A short, sweet, and fascinating way to welcome your weekend.


What you'll get:

  • Every Friday at 9 am EST, a very short email with 5 bullet-points of things I consider fascinating, engaging, or quirky.
  • Immediate access to our newly-published videos, including some that will not be available anywhere else.
  • Topics: Permaculture, climate change, off-grid-living, aquaponics, beyond organic, and lots more.  
  • It will occasionally be behind-the-scenes and personal, like me putting on a GoPro camera and going for a bumpy ride around the farm :)
  • It’ll take you 3 minutes to quickly scan.
  • You will absolutely take away something new.


Another reason to love Fridays...

{And it goes without saying: No spam, etc. Ever. You can read our full privacy policy here}

Every week, I’ll squeeze 60 hours of permaculture into 3 minutes.


Why I'm doing this:

I was impressed with Tim Ferriss’ “5-Bullet Friday,” and realized that the worldwide permaculture community could use something similar. Thank you, Tim. There is an incredible amount happening, and it’s almost impossible to keep up. Even for me. So if you’re at all interested in permaculture and any of its connected topics, this is a massive time-saver. And it just might make the beginning of your weekend a bit more interesting.

What this is:

  • Between training interns here on our farm, consulting, connecting with other permaculture thought leaders … and actually farming (!), I spend at least 60 hours a week in some kind of permaculture activity. I have been living and breathing this for more than 30 years. I absolutely love it.

  • Not everyone has the time to do this, so I will highlight the 5 most interesting things I come across, and share them with you in a once-a-week email. With a little bow on top.
