There is no question

Permaculture is defined as the study of how potential, efficient, and permanent energy move inside the functions of a relationship.  This phenomenal concept is meant to be applied to systems that humans encounter. In the book, Introduction to Permaculture by Bill Mollison and Reny Mia Slay, Permaculture is, “…about designing sustainable human settlements [that use] … the philosophy and approach to land use which weaves together microclimate, annual and perennial plants, animals, soils, water management, and human needs into intricately connected, productive communities. This concept is meant to integrate itself into the current mainstream culture as a solution to the problems that plague our society.

The purpose of Permaculture is to provide permanent energy for a permanent community  to create permanent opportunity for members inside a community of people. This can inspires us to know that:

There is no question that our world is in a state of danger. When most would call me some sort of cynic, they could not deny there own uncertainty about how our politicians are planning, our gas prices are raising, and our taxes being used. Even though I depend on our government and our forefront on the game of capitalism, I find it necessary that we all find a way to survive circumstances where an existence of government could be obsolete. We know about how successful empires like the Romans, the Spaniards and even the Germans all crashed and burned due to their unsustainable paths.

What of the corn, soy, and wheat? How do they affect our soil? What of the wars, injustice and greed? How do they affect our communities? There has been a forgotten concept of purpose. Why do we eat? Why do we dress? Why do we work? Why do we build the homes they way we do? We have monocultures because it is the only way we know how to grow food. And we have war,greed and injustice because it is the only way we know how to regulate power. We eat because it is tasty instead of nutritious. We work because it is profitable and not helpful. We dress because it is fashionable and not functional. And we build homes because they are popular and not structural.

As Americans, we are very opinionated. But when do we question our own values? How do we see ourselves in our own communities? How do our decisions affect other people? How can we change what needs to be changed as individuals? The purpose of this blog is to reflect and define why we are the being we are today and how we can make our existence more meaningful.

As an idealist, I hope to gain a diversity of insight and opinions with this web opportunity.
