    for agriculture. Medicine- I can see. But the biocide industry is just another extension of the military industrial complex. The victims in the war will ultimately be humans.

    If we spent the same amount of energy on observing, researching, and designing landscapes and ecologies rather than attempting to prop up industrial monocultures we would be a hell of a lot further along than we are now.

        Sliced my hand open last week while using a machete to cut back grass. I had a momentary lapse of attention due to my mind wandering to thoughts of lunch (local lamb, gifted to a friend)... sliced my left pinky open quite well.

        So- be careful my friends!
