Lebone for all!

I live in a part of the world that doesn't get a great deal of sun, I'm not near the coast so can't make use of tidal power and the wind is unpredictable. Air source and ground source are too expensive for me at the moment. I would love though to be able to re-charge everyday items with www.lebone.org / http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microbial_fuel_cell type charging units. If anyone can post links… Continue

Barefoot

What I particularly like about www.barefootcollege.org is their approach to sustainability. They've been set up since 1972, but I first heard about them a couple of years ago when I was researching solar power in rural communities. The thing that I think makes their approach sustainable is that they train women to become solar engineers, so that when items break (and they will) rather than villagers being left with some broken expensive kit that just… Continue

Wild food and food forests

mmm foood.



I'm so pleased that I picked up a small book called "Food for Free" in a charity shop back in 2010. I remember thinking, I'll try a new wild food whenever I go out for a walk. And so I did! The first was lime tree leaves (Tilia platyphyllos). I picked the smallest leaf I could reach (as I'd read that when the get big they are not so nice) and nibbled tentatively at one edge. I was surprised, but just as the book said, they could be used a salad leaf - very nice…

Backyard permaculture food growing

So just a quick one here, but quite a timely quest.



A friend is concerned he might be made redundant (the organisation he works for is going through yet another re-organisation of roles, applying for your job, compulsory redundancies you know the kind of thing), his wife had had to resort to applying for part-time positions at fast food chains because there really aren't enough jobs going round for everyone at the moment.



So he's looking to start growing some food, he… Continue

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.

Where I will be in ten years.

Ten years from now I will be in a political job assisting with people in the midlands of South Carolina particularly the rural working class and farmers. As the class of people that feed the nation I find that it is imperative that we assist with making sure they produce as much food as possible. I would like to support local scientists as well that are leading in research on how to produce food more efficiently. I will also be participating in missions to foreign countries to help people with…See More

Included are new emergency routes on what will be an expanded highway to allow traffic to flow in the event of an emergency.See More

India Water home

The secret was living on the water via boats common in many developing countries like Myanmar. This is a real Indian boat home made of wood and this provides a shelter for many peoples around the world.
