> This video of Bay Area urban farming folks is pretty adorable/well done.
Is there any way to view this nice video?
Why didn't those folks make their own video and upload it to You Tube
instead of getting conned into letting the incompetent morons at
"basset.tv" take credit for their work. I was able to get it to play
once then it completely locked up and never came back. I suppose they
wanted me to put money in the slot like a pay toilet to get it to play
properly so I could view it normally. It is so disapointing to see good
permaculture resources wasted on sleazy commercial websites like that.
Yes, they certainly are spreading the good word, in their "inspiration"
section yet, i.e. not to do business with them. From their "products"
page: ethnographies, managed online communities, mindswarms, brand
strategy. What a joke. I think the brand strategy is key to what they
are really all about. These are the "white shoes" crowd who would try to
get into the world of permaculture for profit, ignoring everything
important about it, instead using the opportunity to sell something
unrelated rather than teaching. I class these folks with the creeps in
Costa Rica offering a PD course without any credentials or proper
background in the field. I noticed on the Costa Rica organization's
website a big section on Costa Rica and all important policies and laws
governing land purchase for absentee landowners and all the lucrative
opportunities available, no doubt, to their PD course clients,
some well-intentioned anticipating a real course in the practice of
permaculture. Those folks are real estate industry people from the US.
