It's great to see that so many people are hip to this idea, and thank
you for CC:ing me when you email Jerry. I'm resending this message to
encourage those who care about socioecoogical revitalization but have
not yet sent Jerry an email to do so when you have a spare moment. Of
all the political personalities in the US, Jerry Brown could probably
make a positive difference if he'd run with this idea.
I'm looking for some other positive people interested in the issue as
I've presented it below to contact Jerry Brown and advocate trying an
initially symbolic acorn-based local currency in the city of Oakland
where he's running for mayor. Some currencies have been based on gold or
seashells. I'm recommending acorns, enhancing the possibility for
greater appreciation of trees. I've emailed him three times with no
response. Since Jerry is a politician, and the voices of more than one
person really make a difference, perhaps you can be helpful in carrying
this medicine...er..I mean MESSAGE.
The email addresses I have for Jerry Brown are
email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org (but maybe someone knows of better
ones). I recommend the SUBJECT title: "ACORNS JERRY!"
and I also ask you to CC: email@example.com
so I know other people care.
Thank you in peace,
I'm the guy who spoke with you briefly at the EcoFarm conference about a
local currency for Oakland based upon acorns.
Think about it: Oak-Land...Acorns...Food...Native
As Oaklanders plant and care for more oaks, they experience a higher
quality of life and acorns are then actually used as currency for
selected purposes. People can also be taught how to use them as food.
It's an awareness thing represented by tangible ecological resources,
cultivating community pride and spirit of place. All very positive.
It's a gentle demonstration of local resourcefulness and respect, so
don't worry about it interfering with the military industrial complex's
manipulation of international currencies to plunder global ecological
resources. Remember, we're just talking about Oak-land for now.
California comes later.
I'm willing to help you with this as a campaign talking point, and I'm
sure many people in the Bay Area would as well. I am experienced with
the use of local currency in Berkeley ("BREAD") and Santa Barbara (SB
Hours). I develop Ecological Agriculture programs including a two week
residential Permaculture Design Course beginning Summer Solstice, June
21, in San Luis Obispo, and have voted for you for President.
If nothing else, Oakland Acorns will raise the awareness of locals to
the importance of trees, ecology, and indigenous history of the
bioregion. And most importantly it will be GOOD NATURED FUN positioning
you on the leading edge of the local currency groundswell in this
nation. Native plant people in the Bay Area tend to be well-to-do and
politically supportive of those advocating care of native plants.
I believe this can earn you the interest of many voters.
Remember: Oak-Land...Acorns...Wealth...Health...Indigenous Connection
