I feel there is an opprotunity to spread the idea of hugelkultur via social media to start- up young community gardens. new community based garden pop up in cities across the gobal annually, most of these gardens create social media pages very early in there development. If these gardens/ media groups could became awhere of hugelkultur and persuaded to create a single hugel as pracites could create a buzz back to said community socail media page and linked article . I'm personally developing a community garden and have installed micro hugels and buried wood plots, Im hoping the these radically diffrent examples of gardening will attact buzz to our media page and in return create awareness about permaculture.

Burning Man is far from a sustainable and no way a permaculture event but it's a very interesting event!

I have no experiance with a unmaned systems, but i have used a p.v golf cart for two week a year for four years on a massive dryed lake bed. we use 615watts of P.v and 300 amp hrs of batteries, in return we used the cart everyday on adverage 30 miles and powering tools, never once had to use any other engery source to repower the battery bank.
one time we did use to much power and had to ditch the cart a mile away from camp. in the morning we walk back and sun did out work for us while we had breakfest, so all we had to do when we got there was drive back to camp!
i love P.V carts!

Long story short we want to become ANTS
Were Josh and Mavin Giss, were Transplants coming to Missoula in the spring and are ready to grow roots. We currently live in an urban Intentional community, through it’s an awesome living example of a sustainable living we have plan-working to live a “beyond sustainable”. I spend way to long on I.C.org planning, talk, etc... Without giving away our planning history we being complied to make our future in Missoula. I have a history with the city and have felt the awesomeness of land. Our dream/ goal is to move this spring and at first live in or near the city, for my wife is a freelance programmer that will be creating income for the our plan to make a long term commitment to Permaculture land stewardship. I Joshua will be working full time in educating myself in Permaculture studies and working with whomever is dedicated to Permaculture life style.
We want to support the ant farm right away as we build up to a deep roots community role. We have become financially independent and would love to invest right away in a long term rental of small acre of land to have a living –in learning experience .In the long term when our knowledge and your practice of the land we would like to build naturally on the land and permantly live on it.
As for now we are very interested in learn more about the status of Ant village in hope to work together and invest with the system you are developing for world domination!
