Our new book, Building your Permaculture Property: A 5-Step Process to Design & Develop Land is the brain child of YEARS of hard work and experience in the world of Permaculture Design... We wrote this book to fill an obvious gap we have seen in the space of Permaculture, and that's how to confidently, efficiently, and intelligently navigate your way through any Permaculture Design process, anywhere in the world. There is ample information out there on swales, food forests, gardening, etc.. But nowhere could we find a credible book on how to THINK your way through the design process. So we decided to write it ourselves 😉 J --- SUPPORT THIS CHANNEL --- $5 - http://bit.ly/2mRYEd4 $10 - http://bit.ly/2Deg0Xx $20 - http://bit.ly/2rjHqtM --- BOOKS --- Essential Rainwater Harvesting: A Guide to Home-Scale System Design: https://newsociety.ca/books/e/essen...

Insulating The Solar Wall in Our Passive Solar Greenhouse

Want the Recordings from the Building your Permaculture Property Global Summit?➡https://www.mypermacultureproperty.... Enjoy this short clip from the day we insulated and tacked in Vapor Barrier in the Passive Solar Greenhouse! This greenhouse is the product of YEARS of testing, modeling, and experimentation and we're so excited to have it near completion! We're not too far off from planting cold season crops like kale, chard, and bok choi! Keep your eyes peeled for future videos 😉 We love, and will continue, to share short clips on our Youtube channel, but if you're looking for more of a deep dive on Passive Solar Greenhouse design and you want access to the FULL case study montage of this greenhouse when it's all complete, head on over to our website and pick up the Comprehensive Passive Solar Greenhouse course! --- SUPPORT THIS CHANNEL --- $5 - http://bit.ly/2mRYEd4 $10 - http://bit.ly/2Deg0Xx $20 - http://bit.ly/2rjHqtM --- BOOKS --- Essential Rainwater Harvesting: A Guide to Home-Scale System Design: https://newsociety.ca/books/e/essen...

Our Sopka Wood Cook Stove is Installed and we LOVE it!

Register today for the Building your Permaculture Property Global Summit: https://www.mypermacultureproperty.... We LOVE our new Sopka Wood cook stove! With this stove we are able to heat our home, cook our food, and, eventually, heat up water for domestic use! As we continue to develop our homestead, transitioning from fossil fuels to renewable energy resources is high on our priority list. Using wood instead of propane, our current heat source, is a much more environmentally way of meeting out needs, and much cheaper as well since we cut and split all our own logs! Not only is processing firewood fun, but it's great exercise and 10/10 beats sitting behind a desk all day 😉 You can check out more details about the stove by clicking the links below: https://sopkainc.com/ https://sopkainc.com/shop/wood-burn... --- SUPPORT THIS CHANNEL --- $5 - http://bit.ly/2mRYEd4 $10 - http://bit.ly/2Deg0Xx $20 - http://bit.ly/2rjHqtM --- BOOKS --- Essential Rainwater Harvesting: A Guide to Home-Scale System Design: https://newsociety.ca/books/e/essen...

WonderMill Demo & Review - Our Grain Mill for Home-Scale Bread Making

This is where we purchase the WonderMill: https://www.berryhill.ca/ Register now for the Building your Permaculture Property Global Summit: https://www.mypermacultureproperty.... The WonderMill is a manually powered Grain Mill for home scale use. In this video, Mitch and Ollie show you how to use it and give you their honest feedback on what they liked and disliked about the WonderMill. It's not uncommon for people who are into making their own bread to own an electric grain mill... And when you see how physically demanding it can be to grind your own wheat you will understand why! We're hoping that one of these days Rob will get inspired to hook this WonderMill up to an old stationary bike and send the kids out for "bike rides" in the morning so we can have freshly ground wheat for bread everyday! --- SUPPORT THIS CHANNEL --- $5 - http://bit.ly/2mRYEd4 $10 - http://bit.ly/2Deg0Xx $20 - http://bit.ly/2rjHqtM --- BOOKS --- Essential Rainwater Harvesting: A Guide to Home-Scale System Design: https://newsociety.ca/books/e/essen...

Blacksmithing a Machete from an Old Lawnmower Blade in a Homemade Forge | Start to Finish

Register now for the first of it's kind, Building your Permaculture Property Global Summit: https://www.mypermacultureproperty.... We love when Adam from @Bohemian Garage comes around because we always get a great lesson in Blacksmithing when he does! We also love that so many of his projects are made from 'waste' materials that he upcycles and turns into art. The forge he is using in this video, for example, is entirely homemade (for under $200!) Last week Adam showed us how to made tongs from an old truck spring, and this week he makes a machete from a lawnmower blade! Adam is an incredibly multitalented human - blacksmithing is just a hobby for him but he makes some truly innovative and beautiful pieces!
