The Classic Texts Downloadable for your Agriculture Library

Wisdom from agricultural heroes

Author: Annie M

Per the website owner:

This website provides downloadable e-books about radical agriculture, natural hygiene/nature cure and self-sufficient homestead living. There are secondary collections involving social criticism and transformational psychology.

No payment is required.

The library explores the connection between agricultural methods and the health or illness of animals and humans. A study of these materials reveals how to prevent and heal disease and increase longevity, suggests how to live a more fulfilling life and reveals social forces working against that possibility.

May Permaculture Meeting

Large acreage study group

Author: Annie M

 

The May meeting will be held Sunday the 18th (which is one week earlier than our normally scheduled meeting).  We need some help planting raspberries.  If time and weather permit we'll also be laying black plastic to sterilize some soil.

We'll be passing out some ollas I'm making.  Here's a YouTube link describing the use of ollas as a water saving tool.  The ollas I'm making are made of terra cotta clay and are made on the potter's wheel.  No glue is used. (see you tube link).

Please bring something to share at our monthly potluck.  We'll provide beverages.

Join us May 18th at our home: 12621 E Valleyway, Spokane Valley Wa 99216
