Backyard Permaculture [Video]

Seth from Green Ideas Coop a Permaculture friend of mine found this video;

It shows one way to garden in a small 1/4 acre area. I liked how he touched on a lot of the problems he ran in to and the ways he fixed them. He also touches on a few regularity/legal steps he had to take.

I’m back and will be posting soon

Sorry every one I just started a new job at a local radio station here in Amarillo and it has taken a lot of my time but I am figuring out a scheduled so that I will have time to blog on the things that I am passionate about… GREEN IDEAS. I will have some more things for you all this week-end. I hope that the new year has found everyone well and happy. Please if you find anything green or useful in building green systems please tweet with the #greenideascoop hash tag I watch this tag every day and if there is something posted I will at least make a note about it here. Thanks everyone good luck and stay green.

Over 70 percent of Americans cannot afford to own a code-enforced, contractor-built home. This has led to widespread interest in using natural materials-straw, cob, and earth-for building homes and other buildings that are inexpensive, and that rely largely on labor rather than expensive and often environmentally-damaging outsourced materials.Earthbag Building is the first comprehensive guide to all the tools, tricks, and techniques for building with bags filled with earth-or earthbags. Having been introduced to sandbag construction by the renowned Nader Khalili in 1993, the authors developed this “Flexible Form Rammed Earth Technique” over the last decade. A reliable method for constructing homes, outbuildings, garden walls and much more, this enduring, tree-free architecture can also be used to create arched and domed structures of great beauty-in any region, and at home, in developing countries, or in emergency relief work.

Nokero, the world’s only solar light bulb company, today launched a brand new product to join its ground-breaking N100 bulb.

Dubbed the Nokero N200, the new light bulb is 60 percent brighter than the N100, lasts 6-plus hours on one-day’s charge, and is affordable to billions of people worldwide who live without reliable access to electricity.

“Nokero stands for No Kerosene, and the N200 will strengthen our effort to end the dangerous and polluting practice of burning kerosene for light,” said Nokero founder and social entrepreneur Steve Katsaros, who designed the N100 in January and the N200 in August.

More than one million people die each year in fuel-based lighting fires, and an additional 1.6 million are estimated to die from indoor air pollution.
