There is one festival that I haven’t made it to yet, but that touches me still…because so many of our great producers and production teams are there playing together, crafting its magic…and because its in Costa Rica, a land I love…a land rich and beautiful and full of a spirit so deep that the government has no army and the people are connected to the Earth, living peacefully together. All of this, with the colorful, exotic flora and fauna of Central America, as well as the Sea, are reflected in this incredible festival…Captured for us all in this inspiring new video >> just released: Can you guess what fest it is?? <3 Saphir
The #PermacultureActionDay at the Gill Tract Farm this past Saturday and Sunday brought 500 people from the Fox Theatre The Polish Ambassador show in Oakland out to plant a children’s garden, seed farm rows, sheet mulch a new area, build a meditation/yoga space, work the biodynamic beds….AND take back the piece of the land with a planned development to turn it into a big box corporate grocery store and parking lot, and instead turned it into a #RealFarmersMarket and Community Farm.
“Here’s a recording of the online panel I was on last night about how Transformational Festivals can contribute to social change… if you don’t have time for the whole hour, my better rant goes from around 37:20 to 45:40.”
