When I first heard the word permaculture & heard that there were 12 principles it conjured up all sorts of complicated concepts that my new gardening brain just couldn’t fathom.

This week I learned of a ballot initiative in Colorado called PAUSE, "Protect Animals from Unnecessary Suffering and Exploitation".

This week as I was scrolling through Facebook homesteading groups, I ran across this post, "Is having meat chickens worth it to you???

I was very very wrong" On this episode, I address one of …
