DIY Solar Electricity

Class Info

Wouldn’t it be awesome to harness your own electricity from the sun? Solar energy is green, silent and a lot easier to build than you think.

This DIY class will cover the basics of electricity as well as how to design, build, and install your own solar panel system. In addition to solar electricity, we will discuss other sources of renewable energy such as wind and geothermal power. The class concludes with hands-on experience assembling part of an actual solar panel.

You will walk away from this course with the basic knowledge needed to start generating your own solar energy at home…and for a lot less money than you thought!

As I type this, 11 spots are still open for the class. Cost is only $30.

Regarding that window farming class:

Whew! Lots of good information to be obtained in the coming days at this year’s Summit.

As I’m on the verge of starting a food garden for the first time (blogged about in my last “Project Prepper” post), I was excited to learn about the Home Grown Food Summit and anxious for April 6 to finally arrive.

Early this morning, I saw an e-mail from event host Marjory Wildcraft in my inbox. From that message:

Hi Christopher,

All the presenters and myself are thrilled that you’ve chosen to take more control of your nutrition and health.

You’re here on Day 1 of The Home Grown Food Summit to learn to grow your own organic food.

The Summit, over the next seven days, will deliver practical knowledge for growing and preserving nutrient rich meat and vegetables. Food that will help you and your family grow strong, healthy and less dependent on supermarkets.

Todays Topics:

Mike Adams shows why growing your own food is vital knowledge and a skill to have. Our grandparents lived this wisdom daily.

Toby Hemenway explains a simple technique for increasing the yield of your garden by growing certain plants together.

Paul Wheaton demonstrates how to build your garden beds to save time not needing to water during the growing season.

Joel Karsten shows how to guarantee a fast start to setting seedlings out with a convenient, easy to setup straw bale container garden.

Learn more about of the highlights of what you will learn when you attend today’s events, here. The presentations will be available until 9AM EST Tuesday April 7th.

The presentations are packed with information so be sure to have a notepad handy…

A link was provided in the e-mail so I could access Day 1’s presentations.

Later this morning, I viewed two of five presentations available (Ms. Wildcraft put together one as well). The one by Mike Adams of Natural News-fame entitled “8 Reasons You Are Insane If You Aren’t Growing Some Of Your Own Food,” and Marjory Wildcraft’s “How To Produce Half Of Your Food In Your Backyard In Less Than An Hour Per Day.” I thought they were both pretty good. I already had some ideas of why I wanted to start my food garden (better nutrition, more outdoor exercise, and improved food security). Adams pointed out additional reasons why growing one’s own food might be wise in this day and age.

Wildcraft’s presentation provided me ideas for achieving food self-reliance at the Wisconsin homestead I’ve envisioned down the road. However, only that bit about a food garden is applicable in my current situation in the Chicago suburbs. That being said, Wildcraft showing how she was able to produce half her family’s food in her “backyard” in less than one hour a day was incredibly motivating.

It’s not too late to sign up for the free online event. Day 1 presentations can still be viewed until 9 AM EST Tuesday morning.

I’m finding the Home Grown Food Summit 2015 to be full of relevant and useful information. You might too. To find out more about the event and/or to register, click on the banner ad below. Please note that I receive a commission for products purchased via the event.

Free Online Event: Home Grown Food Summit 2015 From April 6-12

Next week, I’ll be attending the Home Grown Food Summit 2015- from the convenience of my home. From an e-mail I received this morning from Marjory Wildcraft,the “Martha Stewart of Self-Reliance” best known for her Grow Your Own Groceries DVDs:

Christopher

Welcome to Home Grown Food Summit

Thank you for registering for The Home Grown Food Summit being hosted April 6-12.

Get ready to learn the essentials of food cultivation, harvesting and storage that will prepare you to grow your more organic life.

The Summit offers 30+ presentations to help you get home grown food on your dinner table.

The Summit features the worlds leading experts in backyard food production. These people have dedicated their lives to help you re-establish the skills of organic living as the foundation of good health and environment.

The Home Grown Food Summit is free to attend.

Because we all deserve healthy food.

And while organic food is often unavailable or too expensive at the showcase displays of supermarkets, we are all capable of greater self reliance. A little bit of knowledge –tips and tricks learned from experience– will short-cut your path to being more self reliant.

Like the times that you tried to use a new app on your cell phone… Apps that were explained by a friend were so much easier to pick up.

The presentations of the Home Grown Food Summit are like that.

Here is what you can expect

Starting Monday April 6th and going through to Sunday April 12th, starting at 6:00 am EST four or five presentations will be posted.

The presentations will be up for a full 24 hours for you to watch and enjoy.

An email announcing the presentations for each day will be sent to your email inbox early each morning.

Growing food is more fun in community!

Please spread the word about the “Home Grown Food Summit” to your neighbors, co-workers, friends, and family…

(Editor’s note: Bold added for emphasis)

Consider the word spread.


“Home Grown Food Summit 2015 – Welcome!”
YouTube Video

Like Ms. Wildcraft said, this year the Summit is free to “attend” (view).

In addition, when you register for the event you receive four bonus e-books (.pdf format) by e-mail:

How Much Land You Need To Grow All The Food You Want
6 Ways To Keep Chickens And The Best One For You
How To Make Homemade Shampoo
Saving Seeds And Living Free

I already took a quick peek at my copies and they appear to have some pretty useful information.

Resource Of The Week: 20 Websites For Finding Local Food, Family Farms, Markets, Stands, Co-Ops, And More Near You

These days, I pay more attention to the source, quality, and cost of the food I consume than I used to (still have a long way to go however).

I have to thank my wonderful girlfriend for getting me started on the “right track” here.

And I was really glad to have stumbled on a March 8 article on finding locally-grown healthy food on the Activist Post website. Heather Callaghan wrote:

As demand for local and raw goods continue to rise, more people are asking – where do I find local organic? Where do I find raw milk and join a herd share? Where are the farmers markets, co-ops and stands?

Search engines are actually terrible at locating these underground hubs, which makes it so frustrating to try and opt out of corporate chains, save money, and build your family’s health. If you’ve ever gotten a bunch of ‘Yelp’ listings for weight loss pills while searching, you know what I’m talking about. I’ve helped a few people find a local CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) but I found it by accident. So where are they all hiding?

As it turns out, many of the farmers and markets you’re looking for have teamed up with certain websites to be mapped. Use this easy list to find yours today. They won’t all be on the same map, but you will be sure to find markets and family farms in your area that were previously invisible.

Heather went on to provide a list (website addresses) of “20 Quick Resources to Find Local Food, Farms, Markets, Stands, Co-ops and more!”

The websites she posted were terrific (I talked about LocalHarvest in a March 2011 post on beating higher food prices). I particularly liked reading about FarmMatch (“Unique because whoever you are, you can put yourself on the map to be matched with producers in your area”). And I’ll have to bookmark LocalDirt (“Helps you buy right from the farm. It’s also a marketplace that allows you to sell and trade. Got eggs? Sell them to your neighbors here.”) for when that Wisconsin homestead becomes reality.

Heather did a great job compiling this helpful collection of food-related resources, which are located on the Activist Post website here.

Eat healthy, my friends. And enjoy the rest of the weekend.
