      I just came across a new site, that shows the international effort

        Thanks Kostas,

        Glad that Anthony Delfau's useful "On Seedballs" compilation site provides news
        and perhaps news kind of excitement for you. Everyone knew about it already i
        thought, as it is focused on only seedballs, with some more general nature
        farming related interest on the side.
        Very interesting is his focus within the seedballs subject on ecological
        restoration of nature, of forests, of deserts, etcetera, rather than seedballs
        focussed on human food growing. In that regard which is somewhat tangential to
        the topic in this group, Anthony's interests and professional practises in
        ecological restoration are the same as my interests and professional practises
        doing ecological restoration in south-eastern Australia, here, over my 25 years
        of it.

        From some 'up and down' extensive internet communications between him & i, i can
        vouch for the fact that he's an extremely good bloke, a great bloke (as we say
        in Australian English vernacular - bloke meaning male person, man, ...), and has
        worked until i last communicated with him a few months ago in Brisbane, QLD,
        Australia, as well as previously in USA and Europe including France.

        I'm sorry to be the bearer of making that a little-less-new news for you, that
        he's been around here as a member of this our group since August 8th 2010.

        He said that he's been in contact with Panos there through his "On Seedballs"
        page, from around about that time.

        Yo Anthony, 'Come out! Come out! here in our group. Wherever you are'!?


        Biggest best wishes to all,

        Jason Stewart

          Message 4 of 9 , Feb 7, 2011
            Dear friend Kostas,

            quoting you to me:
            "Its critical that we act, on a worldwide effort to change agriculture as it is
            practiced today, and to plant billions of trees in order to have a place for us
            and our children on this planet."

            My reply:
            'You're telling me! '
            (the dictionary defintion of this vernacular English: informal used
            to emphasize that one is already well aware of something or in complete
            agreement with a statement.)

            —what i've been 'acting' doing in successful nature restoration practises
            myself, in educating adults, the young and children, in advocating and in
            banging on about (vernacular English meaning: saying) for more than 25 years
            here in south eastern Oz.

            At once both critically and as a rave, i must add saying that all the more
            urgency and importance, has:
            personal action alone in one's own nature farm or nature garden practise,
            without any other kinds of action, is not enough (scholarly: it gets called
            mindless empiricism) to avert 'collapse' at this late stage in *human material
            affluence multiplied by growth* history (IPAT for those who know it).
            'Acting' doing: That i take for granted in my own practical life, as i have done
            and my late father had done, for the last 25 or more years.
            Spreading the messages:
            All the way to the depths of the philosophical message(s);
            Right all the way back up to the shallow softly softly introductory messages to
            encourage everyone;
            (and continuing the metaphor of going in all available directions of depth,
            shallowness, across ways -width, breadth, and height):
            Critically piercing or cutting across all the way through all those which we
            know inside-our-hearts-at-least are bullshit philosophies, propaganda, marketing
            horse-shit, empty ideologies, racialism, false evidences, pseudo-religions,
            pseudo-sciences, political spin and obscurantism crap, all which we've (i at
            least have) all had shoved in our faces, which have been making the general
            population, nearly everyone recently in the 'western' influenced world at least,
            obscured from reality, from each of our sovereignties, from real robust respect
            (which necessarily is mutual)
            and have been making the general population, nearly everyone recently in the
            'western' influenced world at least, 'skeptical' of the truths of all these
            messages; (and)
            –have been being obscured, blinded and skeptical of those natural messages, of
            liberating ourselves to reach back to each of our own 'inner already known'
            great heights (enlightenment)
            – each of our own birth-rite personal sovereignties on which this inner
            enlightenment founds itself;
            in the way that late Mr. Fukuoka Masanobu sensei and Dr. Vandana Shiva do so
            well, for two critical examples;
            (this: –has all the more urgency and importance.)


            Biggest best wishes to all,

                  Dear friend Kostas,



                  quoting you to me:

                  "Its critical that we act, on a worldwide effort to change agriculture as it is

                  practiced today, and to plant billions of trees in order to have a place for us

                  and our children on this planet."



                  My reply:

                  'You're telling me! '

                  (the dictionary defintion of this vernacular English: informal used

                  to emphasize that one is already well aware of something or in complete

                  agreement with a statement.)



                  —what i've been 'acting' doing in successful nature restoration practises

                  myself, in educating adults, the young and children, in advocating and in

                  banging on about (vernacular English meaning: saying) for more than 25 years

                  here in south eastern Oz.



                  At once both critically and as a rave, i must add saying that all the more

                  urgency and importance, has:

                  personal action alone in one's own nature farm or nature garden practise,

                  without any other kinds of action, is not enough (scholarly: it gets called

                  mindless empiricism) to avert 'collapse' at this late stage in *human material

                  affluence multiplied by growth* history (IPAT for those who know it).

                  'Acting' doing: That i take for granted in my own practical life, as i have done

                  and my late father had done, for the last 25 or more years.

                  Spreading the messages:

                  All the way to the depths of the philosophical message(s);

                  Right all the way back up to the shallow softly softly introductory messages to

                  encourage everyone;

                  (and continuing the metaphor of going in all available directions of depth,

                  shallowness, across ways -width, breadth, and height):

                  Critically piercing or cutting across all the way through all those which we

                  know inside-our-hearts-at-least are bullshit philosophies, propaganda, marketing

                  horse-shit, empty ideologies, racialism, false evidences, pseudo-religions,

                  pseudo-sciences, political spin and obscurantism crap, all which we've (i at

                  least have) all had shoved in our faces, which have been making the general

                  population, nearly everyone recently in the 'western' influenced world at least,

                  obscured from reality, from each of our sovereignties, from real robust respect

                  (which necessarily is mutual)

                  and have been making the general population, nearly everyone recently in the

                  'western' influenced world at least, 'skeptical' of the truths of all these

                  messages; (and)

                  –have been being obscured, blinded and skeptical of those natural messages, of

                  liberating ourselves to reach back to each of our own 'inner already known'

                  great heights (enlightenment)

                  – each of our own birth-rite personal sovereignties on which this inner

                  enlightenment founds itself;

                  in the way that late Mr. Fukuoka Masanobu sensei and Dr. Vandana Shiva do so

                  well, for two critical examples;

                  (this: –has all the more urgency and importance.)



                  Biggest best wishes to all,



                  Jason Stewart

                  Thanks Jason,

                  we needed this info put together in this manner - its good work.

                  its good to know that Antony is a member of this group.

                    Thank you Kostas, I agree – in complete agreement with a statement. – both your sentences below and the previous email message. Sorry the wording of the
                    Message 9 of 9 , Feb 8, 2011
                      Thank you Kostas,

                      I agree –"in complete agreement with a statement."– both your sentences below
                      and the previous email message.

                      Sorry the wording of the words after that, quoting:
                      "'You're telling me! '(the dictionary defintion of this vernacular English:
                      informal used
                      to emphasize that one is already well aware of something or in complete

                      agreement with a statement.)"
                      – in the rest of my reply was rather pithy –i've always been really busy–, and
                      pithy (or terse or dense) language is quick for my own perhaps–vain attempts to
                      articulate deep points, but pithy (or terse or dense) language isn't much good
                      for readers who haven't already 'seen for themselves' what one is talking about,
                      such as who are on a part of or a different learning curve.
                      This is why personal face-to-face communication is so much better communication
                      –one of the many reasons why.


                      Biggest best wishes to all,

                      Jason Stewart

                      Hi Jason,

                      I did not mean to "tell you" - I think sometimes, I speak/write to hear my self
                      speak i.e. to give orders to myself, certainly not to anyone else.

                      We all do the best we can, and we should be thank full for what we are able to
                      accomplish.

                      Kostas
