Permaculture Techniques For producing Food Naturally and Sustainably
Permaculture as a technique or lifestyle is becoming recognized by many as the means for sustaining the earth and feeding an expanding population. Also it is intelligent planning to have a sustainable food and water supply in the event of a serious long-term emergency. The Prime Directive of Permaculture is the ethical decision to take responsibility for ourselves, our children and our communities. The Three Ethics are Care Of The Earth, Care Of The People and Return or Distribution of Excess.
This Video is a Must See for anyone interested in being intelligently self-sufficient either from a moral viewpoint or a more practical motive of survival in the event of a sooner or later catastrophic event.
This is a long 2 hour presentation that will not bore you. I found it fascinating , educational and the techniques can be applied to a large acreage or to an urban backyard. I am going to follow this technical presentation with two Videos , different families, one a city lot and the other a larger difficult rocky homestead, to show you how these principles were applied. The video contains links to other information you will find helpful.

I am an RN with over 50 years of experience. I still work 3 12 hour shifts a week at a busy hospital. I owe my good health and longevity to good genes and a healthy lifestyle. My Dad was a chef and I very early learned to cook healthy primarily vegetarian foods. I love to garden and grow my own healthy food. Digging in the dirt is both healthful and therapeutic. Good for us and the environment. I hope you enjoy visiting this site and find the information interesting and helpful.
