it takes a (virtual) village to heat and light a village?

I'm going to nominate a wh*** community of power players for this one. I've harped on this theme in previous blog posts, but, DIVERSIFICATION is the key in power, as in food security. For that reason, the sort of collaboration and place-based fine tuning that happens on instructables.com is just the ticket. These people seem to ALL own soldering irons. they listen to each other, they comment on each other's projects and that take ideas and improve and tinker with them, for their own challenging… Continue

Keep It Simple, Stupid (S**t happens).

I'm going to make an extremely unglamorous selection, here. The person I chose to follow works in the United States, does his work somewhat quietly, and literally in his own backyard. He's somewhat older than the target audience here and his web presence is low-key, and slightly low-tech.



He's also brilliant. Part of the driving Evoke principles is to really a****s what you have in terms of resources. What could possibly be more brilliant and helpful to find a way to use as a resource… Continue

From seeds. From scratch.

I garden. A yard to garden in was one of the major reasons that i opted for a room in a falling down group house in a somewhat dicey part of town, instead of an apartment, elsewhere. But before I had that yard, I gardened anyway. In windowsills, in a community garden plot, with a jury-rigged sort-of-hyroponic setup under the fluorescent lights at my office. I grew sprouts and shoots in cupboards, and I fed our food scraps to a box of red wriggler worms, who turned them into excellent fertilizer… Continue

"I was determined to know beans"

If you're an american, especially if your family has been here for a couple of generations, and you're not wealthy, it's likely that there are a half dozen things you can't pronounce i the last meal you ate. Food production has becoming highly specialized; chances are you don't know a farmer. There are more people employed by the US department of agriculture than there are actual farmers, I once read. If it's not true, the gap is small.


I think this may be the biggest long…

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

Stinging Nettle

In this blog post I will focus on a plant that is abundant in our nature, and which is immensely nutritious. It's of course the Stinging Nettle. Let's start with the chemical constituents of this plant:37 % Non-Nitrogen-Extracts19 - 29 % Ash9 - 21 % Fiber4 % Fat22 % ProteinOnce the leaves are drid, their protein content can reach an astounding 40 %, which is much higher than beef, which even under the best of circ***tances can never exceed 31 % protein. In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

Future

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
