TreeHugger Organic Farm - Davie, FL

For anyone interested in Permaculture in a tropical environment, there is a permaculuture farm in Davie, FL that has been up and running for the last year.  The farmers there are transforming a former palm tree farm into a permaculture oasis.  They are now operating the farm stand on Friday evenings and Saturdays during the mid day.

The Survival Podcast

I'm not sure if you guys listen to The Survival Podcast, but if you don't, it's a great way to get quite an education in preparedness. Jack Spirko is up to 1173 quality episodes. I was on a few days ago if anyone wants to listen.


I sent this to you a few days ago, and I also requested an address I could send that seed to you. I have a feeling my e-mail is going to your spam.

I haven't seen this mentioned before, but am interested in experience/ideas others may have.  I have a few acres of land that has been mowed for a few decades and previously was used to raise livestock.  Dominant soil type is gravelly loam, but has been depleted over the years.  I would like to know how to regenerate it for pasture land on which I could graze a couple beef cows, maybe some goats.  Any ideas out there?
