Muttering on about, swaying between …the hopelessness of Plastic Pollution and the practicality of Permaculture, here’s some more thoughts, before the pix –

  • ‘‘Instead of feeling hopeless about our beautiful planet, Permaculture opened my eyes to the many simple solutions that can be adapted & applied to create a better world’’ Mel Chambers. PDC Graduate (Permaculture Design Course).    SEE HERE – to Learn more about Permaculture

  • CUBA : crisis of agriculture after Collapse of Soviet Union followed by US imposition of Trade Sanctions. Once it only grew sugar & was heavy handed with fertilisers and pesticides. Organic farming began, as a necessity. ‘‘People from abroad see us as a paradise of sustainable farmers, but we are not. We’re coming out of a very bad model of agriculture, to something better” (Guardian Environment 2/5/18, Food & Environment Reporting Network .US. FERN)    SEE HERE – about CUBA
  • RISC (Reading International Solidarity Centre): Gardens – sustainability & food security.  SEE HERE – about the Roof Garden
