Some of you may have seen this already but Permaculture.co.uk just linked this article on Facebook. It's about a community in Belgium which thrives and survives by recycling or diverting other peoples' waste.

An inspiring tale of frugality!

Cool article. I liked the poultry tunnel idea. Especially timely for me as one of my turkey mommas stole the anothers babies and was headed across a corn field today with 20 babies. I don't care to see my investment heading off into the sunset. I might look into tunnels.
