"eastern spirituality" basically means I believe in inner development through meditation, right living, etc.    there is of course much more which could be said about it all.    my favourite book is Autobiography Of A Yogi, which would give anyone an idea of the sort of things I believe in
Well, just throwing it out there, like the rest of you, LOL. I live in the province of Saskatchewan and don't think I want to move, though won't rule it out. I currently live on a family farm, but might buy my own place. Chickens, garden, goats, honeybees, building stuff, etc, etc. My main focus is preparing for hard times, which I feel are imminent. It's safe to say I embrace eastern type philosophies. I think of myself as spiritual, but not religious. My favourite book is Autobiography Of A Yogi, by Yogananda. Outwardly, I'm very practical. Love music and nature.

I built one top bar hive, but it wasn't good enough for wintering the bees, so I transferred them back to the regular hive. I wintered two colonies and plan to build top bar homes for them this year. As well, for more colonies I'll probably purchase. My bees are active at this time, but no blossoms yet in this region. I am feeding them sugar water, as is commonly done here in spring and fall. Rudolph Steiner strongly recommends mixing the sugar with camomile tea, so this is what I'm doing.

100% effective until 1964, when someone invented "alternative positioning"...

So, maybe we're actually looking for a time machine

Various approaches could be explored/taken, but the main thing, IMO, would be to make more land (lots and acreages) more easily available to lower income people, because right now it is too difficult for many. Yes, in an organized way and with good steward, etc, built into contracts, etc. Globally, we see the need even greater than here. It isn't right or good to keep poor people down too much. They need reasonable leg-ups, as well as incentive. If not my land ideas, then others can be developed, but there is room for much improvement, IMO. I'm running out of time I can devote to this thread, so I may just leave it at that. Thanks for the discussion.
Now I find myself wanting to discuss/debate much of what you've said in these posts, but I don't think you want that either. Our common ground is that we both love permaculture and see the spread of it as helpful to ourselves, others and the whole world. Let's continue in that great vein of positivity. You've clarified your desires for the site, so now I know. Thanks, P.M.
Personally, I'd try to broaden discussion to include politics, religion, etc, cuz everything relates to everything else, just like in Nature. But, it's your site and it's good that you do what you want. Parameters noted. Thanks for explaining.

I looked around for the guidelines today, but didn't find them. Maybe posting them up front on the home page will save you an immense amount of deleting time. Maybe they are somewhere handy, I just didn't look in the right place. Or forgot them after I signed up. In that case, I apologize for not following them.

In the Great White North forum there is a topic about Crown Land. The conversation has drifted into politics, economics and other things. You're stating that you will erase some of those posts. I asked if it was a space issue, cuz I find the conversation is still about Crown Land, indirectly, and about land acquisition in general, and don't see any of it as offensive. You referred me here to ask questions about it. So, is it a space issue, or is there something else about the conversation you object to?
