Hi folks!
Here are 4 reasons to choose raw honey at Eco-Minded Club (http://ecominded.net/honey-bee-products.html):
1. You are offered 4 different types of honey with exceptional tastes and healing properties.
2. All honey is exclusively raw and organic
3. All honey has been extracted in the purest place on Earth - in the wilderness of the Russia's Far East taiga (100 km from the nearest settlement) by the "old believers" communities.
4. You are offered 50% discount for all types of honey.
Please place an order here: http://ecominded.net/honey-bee-products.html We ship to any country.

The Conway School, a graduate program in ecological landscape design and planning, is accepting applications for the 2018-2019 academic year. Apply now for the Late Application Deadline (April 11), and mark your calendars for Conway’s next information session here at our Easthampton Campus (Mill 180, 180 Pleasant Street, Easthampton, MA) on Saturday, May 12 from 10am-1pm.

The information session will include a presentation about Conway from faculty, presentations by two current students, and presentations from alums. The three-hour event includes a tasty lunch.

Students graduate from our 10-month program with a Master of Science in Ecological Design. They work on real landscape design and planning projects, such as green infrastructure designs, food security plans, habitat restoration plans, and designs for educational landscapes. Please email Kate Cholakis at admissions@csld.edu for more information about the program.

Sepp Holzer is one of my favorite permaculturists. In his recent book, Desert or Paradise on two pages Sepp recommends the Fokin hoe (Russian flat-cutter or ploskorez Fokina). Vladimir Fokin is the name of the inventor of this tool. It does not look like much, but the great Sepp Holzer says it saves him loads of time, so what are you waiting for? ))) Place an order and get it directly from Fokin's family: http://ecominded.net/heirloom-seeds/garden-tools.html

I’m in the Peoria area and looking for some thornless cane fruits. Anyone have recommendation on varieties that would do well here or where to get them? Better yet, anyone with discarded canes I can root?

Just a FYI for anyone interested that someone is doing a printing of Buckminster Fuller's Dymaxion Map T-shirts until December 12th. 


Thought some here might be interested!
