It’s been three days since the festival ended, and it is still resonating in me. I have brought home a space of new inspiration and deep meaningfulness that’s very insistent on being put to practice. It wants to cultivate plants and mushrooms and microorganisms and the neighbourhood, it wants to pickle and can and ferment, it wants to provide a stay for birds and bees and WOOFers, and it wants to rejoice over it all. At this point you may be asking yourself: “What is she on???” Well, it’s a permaculture high. It comes from sharing knowledge and seeds and songs and food and decisive moments with people and getting rich soil on your hands and keeping it simple. It can’t really be fully described, so go ahead and try this at home. 🙂 And come to Norway next year for the Nordic Permaculture Festival!
