A reasonable question…why, some would even say, a good question!
Isn’t it about time we asked it?
Isn’t it about time we stepped out of the ridiculous matrix we have trapped ourselves in?
I have spent the morning updating the Seeds for Sale page…here’s a link to the Permaculture Seeds Treasure Trove…

There are problems all over the Earth.
I don’t have to make a list…you know what is happening that is causing so much concern.
The problems are all rotating around destruction and involve peoples of all cultures and religions.
Despite all our differences, there is really only one common denominator we all share…Mother Earth!
Despite years of belonging to a particular religion, of all the sermons I listened to, the words, “Mother Earth,” were never mentioned by any man.
Surely we need to teach our children love and respect for our home?
Surely this should be at the forefront of all religious teaching?
The one missing element of understanding is Mother Earth.
The “Financial Markets,” predicated on what is extracted from Mother Earth, care little for the destruction caused in extractive processes.
What is left behind, the degradation and loss, is of no concern.
The “Markets,” are talked up and down, as though there are multiple Earths!
We know there is only one.
Sacred is not to be found in Bank Vaults; Parliaments; Stock Exchanges; Temples; Churches…but on where each one of us is today: Mother Earth.
Each bomb, bar of gold, barrel of oil, tank of gas, is painfully extracted, at great environmental cost…the real price of which is never, ever measured; for to attempt to do so would crash all the economic markets!
We are living in denial, in a Disneyfied world of our own warped imaginings, where the insane is justified and mainstream!
At some point we may just realise that…
…our greatest common bond is not our humanity, it is what nurtures our humanity…our Mother.
Coppiced wood makes one neat pile to be used in the wood stove next winter.
The building of the next pile is under-way.

There are over 600 blogs in the archives on this site.
Here in Ireland, what happened in the sell-out was very dramatic and actually happened in ONE night, in November 2008, when our elected government signed over the sovereignty of the Irish people in a meeting that took place in the middle of the night with NO minutes recorded!

A journey via Permaculture that has led me to give up smoking, become a Vegetarian and evolve into a Vegan.
Happy to be an Economic Terrorist…I rarely shop, so that makes me an enemy of the Corporate State…and anyone who wants to rant about me being a Conspiracy Theorist…well, I live in the real world and watched as Ireland was handed over to the Corporations, mostly banks, bankers and greed-mongers…if this resonates with you then be prepared to be dismissed as a C.T.!
You can’t buy anything on this site…everything I advocate comes for free and I’m happy to welcome visitors to this Permaculture Smallholding and show them around, even send them off with free plants and advice on how to do permaculture.
A willow arbour. Free. No Garden centre involved here! No money, just the abundance and love and goodness that is Nature…beyond money and the Merchants of Greed!
The Permaculture Polytunnel this morning. Spilling over with food and seeds…Seeds are the bankable currency of the VERY near future! Why do think the US government shares the control of GM seeds with that Monster Monsanto?
