Patrick Johnson runs a farm close to the airport in Richmond, VA. He is still developing the property and makes a small profit each year. He sells his produce at Ashland Farmers Market.
He is developing hugelkultur beds wherever possible in order to keep watering the plants to a minimum. www.rvapermaculture.com.

Thanks Paul and Josiah. I liked the movie and glad it follows the permaculture practice of trying something out until it works for you. Although I don't own land or live where there are plenty of trees for such a project, I appreciate the idea of keeping costs down and making something that will last a while.

The hard-core recycler in me wants to see Judith's machine given a new lease on life. I'll bet extra RAM can be scrounged for free, or swapped for a jar of jam.



I totally agree with Douglas. I have upgraded RAM to 4Gb or greater and install SSD drives and the "old" computers are certainly more responsive and snappy.

Cost < $100 to do each upgrade.
