ReSkilling for future food independence

Growing Hope

Posted by Nika On November - 18 - 2012

I am brainstorming on how to put together what we have done on our homestead, here on this site and elsewhere into a project that others can become invested in to facilitate a move to the next phase of food production here – a permaculture aquaponics greenhouse.

Stay tuned for more information as the project proceeds.

    Followed a Twitter link to your website. Wife and I live in Placerville, CA at about 2000′. The town and its environs are ideal for permaculture and resiliency. I hope you continue to blog.

    Best Regards,
    George Lowry
