Bloomington Permaculture Guild member Kevin Polk just launched a new
web comic strip:
Permyz <http://www.permyz.com> Composting 7,000 years of empire.
Permyz is a light-hearted daily comic about a bunch of suburbanites
trying to convert their unintentional community into an ecovillage.
Rather than just kvetching about a very broken status quo, the strip
showcases positive alternatives: permaculture, transition towns, deep
ecology and a host of others that don't get much press. The name was
inspired by permaculture, a system of regenerative design whose students
sometimes refer to each other as "Permies <http://www.permies.com/>."
This strip contains no pesticides, sprays or animal products. It was
inked by hand in the USA and minimally processed in GIMP
<http://www.gimp.org/> on an old laptop running Ubuntu
Kev Polk, who writes and draws the comic, earned his permaculture design
certificate in 2006, published his first book <http://gaiome.com> in
2007, and participated in Transition Training in 2009. Prior to that,
he worked in software, astronomy, space exploration and archiving. He
lives with his wife Kimberly in Bloomington, Indiana.
"Be fruitful and mulch apply."
