The professor was Stephen Covey, the author of „The Seven Habits of Highly effective People“ – a book I can wholeheartedly recommend to anyone wanting to move or shake anything in this world.

permaculture International Seed Library Forum May 3-6 Tucson AZ

International Seed Library Forum
Tuscon, Arizona, USA
May 3-6, 2015
Come join us for four days of conversation around seed access, growing community and seed libraries. Register here.

Overview
The goal of the four-day event is to bring together experts from public libraries, nonprofits, universities, and food banks across the United States and in other countries to further improve access and management of local seed resources. The forum highlights the increasingly important role that seed libraries play in creating best practices for seed saving and seed
sharing at the community level. Panel discussions will cover a wide range of topics including: increasing the quality, and diversity of community seed resources, establishing seed library protocols, documenting the seed library movement, increasing access for low income households, and nurturing the next generation of seed savers in school gardens. The forum also addresses recent regulatory challenges to seed library operations in five states.

The event kicks off with a field trip to the Mission Garden, a living agricultural museum of Sonoran Desert-adapted heritage fruit trees, local heirloom crops, and edible native plants. Other events include a community seed swap and a screening of the documentary, “Seeds of Time,” followed by a Q & A session with agricultural policy expert and inspiration of the Svalbard (“Doomsday”) Seed Vault in Norway, Cary Fowler. The closing event features a celebration to benefit the Jardin Botanico de Oaxaca and the Friends of Tucson’s Birthplace with tamales, local music, and the pre-release of the May/June 2015 issue of Edible Baja Arizona magazine. Coming soon: full schedule will be posted at the Pima County Public Library website.

Registration & Fees
The forum is free, and the online pre-registration deadline is April 17. Registration is limited to 120 participants, and some events will be open to the public.

Seed Swap, May 3 (Free)
“Seeds of Time” Screening, May 3 (Free for registered participants and General Admission price for the public) Celebration of Seeds Literary Reading, May 4 (Free and open to the public)
Closing Event Celebration, May 5 ($25 for registered participants and the public)

Speakers
Confirmed speakers include: Gary P. Nabhan (Author of Enduring Seeds, W.K. Kellogg Sustainable Food Systems Endowed Chair, Southwest Center at the University of Arizona); Scott Chaskey (Author, Seedtime: On the History, Husbandry, Politics and Promise of Seeds); Cindy Conner (Author, Seed Libraries and Other Means of
Keeping Seeds in the Hands of the People); Cary Fowler (Author of Shattering, Agriculture
Policy Expert/Senior Advisor, Global Crop Diversity Trust); Ken Greene (Founder, Hudson Valley
Seed Library, NY); Justine Hernandez (Seed Librarian, Pima County Public Library, AZ); Rebecca Newburn (Richmond Grows Seed Lending Library); and John Torgrimson (Executive Director, Seed Savers Exchange).

permaculture Your xmas lecture

A professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items in front of him. When the class began, he wordlessly picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with golf balls. He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was. The professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles roll
ed into the open areas between the golf balls. He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed it was.
The professor next picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up everything else. He asked once more if the jar was full.. The students responded with a unanimous ‘yes.’
The professor then produced two Beers from under the table and poured the entire contents into the jar effectively filling the empty space between the sand.The students laughed..
‘Now,’ said the professor as the laughter subsided, ‘I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life. The golf balls are the important things—-your family, your children, your health, your friends and your favorite passions—-and if everything else was lost and only they remained, your life would still be full. The pebbles are the other things that matter like your job, your house and your car.. The sand is everything else—-the small stuff.
‘If you put the sand into the jar first,’ he continued, ‘there is no room for the pebbles or the golf balls. The same goes for life.
If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff you will never have room for the things that are important to you.
Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness. Spend time with your children. Spend time with your parents. Visit with grandparents. Take your spouse out to dinner. Play another 18. There will always be time to clean the house and mow the lawn.
Take care of the golf balls first—-the things that really matter. Set your priorities. The rest is just sand.
One of the students raised her hand and inquired what the Beer represented. The professor smiled and said, ‘I’m glad you asked.’ The Beer just shows you that no matter how full your life may seem, there’s always room for a couple of Beers with a friend.
