Geoff Lawton published this link to some GORGEOUS & thought-provoking free "card" downloads.  From Geoff:
"Absolutely beautiful. Brett Pritchard, a permaculturist since 1991, put together something that really caught my eye: A 21 card set of the original permaculture ethics and principles. Many of the illustrations were painted by one of Bill Mollison's daughters, Frances, and the entire set is free to download. " http://www.permaculturefundamentals.com/?p=72 (http://www.permaculturefundamentals.com/?p=72)

What neither Geoff nor Brett is promoting is the fact that Brett has a GoFundMe to raise funds for a Permaculture project in Borneo.  From Brett:
"Hi all. I have made the ethics and principles card set freely available as I didn’t want to do it as a commercial venture but as a way of honouring Bill Mollison and his incredible visionary work. Permaculture altered my life totally and gave it real meaning for the first time. While I enjoy my permaculture work here in Australia, where I’m currently developing community food gardens, my heart has always been in overseas permaculture aid work.

I’m currently seeking a little bit of financial help to initiate an alley cropping demonstration site in a village in the Borneo rainforest. The Penan people were traditionally hunter gatherers with a tiny number are still living this lifestyle. The Penan village I work with settled around 45-50 years ago and began carrying out swidden agriculture like the settled Dayak tribes. Now due to a doubling in population size and a reduction in available land due to plantation developments the people are having to go into their undisturbed rainforest reserve area to clear for rice growing."

Looks like there's been some progress on the Penan GoFundMe - but it's still got a ways to go!
I REALLY like the "cards" & I really hope this community gets behind the Penan initiative since this community is a force to be reckoned with when we put our minds to it!
