Indigenous Knowledge - Native Bees

It's 2073 and I am still teaching sustainable farming. In todays class I tell of a free local garden input that is already available for home use. The native bee.

Native bees are usually unnoticed by most people. They are the best pollinators around. Compared to honeybees, native pollinate 10 to 15 times more efficiently, both males and females pollinate, the are more hardy in their local environment. Making accommodations for them is also a lot easier and requires very…

Isolated indigenous people have fewer degenerative traits in children than civilized processed food eaters


Well I have to bring this up again. The Weston Price Foundation. Mr Weston A. Price was a dentist who learn a lot from indigenous people and how their lifestyle is healthier due to the lack of access to processed foods. The Weston A. Price foundation was founded long after the research was done but is now becoming a movement in the civilized world. It's really not that they… Continue

Collecting your own water and using it

The earth is about 1/3 water on the surface. Most of it is "salt" water. Salt water requires desalinization which I will leave for the experts and most hardy do-it-yourselfers. We also have rain that falls on us on a somewhat regular basis. I have gathered some info on collecting rainwater and additional info on ways to may it palatable. The most popular way to store rain is in rain barrels The major obstacles of using collected rainwater is proper storage and moving it through a watering… Continue

Homemade Reneable Energy

I am a do-it-yourself type guy. I look for things to start on that are simple enough for the average person (like me) to actually build. I had a little success using the internet. Youtube has a lot of videos to go through. I've watched a good number of these and found that I can recall the info pretty well but I also like written instructions and diagrams. I found a couple of sites that have access to shared knowledge on making your own renewable electricity. They are listed… Continue

Girls Initiative groups

I have a friend is runs a Healthy girls initiative group in my area. This program is geared toward giving girls the ability to empower themselves by learning more about themselves and developing their self-esteem. There are many problems that still linger in our society that make it difficult for girls to succeed in achieving their dreams. Teaching them and support them while they are young is important. Most of us are heavily influenced by our elders and our peers while we were young. We… Continue

free plants

Yesterday I seeded a bunch of plants. To day I posted a call out to my friends to bring me pots to put them in and take home. I am hoping to start a trend and see how many people will become growers for the community. I can instruct them in the ways of growing, let them grow in bulk to give away and to learn how to get in on helping the community grow food even if they have little time to commit to the effort. I am encouraging easy plants and encouraging people to act regardless of their… Continue

Learn to Nurish yourself

Food security should be looked at on the personal level as well as globally. Think of what happens to yourself from the things you eat now. I am not going to go into detail about everything that is bad for you, I don't have the time. I do have a few things to say.

I will be as bold as to say that if comes in a package you should avoid it. What? This is not an ironclad rule but a good rule of thumb. Things that come in packages are usually packed with unhealthy additives, just look at… Continue

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

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.

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.
