As promised, with the release of this episode corresponding to my wife’s birthday, here’s something light hearted for you all: the first single from Charlie MGee’s forthcoming permaculture inspired album, Permaculture: A Rhymer’s Manual. This track is “No Such Thing As Waste” and comes from David Holmgren’s 6th principle, Produce No Waste.
I received this track while finishing up a recent episode and figured I’d give a listen while putting together the website notes and resource links. Call that a bad idea on my part. I got drawn in and stopped everything else to listen. Then start the track over and listen again. The music caught my attention first: fun, upbeat, and funky. Next the lyrics. And finally, since I produce audio many hours each week, the quality of the overall production. This is a top notch track that sounds good. The work that went into making this is obvious and I’m thankful to Charlie and crew for making it. I look forward to adding a copy to my toolbox to play for children, and adults, to increase their awareness of permaculture.
Like many projects, and even this podcast, Permaculture: A Rhymer’s Manual happened because of crowdfunding and the help of private individuals through small contributions. Charlie used WeTheTrees.com, Christian Shearer’s organization. I use your support via direct contributions. Find out more by clicking on the support tab of the website.
If you like this track, consider picking up the whole album. The official release date is April 6th, 2013. You can find out more at permaculturesongs.com or by clicking on the link in the show notes. In the meantime, enjoy this single.
