Coconut Garden

www.permacultureplanet.com A Coconut-inspired Permaculture food garden with over 90 edible and useful plant species. Using every part of the locally abundant Coconut tree, an area of hot white coral sand is transformed into a fertile and diverse haven for plants and wildlife. There may be no finer example than the Coconut to represent a truly multifunctional element in tropical Permaculture design. With a multitude of marvellous uses including food, construction, jewelry, bio-diesel and too many more to mention – no tropical home garden is complete without Cocos Nucifera! Filmed at the Lung Mee Permaculture Garden in the Surat Thani province in Southern Thailand.

Permaculture is . . . thinking in reverse

www.permacultureplanet.com Jonathan Reed won second place in AARP's U@50 video contest. Contestants were asked to create 2-minute video describing their vision of the future; what life would be like by the time they turned 50. Reed was inspired by the Argentinian political adverstisement "The Truth". Here is the text. Read it and then read it again in reverse. Lost Generation by Jonathan Reed I am part of a lost generation and I refuse to believe that I can change the world I realize this may be a shock but "Happiness comes from within." is a lie, and "Money will make me happy." So in 30 years I will tell my children they are not the most important thing in my life My employer will know that I have my priorities straight because work is more important than family I tell you this Once upon a time Families stayed together but this will not be true in my era This is a quick fix society Experts tell me 30 years from now, I will be celebrating the 10th anniversary of my divorce I do not concede that I will live in a country of my own making In the future Environmental destruction will be the norm No longer can it be said that My peers and I care about this earth It will be evident that My generation is apathetic and lethargic It is foolish to presume that There is hope. And all of this will come true unless we choose to reverse it .

Jean Pain – Compost Based Bio-Energy System – Pt. 2

www.permacultureplanet.com – Jean Pain (1930 – 1981) was a French innovator who developed a compost based bioenergy system that produced 100% of his energy needs. He heated water to 60 degrees celsius at a rate of 4 litres a minute which he used for washing and heating. He also distilled enough methane to run an electricity generator, cooking elements, and power his truck. This method of creating usable energy from composting materials has come to be known as Jean Pain Composting, or the Jean Pain Method.
