Learn What The Permaculture Zones Are This A Free Infographic

Learning the permaculture zones can be intimidating. There never seems to be an easy down to earth explanation about permaculture. I have never seen a Permaculture for dummies. If there was I would buy it right now. For Infographic Monday’s I thought I would share one on the 5 permaculture zones. No long mysterious explanations here. You can check out the interview I did with Paul Wheaton for a bit more.  Also, the Permaculture Playing cards are a great resource.  I found this infographic at Afristar. They have a ton of great free resources.

I saw recently that Paul Wheatons Permaculture playing cards have been updated. I never got around to doing a proper review before. Time to rectify that. If you have happened to listen to our earlier podcasts you will know that we used to read one permaculture playing card.  Couch Potato Mikes organizing system failed though.

I’m sure all of you know what permaculture is right? No? Google defines it as such:

 

per·ma·cul·ture
ˈpərməˌkəlCHər/
noun
  1. the development of agricultural ecosystems intended to be sustainable and self-sufficient.

Which is a wholly lacking term. Geoff Lawton defines it as a design science. Learning permaculture allows you to design systems, like garden, in a more holistic way. I’m a permaculture fan more so than an expert. Getting a deck actually taught me a lot.

Dual Homestead

Dual Homestead is the new project David Nash from The Shepherd School and I are working on. We both are big DIY advocates. That might be where our similarities end though.

Have you ever wanted to drop everything and leave the rat-race?
Everyone has….
Nobody does….
UNTIL NOW….
Meet David and James, two Tennessee Preppers carving out a homestead with virtually no budget, no support, and no backing down.
Both are rugged individualists,
Experts in their fields,
But they have widely different knowledge, skills, attitudes, and goals.
Can a Punk Anarchist dedicated to green living coexist with a gun toting ultra conservative?
Can an overweight bookworm keep up with a crossfit disciple?
Can they do the impossible without killing each other?
Meet James, owner of Survivalpunk.com
James came to prepping from his experience as a homeless teen , thrives on a paleo diet, is deeply involved with sustainable living, comes to the homestead to get in touch with Nature and become food self-reliant .
David is a former Marine and author of several preparedness related materials, his company, Shepherd School has trained firearm instructors for the past decade. His work as a professional emergency manager showed him how fragile the system is and his goal is to prepare a defensible off grid homestead to protect his family in the event of a catastrophic societal collapse…
Before they build they have to demolish the remnants of the former occupants…
James wants to recycle to materials to make a mobile tiny house; Dave just wants to blow it up…
How will they decide what to do, How to do it, and what compromises, hacks, and DIY tricks will they have to use to carve a farm out of the forest…

Dual Homestead

Dual Homestead Project

I’ve talked about going off grid recently but have not shared many details. Today I’ll talk about it a bit more and share some pictures and videos with you. I just got back from two days out at Dual Homestead with some friends. We got a ton of work done out there. A ton more needs done. I’m tired and sunburned. Seeing the progress though is a great. When I first saw the land I was staggered by all that needs  done to it. We will truly be carving a life from the land. While not perfect the land had many great properties working for it. So let’s talk a bit more about the project and how you can stay up to date with Dual Homestead.

Join James and Mike From Survivalpunk today as we Discuss National Preparedness Month. The guys share their thoughts on the Fiskars splitting axe. Read the article 6 reasons to stockpile blankets. Mike reads 19 life hacks to know in a catastrophe. This week on Nutrition Punk we have a funny article that’s been going around. 17 things to know before dating an athletic girl.


National Preparedness Month

National Preparedness month created by  FEMA to spread personal preparedness. To me it’s a month-long celebration of being a prepper. It’s also a great time to take stock of what you have and what you are lacking. Many things need yearly inspections. Checking your food preps for out of dates. Ensuring your car is winter ready. Bug Out Bags need are customized for the season. For all the things you need to  check once a year I like to do it in September for National Preparedness Month. The wild edible of the week is Crowberry. Five of Diamonds, Wind and berms is the permaculture minute of the week from the Permaculture Playing Cards from Paul Wheaton.
