This project is a group aimed at the 3 main permaculture ethics.
Earth care, People care & Fair share.
This project connects people, funneling them together from different places on the internet to create a thriving life of surplus. This group is for Penticton, BC area.
This is done in many ways & is evolving as the group grows.
Basically its focus will be on working as a team / network to create a resilient, low stress life, possibly a completely different template than a standard 9-5 lifestyle.
Open ended ideas:
Growing a large amount of food & giving away or selling the surplus.
Purchasing land to grow and/or live on, or networking multiple property's to act as one.
Using special skill sets to take care of those in (& outside) the group, attempting to minimize use of currency.
Transition from using currency to any other means.
Reducing waste, sustainable practices, creating electricity and other energy on site.
Using the teams labour to trade & network with other people & business's.
Many other ways
What Is This For Me? Many things: mostly about simplifying my life, creating a strong foundation & connecting with like minds.
I would like to put less of my energy into making money & consuming products, and put more of it into resiliency, such as food, land use and beneficial connections with others who have similar interests.
What made me pursue this?
Basically asking too many questions!
I find it so strange that humans have been on this planet for so long, and still we have basic problems, basic needs that are still not resolved. When you keep digging for answers you start to fill in the gaps.
People are doing this all over the internet - and things are gaining momentum.
These answers are vague - click here --> 'The Why' <-- if you would like to read more.
The Current, General Proposal:
Through the process of Dynamic Facilitation & The Wisdom Council we regularly meetup and 'discuss' an issue. We then come to a sort or remedy. Then we attempt that remedy. Upon the next meeting we re-discuss or reassess the current state of the group and go from there.
The main goal is people care, earth care & fair share.
What Happens When We Come Together With The Same Purpose?
