Five soil conditions worth noting as discovered at a local community garden.
#1) Prevailing clay-rich garden plots, (compacts to hard impervious state.)
#2) Ditch soil found in easement under city mowing
#3) Soil near creek edge / #4) Soil under messy tree a little further from creek
#5) Compost turning into fungal state as found in my actual 2 year old permaculture bed.
At the first glance we hear about well known elements, but the way they are strategically positioned in this talk creates abundance of knowledge that is truly enlightening. Many people who use elements out of context should hear this. Truly exciting stuff.
Yes it all comes down to semantics, how we DEFINE sustainability. Sustaining LIFE, diverse, rich, abundant, inclusive is what sustainability should be. As opposed to the current global sustainability practices – linear, exclusive, high tech, life negating, depleting, short term, focused on creation of monocultures of life and consumption patterns. Mainstream global sustainability sectors “high-jack” concepts that sound radical and progressive, gets implemented through state and private machineries and their technical experts equally trained in monoculture thinking. Slow death of sustainability. Hopefully the rise of real local sustainability will take over as the global unravelling continues.
