Raising chickens without grains is a wonderful video produced by my hero Geoff Lawton. Imagine taking a waste stream and using it to feed your chickens! In this video, Geoff visits Carl Hammer at Vermont Compost to learn how he feeds chickens at almost no cost.
The Zero Waste Challenge is a great way to start your journey towards a zero waste lifestyle. The challenge is to replace one single use item with a reusable one once a month. This slow start helps you to not get overwhelmed by the process. At first, it may be difficult but with time it gets easier, my wife and I like to make a game out of it. We try to see who can come up with best reusable replacement even if that means making some of our household products ourselves like toothpaste or shampoo.
What is Permaculture? Well this is what I used to tell them “Permaculture is a design science for your life, based upon the highest ethical standards. It includes environmental design, integrated water resource management, and regenerative agricultural systems modeled from natural ecosystems.” It’s what get’s me out of bed ever morning!
Now I tell them that “Permaculture is a holistic approach to land and life design!” it’s also what get’s me out of bed ever morning!
