I think I saw this documentary around 2012, this is definitely the most well-researched, informed and put together documentary regarding the evidence that Cell phone / Mobile Phone, Wifi, RF and other Emf transmission technology Does In Fact have a pretty severely negative effect on most living organisms including us.

This is not the documentary that you should save to watch later, you need to see this now and share it with as many contacts as you can ! ! !

With 5G being sneakily brought into our societies around mainly the western world behind our backs, this is only going to get worse, 5G ‘technology’ is far more harmful and powerful than anything that came before it, it is also designed to work over short distances and so, they will be installing the antennas all over. In the UK it has been exposed by insiders that the 5G antennas have been included in LED street lights that have recently been installed by many Councils – soon you will not have to worry about the large mobile phone mast a few hundred meters from your house as you will have 5 you can see right in your street from your front window!!

Click on the slide and play the below video from the 42:25 mark until 42:41, this is precisely what I have been saying for years regarding scientists and whim they work for / where the funding comes from.

If your council has recently put up new LED lamp heads on your older street lamp posts, try see if you can see an antenna on top (Usually a short black stick-like antenna) this means they have placed the 5G technology into government property without our consent .. ie: you and I are paying for this so that large corporations can earn billions whilst we get adverse health effects but hey, at least we will have super-fast Wifi right???

The documentary in numbers:

Over the last 25 years, 5 butterfly species have become extinct in Britain, 36 species of Australian Shore birds have decreased in numbers by 75%, 50% decline in all European Grassland Butterflies, Bee numbers have dropped by about 70%, Half of all known British butterfly species are under threat of extinction, 62% of Asian waterbirds Declining or Extinct, 4 species of American Bee have declined by 98% … the list goes on.

The date of the 2018 Off-Grid festival has been set, ticket sales are on and the organisers boast a larger site with about 50% higher capacity.

Previous events were held at Goffin’s Land, Exeter in Devon, now they have moved to Tapeley park, Christie Estates, Instow in North Devon. Click here for a Map of the area.

I first stumbled upon this event last year a mere week or so before the actual event! No money and not having enough time to prepare, as well as not being able to request in such short notice for holiday leave put an end to the possibility of going. I made sure that 2018 will be the year to attend and it seems like I will definitely be able to go, even if only for a day using their cheaper day pass tickets…

It looks like a great event especially for Children, giving them the opportunity to spend quality, fun time away from their phones, computers and tablets.

Switch off, tune in, turn on …

 

The above video is footage from the 2016 event as a promotional for 2017’s event.

Below is more of the 2016 event and shows a little more including all of the entertainment side.

If one is interested in Off-Grid methods, even just out of interest sake or to learn a thing or two, take a look below at the extensive workshops list for each day from 2016, I can’t believe a 3 day event was just so jam packed ! ! !

 

Thank you viewers from the Czech republic! Viewing my blog statistics recently has shown that viewers from your country have suddenly come up to be high up in the top 4 mostly viewed by country, I’m not sure why but I am grateful and hopeful that people in the Czech Republic are shifting consciousness and going back to nature and the land…

To say Thanks, here is a video of sustainable and nature friendly organic farming and farmland regeneration with Permaculturist / Farmer Petr Marada.

Audio in Czech and sub-titles in English, Enjoy!

 

Here is a nice little video on Permaculture as well as a Permablitz in action, being put into practice in Hawaii, at the  1:40min mark of the video where they are re-designing a back garden into a permaculture garden, I could not help but realise that one day perhaps, every garden in that little town / area would convert into the same or similar idea, ending with the entire town becoming one large permaculture site which merely has some houses and roads in-between the various food forests and vegetable gardens!

Hawaii Permablitz Back-Garden Design

Imagine if a society like that could end up breaking down their garden walls to effectively remove what are real social and environmental barriers and upgrading their consciousness to the point of respect that no one should own any land and we are merely just temporary users of land – that we do need some small space to actually live on but we use the garden/s for growing and therapeutic reasons. Creating in effect, a large wildlife friendly human oasis similar in concept to the ‘green belts’ which some cities have

-Jeff Permie ( Growinagrden.wordpress.com )

At the 3:22 min mark, Paul explains the difference between consuming your own home grown Organic food and the taste you can sense if you should happen to go back to eating or consuming store / generally available factory or monoculture farmed foods.

At 5:00 min’s you get the full tour of his back garden and the design which has a beehive, banana trees, fig, limes, vegetables (chard, beets, rocket and salads), Sweet Potato, Tumeric and ginger to name a few.

In the context of special interests and corporate interests that are looking to control our food supply, this is again a very simple answer, if we start to shift from being consumers with rights towards being producers with responsibilities … then we actually take back our power.

– Matt

Whilst most people who may have heard the term or read something about Permaculture, link it to Growing Food / Sustainable Farming methods, Permaculture Design itself can be used in many aspects including town planning,  right up to Large City Design and no, I’m not exaggerating at all!

Destroyed Buildings in Marawi City, Philippines

Personally my opinion on the future and implementation of Permaculture Design in Urban areas will lie in the developing world, whilst I strongly know that there are many talented and enthusiastic individuals in the so called ”first world” countries, it is in my opinion that this is where the most red tape and corporate dictated bureaucracy will be experienced.

The city of Marawi in Mindanao Southern Philippines was the victim of a 5+ month conflict between Local terrorist groups and Government forces, which ended around October 2017. Most people worldwide saw the news on mainstream media and alternative / social media (due to the fact that both groups decided to pledge allegiance to ISIS) , I personally was quite shocked when image searching for the city after the conflict was over, it is almost reminiscent to video footage of Syria! (Syria and the Philippines have one distinct thing in common, the west are not very fond of the two leaders Bashar al Assad and Rodrigo Duterte – in other words, the recent conflicts in both countries are merely ……. coincidences)

Events like this, although being horrific in nature both for the local population and also the environment should be taken advantage of, a partially destroyed infrastructure can be repaired using locally sourced, sustainable materials instead of resource wasting and polluting materials such as concrete and so forth! Whilst rebuilding and construction is taking place, the machinery available can be used to install low cost and cost saving functions / technology such as solar and wind power systems on larger buildings, the possibilities are endless! With China becoming a dominant regional power and the Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte leaning away from US control to a Russian / Chinese friendship, this could see the Philippines entering trade agreements which could highly benefit the rebuilding of the area and future projects in the country, China (more…)

In a quest to try find out what happened to my childhood and to see if there are any alternatives for the future Generations, I stumbled upon something which I suspected existed but was not entirely sure how or what it would have even been labeled, let alone whether it would be clear from all too common government bureaucracy !

Well it does exist, mostly in Scandinavian countries but also across europe including Germany, Austria and is now being spread across the globe from Australia to the continental North America – even England is finally catching on (Although upon searching, there are quite a few listed individuals online but the ones anywhere remotely near my residence are only offering days-out sessions, it is not an actual school type Monday to Friday setting).

The Forest kindergarten is quite a popular theme and is growing in demand – 10% of all kindergartens in Denmark are Forest kindergartens, in this >12 minute quick documentary ”Kids Gone Wild” from an Australian media group (SBS Dateline), they visit a kindergarten in Denmark and get the chance to interview parents, the Pedagogue (teacher) as well as a teacher from a general primary school where kids from both normal kindergardens and forest kindergardens will converge to continue with their education.

Pedagogue: Only once I had to drive a boy to the Hospital with a big injury in 17 years, so I’m not worried,
Interviewer: And what was the injury?
Pedagogue: It was a parent who drove over the foot of a kid

Below some kids are having great fun building sculptures in the snow whilst being educated about famous Art:

 

Testimonials I have seen from people online discussing the difference between their own kid’s and friends or other family who went to forest schools / kindergartens is quite intriguing, the forest educated kids always want to be outside no matter the weather whilst the ‘normal’ kids seem to be more concerned with Television or other indoor technology such as tablets, smartphones or TV / Computer games which they spend countless hours on.

As a child who grew up in the eighties, I was there when the first TV gaming systems came out and subsequently get every console that came after due to a sibling being completely obsessed, however, we at least only spent a couple of hours at a time playing, we would then on our own accord, go outside to play. These days kids can spend up to 16 hours playing only stopping to rush to the toilet or boil a kettle to make unhealthy pot noodle soups!

For any of my UK followers or viewers who may want to see if there are any nearby, visit the Forest Kindergardten Association’s site.

As promised before and a common theme on my blog, (posting short interesting videos and tours of Permaculture Sites and Projects globally) I have found this Short Video of a really cool Permaculture project in San Marcos Sierras, Argentina, the Audio is both in English and Argentinian Spanish with a decent description from the interviewees of what the focus and aims of the community have.

The whole video is less than 7 minutes long and features Horses, beautiful gardens and a very beautiful house / dwelling.

Enjoy!
