Permaculture! Getting skills to build our world in balance. NW Permaculture Convergence 10/14 - 16

Matt Bibeau will join Ani and Lyn to talk about permaculture.  What is it, and why is it important?  How can permaculture help us in these interesting times in which we find ourselves?  There is change all around us, and we know we need to transform our culture.  What tools does permacuture offer us on a local level? 

The Northwest Permaculture Convergence will be held October 14 - 16th. With supporting events around the convergence there are opportunities to get involved in this transformative movement; providing opportunities for our bio-region to take a leap forward in the work that we need to do to transition from a degenerative to a regenerative culture.

Our Dying Planet: An Ecologist's View of the Crisis We Face


Coral reefs are on track to become the first ecosystem actually eliminated from the planet. So says leading ecologist Peter F. Sale in this crash course on the state of the planet today. Sales draws from his own extensive work on coral reefs, and from recent research by other ecologists, to explore the many ways we are changing the earth and to explain why it matters.

Rambunctious Garden: Saving Nature in a Post-Wild World


A paradigm shift is roiling the environmental world. For decades people have unquestioningly accepted the idea that our goal is to preserve nature in its pristine, pre-human state. But many scientists have come to see this as an outdated dream that thwarts bold new plans to save the environment and prevents us from having a fuller relationship with nature.

Humans have changed the landscapes they inhabit since prehistory, and climate change means even the remotest places now bear the fingerprints of humanity. Emma Marris argues convincingly that it is time to look forward and create the "rambunctious garden," a hybrid of wild nature and human management.

Coral reefs are on track to become the first ecosystem actually eliminated from the planet, a potential eradication being caused by us. Human activities are creating enormous changes on this planet which sustains us, and the alarming plight of coral reefs is just one of these. On this episode of Locus Focus we talk with ecologist Peter Sale, whose new book Our Dying Planet uses the motif of endangered coral reefs to explore the many ways we are changing our planet and to explain why it matters. But despite the gloomy title, Sale's book emphasizes that a gloom-and-doom scenario is not inevitable.
