Alright!

So im going to be trying the seed ball method with vegetables. Im going to be doing spinach, kale, brussel sprouts, and other herbs and vegetables. Im going to be doing this in the green house and outside. Seems to me that we can master this planting vegetables can be much easier.

Let me know if you guys have already tried this at all and if you have had any success or failure.

All the best

very interesting.

Im going to be trying this method with spinach, kale, brussel sprouts, and other herbs and all the regular vegetables. seems to me that if we can master this process of starting the vegetable seeds from clay balls this would highly increase our success rate with growing things in general. I will post my results on this page. Also message me if you are interested in discussing different methods and kicking around ideas. It would be cool to discuss these things with someone else who is also doing these things, we could meet up on skype i have someone else on there right now that i talk to maybe we could collaborate.

All the best

Hey everyone!

So im looking for a company that produces long sleeve collar shirts and pants responsibly... free trade and organic are a big plus. I have been to a couple such a fair indigo and earth creations but they only have t shirts... Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi im 23 and Im looking to volunteer for a reforestation project to help learn more about the practicality of permaculture. Ive been studying permaculture for about 3 years now and would like to see more of it applied in the real world. I am looking for any site in any part of the world. I've been looking at Sadhana Forest in Kenya.. they are doing some good work and i still need to check out Living Ecology project in India online. I want to help the world through this and also get a better understanding of permaculture.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated,

All the best,

Kenny

Kenny,

Well I make knives but I don't know if I would fit into what you are looking for. However I don't make pocket knives yet, they are in the works probably next year.

I prefer carrying a neck knife. I carry a pocket knife also but only as a backup.

We live on just under 10 acres and raise our own chickens, dairy cows, goats and horses. The plan is to try and grow most our own food, but that is pretty challenging. I am hoping to implement some permaculture into are farm but I am finding it is a challenge to get my work done. 10 acres is enough work for 10 people lol.

I like the ideal of looking for an old knife. I have a knife that I am going to be doing a post on how to repair or replace the handle on. I feel one of the most important skills is knowing how to sharpen a knife.

Knives will always get dull no mater how good the knife is, even ceramic knives will get dull but it is the knowledge and skill of sharpening that allows your knife to save time, energy, and remain a useful tool!

Good luck on your search for a knife!




Wow thats quite an undertaking!! How long have you lived on there for???

Ya okay thats pretty cool ya you know ive been thinking of getting a knife for a while how much do they go for???

Ya let me know if you ever do decide to make some pocket knives i would definitely be interested!! And ya i agree i mean i want a knife that i can call my own and sharpen it and take care of it. That would be pretty cool.

But ya if you have a website give me the link for your knives... or you can just message me or email me at kenpg67@gmail.com

All the best,

Kenny

Ya well what im looking to do is buy from a company that treats the environment in a good way. Its not so much about the knife as it is about who produces the knife and how they produce it. Im trying to spend my money on companies that i can ethically agree with.

Now i know making a knife requires extracting metals from the ground and a lot of processing. But if there is a company that maybe does it locally or responsibly. I know that is pretty high standards but if there is a company that does do that than i want to support them!! haha

Also even if its not the most enviormentally friendly if they support cause too reforest areas or support permaculture in any way or donates money to causes that help the enivornment or are B certified than ill support them rather than going to my local wal mart.

Hope that helps clarify,

All the best,

Kenny
