Really cool! I'm a big believer in doing whatever can be done without having to ask permission. (I'm also fine with doing things against "the law" where the so-called law is wrong. That's the root of getting bad laws overturned, after all.) These guys are showing people how to become more independent and self-sufficient -- but not in a "selfish" way, in a more cooperative way. Great stuff!

TV should show us more like this and less elitist propaganda. Otherwise, TV becomes irrelevant over time as the offliners die off.

What is begun in anger, ends in shame.

This is a great

House design. Especially for those that live in hurricane or Tornado areas. My wife and I have been seriously considering one of these. We actually have been talking with other family members about designing a four dome community that would be built in a north,east,south,west position with a dome greenhouse in the center connecting all four.

What a great idea! Wish I had tought of something like that...

Still willing to take on open minded interns, or offer advice what little advice we can for free, or give 200 tilapia fry to any church, food bank or charitable organization that will give the food from their system to the needy.
Glad to see people looking at ways to take care of themselves.

Private property

You may call this an old school view. I believe this is a private property issue: one should have the rights to do, what one sees fit, with their private property. If no harm comes from one's actions, then why should any person, law, or bureaucracy have a right to tell us what we can and cannot do with/on private property?

+1 for very useful INFO,

thanks for sharing, = sustenance & community.

It takes time to get this

It takes time to get this done, but I think its worth it. Good to see that they are doing this without ANY subsidies.


Visiting this website has made my day!

Thanks for posting

One day the whole world will work like this!

Thank you for posting , aquaponics is fascinating

aquaponics is fascinating, I would love to get the right design to set up a aquaponic system. I have seen the barrel ponic systems, they are too small and the larger commercial systems cost thousands. One of the major problems with urban farming is the zoning regulations that make much of it illegal.

Can you elaborate on this?

I'm very interested in the topic. Why would there be zoning regulations against urban farming? I mean is there any reason they couldn't be overturned?

Why? Good question

generally the larger the city the more city regulations restrict any activity they can, check this out:

You can get food stamps, but heaven forbid you actually try to grow your own food. Here in Grand Rapids Michigan they tried to pass a ordinance to allow people to have chickens at their home, it was voted down. The excuse was that chickens would attract rodents. I have a 18' 34' swimming pool I would love to convert to a aquaculture or a aquaponic system, but most all agriculture in residential zoning is prohibited. The ability to do business at a micro level would really help the economy but, licensing, zoning plus a myriad of federal, state and local regulations prevents it.

Thanks for the info!

I can understand the chickens / rodents excuse, but what about agriculture? What about aquaponics and you converting your pool? I mean the link you posted seemed the problem was with the lady putting veggies in in the front yard for aesthetics reasons, but if all this is in the back yard all agriculture should be fine, right?

Screw their laws

grow all the dam food you want. No Government boob is going to tell me I cant have a garden or whatever. There are regulations because they want everyone dependent on them. If your dependent then your obedient.

I have two apple trees, grape vines, raspberry bush, garden and only increasing. I would like to see them tell me to stop.

"The more you understand everything, the more you can understand anything."

Government against sustainable living

This woman faced jail time for growing a garden in her front yard!

I saw another one of their

I saw another one of their earlier ones about 6 months ago and I'm very happy you posted this because with all of the info I watch I actually forgot about this. Thanks.

Your welcome
