13 Years Living Off the Land - Man Shares REAL Homestead Experience
 
07:17
Peter from TreeEater Farm & Nursery (http://treeeaternursery.com/) in BC shares the challenges and lessons learned from his experience earning a living off the land for 13 years with his partner Magdalene. Peter moved to a piece of land in British Columbia's Gulf Islands as an idealistic 22-year old who wanted to save the world and reduce his environmental footprint by growing his own food, building his own shelter, and producing his own fibres for clothes. Magdalene joined him a few years later. To make this homesteading project financially viable, the couple has had to experiment with different revenue streams, including community supported agriculture (CSA) vegetable box programs, hand forged tools, meat animals, dairy cows, and selling fruit and nut trees, as well as plenty of off-farm work as well. After a steep and labour-intensive learning curve, Peter has realized that living off the land can be very expensive, that it can be difficult to earn an income from agricultural products — especially if your land isn't situated in an area with a market for your product nearby, and that living off the land requires a lot of infrastructure & maintenance — all of which costs time and money. And they aren't even trying to be off grid. It was refreshing to get such an honest look behind the scenes of what appears to be a utopian lifestyle: living in a hand built timber frame home with a cozy wood stove, and eating fruit and nuts from your own island orchard's trees, and to know there's quite a big financial and physical struggle to make it all happen.

How To Protect Your Survival Garden
 
06:10
For centuries our society knew how to grow a garden and crops, raise cattle, and survive by cooking, preserving, and thriving off of them. However, by and large those days are gone. Most people in our society today don't know the first thing about growing a garden, raising a chicken, canning vegetables, or baking a loaf of bread from scratch. If you know how to do even some of these things, then congratulations, you are well on your way. If you do not, it's not your fault, this what our complex society has stolen from you. However, it's time to learn! During World War II, every American family was encouraged to plant a "victory garden" to help ease the food shortages that existed because of the war effort. Today, we do not face a food shortage because of a war effort, but we do face a very serious food shortage. Disasters throughout the world, decreases in bee pollination, increasing oil prices, collapsing economies, ethanol production, and many other reasons have lead to the highest food prices in history and those high prices are only an indicator that supply is falling and demand is skyrocketing. However, during this food shortage the government is not encouraging you to plant a "collapse garden," but that doesn't mean it's not a good idea or even a life essential idea. It is unlikely that the majority of you will be able to survive entirely off of your own gardens, just as most of you will be unable to survive off your food stockpiles. We generally don't have enough land or enough time to garden full-time. However, having a garden and a food stockpile will help you supplement the food supplies that may or may not be available to you in stores during a future collapse. How do you get started with a collapse garden? I recommend the following steps to getting started with a collapse garden and learning the skills that our complex society of retail stores has stolen from us: 1. Buy non-hybrid, open pollinated heirloom seeds for your stockpile. To be sustainable in the long-term, you must be able to harvest seeds from the crops you grown during one year to plant the next year. However, most hybrid seeds that you buy in the store will not produce seeds that will grow again. To circumvent this, you must buy seeds marked "non-hybrid," "open pollinated," or "heirloom." Growing these seeds will allow you to collect the seeds from what you grow and plant them again the next year, and the year after that... I recently purchased two "Heirloom Seed Combo Packs" from Emergency Essentials. These are great seed packs that have at least a 4 year shelf life and contain literally thousands of seeds for a very reasonable price. A Google search for "survival seeds" will provide you with a wealth of vendors selling long term storage seed kits. 2. Start learning how to garden. The best way to do this is to literally start gardening now when you can still afford to make mistakes. Grow a few beans, peas, potatoes, etc. in a small patch of your yard. Read books like "Gardening When it Counts" by Steve Solomon. Watch YouTube videos on how to garden. Talk to friends who garden. The skills you learn now might be invaluable in the future! 3. Start learning and practicing how to cook from scratch and preserve your harvest! Having an abundance of crops will not do you much good if you don't know how to cook with them and preserve them for use all year. Learn how to can, dehydrate, grind, and cook all your crops. 4. Consider where you will grow a larger garden if you ever find yourself in a position where gardening is your only source of food. Most of us don't have acres upon acres of land upon which we can grow food. It's time to think about family and friends who have land and invite those people into your catastrophe network. Remember, their land is valuable to you, and you are valuable to them because you have thought through catastrophe survival, you have stockpiled seeds, food, first aid supplies, etc. Local food supplies will become the very most important aspect to a new economy following economic collapse or a major catastrophe. By preparing now, you will ensure that you will be successful in a new economic paradigm.

The Permaculture Food Forest - Plant Once- Harvest for a Lifetime. How It Works.

No Weeding- No Watering- No Pesticides- No GMOs- No Fertilizers- Ever! How the Secret Garden of Survival Works. Imagine a food garden that you only have to plant once in your life-time, that takes up very little space, that will provide food for you and your family for the next 30 years; that can grow five times more food per square foot than traditional gardening; and where you never have to weed, never have to water- never have to use fertilizers and never have to use pesticide-- ever. And the whole garden is disguised to look like overgrown underbrush, so that anyone passing by would not even dream that you had food growing there! Interested? That is what Rick Austin is going to talk to you about. …It’s the essential homestead and prepper food source that can provide you with all the fruit, vegetables, herbs, nuts and berries, that you and your family can consume in a year. Find out how Rick Austin took a half-acre southern slope in North Carolina and turned it from red clay into a “food forest” in one year. Rick Austin is known as the Survivalist Gardener, and is a preparedness, homesteading and off grid living expert. He is the author of Secret Garden of Survival-How to Grow a Camouflaged Food Forest which is now the #1 Best Selling book in Garden Design. Rick is also the author of the Secret Greenhouse of Survival, How to Build the Ultimate Homestead and Prepper Greenhouse. Rick is a nationally recognized speaker on survival preparedness and has been featured on National Geographic Channel’s Doomsday Castle, Doomsday Preppers, the documentary film Beyond Off Grid, as well as in Newsweek, American Survival Guide, Prepper &Shooter, Prepare Magazine, and in Mother Earth News (three times).

Urban Agroecoloy: 6,000 lbs of food on 1/10th acre - Urban Homestead - Urban Permaculture
 
08:39
Go to https://FoodAbundance.com to join the Food Abundance movement. Over 6,000 pounds of food per year, on 1/10 acre located just 15 minutes from downtown Los Angeles. The Dervaes family grows over 400 species of plants, 4,300 pounds of vegetable food, 900 chicken and 1,000 duck eggs, 25 lbs of honey, plus seasonal fruits throughout the year. From 1/10th of an acre, four people manage to get over 90% of their daily food and the family reports earnings of $20,000 per year (AFTER they eat from what is produced). This is done without the use of the expensive & destructive synthetic chemicals associated with industrial mono-cropping, while simultaneously improving the fertility and overall condition of the land being used to grow this food on. Scaled up to an acre, that would equal $200,000 per year! To follow the Dervaes and their Urban Homesteading activites, you can find them at http://urbanhomestead.org Urban and near-urban farming can be highly productive, causing whatever size of land you have to work with to produce with more abundance. It is time to solve hunger worldwide, through creating local food abundance.... Anyone can do it, once you learn how. To join the Food Abundance movement, go to https://FoodAbundance.com

The best type of survival garden
 
06:03
This is what I believe to be the best type of survival garden. Grow like nature does! Permaculture is the way to go! Nature knows best, it grows without help from farmers. This garden is LOW maintenance once you get it going. Makes it hard for the untrained eye to spot from far off or in a plane(as the tall trees will blend in and look like a wooded area) Start your survival garden today! This garden will look like a large circle from above with many smaller circles in the center of each larger one. Here is how to start -Plant your large growing trees like nut or fruit trees in the middle as your first circle. This will be your smallest (inner) circle. -Next, plant your vine and bush layer in a larger circle around those trees. -The next larger circle on the outside of the vine bush layer should be your herb layer. This can be medicinal and cooking/culinary herbs. Rosemary, thyme, Echinacea, Valerian, etc -The last and finally the LARGEST circle on the outside of all the others is your ground cover. This fine tunes everything and brings it altogether to look nature and not separated. Here are a few things you could plant.

Quick-maturing Plants: 5 Fast Growing Vegetables to Try
 
07:08
As vegetables are harvested, gaps will inevitably appear in your garden. However, leaving bare soil exposes your garden to weeds and can make it more prone to erosion, plus it means your garden isn’t being as productive as it could be. Fill those gaps with quick-growing vegetables and you can sneak in a useful extra crop before the end of the year - or even before your fall crops are planted. In this video we identify 5 fast-maturing vegetables to try in your summer garden and provide simple tips to help you enjoy your harvest as quickly as possible.

sunchokes aka jerusalem artichokes - highest calories per acre and easiest to grow
 
11:37
http://www.permies.com Sunchokes (Jerusalem Artichokes) can be harvested all winter. No canning. No drying. No root cellar. Once established they typically require zero care. They taste a little like water chestnuts. When cooked they taste like potatoes. When cooked a long time, they become sweet. Helen Atthowe http://www.veganicpermaculture.com of Stevensville, Montana, likes to eat them raw or mix them with other root crops and do a roast with rosemary and tamari. Norris Thomlinson of Portland, Oregon, talks about how he ate about a pound a day all winter. He kept a pot of them cooking on the woodstove to help convert the inulin to sugar. Without this technique, you might fart a lot and call these "fartichokes". A small patch produced about a hundred pounds last year. He also talks about how his chickens would eat about a pound a day. Michael Pilarski shares that thick stalks are indicators of lots of tubers. He also says that sunchokes make for the fastest privacy hedges. Kelly Ware of Bigfork, Montana shows how she integrated a patch of sunchokes with her kids' sandbox. The sunchokes appear to really like the sand! Kelly points out that sunchokes are popular for the raw food diet. And she mentions how sunchokes make a good flour as a gluten free flour substitute. She mentions how it the dried canes make for a good bamboo substitute. Jen Davis of Portland, Oregon has a huge patch even though she doesn't like the flavor. She thinks they make a good survival food - just in case. Anne Trudeau shares a recipe of roasted sunchokes with lemon.

Our favorite tomato variety: http://amzn.to/2b9Lrbk Learn how to get 50-80 lbs of tomatoes from every tomato plant. Planting a garden can be a lot of fun but get a harvest is really what it is all about. Follow these steps to dramatically improve your tomato harvest. 1. Buy the right plants for your area. Talk with the Master Gardener association or university agriculture extension in your area. 2. Lay plants on their side so the tips will grow upwards. 3. Dig a trench and bury all but the top 3 inches. 4. Add 1/4-1/2 cup slow release fertilizer, like cotton seed meal, Osmocote, etc., to the trench. 5. Build a 5 foot high 2 foot diameter cage around each plant. 6. Cover cage on the sides and on top with "floating row cover" (a light polyester material) or plastic to protect from wind and weather until plants are large and strong and weather is warm. 7. Weekly apply water soluble fertilizer, like Rapid Grow or Miracle Grow, through a hose-end fertilizer applicator on the leaves. 8. When plants have set their first cluster of fruit, side dress with two to three tablespoons of ammonium sulfate and water well. 9. Pick tomatoes when 30% ripe to avoid the birds from eating them. 10. Do not put tomatoes in the refrigerator. Keep on the kitchen counter.

Potato Growing Hack to Double Harvests
 
02:49
potatoes are one of my favorite crops to grow and harvest in my urban garden. Today I am going to show you how I grow my potatoes and double my harvest without having to increase the number of grow bags or space needed. I start my potatoes in grow bags in the garage usually 4 weeks before the last frost usually in early April. I fill the bags with 1/2 potting mix and 1/2 compost. The compost feeds the plants while the potting mix holds water. I fill them 3/4 the way full. I then toss a whole seed potato in the soil and just cover it completely. If the eyes are large enough I allow some of the eyes to poke above the soil. Those eyes will form the plant. The extra bag is fairly easy to roll down helping to prevent shading the early growth. it is important to start your potatoes as early as you can in order for this method to work. During the day I bring the potatoes out onto the drive way returning them at night until the last frost. Once the threat of frost has passed I put them in the garden area. When the plants are 30cm or 12 inches tall I add more compost and potting soil to mound them. This protects the potatoes growing below from greening which ruins them and can cause irritation if eaten. I don't fill the bags however all of the way though and you will see why in a minute. Before I get to the tip to double the potato harvest I would like to speak about potatoes in general. Most seed potatoes you can purchase such as these Rosemarie, which are pink and Purple Magic are determinant varieties. What that means is you plant them and they put on one crop all at the same time. The rosemarie potatoes are a faster producing than the purple magic helping me spread the harvests out. I should be able to harvest these from Mid-July through to late September. In order to spread out the harvest and double up on crops I have done a few things. The first is doubling up on the crop I get per bag. These two varieties are determinant so the first plant I just hilled will only produce one crop below where we hilled up the soil. Meaning you can plant another seed potato above the first effectively allowing you to double up your plants per container and hence the harvest. So when hilling I don't fill the bags all the way and plant the second seed potato again with some eyes pointing up. After these plants grow I will top off the containers. I dont do this with all of my potato bags. In fact I chose these 11 litre or 3 gallon 100 percent recycled fabric pots so that I can harvest them earlier than the ones I doubled up on. As you all know I love to spread my harvest out. It is time to harvest the double bags when the second plant begins to die back. This method can be done if you are growing your potatoes in raised beds or rows. Simply hill your potatoes and plant the new seeds between the plants.

Pat's smallholding, Ourganics Evolving Systems, features a large polytunnel, a flood garden and a forest garden, all of which she harvests and sells to the local community. The local spring is used to water the crops which then joins the River Bride and a small caravan and yurt offer a place to stay, providing extra income. Ourganics Evolving Systems is a real example of how off-grid living is a labour of love where work and play are interchangeable and a job doesn't mean paying rent, but living a richer life. ------ Narrated by international lawyer and author of 'Eradicating Ecocide', Polly Higgins - http://pollyhiggins.com Produced by Permaculture People | http://permaculturepeopleuk.tumblr.com for Permaculture magazine | http://permaculture.co.uk Logo designed by HIP Permaculture | http://hippermaculture.com Camera Mihali Moore | http://mihalimoore.co.uk For more information about Pat and Ourganics please visit: http://www.peasantevolution.co.uk/members_ourganics.html ------ Living with the Land | The Films Living with the Land' is a series of nine short online films free to view and distribute.
