I've been an informal student of permaculture for the last 5 years or so, and have been trying to apply permaculture principles to both my garden and yard as well as in my own personal habits (yes, permaculture can be applied to a wide range of activities beside just landscaping and gardening).

Compost tea. Yeah, there's an app for that. #compost #gardening  
Straight outta Humboldt, this app is a great intro to the "art and craft" of brewing your own compost tea for boosting microbial activity in the soil and improving yields.

The goal is to build "The Best Green Jobs Site Ever," which will be a portal devoted entirely to jobs in renewable energy, green building, clean tech, sustainable food, and other eco-businesses.

A story about the strategic National Raisin Reserve and "outlaw raisin farmers" #NotTheOnion  
Farmers argued that the National Raisin Reserve, which seizes raisins from farmers and sells them on the market, should be shut down.

This is a good question, with a provocative yet common sense path forward. What's your thoughts on this?

Introduction
I'm a father, a blogger, a social media fool and a green crunchy treehugger who embraces new media and social networking to help spread the word about positive social change. I also build WordPress sites and teach small businesses how to use blogging and social media.

I dig solar and wind energy, green tech and cleantech, organic farming, permaculture, mushrooms, bicycles, and homesteading topics.
