1st Hour: Tue, February 28, 2012 (http://www.blogtalkradio.com/doctorprepper/2012/02/29/self-reliant-living) Carol Deppe, author of The Resilient Gardener Water and Soil Fertility What do you do about providing water for your garden and orchard if the electricity fails or the pump dies or the well goes dry? How do you plant so as to achieve maximum resilience toward such disasters? How do you maintain soil productivity and fertility if you have no access at all to imported amendments? What can you experiment with and learn now that will most help you if you ever need to garden without buying or importing anything? Carol Deppe is the embodiment of The Resilient Gardener. She has a Ph.D. in Biology from Harvard University, and has been experimenting with crops and gardening in Corvallis, Oregon since 1979. She is a freelance plant breeder specializing in developing public-domain crops for Oregon growing conditions, sustainable agriculture, and human survival. She teaches the need for sustainable “hard-times” gardens that produce large quantities of staples rather than the common manicured good-time salad bowl gardens. 2nd Hour: Tue, February 21, 2012 (http://www.blogtalkradio.com/doctorprepper/2012/02/22/self-reliant-living) Caleb Warnock Forgotten Skills of Natural Yeast Caleb will be discussing the history of natural yeast as well as his introduction to natural yeast and how to get started using it.
