Today is exactly one month before my 60th birthday. So it is time to get this project underway. About a month ago I purchased a project. A small utilitarian, cinder-block house on an acre of bottom land both of which have been sorely neglected for some time. Remaining true to the spirit of my misspent youth, I moved in. This makes the BONE house of the late ’70’s seem palatial. I do love challenges, and projects. Here is the plan in very broad strokes.
1. ) Turn the plain-Jane single-pain no insulation cinder block into a Passiv Haus energy efficient beauty.
2.) Create a food forest using Permaculture design principals.
3.:Teach other people how to do some of these things here in my Sunflower Permaculture Classroom.
