You know how there are some photos coupled with a story that cause you to stop in your tracks and pay extra close note? This is one that had me speechless for a time, then muttering to myself “this is it” over and over for days. Permaculture with purpose to care for the poor and the orphans blew my mind in an important and permanent way. We all who handle the concepts and practices of ecological design on any level are regularly impressed with how beneficial the activity is to everyone and everything concerned (people, plants, planet, etc); and the possibility of providing radical help to those in need (including the potential of sustainability in the face of various levels of societal collapse) have hovered in our minds, and for some have become a focus. But Warren Brush and crew are leading the charge here in a way that is commendable in the highest order of commendability; and as he takes his hat off in the reposted comments below, I take my hat way off to him and the @uryadis_village team. Far West has in recent years began a journey of discovery of mission and purpose that has been, well….a journey -and one of discovery. We have discovered another level of purpose through this posting Mr Brush. Thank you!
Thank you to the @uryadis_village team for a heartfelt week of completing earthworks, rainwater harvesting structures, extended planting, nutrient cycling systems, and so much more… This is an amazing permaculture designed orphanage in development that cares for babies and children that have no one to care for them. My hats are off to the committed staff for approaching this project in such a holistic manner. – Warren Brush
