The man behind richsoil.com and permies.com is Paul Wheaton, I believe. Have a listen to his several interviews with Jack Spirko at thesurvivalpodcast.com; I think you will be stoked! (sorry, can't help but make a pun :-^ )
I haven't built a rocket stove yet, but I have built a couple of "hugelkultur" beds (aka, 'woody beds') and am quite happy with the results after only two years.
Practicing permaculture techniques has changed my life more drastically than Dr. Paul's ideas and speeches ... that's saying something!
