Salon of Urban Permaculture: Constructed Nature at The Digital Garden on Leetsdale

July 17, 2010 from 4pm to 8pm
“The idea of nature contains, though often unnoticed, an extraordinary amount of human history” - Benjamin FranklinWhat separates "nature" from "civilization"? How natural, really, are the places we consider "wild"? Before we can understand what an honorable and ethical place for humans in the environment would look like, we must realize the inherent humanness of nature itself. Join the Digital Garden on Leetsdale for SoUP number three, an evening of exploring the constructed reality of…See More

Garden design resources: Planting Calendar and Polyculture Web

Cross-posted from the Wild Green Yonder



As the skies clear over the Front Range and the air begins to warm (at least for now) my thoughts are turning increasingly to designing my garden for this year. My housemates and I have already created…

Autumn's Invitation

From the Wild Green Yonder



Fall has never been my favorite season. Going back to school, shivering in the first snowfall, darker and darker evenings, watching the trees become stripped and gangly… it all seemed so depressing. But as I’ve slowly learned to listen to nature’s patterns, I’m starting to see autumn as a time of precarious abundance, a time when we can live off… Continue

The Atriplex Project: A Permaculture Database for the Front Range

From the Wild Green Yonder



One of permaculture's hallmarks is polyculture: the mixed cultivation of a wide variety of bioregionally-appropriate species. In a process called "guild building", permaculture designers select plants that will mutually enhance each others' growth while providing their human stewards with a yield. In the classic Native American polyculture of maize, beans, and… Continue

Some reading material for the rest of your body

In the last week, I've come across a couple articles in my daily overdose of newsfeeds that I found uncommonly, well, human. Rather than inundate me with grim statistics or get me all riled up with innovative solutions, both of these essays struck the non-cerebral parts of me in a refreshingly poignant sort of way.



I realized that, just like the snow that's slowly melting outside my window, this kind of… Continue

Thanks for offering to talk about the competition. I've forwarded your info to Lea, who is currently working on organizing everything. I hope you don't mind. I look forward to talking with you too.

Hmm...at this point, I just don't know.

I feel like my mind keeps going in circles with different streams of beliefs! I definitely think oil prices will keep becoming more 'extreme' in their volatility but as I am writing my thesis on this, I am just trying to take everything in, and wait on the analysis. So many ideas, perspectives, etc., this is quite the time to be witnessing. But thanks for putting that article up--it's refreshing to see such a radically new perspective.

Sorry it only took me a month to reply!

Hiya adam,

Wanted to ask you what you thought of that article you posted on why oil and gas prices are so low. Do you really believe that? Porque? I'm so curious because I just can't get my mind to understand/accept that argument, but i generally agree with oildrum everything, so....

Greetings Bredren,

I had the pleasure of meeting Andrew Foust this past summer at Yestermorrow in Vermont. When I saw you were profile, I thought of him as a good contact...then I saw that you had taken a class with him. Tis a small, green world after all. I look forward to connecting with you and finding more out about Ecosa and tapping your internet savvy. Keep me posted on your adventures and the move to Denver and let me know if I can be of any service in your pursuits. Warm regards,

Ben

I live at 24th and Vine, next to City Park in a duplex with a medicinal herb garden & a baby plum tree in the front yard and squash, broccoli, peppers, etc in the back..Call me at 630-885-9339 or email: sacreddynamics@gmail dot com

I ditto my good friend Dana's comment! I work for Denver City Councilwoman Judy Montero and I want to take advantage of what ever resources/actions the city can offer (we have a great new Greenprint program) -- yet, there are just so many possibilities! And, I'm a new to the issue of permaculture so if you have suggestions (pilot programs, speakers, etc.), we'd LOVE to hear them.
Best,
Teresa

Hi Adam and welcome! You've got just the right background to be really helpful to the rest of the country. I'd like to suggest that you help document Transition things you see happening in Brooklyn. We're using Transition New York to gather and organize people in Brooklyn. You'll find full directions on our startup page.

Wow, Adam, how lucky are we to have you as a member of Transition Denver!
We need to talk...can you call me at 303-300-3547?
