Check craigslist for older water solar heaters.  I picked up two panels and a tank for $300. Run a pump to push the water through the panels and back to the pond.

I agree. Once you stop eating nitrate/nitrites it changes the way food tastes. You have more or an appreciation of what real food tastes like when you go back to eating processed food.

If you can’t self process your food, then the next best step is to read the labels. Many health food stores sell bacon without nitrates/nitrites.

Thanks for bringing this subject back to light. I consider myself a newbie and appreciate older topics that are still relevant today.

What an awesome set or rules. Can I use these as a building block for the future.

I also have a few question.
How do you resolve conflicts?
When someone entering the community as a new worker/citizen/partner, do you evoke a trial period? Or do you have a list of accomplishments that need to be obtained prior or during the trial period for someone to become a permanent member/partner?

I have many more questions in regards to setting up an intentional community that will come to mind as questions are answered.

Wonder how long it is taking them to finish this project. Looks like I will be installing temporary fencing around the pond while my pond is under construction.

I heard that soaking the roots in a bucket for several hours prior to planting helps. Is this a valid point?
Thank you Wendy for the work that you have given towards this project. It looks like a project that I will be doing on my farmstead.

I do have a question in regards to dealing with the government. What is the best way to approach this? Would working towards vermicompost or a modified septic tank approach?
