I'm mostly growing them for the nitrogen, next to some fruit trees.  I live in California, so average daily temperatures are always above freezing.

I planted a couple bare root black locusts about two years ago that I want to coppice.  They are about 8 feet high now, and their trunks are about a couple inches in diameter.  How long do I need to wait before coppicing?

I have been using straw mulch, but unfortunately it seems to attract pests that eat my seedlings, especially my tomatoes. The pests seem to be too small to see, so I don't know what they are. I have tried using diatomaceous earth with very little success. Any advice?

I was wondering if anyone has had experience raising wild animals for food. I know some wild animals such as bison are grown for food. Others would probably be illegal. What wild animals would you suggest that would be legal and would adapt well to a small farm?

I'm not to the point where that is an option for me yet, I'm just considering the possibilities in order to develop a plan. Having not had a plan for the first 25 years of my life and spending the following 5 years catching up I now understand the importance of planning.

I was thinking that when I start my homestead I should register it as a 501c3. The mission would be to conduct research and provide education on permaculture, natural building, and sustainability. The benefit would be that everything I spend on it would be tax deductible. What do you think?

Where do you get all those tires for earthships? I can imagine a huge portion of the time and money that went into building the house could be wasted on just transporting materials.
