What would help you on your homesteading / permaculture adventure? I'm starting a new blog and I want to write blog posts that provide the most value to you all. While I can't write on every topic I can do interviews to fill the gap.
Please only use one apple per topic - feel free to vote for more than one topic.
Thank you all!
Do you want to work with nature to grow your own food and build a natural life? Check out Wild Homesteading's thread on permies to get started.
My own homestead farm has incorporated all those topics except guilds. Part of my own success involved a few other topics that I feel are important.....at least they were for me.
...establishing a local bartering system in the community
...taking advantage of diverse small income sources
...utilizing local resources. In my case, I'm referring to green waste, deadwood, livestock manures, stable clean out waste, fruit tree waste, wild bamboo, excess forest duff, rock and gravel, clean fill -- all obtained free and with permission of the land owners.
...developing resources on one's own land -- utilizing "waste" or unused land for growing biomass crops, growing saplings for poles, etc.
Here's a wish that you'll enjoy doing your blog. Let me know the address so that I can visit and glean a few tips it's to bring back to my own homestead. Thanks.
It's never too late to start! I retired to homestead on the slopes of Mauna Loa, an active volcano. I relate snippets of my endeavor on my blog : www.kaufarmer.blogspot.com
