That’s how you split your firewood!

by kaiconfusion

 

 

A genius invention I discovered at Permaculture demonstration site Melliodora in Victoria Australia – home
of Permaculture co – originator David Holmgren.

An old car tyre makes for the perfect tool to split wood. Everybody that splits firewood by hand knows how annoying
it is when the wood falls to the ground. The tyre stops the wood from falling and when the axe hits the rubber it bounces back and saves you energy!
The tyre can be stacked full with wood and all split at once. So much faster!!! Awesome!

A Simpler Way: Crisis as Opportunity (2016)

It isn’t the question anymore of how are we going to change the world but instead: When are YOU going to join the one’s already changing it?

It is easy to forget the concerns of the world in our daily lives and hard to grasp the big picture in these hyper complex times. Too easily it can be overseen how our day to day actions and inactions repeated by many have profound impacts on the globe and all its inhabitants at large.

“Think global – act local” – “Be part of the solution rather than part of the problem!”

Enjoy watching!

Permaculture: A Quiet Revolution

27 min | Permaculture | 2008 (BR) | English & Portuguese

As corporate media fails to provide accurate news of the world’s dire environmental predicament, the Earth sends a clear message in the form of record-breaking natural disasters, famine and epidemics. People are mobilizing for what lies ahead.

In May 2007, the 8th International Permaculture Convergence (IPC8) was held in Brazil, bringing together visionary activists from 43 countries in the common goal of preparing for, and mitigating, our looming global crisis. Their strategy: Self-reliance and sustainability through permaculture.

This timely documentary offers practical steps on how to ‘permaculturize’ our lives. It invites viewers into a permaculture community that spans the globe. Most importantly, it gives the critical inspiration needed to turn our backs on that which is failing us, and to create a sustainable future of our own making.
