Founders of firm making alcoholic sweets left puzzled by trademark infringement claim

Small, sweet bears with the capacity to inflict a very sore head have triggered an intellectual property dispute involving a multinational confectioner, a trio of enterprising Spanish students and a shot or two of alcohol.

A couple of years ago, three friends studying in the Basque country experienced an epiphany: what if they combined their childhood love of sweets with their adult taste for alcohol? And what if the delivery system were a small, chewy bear?

Inhabitants: An Indigenous Perspective


A collaborative documentary about tribal land management practices and their resilience in a changing climate.

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/inhabitfilms/inhabitants-an-indigenous-perspective

Inhabitants: An Indigenous Perspective is a feature-length documentary that follows five North American tribes restoring their ancient relationships with the land while adapting to today’s climate crisis.

The film travels across diverse bioregions of North America, from deserts and coastlines, to forests, mountains, and prairies, highlighting the dramatic effects of climate change and stories of indigenous land stewardship practices, which continue to be resilient in the face of a changing climate. The film focuses on five stories: the return of prescribed fire practices by the Karuk Tribe in California; the restoration of buffalo on the Blackfeet reservation in Montana; sustained traditions of H...

Melliodora Tour with David Holmgren & Su Dennett




In Episode 2 of Permaculture Tours, we visit Melliodora, the home of David Holmgren and Su Dennett in Victoria, Australia.

David is the co-originator of the permaculture concept and this tour offers an insight into how he and Su have designed their home and gardens according to permaculture principles.

Come and take a tour through the four zones that make up their 1-hectare property – vegetable gardens, fruit trees, geese, goats and chickens, a tiny house, and a very cool “cool cupboard” in the kitchen!

Small Backyard Transformed Using Permaculture Design!

How Do We Preserve the Vanishing Foods of the Earth?


https://lithub.com/how-do-we-preserve-the-vanishing-foods-of-the-earth/
As the world’s biodiversity declines, we lose the ability to both repair existing crops and create new ones. It is difficult to pinpoint exactly how bad a problem this is, as biodiversity is spread unevenly across the globe. For example, alpine zones (these zones are found above the tree line and below the snow line) cover about three percent of the earth’s land surface but are home to an unusual number of species. Half of the world’s biodiversity hotspots are on mountains. Of the twenty plant species that supply eighty percent of the world’s food, seven originate from the mountain regions.

Masanobu Fukuoka (Natural Farm) - Larry Korn Interview


Part 1 -

Part 2 -

Part 3 -

Seen as the father of modern day natural farming, Masanobu Fukuoka is author of “The One Straw Revolution,” a fundamental volume for understanding how human beings can live together with this earth. This three part film series features previously unreleased interviews with Larry Korn, who in 1974 (after a decade of studying soil, plants, and Eastern culture) spent two years of living and studying with Fukuoka.

When Larry left Japan, he carried the Japanese manuscript of Fukuoka’s book with him to California, with the determination to get the book published in English. Hi... Show more...
 




Ciclovida Lifecycle


This feature-length documentary pedals alongside a group of small farmers from Brazil who bicycle over 6,000 miles across the South American continent. They use the year of travel to exchange natural seeds, songs, and ideas about new ways of relating to the land. Moving stories from landless peasants, indigenous communities, and small farmers inform the travelers and viewers, expanding their understanding of the struggle to survive in the face of global agribusiness incursion and the takeover of monocrops for making biofuel.

How We Grow


How We Grow seeks to tell the story that digs deeper- beyond the farmers’ markets and local food access- into the ways in which communities rebuild themselves around agriculture. The film is a coming of age story of a community re-learning how to work together and growing stronger in the process. Inspired by the drive and dedication of the next generation of agricultural leaders in the Roaring Fork Valley, the community explores how to overcome pressing issues.

Land access, income inequality, and a short growing season turn from barriers into levers as these ambitious young farmers discover ways to get healthy, sustain... Show more...
 
How gardeners are working together to protect the world’s plants, one seed at a time
https://www.independent.co.uk/environment/gardening-farming-conservation-seed-saving-gene-bank-a9257776.html
For some, seed saving is a way of keeping history alive, for example by growing the vegetable varieties their grandparents enjoyed. For others, it’s a way to save money, or to connect with their community. And today, it is increasingly a political statement – a choice that allows consumers to avoid fruits, vegetables and other foods produced at an industrial scale.

A Lot To Learn


https://www.resurgence.org/magazine/article5461-a-lot-to-learn.html

Dave Goulson wonders whether allotments can save the Earth.
Farming systems already exist that use these principles. Permaculture, agroforestry and biodynamic farming are all variants on this theme. The only real downside to this type of food production is that it is much more labour-intensive. Industrial farming is heavily mechanised and requires very few people – a major driver of the demise of rural communities. To scale up allotmenting or permaculture would require getting many more people back onto the land, but would that be such a bad thing? It is predicted that many traditional occupations will disappear in the next few years as AI makes humans redundant. One of the ways we could find gainful employment for many of these people would be by expanding small-scale agriculture.

This is just pathetic!

Anything that does not portray Iran and Iranians as evil terrorists must be blocked to maximize the brainwashing effect of the government, Hollywood, AIPAC, and the war mongers.

#ClimateCrisis ‘affecting quality of life and fuelling discontent’


The #climate #crisis, as well as persistently high inequalities, and rising levels of #food #insecurity and #undernourishment, is affecting the quality of life in many societies and fuelling discontent, the #UN warned on Thursday, on the publication of the 2020 World Economic Situation Report (#WESP).

Food from Scraps

Last Fall and Winter we did an experiment for fun to re-grow different food plants from the cut off pieces that we would normally just compost. Here are some of the results.

I put tissue samples of the three "forest medley" mushrooms on agar plates, but just in case those don't work for whatever reason I also chopped up the butts and rolled them up in wet cardboard "burritos" as a backup.

I was at the supermarket and I peeked at what they had for mushrooms out of curiosity. I found a small packaged "forest medley" that contained P. adiposa, lion's mane, and (what I think is) king oyster. I only have one of those in my culture library so I bought them to clone. I've been wanting to get my hands on some P. adiposa for a while now, so this is perfect.
