My New Urban Permaculture Project

Hi everybody,

I recently moved to Kerepehi, have bought a property in the village, a house with an 800 square metre section, and am beginning a project to transform it into an urban permaculture property.

I have set up a Facebook Page, and will be posting details of the project as it proceeds, with photos and comments about the issues that come up and how I go about resolving them. I expect this Page to eventually become a resource for urban permaculture, and a place to discuss…

Can we make Thames a "Foodscape"?

I've got the posting below from Facebook but I have no qualms copying it into T3. The Fruity Trees Carbon Offset project is a step in the right direction. Now let's rip up all those unused lawns that just add to the carbon emissions with whining lawnmowers and get growing food instead.
The photo below has been taken in "Geneva,…

PETER JOSEPH on The Big Questions

 Take the time to watch this video, more than once! It succinctly lays out the opposing values between our profit driven economic system, and an, environmentally/socially sustainable system. Peter Joseph has his head and his heart in the right place to help lay out a ground-plan for survival amongst the crazy downhill pursuits of our current economic and social fabric resulting in the environmentally and socially destructive spiral we find ourselves…

THE NEWS COLUMN

Great News for Solar (1):

Siemens and Semprius double photovoltaic effiency.

Great news for Solar (2):

using salt to capture and store energy

Peak Oil again in news - Nature magazine article. follow link: Co-author David King is former science advisor to UK government. 

The idea of ‘peak oil’ — that global production will reach a peak and then decline — has been around for decades.  The true volume of proven global reserves is clouded by secrecy; forecasts by state oil companies are not audited and seem to be exaggerated. The notion that oil is produced by the earth - abiogenic oil - is largely discredited.

BEWARE THE TRANS-PACIFIC PARTNERSHIP AGREEMENT!

Should we be concerned about the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPPA)? Click link for news.

If these secret negotiations succeed [the only documents in the public domain have been leaked] they will create a mega-treaty across nine or more countries that puts a straightjacket on the policies and laws our government can adopt for the next century and give massive new powers to corporations.

Thames residents may be sitting on a gold mine

There is an application to prospect for gold underneath the town pending approval.

The application by Zedex Gold [application 53981 - purple on map] was lodged with the Ministry of Economic Development on October 4th 2011.
