Mindarie Regional Council Earth Carers Training Program March 2016

Special thanks to Charles of Terra Perma Design for sharing this. Since I prefer summaries I’ll highlight the important bits in green and underline them. I’m going to do my best to include as many resources and other good stuff. All in all I’ve had a lot of hope restored as I thought nobody else cared to make that extra effort but there are good people out there and lots of good things happening. Keep an eye out on their…

Art of the Teese – Burlesque and Fetish by Dita von Teese

Profitable Permaculture Farms – From Homescale to 100 Acre Scale Farm … thanks Heleen

You could be saving money towards your permaculture farm for the next 20 years, but if you can’t be sure that it will be profitable and self-sustaining, then what’s the point? You’ll just burn through your savings and fall back onto the grindstone, feeling disappointed. I regularly find people who complain about the lack of proven models in permaculture, and, to be…
