Open Source Ecology: Permaculture and Local Food Systems

By Marcin Jakubowski
Open Farm Tech

We are proposing the integration of perennial agriculture, living gene bank, open source equipment, and agroecology – or what we call open source agroecology – towards a replicable package of providing healthy, local food for everybody. We propose community supported production as a means of linking the urban and rural landscapes in a mutual inter-independence for providing food, biofuels, lumber, and other products. Can this become a viable and mainstreamable model for providing needs from local resources? What items of local production can be included in this? If our program is insufficient, what are we missing?

Moreover, we are starting a community-supported gene bank as part of our community-supported production enterprise model. You can read more information than is mentioned in the video by reading the extended transcript below.

Our work in general is aimed at building the infrastructure for real-life Global Villages – which you can replicate in whole or in part. You can also see our earlier presentation on the Global Village Construction Set. To support this work, join the 1000 True Fans – 1000 Global Villages campaign – by committing to $10 per month for 24 months. Here is the PayPal subscription button, where you can use either PayPal, credit card, or bank account to commit to the subscription.

  3. Way cool. But I can’t afford the 10$ for real!

  4. I haven’t looked at what you are doing completely yet. However, I’m just wondering do you think you will encounter “commons dilemmas”. Common issue with shared resources.

    OSE technology is what the developing countries have been looking for. It will save them from the embarrasment and blame games that colonial masters have been playing with them that technology transfer is not working through theit inappropriate method of technology transfer that have been totally failured since the end of colonial periods. I will like to be a partner of this new technology methodology. Please send me an e-mail address or phone of contact to foster our relation to a profitable level.
    Good and well done job.
