SUSTAINABLE LIVING FOR CHALLENGING TIMES

The intent of this board is to provide an archive of postings and sources of information which will aid an individual or community to adapt to challeges of sustainability now and it the future. 

Gardening and raising animals are essential in a sustainable living environment.   The skill set for success in each of these ventures is vast.  The American farmer, who represents about 2 percent our our population, is a model to emulate in surviving, providing and sustaining .  Our agrarian past once dominated our society.  Under trying resource and economic conditions, people must  return to methods of their past history for survival.

The financial meltdown of 2008 has rejuvenated an interest in gardening; there will be other challenges for all of us to face.  Over time, those who have been prompted to garden will learn how to develop an environment suited to their gardening goals and needs.  Much research and experimentation will be required for success.  Learning the science of soil,  building compost and worm bins,  planting herbs and perennials to attract bees for pollination,  and creating water collection systems are  examples of what is required for a complete garden.  

Harvested vegetables and herbs must be canned or dried to assure food for winter months. 

During winter months, vegetable and garden seeds must be started and then transplanted to larger containers for eventual hardening off before planting into the soil.

Record keeping of every step for every year provides a gardening history that can be utilized for future planning.   If Plan A is halted by bad weather, then a Plan B must be adopted. 

Sustainable living never ends and encompasses many skills.  Those with persistent efforts will most likely achieve yearly success. 

Finally a healthy gardener or farmer is a productive one.  Nature provides an arsenal of weapons, mostly in the form of herbs,  to support health; they can be utilized for survival.

The information box provided below was recently revamped so that new information can be more easily added.  Recommendations are welcomed to assure a vibrant spirit of learning, referencing and sharing of information.
