 Episode-1079- Jim Navarro on Hackerspaces and Makerspaces | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:23:50

TweetJim Navarro is a founder and Director of the board of Bridgewire Makerspace in Reno/Sparks NV.   His group is a community workshop that is member driven and is a non profit.  They have been around for 18 months and are growing daily. He joins us to explain the fundamental of the process they used in setting up their workshop and the hurdles along the way.  Plus how they run it during day to day ongoing operations. Professionally Jim is the Director of Security for one of the Forbes 400 and an NFA consultant and Armorer for a title 2 manufacturer in Reno.  Which Jim calls his “fun hobby job”. Today we discuss how to start a makerspace/hackerspace/community workshop.   The hurdles the problems and the positive results.   Then after how to run them and handle problems including why anyone should do this in the first place. We also discuss the entrepreneual spirit within the Makerspace community and how combined with systems like Kickstarter it is chaining the playing field for small businesses in America today.  Why be in hock to a venture capitalists (I call them vulture capitalists) when you can be privately funded by people that support your mission?  Why spend a fortune on prototyping when you can join a community, spend a few hundred dollars on some classes and dues and produce it yourself?  Heck why spend a fortune in bank loans for initial production equipment when you can ramp up using community based equipment?

 Episode-1075- Jim Phillips on Cold Weather Survival | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:07:27

TweetJim Phillips Joins us to Discuss Cold Weather Survival. Jim Phillips is a nationally known speaker and teacher who has professionally taught thousands of classes all across the United States for 40 years. For a number of years prior to this career, his hobby was teaching cold weather safety & survival. Jim is a strong advocate of self-reliant living and family preparedness.  He developed an entire preparedness curriculum by asking himself the question “What if?” and then setting out to discover what actually does and does not work. The answers he seeks (and then teaches) must be based on true principles derived from firsthand experience.  Above all else, Jim believes that attitude and practical knowledge are more critical to survival than having a bunch of “stuff.” He is known for saying… “Who you are and what you know are far more important than what you have.” He encourages his students to develop a powerful positive purpose and mission to focus on in order to carry them through the serious challenges of life.  He was also referred to me by expert council member and friend of TSP Steven Harris. Join Us Today As We Discuss… Why cold weather survival requires more then coats and typical cold weather clothing Why layering can actually be a bad idea in spite of conventional wisdom Why Jim is not a fan of wool again contrary to conventional wisdom Jim’s “cold weather doctrine system” How people can survive at sub zero temps with no shelter or heating Can waterproofing kill you in the cold Why so called water proof  and breathable clothing is in Jim’s view a myth Jim’s unique approach to cold weather survival in summary Resources for Today’s Show… Members Support Brigade 13Skills.com Join Our Forum TSP Mint TSP Gear Back Yard Food Production – (sponsor of the day) Fortress Defense Consultants – (sponsor of the day) Jim’s Liinks Jim’s Full Bio ThermalJohns Freezer Test A Winter Without Worries Experience The PALS History Preparedness that Works Get Excited About Preparedness For the Sake of Others Remember to comment, chime in and tell us your thoughts, this podcast is one man’s opinion, not a lecture or sermon.

 Episode-1074- Contour Gardening and Woody Beds | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:07:57

TweetAs many of you know I have suggested that we call what most (not all) people are doing in America woody beds vs hugulkultur.  I suggest this for two reasons. 1.  People who don’t know about it already understand “woody bed” but look at you like you have a snake crawling out of your ear when you say hugulkultur. 2.  It is more accurate, hugul in the term hugulkultur pretty much means high as in high bed.  As in 1.5-2 yards high.  This is simply not what we are doing in America in most instances. Since first learning about the entire concept from Paul Wheaton (as practiced by Sepp Holzer) I have worked with it in many different formats, from 6 foot high true huguls to in ground versions that appear like any typical framed in raised bed.  I have also studied the work of Permaculture visionary Geoff Lawton and become a huge fan of his swale based design systems. As I continued both studying the work of others and putting it into actual field level work (I can’t stress how important that is) I have also learned how Geoff takes “swale like design” into raised bed gardening.   I have now found that taking the disciplines of swale style raised beds and adding wood core design to the mix is an incredibly efficient design structure. Today I discuss the primary design structures of this type of system, why they work and what limitations each has.  From there we can see how a proper integration of all of them makes up a great deal for where each has certain weaknesses. Join Me Today As I Discuss… What is a swale and why does it work What is the difference between a “swale like” structure and a true swale How can contour paths act like swales when they are not below grade Does it make sense to cut paths below grade (may be, it depends) What is traditional hugulkultur Why did Sepp Holzer and other actually bury wood in the first place The limits of a “spongy core” based on mathematics as a simply reservior What are mycelium and what role do they play in permaculture How does the internal composting action protect roots in cold weather Why isn’t the heat a danger in hot weather Why deep mulching is a must How you can practice polyculture, clumpy polyculture or even row mono culture How does a contour based wood core system function end to end Info on the upcoming workshop that will teach these techniques Videos Of the Described Project – Direct Links to Youtube in the Resource List Below Resources for today’s show… Members Support Brigade TSPMint.com 13Skills.com Join Our Forum TSP Gear Shop JM Bullion – (sponsor of the day) Survival Gear Bags – (sponsor of the day) Contour Lines and New Hugul Beds (woody beds) – Part One Contour Lines and New Hugul Beds (woody beds) – Part Two Remember to comment, chime in and tell us your thoughts, this podcast is one man’s opinion, not a lecture or sermon.

 Episode-1071- Raising Quail for Eggs and Meat with MoonvalleyPrepper | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:30:15

TweetCoturnix Quail Eggs with a Chicken Egg for Scale. MonvalleyPrepper (aka Brad Davies) is a long time member of the TSP audience and community.  A few months ago he chimed in on a comments thread  here at the TSP Blog about raising quail  When I heard the shear volume of production in such a tiny foot print I knew I had to get him on the air. It got better though!  Next, I heard he lived in the suburbs, had neighbors on either side.  That inspire of that he was able to produce in the range of 20,000 eggs a year and hundreds of meat animals.  Now get this his neighbors didn’t even know they were there! Once I heard all that I knew how important this could be for other preppers.  I also realized it might be a solution for many of our members that want to homestead in the city or the burbs and not call down the wrath of code enforcement officials or blue hairs running the local HOA. Join Us Today As We Discuss… The basic process from start to finish Setting up housing and equipment Getting incubation of your eggs right Inputs and outputs of the system Specific suburban issues to consider Using quail tractors or going large scale Breeding to improve stock and culling to curb undesirable traits Avoiding common getting started/first season mistake Some specific equipment and feed recomendations Additional Resources for Today’s Show Members Support Brigade TSP Gear Shop Join Our Forum Knife Kits – (sponsor of the day) Backwoods Home Magazine – (sponsor of the day) Bird Specific Resources for Today’s Show Photos of Brad’s Operation on Flickr WhiteQuail.com Quail Place Forum Back Yard Chickens Quail Specific Board Micro Livestock Book – Covers Quail Free Online Version Water cups Brad Uses Quail Egg Cutters Remember to comment, chime in and tell us your thoughts, this podcast is one man’s opinion, not a lecture or sermon.

 Episode-1069- Unusual and Everyday Plants for Food Hedges (Fedges) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:23:10

TweetHedge laying is an ancient practice and at one time many “productive plants” were part of the plant.  Sometimes this was done with fruit tree grafted together, hazelnuts or even old cottage roses that provided thorns and huge hips as a crop.  Other times the “productivity” took on a different bent like using willow and gaining material for weaving or making charcoal (specifically artist charcoal). Hedges were seen as a permanent fence that required only a little maintenance and largely took care of themselves.  In the 1600s one didn’t run down to Home Depot and order delivery of say 25 6 foot tall, 8 food wide cedar fence panels and some posts if they needed two hundred feet of fencing.  They established a hedge.  This hedge would serve their great grandchildren and feed both the family and animals during all those generations. In this modern era a hedge has become a bunch of unproductive “Red Tips”, the grow fast and hide the busy street or block out your neighbors but they tend to just die one day (usually at 6-12 years of age) and then you  have to cut them down and start over.  They provide nothing but a requirement that you trim them and clean up after them.  There has to be a better way!  Today we discuss that. Join me today as we discuss… What is a hedge vs. a fedge Can you put layers into a hedge system Do hedges have to be continuous to be effective Why is a hedge a good idea even if you have a fence How to select plants for your hedge system 14 Forgotten or Unusual Plants for Fedge Systems Chilean and Pineapple Guava Filberts Nanking Cherry Goumi Medlar Mulberry Pomegranate Roses Sea Berries Aronia Currants Elderberries Goji Berry Gooseberries Old standbys that make great fedges Blueberry Blackberry Raspberry Semi Dwarf Fruit Trees Chinese Chestnut Thoughts on some unique ideas Food forests with a fedge as the herbaceous layer A food forest system of multitiered fedges Hugulkulture based fedge systems Managing animals in hedge/fedge systems The fedge based paddock system (padfeging?)
