There is no government sanctioned permaculture resource. Just stuff run by the wierdos, to paraphrase Paul above. That scares lots of people off.



A Government sanctioned resource would not be good.


I agree that it would definitely not be good.

I think it has a lot to do with opinions and Paul's law of subjective crazy. In permaculture there is no black and white right or wrong way to do it. If you put two different people on a property and ask them to design a system, it will turn out different, even if intended for the same party. Also everyone has different needs.
For instance, if someone made a medium sized system without animals, I would be tempted to think they designed wrong. but there are things i don't know about that person and site. Blow this up to a large scale and you get groups of people each thinking their way is the best and often wanting to change the way other groups design.

Then with subjective crazy, if someone has plants species that I would be inclined to reduce, I would think they're crazy and not follow their plans. Same goes for the whole levels of the eco scale thing.

All of this leads to bickering clans that the rest of the world decides to stay out of and just follow the universal suggestions of government institutes. Again, just my opinion.

I see healthy soil disturbance as something that would happen in nature. Birds scratching, pigs rooting to an extent, overturned trees.

I had golden amaranth from Southern Exposure Seed Exchange. I think it all sprouted bit the worms ate the first round so not sure.
Here is info on best mask filter material. Filter Material Test Results  

The table below shows the results of different mask materials tested by TSI, Inc using a TSI 8130a test machineĀ². This instrument is the gold standard in filtration media testing. The TSI 8130a is used by NIOSH to certify N95 respirators (42 CFR Part 84)  and by respirator manufacturers around the world to test their products.

I've found this plant for the first time here. I think its wild mint but I've never smelled wild mint before. Its not flowering yet. What does it look like to you?

The quarantine has proven beneficial for the garden. I've put in several hugel beds. I've harvested a round of green beans and 3 squash. There'll be more soon. The cilantro and lettuces are going to seed which will be saved.
