www.FreshTasteAquaponics.com is having a weekend workday event this weekend in TheCityof Chenoa starting with a Friday evening social followed by a workday all day Saturday and till whenever Sunday. We have been lucky enough to secure a couple cabins nearby to use Friday and Saturday evening. A good amount of food will be provided, please bring something to sleep on, snacks, and beverages. We will be building 5-7 90ft raised waterbeds, installing 1500ft of dura-pex hydronic tubing, and a good amount of plumbing to connect our 5,000 gallon fish tanks. Please message me if interested. This will be a great way to learn quite a bit about creating aquaponic systems and the benefits they provide in a Local Food System. If you are interested in helping us install a couple bee hives with bees and arriving around 3pm please message me for details.

Also I think it would be neat to have people volunteer to host an Online Group Skype or Google Voice Meetup conference and presentation. It would be good practice for us and a good way to invite people to see what projects we are doing, small or large. This would also be a neat way to make decisions on how we want this group site to develop. Please share your thoughts so I don't feel that I am leaving people out or that I am crazy.

So I thought it might be helpful to apply some Permaculture design principals to the design of this group. I have used the Permaculture Flower as a template for core discussion topics and I would like to be able to give visitors to the group some pretty good information on what we in Indiana and the Midwest are doing to improve our communities in these areas. I think most discussions will take place casually on this comments wall, but that the discussion area can be a great place to learn about and track data in a methodological way on the projects we are involved in. The cuulest thing about the Permaculture Activist Magazine is the data that shows yields, labor, and other stats related to what we do as Permaculturists. I think these discussions can be a great way for us to start showcasing what is possible based on the data we collect for our Temperate Midwest Zone 4 -6 areas. Please share your input and let's take this year to look at how we as a group can work cooperatively, build community, and share what we are doing with others !!!!

All sewn up

Hi Renee,

Do you know a place that re-uses fabric from sewing projects?  Some may be several yards, usable for making an outfit, others are scraps from projects.  This would be most helpful for my closet cleaning!

Thanks.

Recycle this!

Dear Renee - 

What is the best way to get involved and have an impact on what the city of Indianapolis decides regarding recycling?

I find it ironic to see all of the new billboards around town noting the problem when the solutions haven’t seemed to follow.

Thanks!

You may [...]

Have a seat

I have several expired car seats that can no longer be used. These things are huge and I feel bad dumping them in the garbage, but I can’t find any information about recycling them. Any ideas? Thanks!

Kristin

Kristin,
