The Plastique Sea Barge Tribe. New Myth 26 by Willi Paul, openmythsource.com

The Plastique Sea Barge Tribe. New Myth 26 by Willi Paul, openmythsource.com http://wp.me/p14SHM-GC An ironic twist to the localization movement throughout Cascadia, the Plastique Sea is a moving permaculture experiment, a bobbing and rolling decentralized government with a flag and a rowdy group chant. SeaOccupy? The Plastique Sea Barge Tribe is another example of community initiation in the post-Transition era. “How do we make our share of Cascadian Barterbucks?” 38225

By Willi Paul, Planetshifter.com Magazine http://planetshifter.com/node/2037 – excerpt – “I think a lot (of the global warming debate) boils down to leadership and vision. I also find that real understanding of leadership is badly lacking in the permaculture community.

Noah’s honey rust fortress (“junk yard permaculture”). New Myth #21 by Willi Paul, openmythsource.com http://wp.me/p14SHM-Ez “Have you ever sat near a roaring brook and felt refreshed, been cheered by the vibrant song of a thrush or renewed by a sea breeze? Does a wildflower’s fragrance bring you joy, a whale or snow-capped peak charge your senses? You did not take a class to learn to feel these innate joys. We are born with them.
