Interview w/ David the Good – Resilience in Growing Food

Interview with Florida Permaculture Gardener, Writer, and YouTube personality, David The Good.

David is a favorite of ours when it comes to permaculture gardening. His experimental and practical ways of growing food make for fun and interesting videos, not to mention his sense of humor! David is the go-to guy if you want to learn to grow a productive food forest here in the Sunshine state.

Your New Friends: Chickens

Kai: Our chicken keeping experience has been both fun, challenging, and surprising, especially with the appearance of a neighborhood rooster that showed up not long after we got our first two girls, a Brahma, and a Wyandotte. Later in the year, we felt we could afford to expand, and adopted two other ladies, our beautiful easter egger chickens. Throughout all of this, that little neighborhood rooster stole our hearts, and has kept the girls safe from hawks despite his size. In thanks, we’re keeping him warm this winter, and he has been paid in many treats.

While we’re still mastering even the basics of chicken keeping, I think we’ve learned a lot in just one year. We still hope to expand in this area of permaculture, but for now, we shall take care of our small flock. If you are a bird lover, or just want an interesting addition to your backyard garden, I highly recommend this pleasing, and colorful domestic fowl. I feel like they are a great tool to help children learn about animals, nature, and the “backyard” ecosystem. Be sure to get hens from a crazy chicken lady if you want a sweet bird you can pet and hold!

The book is written by me, and illustrated by Arianna and I. Digital effects were created by Avery.

The Your New Friends series was created for the love of good things and pleasant learning experiences. I offer this digital book for free because I believe in home education.

OUR SUMMER GARDEN

In the last few months, I’ve come to see that gardening is becoming more important than ever. There has been a rise in people wanting to learn how to garden and grow their own food in ways that are more sustainable for the Earth. And because of the current issues in the world, being able to procure your own food is important, and it does bring you a sense of being secure in these times.
