Woa! This is a powerhouse of an online summit with tons of useful presentations from top geniuses in the biz on a variety of topics (yep, including head genius around here, Paul Wheaton!).



These online presentations will start on Halloween, October 31st, and run a week, and you can register right flippin' now, for FREE.

Register here.

Here's your lineup of presenters and what they'll be covering:

Paul Wheaton
rocket mass heaters: Addressing the Skepticism

geoff lawton
Greening the Desert

Hank Will
Versatile Corn Varieties For Homesteaders

Patricia Foreman
Chicken Whispering & Home Chicken Processing

Joel Salatin
Pastured Poultry Tips

Nathan Crane 
Grow Vibrant Food… In Just 1 Hour Per Day!

Brad Lancaster
Working With Natural Systems To Grow Abundance

Stacey Murphy
Garden Geeks Grow More

justin rhodes 
Predator ID:  Who Killed Your Chicken? & 10 Steps To Growing Most Of Your Food In Less Than 10 Hours Per Week

And about two dozen more presenters. This thing is about as information-packed as it gets. Top experts in all things homesteading and permaculture, covering a menagerie of topics - you may be sick to death of learning by the end of it

Paul's presentation is going to address some of the skepticism and criticism you hear on rocket mass heaters, and explains in great detail how and why they work as well as they do. I've seen it, and I can tell you, it's like all of Paul's stuff - funny, engaging, and no BS to the point. Definitely not to be missed.

I'm really excited to check out what the other presenters have in store for us, this is just a ton of information to have access to for free!

Get your thinking caps on, and get signed up now while it's free!

This looks great - I just signed up.  They want your first name and email address.  I can handle that.

I tried to sign up yesterday and it didn't work for me. Tried again tonight, same result. I put in my name and email then click on the button and the pop-up box goes white and then nothing. My internet connection is notoriously slow - could that be the problem? Tonight I let it sit there for 30 minutes and it still didn't work. Could it be insufficient bandwidth? It's so frustrating.

Did you get your "3 Free Gifts" Julia? I sent an email to Marjory Wildcraft's organization The Grow Network yesterday asking if there was some other way to register but haven't received an answer.

Am I the only one having this difficulty?

That's weird - I just signed up, and the sign up box went white for a few seconds, but then I was redirected to the thank you page with further instructions for attending the event.

Do you have a pop-up blocker active?  That might be getting in the way.

I don't have a pop-up blocker and I did disable the ad blocker. But I forgot about the trace blocker . . . that was the offending item.

Thanks for the help. I really wanted to get registered for this Summit!

I'm not incredibly tech savvy, but it sounds like maybe your IP address is on a spam blacklist? Try using a VPN to sign up and see if that works - I like TunnelBear VPN, they have a free service you can use.

I registered, I think all went wel, but I never received an e-mail to tell me I am registered. So I tried again. Again no reaction ... Maybe they do not send e-mails?

I don't think I ever got a confirmation email either - I'll ask Marjory's people today though if we were supposed to get one.

I tried again (must be the third or fourth time), the pop-up says I registered ... but still no e-mail. No free gifts neither
I hope so I am really registered (no problem if I am registered several times), I don't want to miss this summit!

Hey everyone - things are winding up for this summit, and we now have more detailed information on the presentations being offered.

Get the full schedule here.

Sign up for the summit here.

I'm not going to lie, I sign up for at least 3 of these things a month, and never make time to actually watch any of them. Making time for this one. I wanna learn how to make some buckskin clothing!

FYI, Paul will be presenting on day 6 of the summit!

Hi...I have been trying to register for the Homesteading Summit for several days as well.  I get the page that says I am registered, but have never received the welcome email.  I have emailed different places, and left a VM at the phone number I was given.

I just got an email from them that starts

Hi ,

I tried to send this to you on Friday…

… But maybe you noticed?

The Internet was REALLY unstable on Friday thanks to another massive cyber attack. It caused major Internet outages across the entire United States.

Even as I write this, I can see the attacks must be ongoing. My sources are showing massive outages on the East Coast.

But it’s only making me MORE determined to get this to you!

On Friday, we released the schedule for our upcoming Mother Earth News Homesteading Summit that’s set to kick off on Monday, October 31st.

Have you seen the schedule yet?

Because I’m hearing that some of you didn’t get it…

Hey guys, just a heads up - after this event is over, since there are so many awesome presentations featured in it, Mother Earth News and Marjory's team will actually be selling lifetime access to the videos, so you don't have to just watch them the one time and never be able to go back to them for reference.

So streaming during the event, totally free. Watching them over and over again, or at a time that's more convenient for you, there's a one time purchase to be made You can either get online access, or get online access + everything on a flash drive, delivered to your door!

If you've already signed up for this event, you should have gotten an email with all of this info in it - right now they're doing their early bird pricing on buying the downloads of the presentations, which will last right up until the Summit starts. After that, it'll be full price.

If you haven't yet signed up for this FREE online event, you can do so here.

Is there any way to contact the people running the contest right away?  According to the email I recieved it has an email address to respond to which I did but it was returned:

but it was rejected by the server for the recipient domain thegrownetwork.org by thegrownetwork.org. [185.72.157.5]


I wanted to talk with/contact someone right away because the email contest is missing some very key wording which could put it at odds with the FTC.

theres an option to pay to watch the videos now has anyone tried.  I wonder if these are teaser videos or if they actually cover the subjects completely.

The videos available with paid lifetime access (and early access) are not teasers. I have participated in a similar summit recently, with some of the same promoters, where I opted for lifetime access, and I can still see the full videos online through a members' portal.

Yep, if you pay for access, you get can get full online access or a flash drive with the videos delivered to you, rather than just having the 24 hour window to watch the presentations.

I'm still trying to get a hold of someone about that email contest both through email and calling them.  No response or the emails don't work.  I may have to try contacting Mother Earth News.

Thanks Destiny.  If they can contact me privately or by phone it would probably be better.  I can give that information to whoever needs it.

I am very impressed with today's talk called "Saving Seeds To Save Ourselves – Bill McDorman"!

It's about saving seeds.  It's about not being traped in the doctrine of purity.  It's about food freedom.  I love it!

Well done!

Could not agree more. Liberating information. More of a realignment of views, and a pressure release than a "how-to" video. To anyone who even has a passing interest in seed saving, it's simply a must watch. By the end of it you will realize humanity, literally, depends on it and how easy it really is.

I saw three of them today. I am not interested in dairy cows or growing corn, so those two I didn't watch. I agree the one on 'saving seeds' was the best!
I am looking forward to see more tomorrow

There was one about dairy cows? I didn't notice anything about dairy cows when I read the summaries....

EDIT: Ohhh, it's the Biodynamic one. Hadn't read the specific summary on that one since I seldom delve into Biodynamics.

i just watched Jerome Osentowski's greenhouse.  It was a very good introduction to a earth sheltered greenhouse, going over basic features.  But it was a basic talk.  If I purchased this Mother Earth package, would I get complete access to Jerome's book?  Or should I just purchase his book directly?

Another great presentation today.  My favourite was (of course) Intermediate Seed Saving Tips by Don Tipping

The bit about photosensitivity triggering reproduction in plants is something I would love to learn more about.  I've noticed it, but mostly with plants that don't normally grow this far north.  I wonder if there is something I can do to simulate southern daylight cycles (maybe planting something tall to the southwest in the late summer) or to acclimatize the plants to our conditions.  Probably a bit of both.

I really enjoyed watching Making Buckskin Clothing by Woniya Thibeault. I'd love to get a copy of her new book when it's finished. I have access to lots of hides, I should learn to make good use of them.

I'm hoping to watch the seed saving video later today. Unfortunately, there's lots of clouds here today causing really poor internet connection. I'm thinking they'll clear later. Had to sit outside in the cold mist to watch the last third of the buckskin video. Could have used a buckskin jacket and gloves

I watched Joel Salatin. I hoped to hear more on what chickens do for the soil. I don't think I am going to raise and butcher meat-chickens. But it was an interesting talk.
I watched Woniya, because everything on clothing is interesting to me. I think she was too technical for people who don't know much on buckskin or making clothes.
Then I wanted to watch Don Tipping on seeds, but my computer didn't want to show me ... I hope later on.
