This week saw Patrick telling two versions of our story. At Melbourne Free University Patrick speaks about why we use the term neopeasant, and how this term found us and what it means in the context of conquest, dispossessions, stolen land and climate change.
The word peasant is from the Latin pagus meaning country or land.
Earlier in the week he was in conversation with Bushy, Adam and Ged on 3RRR's show Greening the Apocalypse.
Both these talks here are audio only.

From the packaging-free food we consume,
including walked-for mushrooms,
to the manure from this food we make,
and the house and garden tours we take,
to the things we grow and store,
inside the cellar door,
to the fun we've bean,
and the community fun team,
to the things we (carbon-positively) transport,
and the abundance we nurture and support,
to the regenerative knowledges we teach,
and the people we introduce having the biggest reach,
from our elders who inspire,
to the politics we fire,
To the life we raise,
and the life we soberly erase (in both grief and praise),
to the insects we hive,
and the pragmatic skills we use to thrive,
to other skills we tend,
and the species we plant and teach to defend,
Come learn with us through life's full force,
at our 2-week Permaculture Living Course:
