Collapse Culture is

Collapse Culture is
How can we thrive while fostering the whole of Life?
How can we get what we need without toil & strife?
How can we feed a hundred thousand, without fossil fuels, while the land around us is turning to desert and the land under us is mostly pavement?

Collapse Culture is
Should we fix up our poorly designed house, or raze it & build a new simple efficient one with local materials and our hands?

Collapse Culture is
fostering native species AND embracing exotics--just getting to know what grows around you. Seeing your neighborhood with no more fences, no more lawns, no more cars, children roaming free, green growing fruit trees nut trees berry patches perennial grains ducks chickens rock doves squirrels venison, & fish if there are any left without mercury. Elders telling stories about the day they bought their freedom.

Collapse Culture is
knowing it will take a lot more than voting, petitions, letters to authorities, recycling, high tech, nonprofit corporations.

It will take working together, face to face as friends, ignoring the incompetent, d.i.y. improvisation, learning & imagination.

Collapse Culture is
the City becoming the Garden

It's what FEELS right.

Collapse Culture is NOT "the end is near," but "the beginning is here."
