I went to a lecture yesterday at Temple University in Philadelphia called Re-wilding the Earth from the Heart of the City. It mainly centered around permaculture and sustainability. Here are some things I learned:1.) Permaclture is defined as:

-An evolving system of perennial of self-perpetuating plant and animal species useful to humans

-Harmonious integration of landscape and people

-Human systems that function as natural systems

2.) Victory Gardens were created in WWI and WWII to reduce the pressure on public businesses to supply food. People planted and harvested a lot of their own food in their backyards or at community parks. This practice is infinitely more sustainable than the practices we use today!

3.) The permaculture Zone Map is made up of 5 zones. The fourth zone is the semi-wild zone and it’s extremely important because it’s the interface between the wild and civilization. It serves as a buffer, laboratory, garden, and refuge.

4.) Cuba is the world’s leader in sustainable agriculture, followed by Sweden.

Going to this lecture made me realize:

  • I need to go back to school
  • I actually want to learn more
  • I’m more confused than ever as far as the direction I want my life to go in.

That’s all. Until next time….
