Who knew permaculture principles could be so catchy?
Formidable Vegetable Sound System, out of Australia, turns an education in sustainability into an epic dance experience. Quirky, upbeat, and oh-so-appealing, this group’s musical magic will have you humming about homegrown roquette all day!
Their first album, Permaculture: A Rhymer’s Manual, was released in April. Already popular on Australia’s festival circuit, the band is currently touring Canada, the US, and the UK. Check out their website for details and to buy the album.
And the best part is, there’s a ukulele!Comments (1)

A sad tale, told to beautiful music. Please spare a thought for Frosty the Snowman this holiday season. His future looks bleak.

One of the most expensive music videos ever made was Michael Jackson’s ‘Earth Song’. Perhaps an appropriate listen today…. The rather dramatic footage was shot in four locations – the Amazon forest, a war zone of Croatia, Tanzania and New York.

High school students from inner city Los Angeles recently came to experience permaculture through Quail Springs. As a part of the Green Ambassadors’ program, currently based out of Environmental Charter High School in Lawndale, CA, the group of 10 students and their fearless leaders spent four days learning about permaculture, natural building, and relationship building with community and each other.
Not only did they learn the value of living symbiotically with their environment, they also thought of creative applications for the knowledge to be used in their school, communities, and homes. Every member of the group expressed their gratitude for the trip, many with a desire to return for Quail Springs’ Sustainable Vocations program this summer.
