Get A Victory Garden Plan

A Victory Garden Plan Based On Permaculture

The crises of 2020 are nothing compared to what many professional, intelligent, upstanding people are saying is coming.  From remote viewing masters to lawyers-turned-agriculturists, I’ve watched a number of interviews and exposes that left me with the urgent desire to share what I know about edible landscaping and food sustainability more than ever.  The answer, I think, is a victory garden plan that tells people step by step what to do to create their own survival food garden.

The term victory garden came into use in 1917, right before World War I started.  People realized at that time the critical importance of having the ability to procure fresh produce.  Rationing of food isn’t a long way off today.  As billionaire globalists like Bill Gates, who now owns more farmland than anyone else in the United States, seize greater and greater control over every aspect of life under the clever guise of a pandemic,* those who have been paying attention recognize history repeating itself and getting worse.

Permaculture Food Forest Garden

Grow A Permaculture Food Forest Garden

With the global pandemic scare given renewed energy by the mainstream media and the year we all just had, the availability of food and water is of concern.  If you are image: permaculture food forest gardenwondering if store shelves will be sold out again like when all this started, growing a permaculture food forest garden assures you an abundance of low-maintenance, nutrient-rich, high water-content food.

Not only does a food forest feed you in times of food scarcity or emergency, but if done right it will heal the landscape around your home or in your neighborhood.  That means the land itself can recover from degradation.  Most landscapes are degraded.  We’ve grown used to the English chem lawn with a few shrubs or trees thrown in to flip a house.  But this leaves out essential ecosystem components, keeping your property under-performing.

Why depend on food delivered in trucks when you could grow your own?

CDC Finally Admits COVID-19 Is No Worse Than Seasonal Flu

Originally published May 2, 2020.  Updated September 3, 2020.

I hope this finds you resilient. To the fear, anxiety, and loss of basic rights that many Americans have endured because of the Coronavirus panic.

If you’ve been a reader for a while, you likely know I have an alternative perspective to mainstream, well, most everything. Don’t get me wrong, I speak up for the basic rights of U.S. citizens, animals, and the four elements. I appreciate police officers who uphold their duty to serve and protect. And I want a peaceful, safe world to venture out into. But throughout the past couple of months, I have stubbornly called this a panic rather than a pandemic. Never trustful of the media, owned mostly by Disney and/or 6 transnational for-profit corporations, I immediately became an alternative news junkie when the panic exploded. My sources have been few but fantastic, based in independent investigative journalism and scientific inquiry and military intelligence. It’s been quite a ride. And thanks to the information to which I was exposed during the crisis, I’m fortunate to be able to share this with you.

I will keep this short. I wanted to share this in case the media ignores it, like they have so much else while fear-mongering the country into near mass-hysteria. Please pass it on.

Natural Health and Wellness Tips During Coronavirus

Health and Wellness Tips for the COVID-19 Panic

As we all grapple with the changes brought to our world by the COVID-19 panic, I was inspired by something I saw this morning to offer some natural health and wellness tips, as well as the dose of joy and empowerment that permaculture has to offer all of us.
While even most hiking trails are now closed, many citizens are still able to take daily walks.  I hope you’re taking some time each day to breathe in the delights of Spring and enjoy what sounds like heightened birdsong in the absence of normal levels of motorized human activity.
This morning on my walk up to a 180 year-old Deodar Cedar tree, which just happens to have a perfect chair shape just up from its base,  I found this lovely scene:

How to Be Prepared with Edible Landscaping

Edible Landscaping Is Food Self-Reliance

With a sudden pandemic, supplies emptied from store shelves, and the stock market crashing to levels not seen since the eighties, you might be thinking like a prepper these days.  The folks who’ve been stockpiling food, water, and ammunition could have been right to prepare.  But what steps can you take to become more resilient to the ever-mutating coronavirus if you’re starting now?  From an ecological perspective, edible landscaping is one of the smartest investments you can make.

It’s Spring, and despite the quarantine and isolation directive we’re all under, the birdsong stands in sharp contrast to the dire warnings of the media and government.  Since we’ll all be spending more time alone, now is the right time to start or get back into gardening. Food self-reliance is a good feeling, and it could become an important way to keep your loved ones healthy during this international crisis.

Top 3 Southern California Permaculture Tips

In Southern California Permaculture Can Really Shine

image: southern california permaculture tipsFor property owners or developers in Southern California, Permaculture can make the difference.  This ecological design discipline reduces long-term costs.  It also restores the landscape.  You can create habitat for threatened and endangered pollinator species, such as the Monarch Butterfly, use much less water, and grow healthier plants.  Permaculture is all about efficiency, and you can take advantage of its benefits.

Here in Southern California, where Eco-Logic is headquartered, drought is a major issue.  Mismanagement of the region’s landscape is a major cause of drought.  But this is preventable and reversible.  Simple “fulcrum moves” used in permaculture design allow you to reap big benefits for little effort.

Factors of Climate Change Humans Can Manipulate

Factors of Climate Change We Can Use to Restore Balance

Some factors of climate change are malleable.  Whether or not Earth Changes are natural or man-made, it is a fact that human beings can directly impact local temperature, moisture, soil health, wildlife habitat, and food availability.  This article discusses Trump Forest, planted in 2017 in response to the U.S. withdrawing from the Paris Agreement and our president’s executive order forcing the EPA to rewrite the Clean Power Plan to prioritize energy production.  I’ll also discuss the success of the forest and make recommendations for other things we can all do to restore the functioning of the landscape as a climate-stabilizing powerhouse.

The goal of Trump Forest was to plant 10 million trees around the world.  This would, according to researchers behind the project, offset a significant amount of carbon emitted by a step backward to industry-focused energy production.  The actual number of trees planted ended up being 1,409,857, so the project was cut short.  But that’s still a good number of trees.  Now let’s take a look at replanting survival and how to keep new trees alive.
