      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,

      I just came across a new site, that shows the international effort
      in natural farming and re forestation being undertaken in different parts of the
      world. It does not show the extraordinary work being done in India, by our
      friend Raju and the others. I just send them an email wit a link to Raju's
      Picasa albums.


      The site is http://sites.google.com/site/onseedballs/worldwide-projects

          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.)

                Dear Jason,Since you are already into advocacy etc etc. Could you please educate me about how to go about doing this? I am myself planning to start but have no idea where and what to say and whom to say. Secondly, do you use computer multimedia, in which case maybe you could share those as well.

                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

                —in practice (at the moment in summer season) in the nature farm,

                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.

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

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

                • Jason Stewart
                  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 8 of 9 , Feb 8, 2011
                  • 0 Attachment
                    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
                    —in practice (at the moment in summer season) in the nature farm,
                    region:far east gippsland,
                    state: Victoria,
                    Oz (vernacular for so called Australia).

                    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
