I've mentioned some of the resources and researchers I use here, there's a world of it out there. Start now, where you are, don't wait for the acres, they might never come.

Farming is a successful industry but not if you want it to be profitable. An acre or two can successfully feed your family, clothe you and provide wood for fuel. It's about creating sustainable lifestyles within nature. It's about living a life of peace and beauty. Sure it's hard work and you're utterly dependent on nature, but you're free. And away from the shit hole that is noisy, polluted, dense urban environments.

Excellent videos Cambium. :yep:

Hopefully the increase in need for farm labor will match that of people losing their jobs due ot the failure of the oil economies.

I can see far reaching implications in world politics in all of this as well. :wacko:

Does anyone know how I can save the first video to my hard drive? :blushing:

Cheers OT1! :yep:

And especially thank you for providing the link for the video. Downloading now.

I have to say, that video makes me sad. I wonder how well humans will survive an oil crisis.

I knew you needed the source site, just googled it, in fact there are lots of sites holding bits of the programme, but only google seem to have the whole prog, just tried Flash Video Downloader 2.app, it seems fast and does the job, it works with uTube and that ilk of flash vids as well.

Mate time moves on, I remember my dad telling me about his dad bringing in street musicians into his shop and recording them on wax cylinders and giving them a meal before sending them on their way, and how once radio started my dad being a lad between them they built a cats whisker receiver with a germanium crystal, it needed a 100ft + radio aerial and good earth to drive it. I went back to my birth town the other day, every thing I knew was gone, all the roads houses, it was all new glass and concrete. Its less than a hundred years, what would my granddad think of my mobile, or my iMac, really thats all the time modern agriculture has been extant and in that time literally destroyed the rich farm land of this country.

whelp. lol

So the file is being saved as a .flv Unfortunately it seems like quicktime doesn't play nice with .flv. Does anyone have any suggestions? I checked the Apple site and there are no known codecs to help with .flv files. I'm using flash video downloader 2.

The other thing that is odd is that it won't give the file the name I put in the filename cell.

:cheers:

Not just your country I'm afraid. :sadwalk:

I watched a fantastic Aussie documentary on Permaculture a while back, I had filed it under "extremely promising/revolutionary" in my brain.

Thanks for posting this Cambium, that's what I had meant to pursue but forgotten :wink: .

keep it up

The Man Who Planted Trees (French title L'homme qui plantait des arbres), also known as The Story of Elzéard Bouffier, The Most Extraordinary Character I Ever Met, and The Man Who Planted Hope and Reaped Happiness, is an allegorical tale by French author Jean Giono, published in 1953.

One of my favourite books ..we'll ahead of it's time in 1957 ..written like a kid's book very easy to read ..but if you can't lay hands on the book then the 30min animation(canadian cinema 1987) narrated by Christopher plumber is pretty good ...smoke up and enjoy

no subtitles ..but lower quality
