There’s just over a day remaining for the Open Source Permaculture project, at time of writing, and around $3000 more needed to reach the target. Please consider donating if you haven’t already – this will be a real boost for permaculture. See the fundraising status box to the right.
And if you’re reading this after the deadline, there are plenty of ways you can get involved – just leave a comment here and we’ll direct you.
Now for a brief “roundup” – as in the latest news and blogs, not Roundup the chemical herbicide. We use mulch to keep weeds down ;-). Open Source Permaculture has been getting attention, appearing on Treehugger, Ecopreneurist, Inhabitat and many other sites. I want to highlight three particularly interesting links.
- Open Source Permaculture: Interview with Sophia Novak, Upcycled Love.
- Crowdfunding Open Source Permaculture, Shareable.
- Open Source Permaculture – a robust discussion on Permies.com. There was some confusion about the fact that “Open Source” is a computing term – I don’t consider it incorrect to use for an open knowledge project, but “Open Content” is more precise. Both open source software and open content involve collaboration and open licenses, giving freedom to adapt and reuse.
