Often when we discuss Solarpunk, particularly as an aesthetic, we tend to focus on lush, green forests and fields. As somebody who grew up in either swampland or desert/Chaparral regions, I tend to view the former vision as a bit...narrow. To me, the powerful vision of Solarpunk is one in which we are united with the diverse Eco-systems of our planet, which can include regions not traditionally thought of or considered.

Update on the local Seed Library (see previous posts in this thread for background)!

We've got official approval to start building it out!

We'll start the official planning, building, and then community awareness initiatives and concurrent programming and training!

Yay free seeds for the town!

Yay free classes on gardening and hydroponics!

Gardening is one thing. Community is another thing entirely.

Build community. Feed each other.

Great news! My library got back to me!

They're interested in building out a seed library as well!!!


I'm developing some basic classes on how to do low-budget, simple, indoor (in any space) hydroponics. I'm also building out some starter kits to give away.

I'll see if the local library would like me to give these courses and kits when the seed library gets built as a way to promote it and get word out to the local community.

Alright, sent an email to the head of my local library about setting up a seed library there.

Seeds libraries are places you can go and "check out" seeds. Grow the seeds. Let one of the grown plants go to seed. Harvest the seeds. Then "return" the seeds back to the seed library!

Free seeds!!!!

Check and see if you have a seed library near you:

Or connect and share seeds with folks online:

My local library built the seed library!

The local Master Gardeners provided a lot of the intitial seeds (oh my gosh we are stocked!!!). They used an old card catalogue to store them. Today's the kickoff!

The idea is you "check out seeds" from the library, plant/grow/harvest, let some go to seed, then "return the seeds" back to the library!

Free seeds for everyone!

Went out and distributed food to our neighbors at the food pantry tonight.

We had enough left over afterwards to stock up the community pantry & free fridge.

We ran out of room. So I took boxes of fresh turnips and boxes of cereal home for storage. I'll push them out to the community fridge and pantry this week as there is room.

We have the literal ability to feed everyone for free. And we can. And we are.

How to Build a Small Solar Power System - #lowtechmagazine just released an extensive, accessible, beginner friendly guide on solar system, small scale!

Happy to have contributed illlustrations, pictures and feedback to this new article. It will be a great base for upcoming workshops and prototypes.

Short text showing how peaceful life could be if we could just get rid of capitalism.

Un court texte qui montre comment la vie pourrait être paisible si on se débarrasse du capitalisme.

I thought I’d kick my feed off with an #introduction 😊

Hi! I’m Isabel, a next-gen #scicommer, #cyberneticist and #podcaster based at the #AustralianNationalUniversity ☀️

My research interests include #science in #popculture (particularly #solarpunk), the #cultural meanings of science, and the relationships between people, the natural #environment, and #technology 👩‍🔬🤖

I also co-host #Sci_Burst, a science in pop culture podcast, which you can learn more about here:

This show in which I worked on conceptual art and worldbuilding, will premiere on October 19.

Between the #solar panels and the battery, I've enough electricity to run the #airfryer for my lunch.

Is this #SolarPunk?

#solar vagabond. My posts are now outdated the issue you need is a panel with a "real USB-C PD" rather than just normal USB with a C socket and no PD, then you need to find a battery bank with "power pass-through" and 2 USB-C PD sockets - this is the hard part. And yes you can do it with normal 2amp 5v USB, but his will be battery assist more than power. It will work'ish but lead to premature battery wear all round.


This is a comic strip I've been running on Tumblr. I can run it here, if anyone is interested.

I recently watched Strange World, largely because the animation looked interesting. However, I was extremely pleasantly surprised by the optimistic and surprisingly radical #solarpunk and #degrowth themes.

Pop Culture Detective regularly has good video essays, and their essay on this one is no different:

A fantastic video by an incredibly inventive farmer who's built out a bespoke waste timber-to-biochar system, including a push-powered field railway and giant handmade flywheel.

So, @rek and I got super interested in these vacuum tubes that people put on their rooftops.

We've just cooked our first meal with the sun, and are still a bit shocked at how well it worked out. It's pretty cool out today, it was able to cook potatoes thoroughly in an hour.

#solarpunk cooking

In the #UK it's not always sunny enough for one of these to be useful, but I've hooked mine up to a #DIY #battery pack—made of #recycled #liions—and while it's basically useless on a cloudy or rainy day, it actually provides a meaningful amount of power on a sunny day.

This would never work as a commercial product because, if these components were all brand new, it wouldn't make any economic sense.

That's the beauty of #solarpunk #diyelectronics and #recycling! It brings a whole new life to these reclaimed panels and cells!

Hello, everyone! As many folks from Tumblr are moving here, I figured I might as well. For the many who don't know me here, here's an introduction post.

For those wondering about the second part of the username, agorism is a left-wing, anticapitalist form of market anarchism similar in style to mutualism that focuses more heavily on using the counter-economy (any voluntary activity the state does not approve of) to demolish the state. Both black/gray markets and mutual aid are part of this.

So while you'll find the regular solarpunk stuff from my blog, you'll also occasionally see me suggesting things like a fully decentralized hydro-powered mutual crypto-credit system.

Though I'm well aware my views are odd compared to the average solarpunk, I'm happy to vibe with a crew of a similar mind! Thanks for having me!

As we agorists say:
Agora! Anarchy! Action!

hi, patch commissions are open! i can do either hand-drawn fabric paint on black, white, or off-white fabric, or i can do embroidery - either normal embroidery, or cross stitch, on various fabrics or colors of aida fabric.
