Hello all, my wife and I have been lurkers here reading with much interest. We live on the Blood Reserve just north of you and would like to come visit one day. We were the first to live off grid here in a little straw bale home we built ourselves with our own resources and have a website/blog (www.thunderbirdfarms.ca) that will be detailing our transition to an integrated farm using aquaponics and permaculture in our goal of self sufficiency. I look forward to learning more from you all in the future..oh and I referenced the Duke of Permaculture and this website in my last blog post, I hope you don't mind.
Thanks, that's cool..I'm down for world domination too as long as it leaves me time for fishing...and hunting! The Blood Reserve is bordered by the Saint Mary's river to the south and the Belly River to the north and stretches from Lethbridge to almost the Rockies in the west. It is the largest reserve in Canada and we believe the principles involved in permaculture are totally in line with our cultural values and it is our plan to bring this to ours and other communities. Thanks for the warm welcome!
I don't know what I'd do if I didn't get my time by the water and in the woods. I'm sorry, I only know the most recent names of the larger geographic features but I think I've got a general of the area. I've never been the pictures and imagined vistas make it seem like a beautiful land.
I haven't done too much fishing and no appreciable hunting but I would like to do more of both. I look forward to you sharing your experiences and successes with those of us who aspire to learn.
