-Tim Ferris and his 5 bullet Friday – I am not sure who came up with the 5 bullet-Friday concept but I have been following Tim’s for a couple years now.

-Geoff Lawton and his Friday Five Newsletter – Every week he squeezes 60 hours of permaculture into 3 minutes. Every Friday at 9 am EST, you’ll get a very short email with 5 bullet-points of things we 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.
-Justin Rhodes @ abundantpermaculture.com he sends newsletters out once a week, sometimes more, not necessarily on Friday offering up a lot of permaculture advice – mostly on chicken keeping but he is one smart permaculturist helping bring back the family farm and enhancing agriculture practices.

(5)@theBoomstead projects of the week: Tax Season is here – so I have been focusing on that exciting stuff. Guy started putting the bunny guard up and hopefully we will finish it and the gates this weekend if the weather is nice. This week we have a consult with our neighbors to help them figure out how to amp up their garden and growing abilities…permaculture style. We also have to do a recycle run into town – for being “off-grid” we still accumulate to much plastics and recycle material, One of our main goals every day is to consume less and produce more for ourselves. So a Project we will start this coming week is Growing Micro Greens @theboomstead in our tiny house, we will post a blog about it soon, but. but this is one way we can all produce nutrient dense food @ home without taking up a lot of space.
Have a booming Weekend my buddies!!!
