We have all hard about how bad this drought is becoming, but !!! this is eye-opening!
While the state’s drought-induced sinking is well known, new details highlight just how severe it has become and how little the government has done to monitor it.

Here's a fun look at some ways to creatively reuse household items to give them a second, beautiful life! Which transformation do you like best?

A surprising thing happened in California when people were told they could help themselves to free money...

An abandoned colony of bees found on a Pacific island are completely free of pests... does this spell hope for the global bee industry? What do you think?

Is California's drought problem due to lack of water, or lack of water that soaks into the ground? Another view of the situation...

never worry about going hungry in the wild again... have you eaten any of these plants harvested from the wild? Which ones?
In the last "wild edibles" post I did, I missed a lot of good wild food. Today, we cover 10 more wild plants you can eat.

a whole country goes 75 days on purely renewable energy. What do you think about the energy situation of the countries mentioned in this article and what it says about the future of renewable energy?

fostering a lasting culture of social sustainability through education, innovation, and conversation
Introduction
Permaculture as a practice has largely been relegated to the gardening section of the bookstore, but the truth is that the ideas contained within permaculture are a complete approach to problem-solving which can also be applied to social sustainability.

The permaCulture is a place for people to discuss ways in which to make our world a more harmonious and balanced place which nurtures and protects all its inhabitants.  
Circle this page if you're interested in:
  • alternative energy
  • sustainable business models
  • permaculture definitions and ideas

  • learning traditional crafts
  • book reviews on sustainability topics
  • homesteading
  • innovative technologies and ideas

The permaCulture is a community-driven resource started in the hope of both connecting people who are trying to live sustainable lives and promoting a social ethos which supports and cultivates those trying to live in harmony with our planet.
