How Water makes Permaculture Better
Kai: Water is an important feature in permaculture. Whether you are adding a pond, bird bath, rain barrel or other source to your yard, no matter how big or small, it enhances all aspects of the garden. Water attracts beneficial birds, insects, and reptiles, which eat many of the pests that would normally consume your garden.Continue reading How Water makes Permaculture Better
Coffee & Colonization – Short Film
Recently we worked with Gnomewood Farm on their short film “Coffee & Colonization”
For this film we created multiple animated illustrated scenes, focusing on a coffee farmer. The illustrations were made in Krita, and animated in Blender. Both Open-Source software made for artists.
Forest Ranch Regenerative has a ton of great videos on their YouTube channel, all on different topics like permaculture, biomimicry, and more. Check them out and give them a follow/subscribe!

Chicken and Quail Eggs are Awesome!
Kai: Permaculture recycles everything, just the way nature intended! With all of the laying birds in the family, it’s important for them to get their calcium, and although there are many products one can buy for this, we like to reuse our chickens and quails own eggshells. We simply toast the empty shells in the oven and blenderize to a powder which is added to the bird’s food. I even use it for my parakeets.Continue reading Chicken and Quail Eggs are Awesome!
First time Breeding Pigeons
Kai: Almost a year ago I acquired 4 homing pigeons from a man at the keepers of the old ways expo in Blountstown Florida. When we got them home, I found that it had been a stressful move for the younger bird, and I had to nurse him back to health because he’d lost a lot of weight. The 4 birds had to gain back their muscles after being in quarantine, and once they were finally released into the coop, I found their behavior hard to follow…for months and months, all they did was fight and claim perches.Continue reading First time Breeding Pigeons
Baby Quail Hatch Update
Kai: The baby quail are 2 weeks old now. Out of the 8 that hatched, 7 have survived to this point and are looking good. One that still remains has a bit of a longer story though, as when he or she hatched, they were born with splay-leg. This condition can be fixed if caught immediately, and so luckily l recognized it shortly after hatch day – but at the same time, I had absolutely no experience with it.Continue reading Baby Quail Hatch Update
