I am not two months reading here on permie but yet I can tell that I know more than he does. Why because I am learning directly from people who are at the cutting edge and people who are actually doing it This should be the kind of school we must have. A school of people for the people and by the people. formal education is an insanity in comparison to permie school.

I sometimes dream of having a sailing ship, or sometimes a heavy-lift cargo airship, that would carry a hardcore technical permaculture school, travelling to places it's needed, dropping the seed of permacultural civilisation in the way that organisations today have floating aid hospitals and the like, providing not just aid, but a plan forward for each individual on how to better enable themselves, both to build or rebuild, and to help feed people and the earth.
Imagine being on such a vessel.

I love the idea of a Permie ship, every time a cargo ship/crew is left adrift at sea by a corporation, I have wished there was a way little people to band together and take possession of it.
A traveling seed bank/library/ machine shop/wood shop/power plant could get a lot done.
Equip it with designs from https://www.opensourceecology.org/
Maybe sailing vessels with one last trip left in them, or a vessel build to be dismantled and reused at the other end would be the way to go.
