Brian Fey's answer to What are some tips for building composting toilets
Here are a few common North American goodies that are safe to eat if you find yourself stuck in the wild: Blackberries: Many wild berries are not safe to eat, it’s best to stay away from them. But wild blackberries are 100% safe to eat and easy to recognize. They have red branches that have long thorns similar to a rose, the green leaves are wide and jagged. They are best to find in the spring when their white flowers bloom, they are clustered all around the bush and their flowers have 5 points.
Yesterday we were talking about the great need to transition our agriculture (and our culture for that matter) to be based in systems (or integrated) thinking, rather than the segregated, reductionist monoculture mind set we have today. There’s perhaps no better example of systems-based thinking in practice than a well developed biodiverse ‘forest garden’ (or what is called a food forest in many places). Along with our own Geoff Lawton, Martin Crawford of the UK’s Agroforestry Research Trust is one of the world’s best recognised practitioners of the art. The following video gives us a peek at his work. Martin Crawford's Forest Garden Permaculture Forums, Permaculture Courses, Permaculture Information & News
NodoEspiral | Dedicated to Permaculture Training and Teaching Sustainable Farming Methods | Ethosolutions.org NodoEspiral Offers Permaculture Classes! NodoEspiral is a company dedicated to teaching and forwarding permaculture, a method of ecological design which establishes healthy and natural systems modeled after nature. These systems are developed to create sustainable human settlements and self-perpetuating methods of agriculture as the new standard of sustainable agriculture development for human food provision. permaculture practices are sustainable farming methods modeled after natural ecosystems because nature is already the perfect example of zero-waste, cyclical, sustainable agriculture practices; everything in nature’s cycle gets reused and recycled. If we understand nature and how it works, we can rebuild it to be sustainable and productive again, producing food in ways that many have rarely if ever seen in their lifetime.
Moringa oleifera is the most widely cultivated species of the genus Moringa, which is the only genus in the family Moringaceae. English common names include: moringa, drumstick tree (from the appearance of the long, slender, triangular seed-pods), horseradish tree (from the taste of the roots, which resembles horseradish), ben oil tree or benzoil tree (from the oil which is derived from the seeds). It is a fast-growing, drought-resistant tree, native to the southern foothills of the Himalayas in northwestern India, and widely cultivated in tropical and sub-tropical areas where its young seed pods and leaves are used as a vegetable. Etymology Moringa derives from the Tamil word murungai. Description Moringa oleifera
