The Permaculture Pioneers “The greatest change we need to make is from consumption to
production, even if on a small scale, in our gardens. If only 10% of
us do this, there is enough for everyone. Hence the futility of
revolutionaries who have no gardens, who depend on the very system
they attack, and who produce words and bullets, not food and shelter“(Bill Mollison).

AUTarcaMatricultura - Permaculture Documentary Permaculture activists take
responsibility for their thoughts, actions and feelings by
"understanding and copying nature" as well as "studying and
imitating peaceful and egalitarian societies".
The step-out-pioneer recognizes the exponentially growing destruction of
Mother Earth and the oppression of her creation as a consequence of the
patriarchal-characterized world view and therefore she steps out
deliberately. The step-out-pioneer says no to the chaos of war, economic
and social injustice, atomic, genetically engineered and electromagnetic
contamination, abuse and exploitation, logos-driven perception and
The step-in-pioneer puts
life in the centre of her work and her activities. She encourages
vividness with heart and creativity, the joy and the health for all
beings; she feels that she is part of the whole, part of Mother Earth.
The step-in-pioneer walks the path towards life-centred livelihood
focused on the origin, he creates powerful visions of a healthy Mother
Earth and he assumes full responsibility for his actions. To become more
uncompromising and more life loving there are changes to plan and to
realize in all areas of life.
are in dependence with the existing systems that are based on a
patriarchal world view. The successful step out is not to be forced
overnight. The deeper we get involved with life and the more skilful we
get of life-giving activity, the more sustainable we step out of
consumerism, greed and exploitation. The step-out-pioneer knows that six
thousand years of patriarchalisation of the human race leave their mark
to the innermost mental, emotional and spiritual existence and to the
base of cellular level, too. Vividness became divided, oppressed and
buried. The step-in-pioneer liberates herself gradually from the
patriarchal world view. She uses this new sense of liberty and spare
time to build her Life-Biotope. The step-in-pioneer liberates gently the
buried and frozen vividness in his nature. This gained freedom gives him
ground, orientation, spontaneity, grace and the ability to empathic
participation. In order to win back life, the step-in-pioneer works his
outer as well as his inner world. The inner and the outer working levels
fertilize each other mutually.

Translation from the
original: Lucienne Mueller, Chile
I am shivering because of cold and fear; I seethe with anger,
foam over in incomprehension, the heart swashes, the tears flow
ceaselessly with the rain at the same time: The skies cry, the
earth is livid with shock, in the depths of the caves, unending
reverberation of the unspeakable.
The poison made by fissioned people, crawls without warning,
fissions, destroys, slowly, steadily, suspends the wheel of
time. The poison made by fissioned people enwraps the delusion
of wealth, generates deformed figures, contaminates water,
earth, fire, air and life.
Long since the beings of the air knew about it, the birds, bees
and spiders, long since the beings of the earth knew about it,
the worms, the snakes and rabbits, long since words failed the
beings of the oceans, the dolphins, the turtles and octopuses.
Earth mother globe, big wonder of whom I am a child, I beg You:
Forgive all my actions which I did and still do against you
because of ignorance, arrogance or vanity; forgive me where I
don't rebel because of laziness; forgive me where I participate
in fissioning life because of cowardice.
Grand mother of all life and all souls, with your help I try to
cement, sow together, create ground, for your beings, all my
sisters and brothers, the birds, bees and spiders, the worms,
snakes and rabbits, the whales, turtles and octopuses.
Carrier of the holy cycles of life, I thank you, for the
strength and the distinctness, to always find the sense again to
counter steer: With firm paces my feet want to touch the stones;
without blood on my hands the seeds shall be laid in the ground;
my conversation with the trees shall be with a pure heart; a
womb full with thankfulness and joy shall welcome your
deliciousness; clear windows shall be my eyes for my children;
who know the truth from my soul and straighten I shall my spine
for a reconnection to the grand wonder of life.
