    Hi mate, I trust you're swell on the waves of change up there. I'd pop over if it was just down the road. Tamborine Mountain is very moist at the moment and the Yacons etc are looking to bring a bumper yield soon. All the est. Cheers from the mists

    If you're still looking for info here's a link to the Yowie hunters up here in Sth East QLD. Dean has quite a lot of reports from many states, https://www.yowiehunters.com.au/ In north America they are called Sabe and there's lots of reports of them as well.

    Meet Up: Gold Coast

    It was great. My 1st time going to one. A good turn out with lots of plant and idea swaps and excellent conversations. It was a pleasure to be amongst a fine group of human animals

    Meet Up: Gold Coast

    Hi all, where abouts is the meet up and what time? I'm on Tamborine Mountiain and maybe able to come down and bring a few plants and seeds to swap. Would love to catch up with a great group like this. Cheers, John

    Australia is headed down a dark path

    This is an excellent post and the comments and conversation are a breath of fresh air. For me personally it is vital to bear in mind that the so called 'system' is not broken, its designed this way for a very specific reason which brings to mind a great quote from Jiddu Krishnamurti, " It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society." Permaculture ethics are vital: 1. Care of the Earth 2. Care of the People 3. All surplus to go to ethics 1 and 2 Be the change you wish to see, every thought, word and action becomes a living example of this .................... not perfection, that's impossible. Enjoy the experience of adjusting through your personal life and day to day experiences. For example if you cut a piece of timber to short, next time measure twice and cut once so to speak. Life is very very simple. Bill Mollison once said ," Though the problems of the world are increasingly complex, the solutions remain embarrassingly simple.” To me the natural world shows truth and this so called society is a blatant and obvious lie because it divides and it is well known that one of the key points in the Art of War is to divide the people then they are easy to conquer. One could go deeper into for instance the central American culture that spoke of a parasite that has infected humanity. This parasite makes one BE LIEve that they are thinking their own thoughts when they in fact are not. The North American tribes called it the wetiko virus. Humanity is at an undeniably important point and each one of us is totally free to choose our path ...................... intent is where our power lies and if our base desire is as a child's in the wonder of those glorious moments when excitement to explore reigns supreme we are unstoppable and fucking brilliant.

    In light of poetry

    At a Glance Impulses left freely to ignite the quiet Gently bringing the warm awareness Expressing joyously the freedom of the moment Spontaneous bursts of brilliance, one offs Joining endlessly to create one glorious now Ever expanding Always exceeding never better never worse Only Diverse Verses interwoven to bring The conscious song into being At a Glance from a Distance An Infinite Moment in Glory

    Post your native plant pics

    Hi Bardo, are you still looking for Native edible books?, yeah I have a few Tim Low ones as well plus a few others. I also have a copied to PDF version of Tim Low's out of print Wild Herbs of Australia and New Zealand and can send you that if you're interested. I copied it from a library years agoand then copied it to my computer to PDF. I had to make it in 2 sections because it was 2 big to email as one. Another one by AB & JW Cribb called WIld Food in Australia os ok as well but dosent have much in the way of ikkustrations though. It is still good for general info, here's a link to one for sale: https://gbeonline.com.au/product/useful-wild-plants-in-australia-by-a-b-j-w-cribb/
