What's for dinner?

Stew! A rich combination of pumpkin, sweet potato, rosemary and rabbit meat; washed down with a local Victorian red wine. Most of the ingredients were grown in my own yard according to the principles of permaculture. The wine is local and the glass bottle and metal twist top will be recycled. Tomorrow I will have eggs, tomatoes, and home made hash browns before I walk to work just 5 minutes down the road.Want to know a secret? Half of what is written above is true, I'm working on the other half.See More

"Why choose another country? Why not change the paradigm in your own! For many in the USA this would be an amazing and welcome opportunity. Try it in your own country and then take the lessons from that and move onto a different country. By starting…"

Joseph Nadler commented on NANGAR SOOMRO's blog post ACT 2 - SAVE FOOD AND SHARE FOOD
"I think the cost of transporting food is the major stumbling block. Grain transports well, everything else is a headache in terms of packaging/storage/distribution. Plus, transport and distribution costs money. How can we reduce this?"

Joseph Nadler replied to Brian Ballsun-Stanton's discussion Evoke RPG
"I like the idea, but you're going to have to rewrite the minimus guide to make it applicable. It was a bit too much for my little brain to translate a wizard and a theif into something Evoke-ish! In a sense, Evoke is an online RPG with blurred…"

The three ingredients for food security

Food security requires only 3 things

  1. Water management
  2. Soil management
  3. Seed management
Does that seem simplistic? Maybe; but intentionally so. Each one of these represents a significant challenge to food production and each one has a solution.



Water management - water has 2 problems

  1. Too much
  2. Not enough
If torrential rain is a problem, I would look towards Papua New Guinea,… Continue

I don't have heroes

I don't have heroes, I have fellow travellers.



I've been following Howard Rheingold on twitter for quite some time now. He's an educator with a web 2.0 twist. As an educator of Legal Studies I teach (and am deeply concerned by) democracy and human rights. When I witnessed what happened in Iran, I knew that social media was powerful and should be explicitly taught.



I'm not a techno-optimist. I… Continue

Innovation, collapse and constraint.

"Innovation (often) comes from constraint (If you’ve got very few resources, you’re forced to be very creative in using and reusing them.)" - Via DesignAfrica



I've been thinking a lot about social and economic collapse lately. It occured to me that one of those two situations will occur long before enviromental collapse.



That's a sad thought isn't… Continue

LEARN1- Social Innovator

My favorite, and perhaps most needed social innovation today, is "Don’t fight culture (If people cook by stirring their stews, they’re not going to use a solar oven, no matter what you do to market it. Make them a better stove instead.)"This simple idea has two meanings. First, it shows that the injustice of poverty and instability does not have a cookie cutter answer. Rather, it takes domestic and well educated responses that address the factors that drove a culture to suffer so, such as from…See More
