phenomenal, many groups participating and furthering sustainability & permaculture in our region.

Home Power • Permaculture • Peak Oil • Gardeners • Farmers • Renewable Energy Contractors
Entrepreneurs • Public Officials • Wastewater Professionals • Educators • Students
Workshop will include everything needed to successfully build and operate a biogas digester, a basic introduction to the microbiology taking place during the anaerobic digestion process with an emphasis on troubleshooting problems.
Participants are GUARANTEED to come away with the skills needed to consistently produce flammable biogas wherever they are, day or night, rain or shine!

Workshop cost: $225

Includes: Copy of Warren Weisman’s full-color “Energy from Organic Waste: Vol. 1. Introduction to Biogas” booklet; complete building plans, material list and step-by-step instructions for building a heated, 600 gallon home biogas digester; organic, vegetarian meals provided.

Fwd: Free Tix to The Soil Solution Screening in Sausalito

Hi,


I'm writing in case you have any friends in Northern California that would be interested in seeing The Soil Solution screening on May 12th, at 11:30 am at the Sausalito Film Festival. The organizers of the fest have graciously given us some free tickets which we would love to distribute.

The Soil Solution explores the world of soil and documents the ranchers, farmers, and scientists who conserve, protect, and regenerate this valuable natural resource. Healthy soil, as vital to our survival as healthy air and water, provides a biologically-based, low cost solution to global climate change.

Featured Film at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival 2012.

'A Farm For the Future' - the full length film on peak oil, farming & permaculture/YOU TUBE

'A Farm For the Future' - the full length film on peak oil, farming & 
permaculture
Rebecca Hosking & Tim Green | Monday, 14th May 2012
http://www.permaculture.co.uk/videos/farm-future-full-length-film-peak-oil-farming-permaculture

In 2009, Rebecca Hosking and Tim Green made an hour long TV programme 
for BBC2 called 'A Farm For the Future' exploring how peak oil will 
effect farming and food distribution and why permaculture design, forest 
gardening and other regenerative agriculture practices could help us to 
cope with soaring fossil fuel prices that drive current agriculture 
practices which relies on fertlisers, mechanisation and distribution by 
transitioning to organic practices, diversifying yields and relocalising 
food supply. Millions of people watched the first screening – so much so 
that the BBC rescreened the film within weeks. There were countless 
requests for the BBC to release a DVD of the film from all over the 
world but sadly they declined to do so. We are therefore posting this 
version of what has become a turning point for permaculture in the 
mainstream media.

With thanks to Tim and Rebecca for making this film and the BBC Natural 
History Unit in Bristol for commissioning it. What is certain is that we 
need more films like this and more support for the innovative and 
talented film makers who make them.

Art of Mentoring: Creating Resilient Mentors, Village, & Community

Dear Friend,

For anyone looking to deepen their experience as a mentor and trainer, and to experience the art and alchemy of what it takes create a village... we recommend the upcoming Art of Mentoring - facilited by Jon Young, the 8 Shields Institute, and a team of experienced mentors and facilitators from around the country and world. 

This year happening in the Santa Cruz Mountains the second week of August.

More Information below.

Art of Mentoring

Creating Resilient Mentors, Village & Community

August 6-12, 2012

Santa Cruz Mountains, California

Facilitated by Jon Young, Mark Morey, Lauren Dalberth, David Hage & a Team of experienced leaders, facilitators, and educators from around the world.




Because it Takes a Village to…
  • Engage the gifts of our elders
  • Create essential rites of passage  for our teens
  • Ensure parents are supported and thriving
  • Welcome our babies into a world of open arms
  • Feel deep compassion and gratitude for All of Our Relations
  • Understand your gifts and how to apply them in service to the people.

Course Description

The Art of Mentoring is a week-long, experiential, nature based program designed to help us remember these old ways and learn to apply them to our modern communities. Guided by a team of experienced leaders and facilitators from around the world, Art of Mentoring participants come together to experience, learn from and co-create a joyful, engaged learning community. You will walk away with tools and embodied practices of regenerative community design, mentoring techniques, deep nature connection, and an amplified passion for learning. Deep in all of our roots, there are stories of our ancestors living in healthy, regenerative communities—villages where people of all ages were in deep relationship with the land, each other, and themselves. Our hope is to activate and inspire you to create healthy communities right in your own back yard! 

The course is taught through group experiential activities, lectures, storytelling, and music. We will be both indoors and outside exploring in the field.

This is a Family Friendly Event!

Creating a village where the whole family is welcome, supported and growing together is an important element to the Art of Mentoring culture. In that spirit, there are youth nature connection programs for children aged 4-12 and a teen program for youth ages 13-18. Both the teen program and the youth program run concurrently with the adult program, overlapping for most meals (read further for more information).

Youth Program

The Youth & Kids’ programs include sensory awareness games and exercises, earth living skills, native scout skills, arts and crafts, music and storytelling, and getting to know the natural world through “native eyes.” Children learn these skills and knowledge through artful mentoring that taps into their passions and interests.

The Youth Program for children 7-12 old and the Kid’s Program for 4-6 year-olds make it possible for the whole family to attend the Art of Mentoring and is a critical part of the living culture of awareness. The children add the spark of playfulness as they interact with workshop participants at mealtimes and the evenings. Participants also get to witness mentoring at work with children as the children explore, imagine and play outside with the guidance of a regional network of instructors. The children in turn have an enlivened experience of what it might be like to live in a village surrounded by adults looking out for them.


AOM Teen Program: Mountains to Sea Teen Rendezvous

The AOM Teen Program is designed to immerse teens in wilderness living and adventure. Guided by a team of experienced nature connection mentors, the teens will connect more deeply to the natural world, their peers and themselves through daily activities including primitive skills, tracking, awareness games, scout skills, team building, etc.

The week will culminate with an overnight backpack leaving from the Art of Mentoring base camp and heading out from the mountains to the sea and back again.

Enriching the experience and making it more than “overnight camp,” the Teen Program will have connections with a community of elders, aunts, uncles, and youth that have formed around the Art of Mentoring. The teens will leave with an embodied experience of what it might be like to live in a village surrounded by adults looking out for them. They will play an important role in bringing back the stories of the landscape to the village at large.

Opportunities for Returning Participants!

This year there is a 2nd level experience in the Art of Mentoring for folks who have previously attended an Art of Mentoring and want to deepen their experience being a mentor for others. This “Ring 2 experience will include staff guided nature connection and core routine activities deepening your capacity to guide others in nature connection and core routines. There is a limit of 20 in this program.

court hearing energy project may18

Dear SDPG community,

There are many industrial energy projects proposed for the deserts of the western US and Baja Mex. which
will impact tribal heritage, biodiversity, and human health. All the energy generated will be
transmitted out of the (low income) areas where it is generated and sold to ratepayers in coastal cities.
Many of the energy projects' proponents are positioning them as "renewable energy", although upon close
scrutiny, they are not even carbon neutral.  If you are concerned about creating a viable renewable energy
future, protecting biodiversity, tribal heritage and human health, then please attend a court hearing
tomorrow at the San Diego Federal Courthouse about the Ocotillo Wind Express project that is proposed for
the deserts of Imperial Valley. The hearing is set for 2:00 PM on Friday, May 18th before Judge Hayes at the
Federal District Courthouse in San Diego on the Quechan Tribe’s Motion for a Temporary Restraining
Order.  Judge Hayes is in Courtroom 4.  The interested public is of course welcome to attend. Parking can be
tough so take trolley, carpool and give your self time for travel and parking. Thank You. Jane Higginson
Here's a link that shows a map and the address of the courthouse.
