  1. For the Permaculture and Alternative Living Professionals out there: In honor of Toby’s memory and to further permaculture we are releasing this course to the world for free. It is our hope that this course will push permaculture forward by providing an easy to understand and follow, introductory course to permaculture and at the same time allow everybody to experience the knowledge and joy Toby brought into so many hearts. We are reaching out to you because you are a professional in the world of permaculture and we believe your knowledge and experience should also be shared with the world and those just getting into permaculture can experience your teachings with an easy way to continue learning from you. We are asking for two things if you are willing to contribute. A video of how Toby has had a positive impact on you in your life. An instructional video to be added to the course as an additional lesson to the Creating Gaia’s Garden curriculum. We ask that the second video include your logo and website URL or a way of contacting you so that students taking the course can reach you for further education. If you need any help producing these videos, please let us know and one of the PermaEthos staff will get you scheduled and set up to record the videos. It is a very simple process. There are no limitations to the length of the videos. It is totally up to you. You can post your videos to YouTube or Vimeo. If you prefer we can also provide you with a place to upload your videos. It does not matter what privacy setting you have set for your video as long as we can embed them into the course.

  4. Propagating Your Tomato Plants

    I assume JP is referring to Pinterest. BOF Pinterest page is http://www.pinterest.com/brinkoffreedom
  5. Physical Fitness 101

    I looked through all of your previous comments and cannot find another one for Physical Fitness 101. Maybe it got caught in the spam filter. I don’t see how that could have happened though. All comments from you are set to skip the moderation.
  6. Permaculture Principles and Preparedness

    Thank you for the very kind words. We will keep the fight going. There are so many people waking up. I am in the fortunate position to see it every day and it is great!
  7. Permaculture Principles and Preparedness

    Thank you very much. I hope to have more like this soon. Right now I am working on articles showcasing the projects we have been working on at Jack Spirko’s homestead. But I will pump out more opinionated articles in the near future.
  8. Interview with Allan Savory

    Nicholas Burtner of Working With Nature and Josiah Wallingford of Brink of Freedom interview Allan Savory of the Savory Institute. First posted on Brink of Freedom.
  9. Morels Hiding in the Shadows

    Jack Spirko, Nicholas Ferguson and I just had a wonderful dish of morels harvested off of our first PermaEthos farm. They were delicious!

  11. Government Breaks All Ten Commandments

    I look at the separation of church and state and wonder. I think separation of church and state is a good thing. I think separation of state and everything is a good thing. I would like to separate from the state. Unfortunately we are not given this option. The separation, while a good thing, created a new religion. The state has simply become a new religion. Now, people that do follow a religion are actually following two religions. Even atheists can no longer claim atheism unless they are anarchists as well.
  12. DIY Household Cleaners

    Laundry Soap I’ve used this recipe for several years. It works well, is easy to make, and is very inexpensive. 1 Bar soap – use any bar soap you prefer of whatever is on sale 1 cup Borax (laundry aisle) 1 cup Washing soda (Can’t find washing soda? See below how to make it yourself) 10 drops Essential oil (optional) Grate the bar of soap or grind to a fine powder in a food processor. Mix all other ingredients in and thoroughly mix. Use about ¼ cup per load of laundry. ** How to make washing soda: Place 2-3 cups of baking soda in a thin layer on a baking sheet. Heat the oven to 400 degrees. Bake for 1-2 hours. The baking soda will go from shiny and powder to grainy and dull – that’s when it’s changed to washing soda. Fabric Softener 2 cups Hair conditioner (I just buy whatever is on sale at the time that I think smells good) 3 cups Vinegar 6 cups Water Pour the conditioner, vinegar, and water into a bowl. I use a whisk to gently stir until the conditioner is dissolved completely. Pour into a container with a lid. Don’t shake the container before using as it will foam up. Use ¼ cup in the rinse cycle of the wash. You can also soak a rag in the fabric softener and toss in the dryer with your clothes. Dusting Spray 2 cups Water ¼ cup Lemon juice 2 teaspoons olive oil 10 drops essential oil (optional) (lemon/orange/citrus work best) Combine all ingredients in a spray bottle. Laminate Floor Cleaner – one of my favorites! 1 cup Water 1 cup Rubbing alcohol 2-3 drops dish soap or castile soap 10-15 drops essential oil (I use lavender) Mix all ingredients in a spray bottle. Then spray the floor and use a Swiffer type cleaner to mop it up. Leaves the floor shiny and clean. Some people use 1 cup of vinegar in this. I don’t care for the smell, though. *Instead of buying refills for the Swiffer, just use an old dish cloth. Stick it in the holes in the Swiffer and throw it in the wash when you’re done.
  13. Dead Simple Fodder System

    Nick, No, we do not feed fodder exclusively. The birds mostly wild forage and we provide them with supplemental feed as a backup if they want it. For the supplemental feed we use Texas Naturals GMO-Free feed.
  14. Dead Simple Fodder System

    Just ask for whole barley. Not steam rolled. Russell Feed and Supply carries it here in Texas.
  15. Dead Simple Fodder System

    We get the barely from Russell Feed and Supply http://www.russellfeedandsupply.com/Same place we get the GMO free chicken feed from.
