Permaculture Voices Video Series Added to the MSB

The Permaculture Voices Conference of 2014 was the first of its kind in the world.  Names such as Geoff Lawton, Allan Savory, Joel Salatin, Greg Judy and more all in one place.  Now you can get the entire conference on video.

Those who attended get an even lower price.  To get the video series go to http://www.permaculturevoices.com/video/subscribe/

If you attended you can get the videos for only $99.00 with the discount code on the benefits page of the MSB.  If you didn’t attend you can get the videos for only $199.00 with a different discount code in the MSB .  Please use the proper code based on whether or not you actually attended the conference.  Spot audits will be performed to ensure no one cheats.  Those who attended get a much larger discount because they paid the full fee to attend the conference.

Here is what is included with this video series…

  • Over 80 hours of talk footage from PV1.  This includes almost all of the talks given during the conference.
  • Over 5 hours of bonus footage of behind the scenes interviews filmed during PV1.
  • Over 5 hours of Geoff Lawton talking permaculture in a PDC held immediately after PV1.
  • All talks are available via streaming, and all talks are downloadable.  You will have access to the streaming for a year and beyond.
  • All of the keynotes and some other talks are available now.  New talks will be released on a weekly or faster basis.  A release schedule is below.
  • All talks can be watched in SD or HD through Vimeo streaming.
  • There will not be any physical DVDs.  They are cost prohibitive given the total length of footage that we have.  Each video is downloadable.

The regular price of this video series is $245, so this is a great discount.  The discount codes again are on the benefits page of the MSB.

And now back to my vacation.

I am on Vacation, Starting Now

At this point I am officially on vacation.  I will be as such until Sunday May the 4th.  I will do VERY BASIC daily email including very basic customer support, such as I can’t log in.  I am not doing anything else.

This means, if you send me an email telling me your life story or an email with a detailed proposal in the next 12 days, likely it will be deleted.  It isn’t that I don’t care, it isn’t that I don’t normally at least scan such mails, it is that after almost two weeks the volume of actionable mail I will return to will be very large.

So basically with things like the above, I am not saying no, I am saying not right now.

Anyway, I will likely do some brief posts, suggest some old episodes while gone and I will definitely post a lot of cool stuff to our facebook page while away.  See you guys when I get back.

Just a quick Happy Easter to all, and a quick reminder that the MSB Spring14 Sale ends at midnight central time tonight!

Reminder MSB On Sale for Only 30 Bucks for the First Year

Join the MSB Today

Join the MSB Today and Get 20 Dollars Off Your First Year

Just a quick reminder that the MSB is currently on sale.  With this sale you can get your first year of TSP Members Brigade for the next ten days for only 30 Dollars, which is a savings of 40%. Use discount code “spring14″ to get your first year for only 30 dollars.

This sale runs until midnight on Sunday the 20th and as usual I will not offer the discount after the sale closes. This is a great discount on an already great product.

You can learn more and join the MSB Here. Those who wish to pay by mail can just write the discount code on the mail in form. Those paying by silver will receive 2 extra months (14 vs 12) instead of a direct discount.

Yes you can pay for multiple years if you pay by cash, check or silver and apply the discount to every year. If you pay online you can’t use this code to renew early, sorry it creates a logistical nightmare to do that. Let me just say in the words from the Electric Company song on PBS when I was a kid, “I would if I could, but I can’t so I won’t, please forgive me if I don’t.”

That said if you currently have an expired membership, you can use this code to add a new subscription to your old account. Just log in to the MSB, you will see a link saying your account has expired. Use the code “spring14″ during renewal and select MSB 12 Month Renew as your term of membership.

Let me just close with, while the MSB is already a great value, when I return from vacation later this month I am launching a full on summer time blitz to gain new discount vendors. The value of the MSB will definitely go up in 2014 a great deal, so if you have been thinking about it, now may be a great time to get in on a great deal and help support the work we do at TSP at the same time.

MSB Sale Discount Code Fixed – spring14

Okay so something went wrong with the discount code for the current MSB sale.  Right now you can get your first year of the MSB for only 30 dollars, full details on the sale are here.

Thing is yesterday some folks got an error saying the code was expired.  Some fricken bug jacked up the back end of the system, anyway I have fixed it and the code which is “spring14″ once again will work.

The 299 Days Kickstarter Has Launched

299 Days is a ten-book series written by government insider Glen Tate. He has a front row seat to the corruption in government, and based this story on his first-hand observations of why a collapse is coming and how it will unfold. The book series, published by Prepper Press, has been very well received by both “preppers” and the general population. To date, over 70,000 copies have been purchased.

TSP Wiki Hits 900 Articles – Help the Wiki Grow in 2014

Hey everybody this is going to be all about the TSP Wiki, the modern survivalist encyclopedia written for you by you. We started up the wiki just 5 short months ago in November of 2013 and in that time we’ve created almost 900 articles, have over 100 contributors, made almost 7,000 page edits, and gotten over 100,000 page views. So the only question is, “Have you gotten involved yet?”.

tspwiki-screenshot

Wikis are a unique type of online community where any reader in a few short steps can become a collaborating content creator. We want the wiki to be a valuable resource to all TSP community members. To make this happen we need you to come out and participate. Whether you participate by just coming out and reading articles or whether you jump in with both feet and start creating articles we’d love to see you out at the wiki.

We know that it can be intimidating figuring out how to use a new computer program but editing any wiki is about as simple as sending out an email. We’ve created a few tutorial videos to show everyone just how easy it can be. The videos cover topics like how to create an account, make a basic page edit, and even create a brand new page.

A great thing about wikis is that you don’t have to worry about getting anything perfect because there will always be another community member willing to help out. They can review the changes you made and then fix any small mistakes you’ve made or if a big mishaps occurs (like deleting all the content in an article) then they can revert the article back to a previous version.

With that being said click on over and join us out at the TSP Wiki.

Parting thought, what ways can you think of for you or others to get involved? Share them with us in the comments below!

One Spot Open for the Food Forest Workshop

I had a cancellation, the people on the reserve list say it is all too short of a notice now.  I certainly understand that.  That said if anyone wants to come to the Food Forest Planting workshop running from Thursday to Saturday next week the price is 500 dollars and again I have one opening.

UPDATE – I think the spot is sold!
