I also need to decide wHether I'm tired or very tired.

I just picked up an EUR pallet, that my father-in-law had in excess at his workplace.
Now we just need to decide wether we make another high-bed / plant-box or do something else with it.

Take me down to where the grass is green and the sunlight powers our technology.

I've seen a few people here and elsewhere talk about zines. I have a basic grasp of what that is, but I'm curious about how y'all have used zines.

What's the format?
What did you write?
How did you distribute?
And not least _why_ did you do it?

I didn't get around to post pictures from our building, filling and planting of/in the new EUR-pallet mini garden.

But we did it all yesterday, and I did take a few good pictures along the way. The last few days have just been so busy.

Some point in the near future, I'd like to start some kind of comprehensive resource list or directory of info, tools, and organisations that can help a person translate discussion and theory into direct action in their community. A wiki perhaps? Not sure. Does such a thing already exist?

In conclusion: Staying alive is solarpunk as fuck.

So stay punk as fuck, and solar to the molar*!

(* Possibly dorky parallel to "armed to the teeth", but fewer weapons and more greens)

Importantly, solarpunk can't loose.

Solarpunk can only win or give up fighting.

In other ways, they're exactly the same.

Solarpunk is what happens when the cybrepunks win.

Cybrepunk is what happens when the solarpunks stop fighting.

In some ways Solarpunk is the opposite of Cyberpunk.

If solarpunk is the sun, then cyberpunk is the moon (with a secret base built by a megacorporation)

If cyberpunk is dark, gritty streets in the slum, then solarpunk is bright rooftops (with plenty of community-owned solar cells and gardens)

Okay, since this is a recurring question (which I should have expected), I've updated sunbeam.city's about page with a link to a short description of what actually is, taking on board suggestions from the Fediverse:

solarpunk.sunbeam.city/

I really hope this instance grows big (500+?), because I really want to see a lot more people talk about solarpunk and solarpunk-adjacent ideas.

We got the last part for our garden project today. Now we just need to fill the box with dirt and get some plants to put in said dirt.

I already have a red onion in a closet, that's halfway to flowering already. Will try planting it and see what happens.

I should take a walk and snap some pictures in our local community project, . It's quite large for a project of that size, and very fascinating.

(Danish page about the project: kanalbyen.dk/byliv/grow-your-c )

I have a four-day weekend this week, so hopefully we can find time to gather the materials then and get started.

First step of what I will from now on call my is to build a raised bed / "plant-box" primarily for food producing plants.

For the last few years I've had a growing obsession with growing my own onions and leeks (Alliums are the best vegetables), but I think we'll start simpler. Probably tomatoes and bellpeppers. Maybe cucumbers?

We currently only have a tiny mostly-tiled garden, and that's why we're going for a raised bed (built from EUR-pallets and matching sides).

@cocoron do you plan to give this instance a custom favicon?
No pressure from me either way, just curious :)

Hello Sunbeam!

I'm here because I think might show us the way to a bright future (Pun Intented).
