Re: FW: my view of the conference


Thank you for your long post.  I rarely take time to read the long ones and
yours was an exception.  It was the first time I had a sense of the
conference from anything I have read.  I don't attend these international
parties because if I had the money to jet set around I would use it to go to
one of the countries where people have asked me for a course but haven't the
exchange to pay transport.  I think that if permaculture as a movement were
able to take all the money  that could be spent in this way and give it out
for courses where exchange is unavailable, we would do much more for
permaculture than polluting the skies to put the best teachers all in one
spot so that they can talk to one another.
