Why "Growing Edge?"

Hey! Life is amazing and if you aren't paying attention, it just may be passing you by. Slow down! Observe what is around you. Plant a garden. Make your own food. Create Beauty.

Welcome to our blog. We love discovering what Earth has to teach anyone willing to be on the Growing Edge of life.

The Audacious PLan

Why is it that we need to "let go" before the seeds we plant will grow? Dancing TreePeople Farm (dancingtreepeople.com) is no longer for sale. The Universe presented us with a solution that brought tears to my eyes because it perfectly matched my decade-old dream of a transformational intentional community. Two deaths in the family, and other misadventures led me to believe the dream would never happen, so after a decade of trying too hard... I let it go and decided to move on.   No sooner did the for sale sign go up than the possibility emerged. Now the sign has come down and community is forming with friends/brilliant changemakers. No doubt this little corner of the world will change the world. It is inevitable now. I am pinching myself.

It is time for the next phase of the Audacious Plan

Yay... I created my first cartoon.  I'm offering a web class this Friday November 8, 2013.  Permaculture applied to business (overwhelm!)  and this is my first try at a cartoon video:

What is Permaculture?

Permaculture (permanent agriculture) is an ecological design framework inspired by living systems. The ethics, root practices and principles in permaculture can be applied to the garden, the farm, and indeed any living system including human structures.
