about

Permaculture principle 8: Integrate rather than Segregate - Work in cooperation rather than competition. Hook up with someone. Befriend your neighbours. Companion plant. Get involved in the community!

lyrics

I see you there, on your own
And I don’t know what you’re doing all alone
There’s not enough time in this life
To be wrapped up in your own thing, just doing your own thing.
wrapped up in your own thing, thinking bout your own thing.

I‘ve got an idea of things to do
But they’d be ten times better if I did them with you
Come over here, we’ll make it happen
With some inspirational collaboration

Lets get together.

All my people in the neighbourhood
You’ve lived here so long, what’s going on?
Don’t even know your names, or what you do.
But with a little bit of effort, we could make community.
With a little bit of effort, we could make community

Lets get together.
Lets get together.

One and one
makes more than two functions
we need to make the connection
shed the illusion of separation

Everyone living on this land
We could make light work if we give each other a hand
Doesn’t matter where you’re from
Or who you are
We need some integration, no more segregation
Yeah. we need some integration, no more segregation.

Let’s get together.

about

Formidable Vegetable Sound System Fremantle, Australia

Experimental ‘ecological edutainment’ based around the principles of permaculture (a neat way to fix the world) mashing together ukulele with some electro-funk-swing, climate-change reggae, post-apocalypso and a decent serving of 'Radish Beets'.
