“FREE LIVING FARM” design project … for earth day … i have presented a concept i call “FREE LIVING” which means you have land and water and have everything you need there … of course you can have a “real job” and live in the “real world” but all (i mean ALL) of your necessities of living can come from your farm … a 5 acre farm is enough for a family … like back in the old days BUT with modern living mixed in … here is how it goes … listen to my March 03, 2016 radio show for more details …


1) list all the things you use in your daily living … everything from tooth paste and toilet paper to transportation etc
etc … food … milk …whatever  clothes


2) figure out how you can replace everything you buy in the store with natural products you produce on your farm … there are some great books on this topic … look into community skills like spinning and making materials … how much time is taken vs today working at a job and then buying your clothes at the store … remember to mix all the modern with the old ways of doing things … for example if you purchase LED light bulbs you will save energy and have light for years to come … but you will need electricity for this and other needs … do you know how to spec out a home electric system ? 


3) list the major things that you need that are currently the largest part of your expenses

HOUSE (SHELTER) – ENERGY (LIST ALL YOUR ENERGY CONSUMPTION) – WATER – HEALTH RELATED ITEMS … have someone do a special on electric cars and trucks … you hopefully already are doing work with
organic and non-GMO gardening … do you know about composting toilets ? when human waist is properly composted it can be used for growing food and fertilizer 


4) now do a mix of modern life and life 100 years ago … the McCanney WING GENERATOR and water filters are modern … regarding storage of food there are many old ways that are still the best … what % of food value is lost in the various food storage methods … study the old fashioned cellar and canning they are still the best ways to store food … do you know how to store apples in a barrel using news paper ???… etc etc etc


5) get the students to talk to their elder relatives to ask how they used to do things


6) create a FREE LIVING farm with displays … FREE LIVING means you produce everything you need PLUS you do not pollute or damage the environment … in fact you improve the land as you live there


7) last but not least … look at some ancient societies … like the INCA … when people came of age they were given their own land where they raised their own food plus contributed to the common pools so no one was hungry … they developed new strains of food … there were no homeless and no one starving or poor … they all contributed to common projects and they spent time in religious ceremonial centers to study … they had 3 laws … do not steal … do not lie … do not be lazy … other cultures could be looked at since some failed because they collected too much from the people like the MAYA … imagine a world in which people’s food and livelihood came from a few miles around them

8) can you imagine a world like this PLUS a world with high technology used for the benefit of all including mass transportation or even possibly space travel and the use of space for eco-friendly life styles
