I’m on my way to Seven Springs, PA to present at The Mother Earth News Fair but I was able get a show recorded and in the queue. In today’s episode I talk (as promised) about some of my plans for my homestead.
I was originally going to call this my permaculture plan but I think I’ve started working on more of a system basis. I’m thinking less about how to keep a system going and more about keeping all of the systems working and playing off each other.
*I built the chicken house and run, what next?
*I want a pig pen but I’m also going to pasture them or as Joel Salatin calls it “Acorn-finished” or pigaerators.
*My tough choice between having enough land for a cow or two.
*Some of the wild resources I have right next to my land and how I plan to utilize them.
*All of my animals are going to work just by being animals. Fertlizing things downhill, weeding, working the soil, etc.
