thanks for the comments! i just joined a CSA here in the east bay (full belly farm). getting my first pick up this week! pretty excited about that. what's your banana buying cycle like? i still haven't figured out when to buy next week's load as the few places i've been to keep selling out of boxes before i can get my hands on any. then i end up eating unripe bananas which i am growing disdain for each unripe banana at a time
That's cool the owners were happy with it. And guerilla grafting makes a lot more sense than guerilla gardening. Do you know what other trees besides plum are commonly used in urban areas and that could be grafted?
It's been a long transition on the pursuit for higher levels of health, awareness, & spirituality for my 2 brothers and father. The most recent steps before the jump to 801010 was triggered by watching internet videos like the we ones we have recently posted from guys like DantheMan, RawMatt, and Dr. Graham.
The walking path...great, a sort of fill in between the dots of the bike path project.
I have studied all of the options available for community structures. I spent 12 years forming my strategy with over 1000+hrs invested, so it will take a little too long for here to explain. It has a simplicity to it but is multifaceted with many moving parts. I'll give a short explanation of how it works.
It's simple form is a collective company that operates for the greater good of our communities and uses a unique company model that will be multiplied to become a group of companies that work in harmony to support our lifestyle. Many community memeber work for one of the companies and are also the shareholders. Investors may also become shareholders/community members with no obligation to work for one of the companies. We own the company, the company owns the buildings and we rent our homes from our own company. Our main business is real estate development of our own commuity buildings and is not dependent on real estate speculation. Think of this as a fully integrated real estate company that we are shareholders in and pays us monthly dividends on for life. Our development/designs and construction business allows us to build at a cost lower than market value but the properties are all appraised at market value. Employment is created through construction that allows us to pay rent to ourselves. Employees work for a combination of cash and shares allowing us to conserve a large amount of capital. So we are just using clever accounting to make it all happen instead of using individual ownership wich is very inneficient. Financing comes from shareholder loans and equity that we create as we make buildings and add other value to our land. We then start other community based businesses which I'll get into some other time.
Cheers. I didn't even know that you could subscribe! That was my first blog post. I have my own blog too on eatmoreraw.net/blog . I think I'll have to copy any useful new posting to this site too. I also have a youtube channel, youtube.com/eatmoreraw , but most of the video's are on hear anyway.
Still, this does not seem a reason for not telling us your hammer-recipe anyway. Come on... I promise i won't open a restaurant and use it. I am just super curious about all sorts of different recipes. And the differences can be subtle in the recipe but huge for the palate, in my opinion. So...
