So far everything I've looked at on that link applies to the Tropics. 

Anyone find any info not geared for the tropics?

All sorts of stuff in there.  I've seen some of the Appropriate Technology stuff, but never in this volume.  The whole thing can be downloaded, only 13 GB!  I'm connected at 1.5k bps so it will only take me...FOREVER to download it.  I'll be a month of rainy days going through it.

There is pertinent information on there.  There is a thread on this forum somewhere about salt build up in the soil.  This CD3 site has that covered.

This is information put together for 3rd world countries.  As a foundation of knowledge for a self-sufficient homestead it is invaluable.  Its like an instruction manual.

Thanks for the link, Whitlock.

That's good to know. 

I downloaded it hoping there was more covered than just the tropics.

Thanks

  If global warming turns out to be real (I'm still on the fence on that, although I do NOT believe that it's human-caused if it is real), maybe all that tropical information will be useful here, too!

theres several sets of directions for building a grain mill.
 
Why should I lose weight? They make bigger overalls. And they sure don't make overalls for tiny ads:
