Agreed with Stephanie. To get the ball rolling, I would contribute to some type of funding, whether fencing or other to get more people there.

For maybe a potential ant that's overwhelmed with the idea of starting out with a completely blank slate, what would be the rough cost to hire out the building of an initial Wofati?

Or is there an Ant 2 out there that could come build Wofatis for him or herself and Ant 3 simultaneously and charge Ant 3?

What would get anyone considering it to make the leap?

Saw this on craigslist and thought someone here might be interested. Don't know anything about it other than finding it on craigslist.

How about 100 skiddable bee huts plus the process of creating bee habitat. Then maybe how a gapper is going to be able to run with trying to sell Wheaton Labs honey.

My wife is a teacher so we keep up with test scores regularly. Northern Elementary was 99th percentile for elementary schools this year.

The Sadieville area of northern Scott County is pretty affordable and has a good elementary school. Land is hilly Not bluegrass horse farms though. We looked around there last year, but ended up near Midway. Feel free to mooseage me.

Maybe you can find some inspiration from two similar ideas I liked from recent Permaculture Voices podcasts for tree crop systems.

Grant Shultz at Versaland had a video of mulching his trees with freshly cut grass. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f_guES2aGoQ

And Phil Rutter has a mobile biochar wagon for using tree trimmings out in the field https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/80297702/badgerchar-mobile-a-farmer-friendly-mobile-biochar

Turkeysong blog has a Franken apple tree he claimed had 140 unique apple varieties before it became diseased.

I couldn't find a definition of contour that meant curve, so maybe that's the misunderstanding.

Would you choose not to buy grass fed beef from a great rotational grazing, certified organic, all the right things farm because it is very close to a coal fired power plant?

One of the other podcasts I listen to is the bulletproofexec and he interviewed Jordan Rubin who wrote the Maker's Diet book.

http://www.bulletproofexec.com/podcast-47-biohacking-cows-bulletproof-dairy-and-probiotics-with-natural-health-expert-jordan-rubin/

I've seen the Maker's Diet book on my mom's coffee table and flipped through it. It seems pretty close to paleo so I gave her the thumbs up to try it.


In the interview he does mention permaculture once and seems to use a lot of permaculture techniques on his farm. He says he's going to no longer use alfalfa because he can't find a clean source. 7% still has GMO or glyphosphate content. He also sourced his dairy cows from ancient lines from Africa and India.

Not endorsing the product or MLM. But he might be interesting to follow in a 'what would a multi-millionaire with a permaculture and organic knowledge set do' way.
