  • Joel Salatin Polyface Farm

    Joel Salatin of Polyface farm and Wranglerstar got together at the Mother Earth News fair to discuss a few of the challenges small farmers and homesteaders might encounter while getting started in the farming business. One problem with small farms is how to make them profitable. Big agriculture has nearly destroyed the small family farm. Joel Salatin has bucked the odds and teaches a practical and profitable method of farming that can be duplicated on a shoe string budget. Joel's latest book "Folks, This Ain't Normal" is written in Salatin's entertaining and informative style that reflects his dirt under the fingernails experience and is filled with mischievous humor. Look for Joel's new book due in September titled "Field of Farmers". http://www.polyfacefarms.com/

    Tour a closed-loop water system where one critterapos;s wastes become anotherapos;s food. Inside a steamy greenhouse, Jeremy Roth of Aprovecho Centerapos;s Aquaculture Project shows us fish tanks containing tilapia just like you might order in a restaurant. Water from the tanks is pumped through troughs where pond plants take in the nutrients from the fish. Plant material is then returned to feed the fish in their tanks. The nutrient-rich water is also diverted to nourish veggies like chard, tomatoes, and water chestnuts rooted in a shallow gravel bar. In this cycle, aquaponics yields generous quantities of high quality protein from a very small footprint. Episode 242. [aprovecho.net] Peak Moment TV exists because of viewers like you.

    "When we are able to successfully work with local ecologies to meet our needs, we do the Earth a better service. And we are becoming empowered in our own lives." Natural builder Chris Foraker gives a tour of work-in-progress at Aprovecho Center, Oregon. The structure's clay, straw, sand, and wood come primarily from their own land. Much of the work was done by amateurs using techniques that donapos;t take industrial levels of technology. Aprovecho builders pioneered using small diameter flat-sided poles to replace dimensional lumber - a technique accepted into the local building code. Chris dreams of reintroducing "regional vernacular architectures." This building beautifully expresses that dream. Episode 239.

    The Amish keep surprising their technology-programmed neighbors by keeping alive ways and beliefs that many modern Americans wish they could recapture. Mennonite historian John Ruth takes us sympathetically into the Amish mindset in this 1975 documentary. An updated version of this film is available on DVD through Amazon.com

    (A viewer commented: "If or when the economy collapses, the Amish will just continue to live their normal lives. These people know how to live.")

    The Gerson Miracle examines many of the elements of the Gerson Therapy, explaining why we are so ill and how we have in our grasp the power to recover our health without expensive, toxic or mutilating treatments, using the restorative forces of our own immune systems. Even the most advanced cases of cancer can be successfully reversed using this method. While the results seem miraculous, the real "miracle" lies within our own body and its healing processes.

    Documental de la terapia Gerson, que incluye datos importantes sobre la dieta, las toxinas y la forma de vivir más sanos. Involucra varios manifiestos de sobrevivientes al cáncer. Muy recomendable para quienes estén interesados en buscar la verdad sobre el sistema de salud mundial.

They also test and suggest improvements to stoves from developing countries, aiming to reduce smoke to help children's respiratory health. Fred Colgan shows specialized stove parts and assembly jigs he ships to developing countries, where local people construct rocket stoves from mostly local materials. Appropriate technology at its best!
