I watch a lot of channels that are listed here mostly for enjoyment.  The one channel I have got the most out of is the gardening channel One Yard Revolution OYR.  The channel is full of knowledge on gardening and soil health on a budget.  I recommend people give it a shot.

Richard Perkins is doing amazing things in Sweden. If you are interested in a permaculture farming business I don't know of anybody better in Europe to learn from.

I also found John suscovich's journey really interesting and inspriring

I didn't see She Is Of The Woods https://www.youtube.com/user/ColdCreekHomestead/featured

She does some great PNW wild foraging and off grid herbalism. Wonderful info filled videos on this wonderful lady's channel that can really help folks find nature's medicine cabinet around them. While based in NE Oregon plenty of the plants discussed can be found in other regions.

    Didn't see Gary Pilarchik/The Rusted Garden mentioned.  He has nearly 800 videos up with over 100k subscribers so it is a pretty popular channel.

    He is my "go to" gardening guru when I want info on starting/growing specific plants, specifics on budget grow lights,  homemade remedies for diseases/pests, differences between fertilizers etc...  His videos are very concise and well researched.

    I am on a road trip and would love to stop by the James Prigioni Food Forest.  Does anyone know how to contact him for that?  I want to take some family members by that live near there so I can SHOW them what it looks like and not just talk about it.

    Are there any channels around that focus on dry climates? Something like greening the desert.

    Or in a mediterrean climate with little or no rainfall during summer. That presents different challenges than what people in areas with lots of water experience.

    I have been watching a lot of Alec Steele lately, I love watching people forge things by hand! He's quite cinematic about it in some videos too. Someone earlier mentioned torbjorn, he's a really good blacksmith youtuber as well.

    Watching his videos has made me want to forge myself. I built myself a humble little Hole Forge. Unlike the guy in that video, I used hardwood charcoal instead of wood and I used a black pipe as a tuyere as it's cheap and I wanted to avoid galvanized material. I bought a swedish style blacksmith hammer because I'm a spazz and used a 2" x 2" piece of steel stock on a platform as an anvil (it's hard to work with, but way cheaper than a real anvil and I still have a fullering edge.)

    It's a lot of fun, way more fun than I thought it would be and I was pretty optimistic to begin with. I like making my own tools, I just wish steel was cheaper...I don't like scavenging.

    I havent watched YouTube in months.  When I do, it is to try to find information on a specific issue.
     
    What are your superhero powers? Go ahead and try them on this tiny ad:
