 Episode-1251- Food Forest Questions and Answers – Part One | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:40:45

TweetLast week I did a show called Food Forestry and How it Actually Works.  If you didn’t listen to it you, you might want to do so before listening to this show.   The reason being is that this show is a direct result of questions that I asked the audience to send me at the end of that show.  Hence much of what was covered there I will be assuming you have already heard today. The reality is a food forest is both simple and quite complex at the same time.  The complexity is based on the system that develops, the massive numbers of interrelationships and the fungal networks, guilds, etc that are formed. However, nature does that, on our end it is really simple. Plan for sufficient irrigation or drought proofing to get it off the ground Include plantings for the 7 layers of the system, focus on trees but not trees alone Provide diversity, if you plant 7 apples in a forest, plant 7 cultivars for example and many other trees like plumbs, peaches, cherries, persimmons, etc. Focus on what you can grow, not what you can’t grow Include a lot of support trees, chop and drop them heavily Let nature do most of the work In the end it is really that simple.  Here are where problems come up.  People look at the work done in Australia and focus on the fact that they use tropical and sub tropical plants.  WELL OF COURSE THEY DO, they are in the tropics and sub tropics.  If you are in cool temperate, just use species that do well there, etc. Let me be clear for every person that says, “my land is to steep” (generally it isn’t even close to too steep but if you have a cliff face, yea, you can’t make that work), someone else says, my land is too flat.  For every person that says they are in a cold climate, someone else says they are in a warm one and both see it as a problem.  Let me put it this way, if you live where trees grow, you can plant a food forest.  Now if you are in the tundra or on the salt flats of a desert, you have a problem, for the rest of you, trust nature and focus on what grows well where you are. Join Me Today As I Answer Your Questions Including… Back yard food forests in suburbia Dealing with eastern and western slopes Building a system with longevity beyond your own years Production from a forest beyond fruits and nuts Why your backyard is better than you think it is When guerrilla food forestry makes sense and when it doesn’t Forest concepts that support bees Why do we success out nitrogen fixing trees, do any remain in the final system How to make your tree planting more economical Determining your support tree to productive tree ratios Growing vine based crops in a food forest Conversion of existing polyculture orchards to more of a permaculture model Converting partially wooded lots from native to food forest systems Resources for today’s show… The Year 1251 Join Our Forum 13Skills.com Join Our Forum Walking To Freedom Get TSP Copper Sentinels TSP Gear PermaEthos.com Western Botanicals  – (sponsor of the day) Knife Kits – (sponsor of the day) 5 Acre Permaculture Farm in British Columbia My Write Up on the Food Forest Project at Permaculture Global – NOT YET COMPLETED Remember to comment, chime in and tell us your thoughts, this podcast is one man’s opinion, not a lecture or sermon.

 Episode-1248- Preservation of Meats with Ken Strayer | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:14:09

TweetSimple Beef Salami Made with Morton Tender Quick Today I want to discuss curing meats.  To do that we are joined by Ken Strayer a member of the TSP audience.  Ken has been curing meats for a few years and did a great job of answering my questions on the basics of curing meats. He was however, extremely efficient and his knowledge is limited to a few types of cured meats so the interview as only about 28 minutes long.  It was 28 extremely informative minutes but my shows are generally at least 50 minutes to an hour in length. So I am adding a bonus segment on the curing of meat via biltong method to the beginning of today’s show along with some stuff I picked up on simple quick “sausage style” cures.  Those might be some cool things you can do for the coming holidays. Also next week we will have The Farmstead Meatsmith on next week.  That will be a somewhat more advanced show.  So think of this show as part one of a two part series.  This will form the basis of your understanding of making cured meats, the basic process, etc. Ken is an awesome guy, he is a medically retired US veteran who served for 10 years in the United States Navy.  He is an avid outdoorsman who spend most of his free time backpacking and fly fishing throughout the North East.  He spends the rest of his time tending to his garden and small homestead, and cooking-and a hobbyist at smoking and curing meats of all types.  A listener of the show for about three years now, a supporter of liberty, and an Oathkeeper.

 Episode-1247- David Nash on 52 Prepper Projects | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:01:26

TweetPrepping Week by Week for a Year. Today David Nash of TNGun.com returns to TSP. David is a full time emergency manger by trade, and an advocate of self-reliance and personal preparedness by avocation. He is also instructor certified in a variety of topics such as firearms, terrorism response, WMD, and incident command. He’s written two books, and runs a DIY focused prepper website, based around his training business “The Shepherd School”. Today he joins us first to talk about prepping from a DIY standpoint. David feels prepping is full of $500 problems, but if you only have $50, you have to use other ways of making up the difference.  We also discuss David’s new book “52 Prepper Projects. We also discuss his recent experience in being filmed completing several projects by the producers of “Doomsday Preppers”.  It sounds like Nat Geo is at least getting it a little bit.  They seem to now be focusing more on “projects” rather then making preppers out to be full on loons.  Yet as you will hear, they are still baiting those that appear on the show, forcing them to say they are prepping for a specific event and creating nonsensical false drama in the show.

 Episode-1246- Food Forestry and How it Actually Works | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:20:34

TweetFrom Nov. 21st to Nov. 23rd this month we are running an earthworks workshop, I think we still have two spots by the way for anyone that wants to come.  You can find out about that here. During this workshop we are putting in the main frame earth works for about .75 acres of food forest.  That is just the beginning though.  Main planting will occur in the spring.  At that time about 40 long term productive trees, lots of bushes and shrubs, some climbers and about 280 support trees will be planted. I talk about food forests often and point to work by people like Geoff Lawton as to how they work and frankly to show that they work.  I do my best but I think many don’t really get the how and less get the why.  Today’s show is an attempt to communicate that better than I have in the past. To me this might be the ultimate survival strategy for mankind by the way.  There is nothing that we know of on planet earth with the productivity and sustainability of a forest.  A food forest is simply a guided version of that blueprint that nature has used since long before we existed. Join Me Today As I Discuss… My list of 40 productive trees for this one small project What is the 7 layer system, how does it function What is a support tree, why so many, what do they really do Why does a forest build soil faster than a prairie even one that is well managed How does man “accelerate a natural cycle” and why How do we then “slow down that same cycle” and why What needs can be met with a managed forest, more like what can’t How small can these systems really be, how large could they become Resources for today’s show… The Year 1245 The Year 1246 Join Our Forum 13Skills.com Join Our Forum Walking To Freedom Get TSP Copper Sentinels TSP Gear PermaEthos.com Sawtooth Tactical – (sponsor of the day) Ready Made Resources – (sponsor of the day) Remember to comment, chime in and tell us your thoughts, this podcast is one man’s opinion, not a lecture or sermon.

Additionally you will hear the song I co wrote with Gregg Yows, “What Have You Done“. You can get that entire so for free at Greg’s Website at www.revolutionrockandroll.com So tune in today for the story of Veteran’s Day, stories about our troops and the real reasons you should never miss a chance to say thank you to a veteran.   Likes(57)Dislikes(26)

 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?

TweetJenna Woginrich – Of The One Woman Farm Jenna Woginrich is an author, homesteader, archer, and falconer-in-training. Two summers ago she left her corporate office gig to focus on the farm full-time and now runs a 6.5 acre homestead by herself south of the Adirondacks in Washington County, NY. There she grows most of her own food; raises her own meat, dairy, veggies and eggs with the aid of animal power. Horses pull firewood from the forest, a sheepdog manages the livestock, hawks are trained to take small game, and carts and saddles are used as much as her dented pickup truck. She’s passionate about self-reliance, martial arts, hunting, tracking, horses, and traditional and country skills. 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. Her new book, One Woman Farm, has been described as follows by Joel Salatin, “Read this book to learn why farmsteads need to be loved.  Jenna’s One-Woman Farm is a jewel: small and lustrous.” Resources for today’s show… The Year 1238 Join Our Forum 13Skills.com Join Our Forum Walking To Freedom Shop for TSP Silver TSP Gear PermaEthos.com Knife Kits – (sponsor of the day) Back Woods Home Magazine – (sponsor of the day) Jenna’s Blog Jenna’s Book – The One-Woman Farm Remember to comment, chime in and tell us your thoughts, this podcast is one man’s opinion, not a lecture or sermon.
