[permaculture-61] I went to Occupy wall st OWS and permaculture has a place there
I went there to bring them info on Transition and other expansive ideas for change.I WAs going to go to the Permie meetup but was asked to stay and share ideas at the GA.
I walked around, saw how it was going, talked w folks, stayed for their general assembly nightly meeting.
Everyone was kind, helpful, open , receptive,
energetic...but also it was chaoitc and crowded and a need for reorganizing their space was mentioned. I said and thought... hmmm, we could use permaculture design ideas to make the site work better.
They also are wanting to learn. They say they need to educate themselves about many things, have teach-ins etc.
So if any one want to go down, go. A good way to bring new ideas to the movement while it's in it's formative stage.
