Hi! I'm here to dive a little deeper into topics as #sustainability, eco #gardening and #permaculture. I'll mostly toot related stuff I'm doing and stuff I find on the web (artworks and articles).
I'm from northern Germany and am also interested in different IT topics, but I'll mostly toot about that on my first account @tofuwabohu
Hey useful-ish resource I wrote up how I do my composting which last summer i got up to processing something like 200lb a week in 40m2 using worms and physical labor.
it produces fertilizer and soil out of waste, which is punk as heck.
it even like, explicitly uses the sun in one step, which is literally solar.
/and/ it's solarpunk action week, so I'm even being trendy.
Didn't contribute anything to #solarpunkactionweek yet as I'm pretty busy but made some tasty hummus today. I used a pretty basic recipe:
2 tablespoons tahini (actually used 3 but it's a bit too much imho)
3 garlic cloves
4 tablespoons olive oil
a bit salt and loads of pepper (not sure of the translation here, red powder dried pepper (paprika) stuff)
Everything in the blender and go for it.
I hope I can build my planned vertical garden bed on Friday, I already organized some old pallets for wood but time is very sparse this week.
I'm not sure yet whether I'll move this account if sbc actually closes.
In either way, there's still my other account @tofuwabohu
I thought about moving that one too since a while but I'll wait until things settle down at least.
In either case I really enjoyed being a part of sbc even if it was for a few months only. Let's see what the future holds for us.
With Solarpunk action week 2020 almost here I thought it would be a good time to give a primer on how to make seedbombs.
I always seem to do my #sundiy on Saturdays. More time and energy I guess.
I built a coldframe! It's like a tiny greenhouse for growing greens in the winter. It's not quite done because I don't have any hinges or money to buy them. But it's built entirely out of salvaged materials so far. Pallet wood and an old window. Even the nails all came from the pallet.
SBC meta - budget/cashflow
I've just uploaded info about the state of our finances, including a projected budget/cashflow for 2020-21, here: https://sunbeamcity.autonomic.zone/t/what-can-we-afford-financially-as-a-co-op/28/12
If you want to comment about this, please do this within Discourse, not on here (so we can manage/see everyone's comments more easily)

The candidate the account represents is all about addressing overpopulation. (That's a dogwhistle for eugenics. If a friend wants to explain that in reply that'd be welcome; I'm busy prepping dinner.)

SBC meta, discourse call
I want to urge everyone on SBC to register on the new discourse and participate. Shit is important.
You just might be an ecofascist with genocidal tendencies if:
- You focus on other groups' environmental footprints while ignoring your own
- You think "overpopulation" is the problem and not overconsumption
- You seize on the environmental silver lining in large-scale human suffering and deaths
- Your environmentalism focuses on there being fewer people, who just happen to be the "wrong" kinds of people, instead of systemic changes that pursue both sustainability and human flourishing.
SBC, offering new discussion platform
So we're having problems with Loomio but we need to have a big discussion including others that are not on Sunbeam. Mastodon is really not the place for this longer term work it seems.
My tech co-op will happily host a Discourse (https://www.discourse.org/) server for the Sunbeam community for free. There are also polls for voting on stuff on there.
Happy to make anyone mod or admin who wants it.
Is everyone ok with trying that out?

Here's a small sampling of comments about the Canadian invasion of Wet'suwet'en territory from colonial Canadians, from one forum.
@OCRbot might be able to caption this properly, otherwise I'll come back later and add it myself
depol: right-wing terror, death
A shooter killed 9 people in 2 shisha bars last night in the Hessian city #Hanau. The police later found his body, alongside with the body of his mother. In a video, the shooter claimed responsibility and uttered right-wing positions.
Only last weekend, a right-wing terror cell of 12 people has been uncovered.
I am devastated. We, as white Germans, need to call this by its name: Terrorism! And we need to stand with our Muslim, Jewish, and PoC fellow citizens!
On this account I think I'll focus on sustainability and linked topics. There's more info in my introduction toot.
