RE: web limits and world poverty
Hi ya steve, long time no talk, I have come to realise that
I can't deal with the amount of the market that we have already!!
and I realise those that really need help don't have the net - however,
Those people in need are a hell of a lot more willing and are easier to teach!!!
I still get visits from people with the perfect look (acoubra, flannel shirt, blundies)
and have a mobile phone hidden in the pocket!!
I get grilled and treated like I'm trying to sell them something!! E.g. they
say "but doesn't that" "but don't you have to" ..
."the last visitor simply didn't belive that the vegies and shrubs were in mulch
and started to poke holes in it looking for soil"!!
I know it would be easier to run oversease to our Indian project
(though my belly doesn't agree)
But here we are, on the frontier Steve, where the face of Permaculture has to
bare the storms of commercialism.
