Create Your Best 2021 - A Process for Reflecting on 2020 to Plan 2021 (FSFS232)
Play • 1 hr 12 min

We’ve just signed off from 2020 and we’re starting a new year in 2021. Looking back at the past year, how does it make you feel? Are you sighing with relief, just glad that it’s finally over? Or maybe you’re looking at how even though 2020 wasn’t that great of a year, there were still things to be happy and thankful about? Javan's workshop:

In this episode of Farm Small, Farm Smart, we have Javan Bernakevitch, and we’re talking about year-end reviews: how you should do it, why you should do it, and how it can hopefully help set you up for a better 2021 by doing an honest self-reflection and setting intention. It won’t just be looking at facts and numbers, it’s also taking stock of your emotions, what brought you joy, what brought you suffering, and planning it out in the year ahead to get the same, or even better, results.

It's simply changing your approach.

The Wondrous World of Living Color
Step into the vibrant and beautiful world of living color with natural dyer, designer, and artist Sasha Duerr. Sasha takes us on a journey from Soil to Studio. We learn how creating and working with dyes made from plants, seaweed, and other natural materials can increase our ecological and botanical knowledge, foster collaboration, and have a beneficial impact on ecosystems. Natural dyeing offers us multiple opportunities to participate in solutions. Food scraps and green waste can transform old clothes into “new”. Instead of being buried at landfills and emitting VOC’s, organic materials like onion skins, pomegranate rinds, and citrus peels can be re-purposed into natural dyes that revitalize our wardrobes and lessen our carbon footprint. Some dyes can even be poured into the garden when finished and used as a fertilizer. Unwanted weeds in your yard or invasive plants in your neighborhood can also be turned into color. One of my favorite dyes is Sour Grass. I look forward to seeing this ubiquitous plant every winter. I collect loads of it and dye old clothes a neon yellow that really glows. (Note: Be sure to identify plants before using them as dyes- just in case they are toxic.) Sasha talks about a few of her favorite dyes including Loquat, Eucalyptus leaves, and Redwood Cones, all very appropriate plants for beginning dyers. We also learn about some of the palettes from her new book Natural Color. I especially loved the Pollinator and Perfume Palettes. They will make you swoon! What color story would you like your clothes to tell? Sasha Duerr is an artist and designer who works with plant-based palettes, natural dyes, and place-based recipes. She is an Adjunct Professor at the California College of the Arts with a joint appointment in textiles and fine arts where she designs curriculum and teaches courses in the intersection of natural color, slow food, slow fashion, and social practice. Her work has been shown in galleries and museums across the United States and abroad. In 2007, Sasha founded the Permacouture Institute to encourage the exploration of regenerative design practices for fashion and textiles. Her extensive work with plant-based palettes and ecological principles through local land-based sources and community has been featured in many publications She is the author of The Handbook of Natural Plant Dyes, Natural Color, and Natural Palettes.Discover more about Sasha and her work at Sasha mentions the following references in this episode: Books by Kate Fletcher Fibershed Greenpeace Botanical Colors

Shane Connolly and the Life of Constance Spry
We’re thrilled to host Shane Connolly again to The Flower Podcast. This week Shane and I chat about the amazing life and influence of Constance Spry. Constance Spry is a pioneer of floral design and her life’s work was to coalesce her love of gardening, nature, and her passion for teaching. Her impact on the floral industry is still being felt today and inspiring floral decorators around the world. Some thoughts from my conversation with Shane: 1. Embrace the process of trial and error. Many times we produce our most memorable work by staying the course. 2. Danger…We should never design to be safe but design for what suits your creative explorations and your clients requests. 3. Constance Spry was a true believer that beauty uplifts people. The simple expression of giving flowers is very personal. 4. Sometimes your best actually happens when everything is failing and you have to go with your instincts. It also builds your confidence in trusting yourself. 5. Constance Spry’s view was that nothing was off limits in design. It was never just about flowers but incorporating fruits, vegetables, foliages, and other items of nature. 6. If you want to be a floral artist, you have to do something unique, something different. You must behave as an artist. You can learn more about Constance Spry on our latest Blog post on ! We’ve included links there to our past episodes with Shane Connolly and Emily Thompson, both of which have been deeply inspired by the work of Constance Spry.

Farm Small: Maybe Farming Isn't the Perfect Job for You (AND THAT'S OK!) (FSFS235)
A lot of us who go into farming probably had an idealized vision of what farming as a career is supposed to be like and how our lives and lifestyles would just naturally meld into that vision when we start farming: grow some vegetables, sell them, pay the bills, live a quiet life while eating good food. As simple as it sounds—and many of us have experienced this firsthand, no doubt—it doesn’t happen that way. There’s all the nitty-gritty of designing your operation, ensuring there’s a market for what you grow, and making sure the numbers are enough to keep you on a living wage, among other things. So, say you’ve started farming for a while, but the lifestyle is leagues away from what you imagined it to be and it just isn’t hitting off. What would you do then? In this episode, we’re talking to Sam Billings, someone who fell in love with the idea of permaculture and farming, tried it, and decided he was happier working at a company and gardening as a hobby instead of making it his full-time job.

Episode 400 - How the Holler Neighborhood Works
Today by listener request, I explain how the Holler Neighborhood works as a community, as well as cover some of the history of how we ended up here. Icemegeddon Update Webinar coming up March 6, 2pm CT - Pantry Management Practices with Nicole Sauce Monday, June 14, chicken processing workshop, 9am Tales from the Prepper Pantry * Road food update, homegrown year * Reorganized canned goods * Reorganized prepper pantry * Sold seed potatoes * Found a stash of canned stock * The final jar of 2019 green beans will be consumed this week Operation Independence * Function stacking with the addition of a carport * Phireon Update Main topic of the Show: How the Holler Neighborhood Works People often ask me about how to build community because they see what a great network we have in LFTN and the hear the stories of the Holler Neighbors and wish they had something like that near them. Sometimes it is hard to really say what each needs to do. This podcast has doubled in size since last year and it is on track to double again this year. That means there are a bunch of you who were not around for the dawning of the Holler neighbors. History * Moved to the holler & Island Mountain Pat, learned homesteading things * The farmers market years and discovery of local organize and permaculture communities * The work vs homesteading choices and mistakes * Finding TSP and starting to go to events, Zello * The advent of the podcast - 1 year to 500 listeners * A personal transition from corporate work for my own health, friends * Prioritizing relationships, hosting events here, 1st workshop, TN GSD Crew * Friends moving to the area -- and the development from there Lessons learned * You get out what you put in * Make time to go be with people in person * Let the community guide itself and set expectations of solutions and positive action rather than bitch fests * It will go where it goes How the neighbors work now * Each has their own household, land, etc * We talk monthly about what we wish to accomplish * Unified by shared values and priorities and the desire to help each reach their happiness * Dealing with frustrations and boundaries * Communication and connection * Efforts do center on the events we do here, as well as producing high quality food * Money matters and strategic plan * Holler Dollars - the chicken processing workshop So far we have been successful as a community but that does not mean there has not been frustration, struggles with mental health, financial durres, and arguments. The deal is that we have agreed to open lines of communication, discussion of healthy boundaries, and putting hurt feelings aside to find solutions together as a family. It also really helps that everyone is king of their own castle. I cannot imagine how it would be to have someone telling me what color I can paint my home, etc. The Holler Neighbors work because of shared values, love and good will and the most important shared value is that we buy into individual liberty and the non aggression principle -- this means that what you do, so long as it does not harm others, is none of my business. As a friend, I will tell you if I see it harming you, but at the end of the day, you can do what you want and I don’t get to stop you. You do you. That is what works -- we do not have a bunch of rules. Just mutual respect and supportive friendship. And this community has been empowering to all of us in many different ways. Make it a great week!
