Permaculture Voices 2 – Jack Spirko Presentation

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]We have a special treat for you today. We filmed Jack Spirko’s presentation at Permaculture Voices 2 and are happy to finally share it with all of you. The conference room was packed for the presentation which made it difficult to get the perfect video quality. It is still well worth the watch.

Enjoy.

June Workshop to Sell Out Soon

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]4 weeks to go for the PermaEthos June Workshop at Elisha’s Spring Farm!  This is going to be a great event and will probably be the largest PermaEthos/TSP event we’ve ever had. We are almost sold out of spots but there is still time to get in.

We have created a Facebook Events Page for the workshop. We encourage everybody going to the workshop to join the event to communicate with other participants, plan car pooling and post your pictures and videos from the event.

facebook-event-button

We have also added even more events over the past few weeks to the workshop schedule. Here are the details:

Optional day 1, Thursday June 11 (Arrive on Wednesday afternoon)—Butchering workshop.

  • Kevin and I are going to kill and butcher Skinny Mama, who’s not so skinny any more.  She’s eluded the butcher since last fall be being impossible to catch, but we don’t think she’ll be able to outrun the .308.  This American Guinea Hog will be delicious!
  • Jesse Tegtmeier will run a workshop on butchering chickens, ducks and rabbits.  All of our meat chickens arrived too late for this event, but we’ll be culling a number of our older laying hens as well as some of the meat ducks.  We started 70 Jumbo Pekin ducks on April 6, and they will be at their ideal weight for this event.  You’ll get hands on experience with the kill cones, scalder, and plucker.
  • Sausage Making.  We’ll be turning much of Skinny Mama into sausage during the afternoon and early evening.  Our grinder, meat mixer and sausage stuffers are the same models you would purchase for your homestead, so you’ll get a great look at how to process meat in your home.

The Main Event, Friday June 12 & Saturday June 13.  Arrive Thursday afternoon and leave by noon on Sunday.

Swale Construction.  Charlie Mitchell will lead a crew to create a swale with the 2 blade plow and tractor.  This is the same method we used to create all of the swales at Elisha’s Spring, and it’s a great, low cost alternative to having heavy equipment come in.

  • Laser Level and A-Frame level usage to lay out the swale.
  • Plowing the swale.
  • Shaping the swale.  If you don’t own a Rogue Hoe, you’ll really appreciate them after this. What a great tool!

  • Planting.  We’re going to cover crop the swale and plant some of our annuals into it.

Plant Grafting and Misting System.  Nick Ferguson will do some basic plant grafting instruction, and will also set up a new misting system.  We purchased the same misting system that Nick and I have installed, and we’re going to get it set up and running during the event.  This is a great, low-cost option for any of you who want to start a lot of cuttings (for yourselves, or even to get a business started).

Mini-Greenhouse ConstructionJon Dowie is driving in from New Hampshire to show us how to build low cost mini greenhouses.  We’ll be putting in 3 at Elisha’s Spring during this event–we’ll have one unit totally built before everyone arrives, and we’ll be building the other 2 during the workshop.  Complete pricing and materials list will be available if you want to make one of these after you leave.

All Things Sharp.  Not only do we have Patrick Roehrman from MT Knives doing a sharpening workshop, he’s got a package with the Genesis neck knife, 2 sharpening stones and a DVD for only $199—That’s $100 off the normal price.

Patrick’s also going to do a Knife Reconditioning workshop.  We’ve got some antique knives that are going to get a whole new knife.

Chris Prater will bring in a forge and will demonstrate how to forge a knife, and will also spend some time discussing beekeeping.

Soils and More!  Mike Vertrees who was one of the PE Tenant Farmers last year is studying under Dr. Elaine Ingham as a soil’s specialist.  Mike’s passion is compost, and he’ll be discussing how to “get your garden off welfare” though better composting techniques.  Mike will also have a compost tea brewer for homesteaders using a 5 gal. bucket and an aquarium pump.

Barter Blanket.  A late evening, campfire area bartering session!  If you’ve been to any TSP or PermaEthos events, you know all about the barter blanket.

One final thing–If you guys are on Facebook, please go over to the PermaEthos page and the Elisha’s Spring Farm page and “like” them.  We want to get our message out to as many people as possible, and we’ve made a commitment to get more content on those pages.  With the PermaEthos Alcoa Project in Arkansas underway, you’ll start seeing more pieces of the large scale earthworks and planting, as well as multiple new courses that are planned for later in the year.  At Elisha’s Spring, we’ve spent a year getting things rolling, and we really want to share the experience.
