Thanks, Dale. I'm a retired research chemist. During my career, I didn't deal at all with soils, but it has been an interest I have picked up since I have more time to garden. When I figure out the proper forum to post it in, I'll let y'all in on my method to turn alkaline batteries into micronutrient fertilizer. One man's trash is another man's treasure.

WOW! I look forward to learning about turning batteries into fertilizer!

In the article posted below, the author describes vetiver used in Death Valley as follows:

"Vetiver is so good for the desert, we used it to hide air conditioners at the Furnace Creek Inn in Death Valley."

Vetiver grass sounds like a great biomass plant that is drought tolerant as well. I wonder if it would be something worth planting for compost or mulch?

What are these things called? How might I go about getting one?

These are called shade sails. They're pricey, but they do have returned shades that are in their clearance section. Several companies sell these; I didn't check all of them out.

thanks for offering your help. I will contact you by email in the next few days.

Does any of you have experience with audio editing software?


I don't have any experience with editing software but am willing to write reviews. No experience there either but I can give it a go.

Thanks, Susan

Another big problem is how money alienates us from each other. Money and bought services have eg. replaced neighbours helpin each other and that has been a huge loss. Frugality forces us into co-operation with other people and that although much more difficult than clicking "buy" is so much more rewarding.

When I read of barn-raisings and other pioneer activities I am reminded of the cooperation that occasionally occurred in my own neighborhood (a tightly knit catholic community of large families). I really miss that. Permablitzes seem like an innovative reconstruction of that type of activity. I think that is one of several reasons why an ecovillage (or even more so, Paul's farm) appeals so much to me.

I am very grateful for this website and want to show my appreciation.
I think I can put in an hour a day, or 7 hours a week, and see from there.
So, here I am.

I would like to show my appreciation too in a way that benefits the forums. Would you like for instance to have an interested individual submit a podcast summary for consideration? If so, which one? And I would consider volunteering for podcast coordinator if I was certain I would be a good fit for the job.

When the need arises for a ceramist/printmaker/land art installation artist/gardener I'm your man woman!

I love the image that comes to mind when I read 'deep roots'.
