Here's your chance...
I am quite happy to bring this information to the permaculture community in and around the St. Louis area. I've been contacted recently by a representative of The Conlin Company, the production company responsible for casting FOX's new and upcoming TV reality show "Utopia." I was asked to pass along the information regarding the casting of the show as they are interested in casting individuals with a background in permaculture which, again, I am pleased to do.
Here is an excerpt from the message I received describing what they are looking for...
"We are taking a group of 15 people, selected from across the country, and filming them for a year, as they work together to create a new, ideal society. They will get to choose how they will live, what kind of rules they will have, how they will make money, and more.
We are going to be in St. Louis, April 27th - April 29th, interviewing people who want to audition for the series.
I want to find people who truly have a desire to put their ideas to work, to find out if their ideas for creating a new "Utopia" would work.
I am looking for all skills and backgrounds - everyone, including farmers, lawyers, doctors, artists, green and sustainable food growers, inventors, chefs, you name it! Basically, people who want to know if their ideas would work. If you had the chance to create your own ideal society, what would you do, and how would you do it and how would you teach others - that is what I am looking for.
I am contacting you because I am trying to reach out to people in the permaculture community. I thought you might be able to help put the word out."
More focus on permaculture ethics and principles in the mainstream has been sought after by permaculturists for so long now. Here is an opportunity to begin doing just that. I sincerely hope that many of you will take advantage of this opportunity. They will be at Earth Day in Forest Park interviewing those of you interested.
