 Episode-1241- The Possibilities of Abundance in Spite of Modern Self Destruction | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:18:26

TweetToday I am going to talk about permacutlure from an entirely different angle then I have in the past.  What I mean is the concept that really makes permaculture brilliant isn’t swales, food forests and biogas energy.  No it is the concept that we can do the following… Take responsibility for our own existence and that of our children and do so while not harming others, not harming natural systems and generate sufficient surplus for it to work. That of course is taking the prime directive of permaculture and the three ethics and making one goal oriented sentence out of them.  I would ask you this though, as a modern survivalist, is that not exactly what we should all be working for. Notice the above says nothing about growing plants, digging ditches, raising chickens or planting gardens.  Notice also there is nothing political about it, it is all about self responsibility, self governance and self directed decisions.  It begins with two words, “take responsibility” and once spoken those words leave no room to blame others, call on a government to fix a problem or sit around and hope that things get better. Join Me Today to Discuss… The ethics and directive as a life philosophy, what is it closest to? Why people don’t understand permaculture, it doesn’t “fit” our way of thinking Why growing food is what permaculture is most known for, but perhaps should not be How much wealth is in a swale, how much in a tree or a pond Why we need to understand that all wealth originates from natural systems What is the real value of an hour of human labor Why permaculture values off grid living so highly, security! Lack of systemic dependence Requires the creation of redundancy Eliminates huge amounts of interference Results in a “balanced” system What does it mean if permaculture isn’t possible?

She’s also the business owner of Cold Antler Farm, an educational homestead where people travel from all over the world to take classes in everything from beginner fiddle to herbalism.

 Episode-1236- Plans for the TSP Homestead and Upcoming Workshops | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:15:54

TweetI am going to continue with some fun stuff that is informative and not so deep into the world of politics, economics, etc.  Today I am going to line out the planned projects for our 3 acre property and what they will be doing for us long term. The first principle of permaculture in my mind is “observe and interact” and while interact is part of it, to me on a new property about a year of observation is really ideal for the planning process.  At this point I have been on my property for about 10 months.  I now know it intimately.  I know where the winds blow including when they don’t line up with the “official information” from the weather service. I know where my soils are a foot deep and where they are only a few inches above the limestone reef that is under this part of north Texas.  I know where water flows and where it pools.  I know the species that do well here on their own in all seasons.  I  have seen the results of my work with my animals an I know it works.  Islands of deep green now exist in pastures that are tired and mostly brown. I have had the great fortune to have my intern Josiah Wallingford of Bring of Freedom on property now for 3 months to aid in my planning.  We now have a much deeper understanding of many of our subtle contours.  Then we did an urban design workshop.  30 students received certification in Urban Design and we got amazing ideas for a small space design on the property.  Josiah and I have expanded these plans and it is all coming together.  Today I will do my best to explain our future plans and how this homestead is going to be transformed over the next year into a holistic system that is self supporting and will generate its own fertility. Join Me Today As We Discuss… The tactical greenhouse with a “climate battery” 6000-7500 gallons of catchment tanks are going in, just for starters Why we will use some pumps in our systems, yet we will not “need” them Taking swales to an extreme level even on land anyone would call flat Road catchment diversion, more water then we could ever need Cell grazing of geese and chickens in our system, perhaps sheep next year Building a 60,000 gallon pond where you can’t go below grade and making it self sustaining Making hugul swales where we can only dig about 2 inches into the soil Building top soil at a massive rate in the interswales Berms, berms and more berms A food forest going in this spring, 40 productive trees, 280 support trees The contour beds are due to become a massive “micro food forest” This is just the beginning!

 Episode-1235- Fun, Cheap and Easy Gun Projects and Tricks | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:30:40

TweetBuild Your Own M1 Dummy Mag for the 10/22 Okay guys and gals, October has kicked my butt.  First 10 days in Colorado, then the seminar at my homestead, then the earthworks course in Louisiana.  I need a fun and easy show and I bet with all the crap going on with the government, the economy and other things many of you do too. Today I am going to discuss some cool gun projects you can do and exactly how to do them.  None require any advanced gunsmithing knowledge or master wood working skills to do. We will also discuss some cool and easy to install accessories and where to get them and why they are actually worth having.  A little bit on reloading, including my special 44 Mag “quiet load” and even a tiny bit of airsoft shooting. This should be a fun show, it won’t be a 100% how to show but it will give you a ton of fun projects, let you know what is possible and get you thinking.  It may also give you a few projects for those long winter nights when many of us get a bit of cabin fever in January and February.  It sounds crazy but those days are just around the corner.

 Episode-1230- Permaculture Q&A with Nick Burtner, Josiah Wallingford and Jack Spirko | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:22:53

TweetToday’s show is 100% commercial free and the show notes are quite brief.  This is a live Q&A session with myself, Nicholas Burtner and Josiah Wallingford and 32 students at the workshop we are doing right now. There were complaints about the audio, so I remasterd it and it should be easier to hear.  We are doing our best here folks. Likes(37)Dislikes(30)
