Tell us about your garden and what you're growing
We grow much more than food. We are growing ideas, and testing them with practice.
We've been making good progress on the Economy in a Box - the infrastructure tools for post-scarcity, resilient communities. Our work focuses on the integration of flexible fabrication with resilient communities. Subsilience is the result: the combination of resilience with modern day subsistence - a high quality of life free of compromise, which is feasible with modern technology.
Over the last 3 months, we have managed to scale our progress twofold. We’ve seen full product release of the open source CEB press, The Liberator, and we’ve had significant progress on the open source tractor, LifeTrac Prototype II. We also deployed the first prototype of the heavy duty, open source drill press, which we’re now using as part of our fabrication infrastructure. We just reported on Prototype I of the 150 ton hole puncher . These are two additions to the open source, self-replicating Fab Lab, or RepLab. We also got the first working prototype of Hexahatch, the automated chicken incubator, in operation. We also deployed Prototype I of a honey extractor. Plus, Sean is on-site for the summer gathering documentary material, and his LifeTrac II update is choice. People are beginning to talk about us in mainstream books.
Please view this blog post if you haven't seen it already - for more details on the above. We have 2.5 people here now, so we're far from a division-of-labor resilient community of individuals specializing as generalists. We are certainly are looking for more people for Dedicated Project Visits and remote collaboration. You can see how additional people can contribute to rapid progress, so finding more people is a priority. If you would like to see this work increase pace, consider subscribing to the True Fans.

Hi Martin, Just read your post to me about resiliant communities. As you can see, I am not on Ooooby often. Best if you go to www.villageforum.com and use the contact page to send an email, and then we can link up. Claude
