Especially with these folks .We known they can not control the spread of these novel genes and the herbicides glufosinate and dicamba can’t be good on food and fodder or the environment. As important as this is I would like to see a public comments change their minds but don’t hold out much hope. Here we go again. This is a Big Deal . No Joke !!

permaculture A collection of 3, 000 photographs produced in the Middle East by the Maison Bonfils, from 1867 to the 1910s. (for those interested in finding examples of permaculture practice, indigenous and municipal, throughout history)

A collection of 3,000 photographs produced in the Middle East by the Maison Bonfils, from 1867 to the 1910s. (for those interested in finding examples of permaculture practice, indigenous and municipal, throughout history)

http://eap.bl.uk/database/overview_item.a4d?catId=196374;r=24464 EAP644: The Fouad Debbas Collection: assessment and digitisation of a precious private collection. Photographs from Maison Bonfils (1867-1910s), Beirut, Lebanon

The aim of this project is to clean, list, index, catalogue and digitise a collection of 3,000 photographs produced in the Middle East by the Maison Bonfils, from 1867 to the 1910s.
The 3,000 items consist of albumen prints gathered in albums and portfolios, glass plates, stereos, cabinet cards and cartes de visite. They are part of the general Fouad Debbas Collection, which contains more than 40,000 photographs. The objective is to undertake a survey, and increase access to and visibility of this most valuable and endangered collection. The Fouad Debbas Bonfils collection is the most extensive, varied and richest photographic collection produced in the Levant at the end of the Ottoman period. It is in fact one of the very few photographic collections produced in Beirut from the late Ottoman period which are still preserved. Established in 1867 in Beirut, the Bonfils house set out the first photographic studio in Beirut and established photography as a business. As such Mr Bonfils, his wife Lydie, (apparently the first woman photographer of the whole area at that time) and children, all succeeded in capturing a region of immense physical beauty (the landscape photos of Beirut and Baalbeck), of varied ethnic composition (various portraits), and of rapid socio-economic change, at a crucial moment of the region’s history. The Bonfils Debbas collection is clearly an invaluable document registering the history of a region at a crucial crossroads in the wake of great historical upheaval which was about to sweep the region and bring about the Modern Middle East as we know it.
The Fouad Debbas Collection contains approximately 3,000 items signed by Bonfils between the 1867 studio creation and the 1910s when Lydie Bonfils worked in the family’s Beirut studio for some time after her son abandoned the trade in the early 1900s. This Bonfils collection gathered 62 albums including the 7 famous “Mansell Albums” (approx.1966 photographs); 24 portfolios with approximately 720 photographs from Bonfils; 90 stereoscopic views; a hundred glass plates; 32 cabinet cards and “cartes de visite”. While Fouad Debbas was passionate about research and identifying, for example, a chronology for stamps and signatures by Bonfils, he was not very concerned with preservation and some of this valuable material is now endangered.
The Fouad Debbas Bonfils collection faces many risks. Disassociation of the collection is an emergency situation, and the Bonfils sample is a very representative case. After Fouad Debbas passed away in 2001, the two remaining brothers took over ownership of the collection. The entire collection is housed in a commercial building, with no institutional guarantees for future. The two owners have not yet created a foundation or any structure to protect this heritage of such great value that documents culture, tradition, customs, skills and arts of the Middle East from the pre-industrialism period.
The lack of a database facilitates neither the manager of the collection nor scholars to find a photograph among the 40,000 items. Although the Fouad Debbas Collection is often asked for loans in international exhibitions, finding the right images is a real challenge, since no proper inventory or database exists. Digital preservation standards and directives concerning manipulation as well as the verification of information contained in captions (title, techniques) should be conducted. The creation of a proper database will facilitate preservation and access to the collection. Where necessary, some documents will be rehoused. Lebanon, and the region at large, lacks any serious governmental structures and institutions capable of protecting and preserving the region’s cultural heritage. Only Bonfils and other photographers’ witnesses remain, where property developers replace traditional workshops and activities of our region. Moreover, the Damocles sword of a new armed conflict haunting Lebanon and the instability of the region, with the current war in Syria in particular, are so many risks that threaten the Lebanese and Middle Eastern heritage. [show less]
In this context, the Fouad Debbas Collection would at least remain “alive”, at least as a digital copy in a Lebanese university and in the British Library. We believe that the efforts of one man to gather the memory of this region should not be lost forever.

permaculture Regenerative Farm Enterprise Planning – Oct 18-23 VA

Very excited to be part of this course!

*Regenerative Farm Enterprise Planning*

*With Eric Toensmeier, Rafter Sass Ferguson, and Elizabeth Ü*

*October 18-23, 2014 at Shannon Farm Community In Afton, VA*

*Cost: Sliding Scale $595-$895*

*to register or for more information visitwww.blueridgepermaculture.net *

*or contact tygerlilley@gmail.com *

Scaling up ecological agriculture is one of the critical challenges we face in addressing climate change and the global food crisis. Integrated perennial farm businesses are a key part of the solution when planned and managed effectively; join us to learn and practice how!

This 6-day course integrates time-tested farm business planning tools with the holistic landscape planning of permaculture and cutting-edge creative financing strategies. Experienced leaders will guide participants through an intensive planning/design process, from initial visioning, through successional enterprise budgeting, to design of the farm landscape. In this dynamic course, participants will design in teams working on a shared project, with structured time for participants to integrate what they are learning with their own goals and projects. Special sessions will bring in the insight of experienced permaculture farmers.

*TOPICS *include:

• identifying and prioritizing values and goals

• land location and capability and land use planning

• enterprise selection strategies with a focus on…

• regenerative farming practices and production systems: perennial and tree crops, managed grazing and livestock integration, and other practices

• financial modeling, record keeping, and optimising financial sustainability

• financing regenerative enterprises through community supported models, crowdfunding, and other creative methods

• start-up and long-term development strategies on US permaculture farms

• budgeting for integrated perennial and livestock systems

• market research and strategies

Participants will come away with the skills necessary to build their own regenerative enterprise scenario, and a roadmap for fleshing it out into a full farm and business plan.
