In our latest video, Patrick takes us through the management of gorse by goats and the ecological significance of slow and small solutions for post-industrial, subsistence and land-less farming.
In this unscripted, barefoot generation of thought through Mother Country, Patrick returns to the Pandora myth, which is necessarily entangled with the twinning myth of Prometheus and Epimetheus, and he connects these major western origin stories to the present culturing, making and remaking possibilities of Mother Country.
In our latest video we give an insight into the philosophy and structure of our bush school, Forest & Free, which we established several years ago. This is a 'school' built upon gifts, with few organisational costs, little administration, and a whole bunch of community trust where the principal teacher is Mother Country.
This week Patrick is guest on Tyson Yunkaporta's podcast 'The Other Others', which went live yesterday. In Tyson's words this is an "[i]ntimate yarn between two friends from two different families, cultures and online communities who ended up in... let's say incompatible algorithms, during Covid lockdowns, resulting in horrendously oppositional worldviews. Nothing we can't sort out with a good yarn. Because a yarn is almost like a 'conversation' but without the bullshit. Nobody is 'just asking questions' in a yarn, because you talk from your relation, not your position. The end result is not a resolution, compromise or any of that crap. It's... nah I'll let you listen through and find out for yourself."
In this video we take you on a tour of the top 10 medicines that keep us outside the industrial medical complex. If you've never considered the following as medicines, we invite you open to this next half hour as we reveal our story of health and well-being, and why our family hasn't required a medical centre for many years.
In this latest video, Patrick examines the role of heterodox thinking both broadly and within more marginal cultural milieus. He is curious whether the potent religious myth of the turned over money tables has currency in this moment and whether permaculture in Australia is falling into wrong story by adopting neoliberal guerrilla tactics of censorship and divisive behavioural strategies that include the creation of contagion/scapegoat classes in order to stifle dissent or debate. What society only recently called a difference of opinion is now being labelled as misinformation. Does this matter? Who is watching? Does anyone care if the heterodoxy is erased?
Patrick headed into the forest this week to record some thoughts about what is happening to the intentions of diversity and inclusivity.
