Starting our Permaculture Journey on a Homestead in the Hills
![covers-01.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmdoSmWwtERJdC85ssyvnfHy4dfEtkYY1ojJN7dqmvMUJF/covers-01.jpg)
<center>**This post is about how I decided to get into permaculture on a homestead near the hills of Kodaikanal, located in South India.**</center>

<center>As 2016 came to a close, I'd finished my work at the Sharanalaya School and didn't have anything else to keep me occupied. I had a few options to consider and was at a sort of crossroads in my life. I was still considering an environmental design master's degree but also noticed that I had spent the entire year doing my own brand of eco design to keep me afloat. The master's degree would get me added recognition, but was it really necessary?
 My clients never asked for my qualifications as my work spoke for itself. There are also cheaper and better ways to acquire first hand knowledge on environmental design techniques, so is it truly sustainable to move to a different country and pay whopping tuition fees for the privilege to learn? I was also inspir

Hi Steemit, I'm an 18 year old Vegetable Gardening YouTuber!
<html>
<p>Hello Steemit!<br>
</p>
<p>With huge thanks to <a href="https://steemit.com/@pennsif">@pennsif,</a> I am now a part of this exciting community. My name is Huw Richards and I am from Wales in the UK (not England). I love sport, outdoor activities and technology and I am very keen to participate in such a positive network of people. In all honesty I am a bit skeptical about cryptocurrencies but I am always open to new things.</p>
<p><img src="https://i.imgsafe.org/92/92d680a5ac.jpeg" width="450" height="360"/></p>
<p>I like to think of myself as an entrepreneur. School frustrated me because I couldnโ€™t spend time on what my stubborn mind thought was important, and the freedom I have now to follow my dreams is incredible.&nbsp;</p>
<p>When I was 12 (2011) a friend of mine was making gaming videos on YouTube and had around 200 views, so I decided to make videos about gardening as I had grown up with that and outdoor homesteading life thanks to my parents. About 8 years on and my channel has over 11 mil

Money Grows On Trees
People ask "What do you do?" Well....from the system's perspective I am a "gardener" and "Inn Keeper" at The Lavender Inn in Ojai, California. That is what it says under my US citizenship Social Security number paycheck.

People also ask me "why don't you have land in Ojai and your own farm?" The answer is the ventura county systems have to change. So that is what we are transforming and we will one day. One seed at a time.

People also ask me "why don't you and your kids just move?" The answer is the ventura family court system. I submitted 173 pages to the supreme court quoting the Dalai Lama and our "We the People" Declaration of Independence in  October 2016.  I emailed the UN, EU, White House, New York times and Washington Post. The systems are broken so we are creating new ones that make these old ones obsolete.

We continue to make big moves and transform locally and globally with every meditational breath. We never give up.

Ultimately we are obviously here in Ojai for a reason amd we trust the univer

Natural Building: Live Edge Siding, Beautiful & Ecological
![IMG_0483.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmREsturw1yu4PCXZFvLPYJJHwnm1edHMp19ZUs3ngipH2/IMG_0483.jpg)

## When it comes to natural building materials, the most obvious and common example is wood. 

Being a truly amazing and versatile resource able to replicate itself through photosynthesis and boasting an amazing diversity of uses, it's no wonder we've relied so heavily upon wooden construction techniques throughout history. Historically, large timbers were used as the vertical posts and others for framing members. Many buildings in Europe and North America highlight huge timbers that don't have modern counterpart; we've cut all the primary growth down.

With the modern invention of saw mills, fossil fuels and an influx of cheap unskilled labor in the work forces, we've veered away from custom homes where highly skilled housewrights would fell trees for specific framing members and knew how to work word. We've replaced this with mechanized and standardized practices like stick framing (think 2x4 studs under

Inside Indigo Crossroads
Not everyone that shows up here on Stephen Bennett's farm sees the vision of Indigo Crossroads. Folks do their best to get by out here in the forest of the Ozark mountains. Raising Lakeland Terrier pups is our family's economic engine at this step of our path. It is rewarding work and running the marketing end of it sure has taught me a great deal. The core group of Indigo Crossroads, (Tab, Bri, and myself), currently cover guidance, management, and final decision making as to community affairs. Needless to say, raising pups here at Theodosia Lakeland Kennels is great , but it gets even greater as the dream we hold as a community expands much farther than the horse fences.

My Top 5 2017 Posts Challenge: Spirituality, Health, Steem, Hugelkultur, Raised Beds, and Growing Systems
I stumbled upon Steemit just this last October. I was made aware of this crazy platform from a friend @themyrrhmaid. At first, I was hesitant to jump in. It was an intriguing concept but I couldn't quite grasp its depth and potential on my initial inspection. I had plans to attempt building an audience on YouTube and Medium revolving around my homestead and permaculture work. But once the weight, power, and potential of Steem hit me, I chose to abandon everything else and dive all in here. It took some time to learn the ropes and plug into the amazing homesteading community, [Homesteaders Online](http://www.homesteaders-online.com), but once I did, everything started clicking. I found so many great people doing amazing things all over the world. @mountainjewel being one of them, who nominated me to participate in @rocking-dave's challenge [your-2017-top-5](https://steemit.com/my2017top5/@rocking-dave/join-my-first-steem-challenge-contest-your-2017-top-5-and-win-sbds).

Why I love Ireland
Talking about Ireland on steemit is not to make 300$ posts. The trending has a 20$ post on first position it shows that we here for the craic not for the cash.

http://irishpost.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/irish-lads-talking.jpg

 I won't talk about Ireland the way you are used to, throughout photos of some cliffs of the west coast or celtic crosses in a sheep field... this is not a post about a 1 week trip around the island, I lived 5 years over there mainly in Cork but since I lived in a school bus with my kids and partner, we moved around a lot. This post is not for Irish people either most of what I talk about here they already know I also would like to say that I ain't Irish, I got to Ireland from Australia (I'm not australian either) me and my partner decided to go in 2008 when everyone in Ireland was going to Australia because of the market crash.

<center><img src="http://danzigercartoons.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/10/dancart4121.jpg"/></center>

 I love Ireland for plenty of different reasons,

Dried Lambsquarter and Magenta Spreen Leaves for Wintertime Vitamin and Mineral Supplements
As I walked the gardens during the summer and especially the fall I was on the lookout for food I could put up for the winter. Oftentimes my favorite harvests come from wild food including weeds and cultivated plants that become wild and run rampant throughout the garden or property. 

## <center>In addition to staple veggies, herbs, fruits and nuts I also added a new category to my larder - dried nutritionally dense leaves for supplemental vitamin and minerals in my diet.</center>
<br />

As all temperate climate homesteaders know, wintertime is the time when we are lacking fresh food, so we spend much of the season harvesting, processing and storing food for wintertime consumption. The challenge is putting up enough food to meet our dietary needs throughout the winter.

I want to share with you how I listened and learned from the garden how I could meet my wintertime nutritional nee

I dance for the organic greening of the Earth DANCECLIP
In the next song, I danced today 

*I danced for the organic greening of the Earthโ€ฆ*
I see gardens everywhere.  
Trees being planted.  
I see a whole nation of Trees who were cut down, 
who were born humans and I see them as my friends and 
family.
**Our roots still growing,** 
we are still in the forest and 
we have grown back our branches.
We have the mycelium as our internet 
and we are downloading the data in the form of dances of 
the **organic greening of the Earth.**

*I dance for the Trees* 
and I hold their hands 
as we are growing and being and hereโ€ฆ
**Now**

I dance for the **Earth** to be restored 
and for the **Elementals** to please stay.
I dance for **permaculture gardens** to grow 
and for us to eat organic food.
I dance for us to preserve our *magic*
because we only eat *organic.*
I dance for 
*the organic Greening of the Earth.*
I know this will happen 
as I have danced for this dream for **9 years!**

I am Nomvula the Greeninglady โ€“ all the way from South

First seeds started for 2018: The earliest bird gets the earliest tomato
![IMG_1765.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmNoXwaCFuSvqBsauK3tbtwVWYXw9rPUPghg37aTHnfVvs/IMG_1765.jpg)

### I couldn't wait to get a head start on the growing season. Now that the sun is staying around a bit longer there's enough light to support growth.

---
Last year I grew peppers very successfully in 5 gallon grow bags, so I figured I'd start them early and possibly be picking my first pepper in May or June, when I usually first plant them out in the garden.

I had a bit of trouble with Tomatoes in the bags, as I planted indeterminates. So I'm testing out an early heirloom determinate that's more compact and should do better for container growing.

[Clear Pink Early](http://www.tomatogrowers.com/CLEAR-PINK-EARLY/productinfo/2416/)
> This compact plant becomes loaded with long trusses of perfectly round, smooth beautiful clear pink tomatoes. The flavor is very good, sweet yet tangy, making this a wonderful addition to an early harvest. Heirloom variety of Russian origin. Determinate. 58 days.

SETTING UP A NEW HIVE USING A NUC, "NUCLEUS" OF BEES
**As promised, here is how I set up a new hive of bees, using a NUC, and my own beekeeping practice.**

This is a new, ten frame Langstroth hive, with a screen bottom board for better ventilation.  It was painted over the winter and allowed to off gas long before spring, when the NUC, or Nucleus, of bees were picked up from the supplier. 

The larger box on the bottom is called a deep, the smaller boxes, not shown here, are called suppers.  Suppers are not needed when a new hive is just established.   Suppers are for the expansion of honey stores, and some brood,  after the hive has had time to build up. 

  ![new hive.png](https://steemitimages.com/DQmQPSNBe3BCmNb4hX2aQWYWdURDMVhx5SrncdvsqyZMw1n/new%20hive.png)

Each of these NUC's have approximately 10,400 bees, and one queen in them.  You have to order them in January, for pick up in April.  

![Nukes on the dock.png](https://steemitimages.com/DQmVmctayHC9LiDH64DbeWNN4jdFSuWcCS3nDyaA1FD9oyU/Nukes%20on%20the%20dock.png)

Homesteaders & Preppers on steemit - the We are Sparta edition - 300 reached - v12 [12 Jan '18]
<div class="pull-right">https://pennsif.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/homesteaders-and-preppers-on-steemit-454x278.jpg</div>

#### We made it!  There are now over 300 homesteaders and preppers on steemit.<br>

#### In fact with the surge of new people joining steemit in the last few weeks we have raced through 300 and now stand at 308. That's an increase of 30 from the last list less than 3 weeks ago.<br>

#### One thousand by the end of the year anyone...?<br>

---

There are a whole bunch of fascinating and fantastic homesteaders and preppers that have joined recently. Some of which I have already met and some of which I am still to have the pleasure of meeting.

I am going to give a big shout-out to one particular new homesteader, permaculturalist and YouTuber who has just joined steemit.

That is **@huwsnursery** :

HERSTORY, Earth Nation, & Indigo Crossroads

INDIGO CROSSROADS: We are an eco-village project forming on 80 acres in Southern Missouri, working towards a sustainable off-grid lifestyle.
https://www.facebook.com/groups/141497606523945/
  
With some awareness of Herstory, as opposed to History we can gain an alternative perspective that most are not taught. One fact that I have found is the first words... "We the people..." This is a perspective brought through by the Iroquois Confederacy, who were in the room for its writing by the way. The definition of most, if not all the names of the tribes on this continent, meant for example "we the people of that hill over there." From this we can extrapolate that when the constitution was being written, the meaning was not restricted to whites only. It was all inclusive. At the start of this nation, the leaders knew that prejudice was widespread, just as was the narrow views of religion. The elite were the only ones who

Comfrey tea maker - the result.

A little while ago I posted a DIY about how to make a [Comfrey Compost Tea Maker](https://steemit.com/gardening/@ligayagardener/comfrey-compost-tea-maker).

This jar of dark black liquid is the resulting fertilizer.

Permaculture, Homesteading, and Community Building // An Intro to Unusual Edible Plants (Part Three)
Hi everyone! I recently got some unusual edible plant seeds from a seed swap hosted by OAEC (The Occidental Arts and Ecology Center). I did some research about these plants before sowing the seeds, and want to share that information with you today. I love discovering new edible plants, especially perennial vegetables, that are different from your typical tomatoes, cucumbers, lettuce, ect that you usually find in a home garden. I get to grow plants with unique flavors that I've never experienced before, and most of the time these plants are much more resilient than the typical annual veggies that are grown.

Permaculture Primer
Generally speaking, the principles of permaculture can be applied to a variety of disciplines, ranging from land stewardship and ecology to smaller scale applications such as homesteading and backyard gardening. On the largest scale, permaculture can help improve processes in commercial farming and the cultivation of food forests, by employing several fundamental practices. The methodsย involved seek to imitate nature by employing specific designs that incorporate a variety of elements, aiming to maximize landscape potential by encouraging biodiversity, working with the landscape, and utilizing resources efficiently.

The average American yard consists of mostly grass, some weeds, flowers, a few trees, shrubs, and possibly a small vegetable garden. In more affluent regions of the country, there are most likely going to be larger impervious areas (such as driveways, paved walkways, underground pools, etc), which are not so conducive to permaculture, but there are still possibilities even in those places.
