Get Inspired to Create a New WorldBy Scott BadenochIf you want to see the world we wish to create, here it is, page after page, a true tour de force of positive (r)evolution. You will be inspired and amazed at what people are doing all over the world. Whether you want to visit these incredible and unique communities on your travels (or even become a part of them!) or bring their techniques into your own life, buythis book. The photos are excellent, the layout intuitive and the read enjoyable. This book is a great addition to any permaculture fan, student or practitioner's collection and is a profound gift for anyone interested in the subject and ready to get thinking and moving in the direction of building a new world. While this is not a step-by-step how-to manual, it is an in depth look at the array of models/options out there, depending on the climate zone you are in (and if you get inspired by one, go to that thing called the interwebs to research more specifically the how-tos). Everyone knows that it's no easy thing to create a permaculture community or grow all the food you need to live on and this book doesn't say otherwise, but it does give you a roadmap for action like none I've seen before.4 of 4 people found the following review helpful. The (R)evolution is here.By JustinSustainable (R)evolution is a well-organized book filled with information that offers wisdom and examples of sustainable living from all over the world. The authors insight is deepened by their experiences in living a sustainable life and putting the things they have learned and teach into real world experiences.I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I read it while building my own sustainable community, Saint Michaels in Costa Rica. It was an inspiration to say the least. I hope this book continues to forge a path for better communities, in a better world, with a better life for all of us.1 of 1 people found the following review helpful. sustainable farming and the future of Mankind.By Juan IbarraVery easy to read book very in depth in all the major concerns that the old practices of agriculture system possed to nowadays; understandable and well thought like having a conversation with an expert/passionate researcher who's goal is to spread his knowledge more than impress and make himself/herself be seeing as the "expert" truly humane in the scenarios that proposes as solution for our overcrowded cities. A must read and include in your family's library so our next geration can have access to this jewel!!! Urban gardeners. Native seed-saving collectives. Ecovillage developments. What is the connection between these seemingly disparate groups? The ecological design system of permaculture is the common thread that weaves them into a powerful, potentially revolutionaryor reevolutionarymovement. Permaculture is a philosophy based on common ethics of sustainable cultures throughout history that have designed settlements according to nature's patterns and lived within its bounds. As a movement that has been building momentum for the past 40 years, it now is taking form as a growing network of sites developed with the intention of regenerating local ecologies and economies. Permaculture strategies can be used by individuals, groups, or nations to address basic human needs such as food, water, energy, and housing. As a species, humans are being called forth to evolve, using our collective intelligence to meet the challenges of the future. Yet if we are to survive our collective planetary crisis, we need to revisit history, integrating successful systems from sustainable cultures. To boldly confront our position on the brink of the earth's carrying capacity and make changes that incorporate the wisdom of the past is truly revolutionary. Sustainable Revolution features the work of a worldwide network of visionaries, including journalists, activists, indigenous leaders and permaculturists such as David Holmgren, Vandana Shiva, Charles Eisenstein, Starhawk, Erik Assadourian, Victoria Tauli-Corpuz, Albert Bates, and Geoff Lawton. This beautifully photographed collection of profiles, interviews, and essays features 60 innovative community-based projects in diverse climates across the planet. Edited by anthropologist Juliana Birnbaum Fox and award-winning activist filmmaker Louis Fox, it can be read as an informal ethnography of an international culture that is modeling solutions on the cutting edge of social and environmental change. The research presented in the book frames the permaculture movement as a significant ally to marginalized groups, such as the urban poor and native communities resisting the pressures of globalization. Sustainable Revolution uplifts and inspires with its amazing array of dynamic activists and thriving, vibrant communities. The most significant discovery of the space age is that we humans are, first and foremost, indigenous Earthlings. Sustainable Revolutionis a profound reminder of what this means. By detailing local applications of eternally regenerative design principles, it eloquently demonstrates the inspiring possibilitiesand critical importanceof synchronizing with the highly evolved patterns emerging from our home planets cycles of life.David McConville, chairman of the Buckminster Fuller Institute In today's sped-up, hyper-individualized, consumer-frenzied society, it's hard not to feel off-kilter. Birnbaum and Fox's book is the perfect medicine for the moment, offering guidance and inspiration to reclaim and repair our relationship with ourselves, our community and the planet.AnnieLeonard, founder of the Story of Stuff Project Our culture has been at war with the world for millennia, wresting our food from it as if it were an enemy to be conquered. Permaculture isn't just another way of growing food, it's a culture different from ours, a culture making peace with the world in every way. See it at work in this book. Youll be astonished.
