Episode-1028- Technologies, Products and Ideas for a Transitional Society

For Acorns to be a Food, First a Market Must be Created

For Acorns to be a Food, First a Market Must be Created

There are a lot of things wrong with modern business, finance, agriculture and manufacturing.  Many of us understand the current system is far from sustainable but we also know for now it is all we have.  Today I will discuss some business and product ideas that are just bouncing around in my head.

Some of these are honestly very easy to do, others may require a lot more work then I imagine but most of them do have a potential to change things for the better long term.

Like most ideas though, they are pretty much worthless unless someone make them happen.  Some of what you will hear today isn’t new at all, in fact some if it is how we can take old ideas and actually make them work.

Join Us Today As We Discuss…

  • First you have to understand how a market is “created”
  • Second you must understand human nature is to be lazy
  • Third you must understand that people naturally resist change
  • Ideas for Transitional Products and Businesses
    • Stop taking about acorns and make them edible in mass quantity
    • Develop small scale affordable hullers and presses
    • Make methane biogas but do so for others on their own sites
    • Develop a pond based back yard aquaponics system
    • Cheap modular (snap together) aquaponics systems
    • Building electric motorcycles
    • Building battery back up systems

Episode-720- An Interview with Jason Fields of The Urban Farming Guys

The Urban Farming Guys Explain Aquaponics

Today Jason Fields joins us from The Urban Farming Guys.  Jason is part of a group of about 20 families who have purposefully uprooted from out of their comfortable suburban homes.  They then relocated to one of the worst neighborhoods in Kansas City with the goal of transforming it.

Each family has purchased a home within a 5 block radius of each other and put down in order to change lives and improve a community.  Every family maintains a personal garden and actively works together on numerous community projects, such as green houses, a developing community center, raising chickens and more.

Join us today as we discuss…

  • How 20 families dropped a crime rate just by showing up
  • Linking up with neighborhood associations and watches
  • Getting rid of drug dealers the easy way
  • How community gardens are instilling a sense of pride
  • Making your own methane with a bio digester
  • Storing your bio gas to use for cooking and heating
  • Getting items to create biogas from for free
  • Growing over 1000 tilapia in an area the size of a small room
  • The sacrifices associated with this type of project and the rewards
