I'm studying permaculture or natural farming on my house property, and a farm land. People call me an idiot or insane man. Ah~ I don't give a damn about it. Permaculture is like Free Energy technologies in agriculture IMHO. When I see and Bill Mollison and Masanobu Fukuoka's video and after reading 'The One-Straw Revolution', it struck me really hard by the revolutionary perspectives. "That's it."
Local farmers are busy of exploiting soils when the season starts. They dig up the soil by heavy machines, spread chemical fertilizers, and spray pesticides for weed/pest control. Korean farmers put seven pesticides on rice plants at least. I couldn't get organic seeds so far. I bought five bags of processed seeds by Made In China at a government farm agency. Farmers pretty much became slaves nowadays. They barely own seeds for planting anymore. If the government can't or won't supply seeds coming year, entire population will be in poverty because farmers do not grow vegetables or corps except rice. Humans poison new born babies with vaccines, they also poison seeds too.
Most farmers are so ****ing stupid, ignorant, no empathy towards nature and life forms. It makes me sick sometimes but macroscopic mind control made them to be such way over thousands years. Nowadays we are at the pinnacle of death worship, slavery civilization. I began to understand the sorry feeling and the question of "why" while I was looking for farmers nature destroying behavior. Korean farmers love to destroy trees, kill animals, do whatever the government tell them to do spreading pesticides, toxic chemicals, artificial fertilizers.
When I lived in Canada, I got surprised at how all the house owners spend money and energy to take care of the lawns, which is artificial, wasteful weeds. They have to do it because let the house property be covered with weeds or other natural plants, the government will punish them. So pathetic, distorted sign of present nature destroying culture.
Well this stupid lifestyle nowadays become world standard. Upper class Asian people push it to next level. Rich Koreans usually build artificial garden on their expensive houses putting huge rocks, big trees, and some nice looking flowers and green lawns .
The permaculture masters wholeheartedly say "Respect nature and work with it. We are still so primitive stage compared to billions years old biosphere." A handful of natural soil contains millions of microbes. It has proven system of life perpetuating mechanism built-in. Can humans build a helpful virus yet? I doubt it.
Permaculture farmers are lazy and relax, work with nature. They are a designer of an eco-system for food/animal production. Instead spending money and demanding labor, and exploit nature, they create environment that produce various food in natural way.
Masanobu Fukuoka claimed doing natural farming liberate farmers from heavy labor once and for all. Farmers will enjoy life and appreciate the nature which provides stuff more than enough. He suggest once a natural farm established, and begin to produce food as is farmers only need to work less than average two hours per day - 10 to 15 hours per week. Isn't it wonderful way of living like wild animals? I'm convinced it already and I've been working on it two months ago. Whenever weather is fine, I go to my home in countryside, fixing the house building and property.No pesticides
No digging the soil
No chemical fertilizer
No usage of heavy machinery
No planting of single or few corps/vegetables.
Anyway I would recommend spending some times to watch Permaculture videos on Youtube. Bill Mollison and Masanobu Fukuoka's are considered as legend in permaculture.
I often ask "Why now Free Energy technologies and permaculture reveals themselves in public domain? Why these never had been spotted?" I thought once I have a FE power generator, I'll be invincible. But it turned out I was wrong in farming. Working against nature will bring disaster.
There are already enough materials and organizations for English people. So you can find or meet real permaculture farmers in North America or other English using countries. Some places offer training courses. City dwellers have limited choices in this aspect. So many stupid laws and regulations.Permaculture: A Designers’ Manual, Bill Mollison

My goal for this year to plant as many vegetable plants, edible weeds, fruit trees on my property around the house. I wanna pack at least hundred species into the food garden including weeds. I destroyed a section of concrete fences and planted a medium size tree near the entrance of front yard. I don't want to waste any space for the car parking lot. Instead using electric water pump, I use manual pump. Composite toilet, a small pond for water reservoir, and good house insulation using organic materials that I find locally are on my list. I do it all by myself.
Provided there are plenty of raw materials for house building, less than $1,000 investment of money for tools make one build or fix a house. A good power tools: a drill, a saw, a grinder would cost about $400 to $500. Then you buy manual tools and measuring devices. Don't go for anything that uses batteries or electricity. Wear the Safety glasses all time. I mean it. A pair of mechanic gloves is handy.
I work on electrical stuff too. Hot wire is very dangerous: 220V, 30A. If you are uncomfortable electrical stuff, hire a electrician or get a help from a capable person.
Permaculture for food.
DIY skills for house and property/machine maintenance.
Independent clean, reliable energy can be achieved by hybrid grid integration for now: emergency backup system by wind/solar/hydro power or human powered generator with the grid system. Having a HHO generator is handy too.
I believe in the FE power generator will come out one day. Then, it's end of the story. ^^
