Hey All!
This October we are hosting a couple weeks of courses at our place in Irvine, KY which is about 1hr southeast out of Lexington. First a 13 day PDC, then a 2 day mushroom cultivation, and finally a 3 day Restoration Agriculture with Mark Shepard. Onsite camping and vegan meals included!

Let me know if I can help anyone with questions. All the information can be found at WildEarth.Farm under events.

Cheers,
Joe

Paul,
Around 5 years ago I herniated a disk in a my lower spine. I know it is the opposite end of things, but there were a couple resources that I still lean on today. The number one person is Dr Stuart McGill, who I believe is out of California. His books are textbook like. He has done tremendous amounts of research into Back issues and I still find them invaluable. Much of his work seems to be lower back, however, there may be some key takeaways for you. Including many studies into safe and unsafe exercise movements that he has done extensive laboratory research into. There is Esther Gokhale and also the Egoscue methods.

I hope you find a solution, I know too well how frightening this pain is...mostly that we cant get the work done how we want to. Be well.

And I won't be sacrificing any decency at all. I will be supporting what I believe to be ethical and not participating in things that are not. If you were to ask me about ethics and then say you will not be doing anymore business with my farm because of those ethics, I'd be confused as to why you would be anti-ethical, then we would probably part ways.. I don't understand that..



I agree. There is a big difference between offering your product and how you create it and telling others how they should live their life. Offering your goods to the market and differentiating yourself from other farms through your ideas, or the customers you think you can attract is important. I would venture to guess that all of us on here live our lives according to what we think is right and wrong. Your opinion on that is just as important as mine, and you don't have to cater to my opinion by limiting your dreams and business ideas. That may be your downfall or it may be your ticket.

The interesting thing is that our farm is a combination vegan permaculture/animal sanctuary and we have had no backlash from vegans(yet). I have been involved in that community for a long time and know many of them. The accusations that have come to us saying we do not understand have been from non vegans who have asked questions such as "how will you keep the bees and other insects out since you will have no animal inputs in your farm" What they don't understand is that it is not our desire to have no animal inputs on the project. It is not only impossible, it is not our goal.

What we are very interested in is living lives that test our principles. We want vegans to understand that those soybean and corn fields are also factory farms. We want vegans to understand that their protein needs to come from other foods in order to be sustainable. In a way our project will be more critical of vegans because that is the community we most associate with, and in all honesty many have a lot to learn about food sourcing. As do non vegans alike.

By definition, it is not waste if the eggs are composted or fed to non human animals on the farm. This is a direct cycling of nutrients, that will improve the soil and in turn your products. Should you not consider eggs to be human food, you should not be ashamed to let them go back to the earth through other means than a human digestive tract.

Hi everyone! I thought this might be a good spot to jump in. This is exactly what some friends and I are working on. We are hosting a vegan pdc this summer and we are aiming to incorporate rescued farmed animals as a permaculture based animal sanctuary. WildEarthSanctuary.org
