A Permaculture Retrofit of My Beaver Deceiver

Beavers are very beneficial to our property, and we need to retrofit an existing beaver deceiver on one of their dams. Our beavers help to increase our productivity, drought resiliency, and the sustainability of our property. In this video, Rob talks about some of the contributions of the ingenious beaver engineers, and how the Verge farm will partner with the beavers for the benefit of both. Links to topics in this video: 1:13 Rob’s theory of how beaver dams act like biofilters 2:32 How the beaver dam steals kids’ fun, but improves moisture levels in riparian areas, and recharges groundwater aquifers 3:34 Can beavers prevent droughts? How they will help provide excellent livestock grazing in wet and dry years 4:58 Why we must harvest rainwater 6:10 Regenerative agriculture on the Verge farm, vs industrial agriculture 7:41 At the beaver dam: A Beaver Deceiver 8:15 Concern about the existing Beaver Deceiver, Rob’s planned solution, and potential resources from the dam 10:14 Rob discusses the turbidity of the water and the effect the beaver dam could have on the water 11:02 How water depth behind the dam effects the wetland area around the dam Check out the T-shirts and mugs in our Merch Store! https://teespring.com/stores/verge-...

Permaculture Case Studies and Open Q&A

Ideas on the Verge: Christina Crook on Moving from FOMO to JOMO.

We’ve all experienced it - the unending tension and anxiety of potentially missing out on key news, trends or important developments online. But how to break free from that spiralling “must know now” compulsion? Thankfully, a rising wave of mindful thinkers are now offering ways to cope with the overwhelm of must-see data flooding through our computers, tablets and smartphones. Join Mitch Rawlyk and Ideas on the Verge as he interviews one of the leading voices of that backlash, Christine Crook, on her new book, “The Joy of Missing Out.” From the insights gained through her own Internet fast, she considers the impact of FOMO on our relationships, children, health, work, communities and more, and suggests strategies for a new, more balanced way of living, beyond our steady state of distracted "connectedness." Christina’s book was a harbinger of the global #JOMO movement and kicked off her ongoing work as a digital mindfulness thought leader, speaker, writer, and host of the JOMOcast podcast. She’s a founding member of the Digital Wellness Collective, a body of professionals in the digital wellness space. Ideas on the Verge is sponsored by New Society Publishers (https://newsociety.com/)
