Does anyone know of any permaculture/sustainable living/homesteading type magazines that are Canadian? I find that a great deal of information I come across is geared towards living more in the south, and often doesn't account for the winters we get up here. I'd really love to find a publication made for canadian homesteaders.

I've never seen one that targets the north anywhere. Up here is totally different than any place else. We have short growing seasons, ours is less than 100 days. We also have 24 hours sunlight, little or no topsoil, large areas of permafrost.

Most of what we do is by hit and miss.

"Small Farm Canada." It isn't too radical, but it's got some good stuff...

We should just start gathering information, videos, podcast material, whatever, of our own and post it to the Great White North forum if nothing else. If it really takes off, we could find someone who's tech savvy to put it all in an online magazine format. With Paul's permission we could get a subscription base started, if he has no interest in this project himself, and that way we'd have the infrastructure to get pre-orders for hard copies. I've mentioned to Paul that he should get someone to help him do this, to provide income for him to employ people to do the things that take him away from generating videos, podcasts, and articles, and that regional inserts could be developed for it to deal with the fact that, as was pointed out, certain areas require focussed attention and special consideration. Let me know if there are any takers; if we just bombard Paul with the material it would take to get this done, the initiative and momentum would probably catch him up too.
