Descrizione

This is a transcript of an interview with Rocket Mass Heater gurus Erica and Ernie Wisner. We talk about permaculture, a little about rocket mass heaters, and how prepping, and living a prepared life has helped them in tight situations. My favorite quote: "Permaculture is long-term preparedness, and a way to think about problem-solving for any situation."

It's the longest of all of the interviews, but if you've ever met these two, you know that that is just the way they like to talk. The are a wealth of information and it's definitely worth the time spent!

Introduction

Dear Reader,

When you hear the terms permaculture and preppping, what do you think of?

It's my guess that most folks think of permaculture and prepping as vastly different topics. Typically folks think of permaculture as a mostly hippy, spiritual, liberal sort of movement, and think of prepping as a militaristic, doomsday, conservative sort of movement.

For years, my husband Chris and I have followed both of these movements. We see that, while some folks take it to the extreme (like doomsday preppers, or the purple permaculture folks), there is a practical way for anyone to apply both of these topics in order to build a sustainable life. Permaculture is a design science that is based on three main ethics: Earth Care, People Care, and Return of Surplus. There are principles, which you can apply to your garden, your business, and your life in general. As a way of life, there are certain things you do to keep yourself in line with these ethics and principles. It is plain and simple, a good way to live.

Similarly, the main ethic behind the preparedness movement is People Care. Preparedness is really about you and your family being properly prepared for daily life. There are six elements of personal and family preparedness: Social-Emotional-Spiritual Resilience; Literacy and Education; Career Development; Financial and Resource Management; Home Production and Storage; and Physical Resilience. There is definitely more to prepping than bunkers, bullets, and beans!

I’d like to think that even though preparedness and permaculture are a little like apples and oranges, they are both very important to changing the world for the better. After all, they are both fruit, and don’t apples and oranges go great together in a fruit salad!?! (I’m thinking of calling it the Fruit Salad of Sustainable Living… What do you think?)

I’d also like to take it one step further by saying that permaculture and preparedness are both necessary to living a more sustainable life. In order to pursue this line of thinking, I’ve decided to interview experts in both fields to get their take on the matter. Most of these interviews were done via email. The opinions and viewpoints expressed
