I just dropped the price of
the permaculture playing cards
for a wee bit.

 

 

uses include:
- infecting brains with permaculture
- convincing folks that you are not crazy
- gift giving obligations
- stocking stuffer
- gambling distraction
- an hour or two of reading
- find the needle
- find the 26 hidden names

Hello Matt. Not much to go on, but can I presume that biomass is the topic? If so, then I expect the discussion should center on various sources for biomass and how to efficiently combust this fuel source and put the heat to use... some examples include direct space heating, water pasteurization, water distillation, water heating, space cooling with absorption cycle, desiccant regeneration for air drying or desiccant evaporative cooling, external combustion engines, cogeneration, and many others. There is also biomass gasification for fueling internal combustion engines, or methane generation (i.e. "biogas") from biomass - I admit to not being particularly fond of this latter technology.

... there is also small scale steam power.

Yeah and biologs trying to buy a biomass compactor from this guy rusty Ashby, one sides a log splitter the other uses the force of the splitter to make biomass logs, wood heat is good heat in my book

I wasn't familiar with Rusty Ashby's leaf compactor before reading this post. Seems like an awful waste of good leaves to me. You'd be much better off composting those leaves and burning actual wood in your fireplace. I suppose if you have the spare $3000 it wouldn't hurt anything, other than the trees that will be missing the mulch that they worked all summer to make.

Well Jeff,
Think about the mega fires we have in the rockys due to enormus amounts of brush, or grass clippings, resources are resources, you should use peach pits, peanut husks, biomass so it has many different feedstocks to turn into fuel

That way you don't take too much from any ecosystem, even though people bag up their leaves every year just to put them on the side of the road for garbage pick up
