Green Wizardry!

CarolineCasey-DavidBluneCaroline welcomes the return of permaculture-distillation green wizard David Blume, mega-contributor to Rising Renaissance of Reverent Ingenuity (and fellow cahooter at the imminent Symbiosis festival
As Venus returns from the Underworld, carrying the mojo of Symbiosis….

“David Blume, researcher, author, farmer and alcohol fuel pioneer first began to work on the puzzle of how to broadly disseminate the means of producing ethanol efficiently and on the smaller scale in the 1970’s. .. A decade ago, David came back to bioethanol and began research for his comprehensive book Alcohol Can be a Gas! The book is an in-depth exploration of the entire field of bioethanol from its forgotten history to the current state-of-the-art. On one hand, the book is deeply technological explaining the fine details of ethanol production, while on the other hand, it paints a broad vision of alcohol fuel production — a core component of a highly productive ecologically-based system of agriculture.”

Symbiosis: a biological term, “union for life of two different organisms based on mutually benefit,” from Greek symbiosis “a living together,” from symbioun “live together,” from symbios “(one) living together from assimilated form of syn- “together” (see syn-) + bios “life”

“When we approach with reverence, great things decide to approach us. Our real life comes to the surface and its light awakens the concealed beauty in things. When we walk on the earth with reverence, beauty will decide to trust us. The rushed heart and arrogant mind lack the gentleness and patience to enter that embrace.”
-John O’Donohue, Beauty: The Invisible Embrace
