Joe PolaischerFebruary 14, 2008
I’ve just received word via email that Joe Polaischer died yesterday. Joe was a great advocate of Permaculture and preparation for energy descent. Decades before most of us worked out that sustainability was important Joe and his partner Trish were out there showing how it could be done with their work at Rainbow Valley Farm.
He was such a passionate and energetic character I find it hard to believe he could go so suddenly. He will be missed by so many.
actually, that link goes to his talk from the 2005 Ecoshow that I recorded. The radio interview is here.
The text of the email reads:
We’re sorry to have to let you know that Joe Polaischer of Rainbow
Valley farm died yesterday, at the farm.
Joe’s funeral will be on SATURDAY 16TH FEB at 2.00pm, at the Matakana
Pony Club on Matakana Valley Rd. There will be a gathering after the
burial at the Matakana Hall. Please bring a plate and a bottle.
Rest in peace Joe.
