Interview 1638 – James Corbett Redpills the Permaculture Crowd

Takota Coen of the Building Your Permaculture Property podcast talks to James Corbett about why the permaculture movement needs to wake up to the conspiracy reality before it’s too late. After recommending three reports to help people understand the systems of control that are steering society right now and giving an overview of the coming technocratic neo-feudal biosecurity state, James confronts the canards about overpopulation and the programmed propaganda training the public to desire their own death. Finally, James and Takota talk about solutions and the way forward.

Homestead Paradise: got barren land, boosted it at a profit

Kirsten Dirksen 
1.51M subscribers In the early 90s, Mark and Jen Shepard bought a degraded corn farm in Viola, Wisconsin, and began to slowly convert it from row-crops back to a native oak savanna that would become one of the most productive perennial farms in the country. After 8 years of homesteading in Alaska (arriving just as the Homestead Act was expiring) where they had been forced by low-paying jobs to discover “which trees, shrubs, bushes, and vines we could get food from”, they arrived in the Driftless Area of Wisconsin ready to apply their knowledge of permaculture (“permanent agriculture”). Over the past nearly three decades, Mark has planted an estimated 250,000 trees on the 106-acre farm. The main agroforestry crops are chestnuts, hazelnuts, and apples, followed by walnut, hickory, cherry, and pine (for the nuts). For short-term income, the couple planted annual crops, like grains and asparagus, in alleys between the fruit-and-nut-bearing trees. Cattle, pigs, lambs, turkeys, and chickens act as pest control and free composters as they roam the savannas of the farm. Not content to rely on commercially-produced seeds, Mark does his own breeding to find the best-adapted trees to his region using the method he’s dubbed STUN (Sheer Total Utter Neglect). He plants trees at a higher density than recommended and with as much diversity as possible (at one point they were farming 219 varieties of apples) and then lets pests and disease run their course. He fells diseased trees or those that don’t bear enough, or early enough, fruit. The result is orchards hardy enough to survive even Chestnut Blight. As more and more of the alley crops have been replaced with trees and pocket ponds to help manage water on the farm, the land here has returned to the native savannas where the mastodon once grazed 12,000 years ago (in 1898 bones were discovered 5 miles down the road). New Forest Farm has inspired many other perennial farms, especially chestnut farmers in the region, and Mark hopes that every schoolchild will plant their own apple seeds (and perhaps subject them to STUN) and that every family can plant a backyard food forest.

Went homeless. Done Guerrilla Grazing by choice ever since

Kirsten Dirksen 1.55M subscribers Aaron Fletcher has grazed his sheep and lived off the land as a traveling shepherd for 12 years. He calls it guerrilla grazing (a step above guerrilla gardening, he says) and he lets his sheep graze - with permission- public parks and side lots.

Homeless by choice, he offers his services to small farms in exchange for food or a place to stay (though half his calories come from his sheeps’ milk). With a tiny metal cart home pulled by his sheep, he has a bed, a refrigerator/evaporative cooler, a shower (he uses a pesticide sprayer to pump up the water pressure), power (solar panel), sun oven, a mailbox stove for heat, bicycle tire wheels and a corrugated plastic roof.

Fletcher makes cheese and butter from his sheep milk and forages for seeds, fruits, vegetables and herbs. He’s created a map for foragers in his region. He makes some money with his scythe business - cutting noxious weeds for locals -, but he insists he’s not interested in making money and just hopes to serve as an example for other homeless interested in guerrilla grazing.

How to Transition From Industrialized Agriculture to Permaculture?

Discover Permaculture with Geoff Lawton
124K subscribers
Students of Geoff’s Online Permaculture Design Course have question-and-answer sessions where Geoff fields a number of questions every week and answers them via videos. This question was pulled from the 2021 collection. For more permaculture insights, check out the free Masterclass at https://www.discoverpermaculture.com

Question Big industry claims they are there to meet the ever-growing demand for food supplies. What do we offer as a foundation for our arguments that we can do the same, better? How long would it take to start feeding the world if transitioned wholesale to permaculture today? What would the transition cost humanity? Wouldn't there be sacrifice involved?

Key Takeaways We could do it very quickly with no sacrifice: healthier food, less pollution, overabundance. Industrial agriculture doesn’t provide us with nearly the diversity we could produce ourselves. Urban agriculture produces hundreds of times more food per square meter with more diversity and soil production. Peri-urban agriculture cuts down significantly on food miles and uses the wastes from town to build up soil quality and nutrient density. Industrial agriculture is based on convenient exploitation of the earth for money, with food quality and employment constantly dropping. Industrial agriculture specializes in producing low nutritional weight whereas our systems are built to provide nutrient density without toxic chemicals, huge transport costs, massive inputs, and excess energy.

The switch would be a conscious choice, not a sacrifice. We can produce the same nutrition on four percent of the equivalent area, sensibly located, currently used on industrial food production. We could do this by the next season. That fast.

 Nebraska retiree uses earths's heat to grow oranges in snow

 2,900,410 views  May 27, 2018
Winter temperatures in Alliance, Nebraska can drop to 20°F (the record low is -40°F/C), but retired mailman Russ Finch grows oranges in his backyard greenhouse without paying for heat. Instead, he draws on the earth's stable temperature (around 52 degrees in his region) to grow warm weather and produce citrus, figs, and pomegranates - in the snow.

Finch first discovered geothermal heating in 1979 when he and his wife built it into their 4400-square-foot dream home to cut energy costs. Eighteen years later, they decided to add a 16'x80' greenhouse in the backyard. The greenhouse resembles a pit greenhouse (walipini) in that the floor is dug down 4 feet below the surface, and the roof is slanted to catch the southern sun.

Finch relies on the warm underground air fed into the greenhouse via plastic tubing under the yard and one fan to avoid using heaters for the cold Nebraska winter nights.

Finch sells a "Citrus in the Snow" report detailing his work with his "geo-air" greenhouses and says anyone can build a market-producing greenhouse for about $25,000 or "less than the cost of a heating system on a traditional greenhouse."
