10:00 AM – 12:30 PM
Greenwood Conservation Area2290 Greenwood Road, Ajax, ON
Calling all Preppers, Self reliant, Homesteaders, Bush Crafters and well anyone who want to learn really !
Thank you to all the followers, I am honoured by the simple fact you have chosen to follow along.
My little journey has been split it seems, One direction is the Self Reliance direction and the other is the Writing direction. Two different groups though they both thirst for knowledge, understanding and seek out their own paths.
I am happy and honoured that so many published writers have taken the time to look over some of my writings, comment on them offer suggestions and then follow the blog. Wow.. Thank you all.
The Self Reliant types, well you all know how I feel about you guys and gals as well, so thanks a bunch
Have a safe and happy week everyone, may the Sun shine on your works and thoughts.
Day 4 of Waking Weird my world and maybe the world around me has changed forever and I go and check email! No new messages
Acronyms was my second last email, to someone. They were wondering about all the Acronyms in the Canadian Prepper’s Board. What a silly last email to send, I wish now that instead of telling him to go search, I had found the page and directed him to it.
My phone, I have been looking around and leaving messages, written out for people to call my phone, then I go and leave it in the Van. Worse than that, I have forgotten to make any calls myself. That is the fuzziness talking again, that weird buzzing in my ears and lack of oxygen from my Lung problem(s) in my head.
But I am getting away ahead here. That is not how the day started at all!
Weird my world and maybe the world around me has changed forever
This is a cover for the Journal, follow to a very cool blog on how to make this, before the world ends
waking up into this strange world!
MD and Wolf Pack
Thank you for having this site. I was so over whelmed when I first started prepping that I didn’t know where to start. I reviewed every website I could find but this is by far the most informative site I have found. I now have a plan, have started stocking , and I am learning new skills to help. These suggestions are from YOUR site. Thank you! “
Now let me tell you that is a very big relief, and a source of good knowledge in itself. M.D. has actual practical skills and life lessons, others in The Wolf Pack have actual life skills and lessons that they will share. So are all of them Ex military, no not on your life and that is what makes it all work actually. There only tends to be one true bias, that bias is to come together and offer help and assistance.
Howdy, I am reposting/repressing/reblogging (not sure of all the differences here!)
FarmGal’s 3rd permy info session is here, http://livingmydreamlifeonthefarm.wordpress.com/2012/04/24/hugelculture-making-hill-beds-for-garden-use/ Search through her site and find some interesting Recipes, do this after lunch and not before! Also look for Oxen/Ox training of Girl, the name of her Female cow who is being trained as an Ox. Very cool indeed
Why do this;
- ok, I am lazy?
- She has great info, Farmgal has so lets get you the info from the person who actually went to the lecture, who has some great hands on experiences. So in essence from the Oxen’s mouth, cause she does not have a horse, but is training to Cows to be Oxen, explanation is cheesy right?
- As part of my journey and for my own memory reasons, I document some information and share it with whomever feels like reading this.
- Aquaponics Family is another example, I am totally impressed with them, totally EH! (he he, now look at the sentence and say it like a valley girl, with the Eh like one of the hossers)(hhmmm too much caffeine for me, but it is fun and I like to write like I talk, the world is too serious already)
Next you will find a link to a post that was done a while back by myself with links to the leaders in the Permaculture Fields. I will probably be editing the links soon to include the Aquaponics Family and a few other sources for Aquaponics information. Another great innovation that can be done in your basement, you garage or backyard.
Here is the link to their site and to their profile
Now I am think that if you take some lessons from the lecture series from Prof Will Hooker Prof. NCS in the USA – follow through to a great and interesting presentation and video series on Permaculture pay attention to his house visit lecture #5 or 6 where he talks about his small Frog Pond and fist ponds and the effects on the surrounding nature
add in the ideas from Geoff Lawton and Here is the link to the Permaculture Australia site and AgroForestry and Food Forests.
All of the sources above have video links to those who are too tired to read, so Google and YouTube the names and come up with some Videos to watch, get the family interested.
A Farm For the Future – very well presented and easy to watch a great intro video for you, your family and others around you. (British)
How Cuba Survived Peak Oil, this was surprising, so all encompasing and teaches us all that you can do it on a Nation Wide Basis!
Cuba Power of Community How Cuba survived Peak Oil Crisis (slovenski podnapisi) full name to search for
Next search for Videos and PDF’s, books by Jean Pain on Jean Pains methods of Bio Heating and Bio Fuel (that is a real I opener, so easy to at least cut the costs of heating houses, barns and the like and all the info is from the 80’s and proven time and again)
Bill Mollinson – Global Gardener Series
Geoff Lawton and Here is the link to the Permaculture Australia site his speciality is Food Forests so search for that and his name
Of course my personally Fav of all time, Sepp Holzer and his books, video series and short YouTubes made by other people who visited him!
* Now you can start by planting some 3 Sisters Gardens, smaller and uncomplicated, eventually grow into the Full Blown Permaculture and Aquaponics Routes, this is a natural progression. You can start all of this in your backyard or basement, in your new or existing Homestead, on your wild and natural acreage or in your tree lot or hunting camp. Want to help keep the animals out, Sepp Holzer suggests that you plant food for them in lots of areas in your property. Plant lots of Lettuce, they all love lettuce. I would do a 3 sisters garden technique for them and you then, seed lots of areas in your property and in the ajacent property. Just dig a little bit, cover with some soil and walk away! Repeat, Repeat, Repeat. The only cost is some seeds.
Why do this, plant for the animals, my answer is WHY NOT! We as Humans are greedy, we take over all the land that we see saying it is ours, the animals have been here for 50,000 yrs or more, and that is just for the modern version of the bears! Give some thought and think on it, ok. We take over everything, kill off the forests, the fields and swamps, where to they live, where to they get food. Well if I was a hungry animal in the wild, I would learn quickly to look for humans, since they are everywhere! Ok, let them look, now plant stuff in their path, find game trails, out of the way areas of your paddocks, fields, swamp or wetlands, plant food there for them. Propagate some the natural foods as well, such as Jerusalem Artichokes, Aramath, Nettles and the list goes on and on. Remember, you can forage in these areas as well, take some of the natural foods, enjoy them, take some others and replant them for others.
Remember become Land Stewards and not just occupiers, work with Nature and Nature will work with you. God loves those that help themselves. Maybe if he sees you helping the animals with food, he will send some helpers to direct the animals to the safer wild areas and away from your Gardens! Just a thought, just a thought.
Now any comments or links to Aquaponics, Permaculture, Hugelculture, AgroForestry and FoodForests not covered are welcome to be put as comments at the end of the blog, so please share with others. The Government will never really help us, so lets help ourselves.
p.s. spam will be deleted as a matter of course!
cheers and looking forward to your comments and links ~WildE
