Found a couple of interesting scans from here http://www.permacultu...­

One is Mollison's permie bible, A Designer's Manual compressed as a .rar in pdf format here http://depositfiles.c...­ its one of those sites like megaupload where you have to wait a minute before it'll let you dl.

Another is Gaia's Garden. Same thing. The book scanned into pdf format. Compressed as a .rar here http://depositfiles.c...­

You'll need a program to uncompress the .rar. Like WinRar or something.

There are other interesting links to ebooks at permaculture planet, like Holmgren's ebooks.

I didn't find this link in the discussion and I think it's very cool:

http://www.alcoholcan...­
"With alcohol fuel, you can become energy independent, reverse global warming, and survive Peak Oil in style. Alcohol fuel is "liquid sunshine" and can't be controlled by transnational corporations. You can produce alcohol for less than $1 a gallon, using a wide variety of plants and waste products, from algae to stale donuts. It's a much better fuel than gasoline, and you can use it in your car, right now. You can even use alcohol to generate electricity. Alcohol fuel production is ecologically sustainable, revitalizes farms and communities, and creates huge new opportunities for small-scale businesses. Its byproducts are clean and valuable. Alcohol has a proud history and a vital future."

I don't think I had ever heard of this before -- Wanted to put it out there.

http://www.slowmoney....­
Slow Money's mission is to build local and national networks, and develop new financial products and services, dedicated to:
* investing in small food enterprises and local food systems;
* connecting investors to their local economies; and,
* building the nurture capital industry.
Soil fertility, carrying capacity, sense of place, care of the commons, cultural, ecological and economic health and diversity, nonviolence -- these are the fundamentals of nurture capital, a new financial sector supporting the emergence of a restorative economy. And these are the fundamentals of the Slow Money Principles.

If nothing else, it's a way to introduce general supporting concepts to others...

Yes, Jackson, Slow Money is worth looking into. At the macro level it sounds complicated, but a step in the right direction that any of us can take is to move our checking and savings (if we have any) and any business accounts to small local banks or credit unions. These entities invest in the community, and at the same time we withdraw our support from the large national and international banks that are basically at war with us.
