I came across this over on the BCUSA forum and figured some here might find it interesting. Me personally I am camera shy, and well don't really trust "reality" shows to be real and portray the cast well. They seem more interested in false drama than sharing good info and skills with the audience. Now being for the DIY channel, maybe it is different? I don't know. It also could be a good opportunity for someone to help promote permaculture to a wider audience.

But for folks who aren't shy behind a cameras, and might need/want some financial help to get their homestead running this might be a good opportunity. I do find it encouraging a bit they are specifically looking for folks at the beginning stages rather than already built up homesteads. Considering how finances are always tough for homesteaders, this might be a way to off set that initial flood of money going out. I know I actually gave it some thought even though I am camera shy, as getting a bit of cash flow for building my homestead would be a huge help. But I kinda know I would likely not even be picked for the show, being camera shy tends to mess up your camera presence. Because I get nervous and flustered it becomes hard to convey anything. As well as if I know I am being filmed, it could increase danger to dangerous tasks as I am pretty sure I would be distracted by the filming.

Anyways, here is the info. An ad in the back of Backwoods magazine. Take it or leave it.
