yay! thanks. I'll keep you all posted on this forum. Airing may begin as soon as this fall.
Paul, our community is applying for a low bandwidth radio station. It will be in Roanoke, VA and it will be a non profit. We have told the agency in charge that we will air educational programming. I'm in the content group and I am a permaculturalist. I would like to have a few hours per week dedicated to permaculture topics and this would be about 1 of those hours per week. Other content will be mostly sustainability and social justice issues and information.

All I would want to do is air some of your podcasts, as they are currently posted on richsoil.com. We would air them in their entirety and change nothing. We would receive no income from your content. We would give full credit, both before and after each podcast, like you use at the end of your podcasts/videos, encouraging people to go to permies.com for more information on this and other material. It could be whatever you want, if anything special. After reading your posts regarding "tinkering with this site", and having listened to many of your podcasts on my iphone, I have a good understanding of your concerns and needs.

I ultimately want to further the current practices of permaculture, I am a permaculture teacher and my niche is urban permaculture. I appreciate the work you've done and want to share it.

Thanks for your consideration.
It's a community radio station that we're starting. Low band width. Non profit. Yes, it may be available online. Iwas just thinking of using the podcasts I see available online and airing their entirety.
I could not find the answer. Do you know the answer?
What about podcasts? Can we re air them, leaving full credits?
Paul, or those who know: What is your policy of sharing your podcasts? I'm interested in content for a small non profit radio in Virginia.
Is it ok to share your articles via RSS feeds? By the way, do you have RSS feeds for www.permies.com and www.richsoil.com? Great stuff and useful, too!
I hear your concern about the essential minerals. I understand that it doesn't take all of the metals out, just the heaviest, which are mostly out from the distillation process of the rain cycle, anyway. My understanding is that the essential minerals, the lighter ones, are still in there. It seemed very good to me. I guess there are cheaper ways, like the ceramic filter elements in a 5 gallon pail. Stainless is nice, too!

I have been drinking my rainwater for about a year. I use a standard, inexpensive whole house pre filter, then a Berkey http://cart.berkeyfilters.com/bigberkey.aspx?gclid=CPewqYnD56gCFcTd4AodyhZtEw
3 gallon ceramic filter. These filters are excellent at removing all heavy metals, pathogens, bacteria and fungi.
http://www.berkeyfilters.com/watertest.htm They are gravity fed and stainless steel. I'm super glad I purchased one.



I'm putting a metal roof on my house in a few years and will keep on using

this set up. I only use the Berkey for drinking and cooking. I use the whole house filter only for cleaning. It's a system that works well for me.
