SIMPLY LIVING COMMUNITY MEETUP: OCTOBER TOPIC:
HOW TO TRANSFORM SUBURBIA WITH PERMACULTURE

Register on Eventbrite 

UPDATE! A panel of local permaculture experts will lead a discussion and Q&A following Jann Spencer's slide show presentation. Join us for an inspiring evening learning and imagining how our communities can be transformed with permaculture design! 

About this Event

The presentation will be a slide show and tell describing twenty years of transforming a quarter acre suburban property in Eugene, Oregon. The grass is gone front and back. There is edible landscaping all over, much of it trellised and espalier and even structures over rooftops to support grape vines. The south facing patio is now 350 sf enclosed passive solar that helps heat the house in the winter time. A rain water catchment system can store and distribute 5600 gallons, primarily for irrigation.

The 5 car driveway was depaved and the one car garage turned into living space. Well over 2000 people have visited over the years, the place is a permaculture land mark in the Pacific Northwest. Jan rarely buys fruit or veggies. With four residents and downsized lifestyles, the eco footprint of the property is comparatively small.

The presentation will also touch on the history of suburbia plus a short look at several other permaculture sites in Eugene. Jan's neighborhood hosted the 2015 Northwest Permaculture Convergence. Perhaps the only permaculture convergence to take place in a suburban neighborhood.

Jan is also making a series of zoom presentations that describe various aspects of System Change scheduled for October and November. You can find out more about the presentations at suburbanpermaculture.org

#GrassRoot_Ohio with #AtticusGarden and #DuckBardus - Street Medics, the first responders that are there for You and Me, for anyone who may get hurt during a Street Protest. - GrassRoot Ohio w/ Carolyn Harding - Conversations with every-day people, working on important issues here in Columbus and all around Ohio!
     Atticus Garden resides in Columbus, on the South side where he is serving his 2nd term as Area Commissioner, representing the wonderful, beautiful, and diverse neighborhood of Southern Orchards (District 2). Atticus was first introduced to Street Medics during his time at Standing Rock reservation in 2016, where he spent 2 months at the Oceti Sakowin Camp providing medical aid during the historic gathering of tribes, allies and people from all walks of life standing in solidarity to halt the Dakota Access Pipeline. Inspired by these events and people, Atticus has spent the past 4 years providing medical aid at protests, demonstrations, and community events all over the US- North Dakota, Los Angeles, D.C., New York City, and predominantly Columbus where he has supported over several hundred events.
     Duck Bardus has spent many years in grassroots politics in Ohio. They received training in the winter of 2016 at Standing Rock and have volunteered to provide first aid at countless protests since, notably during the George Floyd protests in Columbus and in the Autonomous Zone at the George Floyd Memorial in Minneapolis. Duck also volunteers on the board of Frontline Wellness, an NGO that coordinates medical care for high-risk activists.  duckbardus@gmail.com

Reducing our levels of consumption will not be a sacrifice but a bonus if we simply redefine the meaning of the word ‘success.’ ~ David Wann
The Public Banking Institute is leading a national movement to establish public banks, including postal banking, that serve the public interest at the state, county, and municipal government levels. Public banks can address challenging issues like affordable housing, infrastructure projects, providing credit to small business owners and entrepreneurs, and more. Interest rates are typically lower and the interest is returned to the city or state treasury. The PBI Live program below is a new offering to address issues - in this case, experts explore how the Federal Reserve could - should? - fund hard hit communities during the pandemic. Details below. 


 

Catch the next PBI LIVE Ep 3: The Fed vs. the states on Friday, September 18 at 3pm ET 

In the wake of COVID-19, only a mere 5% of the nearly $3 trillion relief package had been allocated to the 50 states by early May. States remain desperately short of funds. The Federal Reserve money helicopter, however, flew directly to Wall Street and hovered. Banks can now borrow money virtually interest-free with no strings attached. States, on the other hand, can only sell bonds to the Fed at much more expensive market rates of 3% - 4% or more, plus penalty fees. What is behind this discrimination? What does it mean for the people? PBI Chair Ellen Brown talks with Cornell Prof. Robert Hockett and Michael Brennan, Democratizing Capital Policy Organizer for the Democracy Policy Network.

Dr. Gulcin Ozer is a research assistant professor in the Department of Biomedical Informatics at the OSU Wexner Medical Center. She completed her PhD and postdoctoral training at OSU.

Yes, it will have been 15 years since Hurricane Katrina ravaged New Orleans and prompted then-Cuban president Fidel Castro to offer to send doctors to help treat patients in the storm’s aftermath. The US government refused this offer, but Cuba was not deterred from wanting to show the world some much needed solidarity.  Since its founding, the brave women and men of the Henry Reeve International Medical Brigade have given emergency medical assistance to more than 3.5 million people in over 50 countries. To honor their compassion and commitment, we will hear directly from Cuban doctors working on the frontlines of the pandemic.  More information and registration here.

Preserving Lessons from Our Semi-Wild Season
Fall on the farm is the time for preservation: collecting and saving seeds in the field, canning produce in the kitchen. This growing season has been like no other in our farm’s short history. We went from planning a sabbatical to planting a victory garden. We limited visitors on site while attempting to stay connected and relevant. We weathered another hot and dry summer as we tried a few new strategies for planting, tending, and letting things grow wild. Read the blog HERE.
