Subject: [permaculture] Final Draft of Mother Earth News Petition
> Dear Group,
> The following is my final draft of the "petition" to the Mother Earth
> News (MEN). It is actually an informal request asking that MEN publish an
> update to it's March/April 1980 article on the work of Jean Pain and his
> "forest thicket compost" methods.
> By replying to this email I will assume that you are giving me
> permission to send your email address to MEN in the context of this
> request, only. No other use of your email address will be employed by me.
> Thanks for your interest. John Fritz.
> Dear Mother Earth News,
> A number of participants in a Permaculture yahoogroup that I belong to,
> would like to see a MEN update to its' March/April 1980 article about the
> work of Jean Pain. We feel that widespread knowledge about Jean Pain's
> forest thicket compost methods would help advance rural economies; support
> the healing of our forests; increase the productivity of our gardens; and
> empower rural self-reliance by providing local, inexpensive fuel (methane
> gas)for space heating, water, and cooking.
> We encourage MEN to publish an update to it's March/April 1980 story,
> especially concerning details that would enable easy replication of Pain's
> methods and how this could offset dwindling natural gas supplies for rural
> Please see the link below to an article in the Permaculture Activist

> article and provide the "nuts and bolts" of implementing a forest thicket
> compost system for Another Kind of Energy.
> Sincerely, John Fritz.
