Michael Judd says that if permies.com brings in $5000 to his kickstarter, then permies.com can decorate an entire page in his new book!
I'm not sure what we would put there just yet, but the opportunities for comedy are endless!

question for Geoff:

a few times i have heard you mention a family (ex military divers) that was providing their own food with ~12 hours of work per week, while raising 3 kids.
can you give anymore info on this system? what region? what systems were used? i remember you mentioning a diary cow, and that the system was setup similar to a hunter/gatherer system, but i would love more details.

i think a video showing that it is possible to provide a family of 5 with a large majority of your own food without working 60+ hours on a farm would go a long way to getting permaculture into more peoples minds.

i think this would stress something i also heard you say in the past, which is: most people do not know they can solve all their supply line needs in a garden, and not knowing this makes a lot of people insecure.

thanks in advance,
Everybody's invited. Even this tiny ad:
