I ran away from teaching to the country to grow veggies. There are also some chooks and a pair of troublesome goats who were so much trouble they had to go! My simple green life isn't always as simple or as green as I'd like...but I keep trying!

If you read Gavin's Blog (The Greening of Gavin), 
you will have seen this.  But it is so good, 
I have decided to post it here too, 
in the hope that it will reach more people. 

I like it because it is an easy-to-understand overview 
of what is happening in our world.  
It covers all the bases -  
capitalism's need for continuous economic growth, 
peak-oil, our over-reliance on
cheap money and energy,
the disintegration of the environment,
climate change...... 

I really like the fact that the author seems almost excited 
by the promise the crumbling of the world-as-we-know-it offers us - 
an opportunity to do it better.  

Have a look and see what you think.

Here is a link to the authors of the animation: Doing it Ourselves.

I am off outside to plant some more veggies!
