This sounds great, keep in mind the NW Permaculture Convergence is the third weekend in Sept and many will be there, me included.....Happy to help out with this too! I like Cornwall Park as an idea.

Hi there,
Kate, let's do this TW Harvest Potluck. The TWOGs were talking about it at our first meeting. The idea was to meet at Cornwall Park. I suggest we move this to a discussion and see what we can start to organize?

Seems it would be a great idea to start planning an all TW Harvest Potluck, for September. Anyone interested? I would be glad to help. We could keep it a park, bring your own utensils. Have some homegrown music?

No speakers, but the workgroups (and Leadership core) could each have a table or area so we can come hear about what they are doing.

For those who fine Dr. Rifkin's views of interest, he made an hour long presentation about his book on TVW a while back. The link is

Thanks for this Meredith! So few viewers - it must have just been created. I appreciate this echoing of what Frances Moore Lappe talked about at the TGU, and hope that our communication can lead to safety for expression of our empathy towards each other, instead of our drive to defend ourselves.

Here is a new study out today on global warming.
NYTs said the US Gov should wake up and listen. Think they will?

Here is a wonderful example of building new that is reasonable impact. Chris Webb was involved in designing these homes on Lopez. By clicking on it you can also vote for it being a great design. Have a look:

below the photo is the text if you click on it you will see the description of the project. Small, inexpensive, strong passive solar and on Lopez Island.

Dear Frank, I appreciate your words and my heart deeply resonates with everything you said in your post. Thank you for writing and reminding me of my grandmothers philosophy. She embodied 'voluntary simplicity' and enjoyed a quality of life that other people around her, who were far more materially rich, envied. I have followed in her footsteps my whole life. I deeply appreciate your comments here. Thank you.

i see you struggled with that, Lia. and i struggle with a response.

thank you for asking.

i think we may make ourselves feel good by action to mitigate human suffering, the inevitable coming tsunami of suffering. and perhaps that is reason enough.

but i am a taoist and gaian, not a buddhist, not a christian and not a humanist; so i act now in the service of the web of life. part of my motivation is apology. another part is sorrow. and over all is duty.
