From Drill bits to Scythes

For many years I watched my father struggle as he drilled holes into concrete walls (you know, for hanging stuff around the house and what not). He would work very hard, put a lot of force into it, needed someone (sometimes me) to hold up the ladder so he could push into the wall. And […]

Solar Food Dehydrators

At the end of last summer I built our first two solar food dehydrators and our first experiments with them were really great. I have been asked a few times about our choices so I finally got around to writing this. First things first. Why dehydrated food? It is an additional option for preserving and […]

Sheep Shipping

There is a herd of sheep grazing in our valley (including on some of our land). During this time of year the herds expand since many lambs are born. At this time herd owners that want to make an income from milk (used to produce dairy products) need to separate the lambs from the rest […]

Biosan Hit by Hail

Maramures in the 1960’s

A unique view into traditional Romanian village life with honorable mentions of: hemp: grown and processed by hand for clothing. financial wisdom: a commons approach to land wooden wheels … wow! wood-planks: the fluidity with which a log is transferred (by two men and a very long saw) into planks gypsies: with a disctinct role […]

Water First

I really need to get this short post out of my system because its stuck in my throat … When I first learned about Permaculture I got lost in a bad way. So many bits and pieces of information are associated with Permaculture that I could not make sense of it all. Particularly I couldn’t […]

When to Get Food?

When it’s available! That seems like an obvious answer but if you have gotten used to super-market mentality then that answer is not so obvious. If you shop in super-markets you can probably get pretty much whatever you want whenever you want it (though prices may fluctuate) … and you are used to it being […]
