Here is a great video I just found of Dee Williams and her thoughts on Tiny Houses and what it means for her in her life. I couldn’t help but be struck by the question she posed: in your final breath of life, what is the one thing from this life you wish to hold. It struck me in a profound moment of clarify and it made me think not WHAT I would want to hold, but WHO. I think I have said this often, but it is relationships that matter, not things.
A few months back we had a post on the future of farming, where the idea of forest gardens was talked about and in the comments we talked some too. The basic idea is you take a piece of land that is just a field and you design it to grow into a forest where each plant has a purpose. The rub is you can harvest year round for about 5 days of maintenance a year!
Here is a video of a 300 year old Forest Garden, spanning back 28 generations!
Great little video by a fisherman singing the oil spill blues
