Greetings from my Living Room Chair

"To understand the profound importance of regenerative agriculture, the kind of farming that builds natural capital, we need to see it not as a fringe or retrograde activity- "unable to feed the world", as conventional agronomists would claim- but as a heroic and undersung achievement in the face of overwhelming institutional neglect, cultural dissipation, economic monopolies and dire ecological challenges from chemical, nuclear and genetic pollution, climate change and an eroding resource base in the land and in society."
~ Peter Bane

The practitioners I work for gifted me with Peter Bane's new book, The Permaculture Handbook: Garden Farming For Town and Country. I read the first chapter yesterday. It made me feel all tingly and excited inside.

The book was a parting gift.  My job ends in a couple of weeks.  I've got plans for what I'll do next.  Garden farming is one of them.
