The greatest change we need to make is from consumption to production, even if on a small scale, in our own gardens.If only 10% of us do this, there is enough for everyone. Hence the futility of revolutionaries who have no gardens, who depend on the very system they attack, and who produce words and bullets, not food and shelter.” – – Bill Mollison
Hi ,all you awesome permies in the blogosphere my name is Evan Schoepke (@gaiapunk) I’m the lead editor of punk rock permaculture e-zine and I live in lovely Olympia, WA USA.
My Background in Permaculture:
In the Spring of 09′ before I graduated from Evergreen State College with a focuses in ecocity development, web communications, and studio arts I received my Permaculture Design Certification after a two week intensive in Costa Rica under the instruction of the lovable Scott Pittman of the U.S. Permaculture Institute. After my graduation during the spring and summer of 2010 I was very fortunate to do a 3 month Advanced Permaculture Design Internship with Ethan Roland of Appleseed Permaculture.
My Day Job and my Side Jobs
I’m currently working remotely as the Head of Growth for Bonsai, which is an awesome freelancer and creative studio business management platform. Formerly, I worked remotely as a Business Development Manager for the awesome Barcelona based startup Typeform and as the remote BD for the Malmö based social micro-donation service Flattr. I have a personal dream someday to help develop software tools for permaculture designers, a monumental project but one that needs to happen. In Olympia, I work locally with the Cascadia Guerrilla Gardening Brigade, Raccoon Arts Collective, and other community projects whenever I can. I have a passionate love for street art, guerrilla gardening, cooking food, DIY punk ethics, harmonica wailin’, and riding bikes with friends.
My intention for this e-zine is that it will act as a link between the personal and communal showcasing examples of all the beneficial work being done for the earth around the world. This is an e-zine about a regenerative culture full of resistance and inspiring creativity. Anyone is welcome to become a syndicated submitter and add relevant posts, articles, art, stories, and multimedia to this blog just email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject:
