Sepp Holzer is a crazy Austrian. He’s independently came up with many of the same principles as the folks who coined the phrase permaculture down in Australia but he did it on the side of a mountain that gets tons of snow. He’s written books and has several DVDs and Youtube videos and consults all around the world designing systems.
Geoff Lawton is the Crown Prince of Permaculture. He is currently the director of the Permaculture Research Institute. He studied directly under the founder of permaculture, Bill Mollison. Geoff is famous for the Greening the Desert site location in Jordan. He is featured is numerous YouTube videos and DVDs and other permaculture publications.

Paul Wheaton is the Duke of Permaculture. He is probably the best promoter of permaculture in the US. Paul’s biggest contribution to the world of permaculture is his forum website www.permies.com. He also creates and publishes awesome YouTube videos.
He recently purchased a huge plot of land out in Montana where he continues testing out his theories and innovating on lots of different fronts.
He’s developing a type of housing he calls WOFATI, which deserves its own article. He’s also at the forefront of rocket mass heaters.
Paul’s a student of all types of permaculture but he’s really keen on the things Sepp Hozler has accomplished. He’s also pretty good friends with Jack Spirko of The Survival Podcast. We can also thank Jack for getting Paul to podcast of which he’s made over 200 of. The podcast is a great thing to subscribe to as we’ll as Paul’s Dailyish Email as he recaps and promotes all his new creations and happenings.
So I haven’t gotten past messing with the cans on this project but the ideas still apply.
I’d wager that when most people think solar power they think photovoltaic panels. The traditional solar panels that turn sunlight into electrical signals. In truth sunlight can be used in lots of different applications. These including passive water heating, passive air heating, and even for drying fruit.
This article looks at building a passive solar air heater from mostly found materials.
Step 1 – Collect lots of aluminum cans.
Step 2 – Use an old school can opener to take off the tops.
Step 3 – Punch or drill holes in the bottoms.
Step 4 – Glue the cans top to bottom to make a long tube.
Step 5 – Build a box to house several tubes together.
Step 6 – Install the tubes into the box.
Step 7 – Paint it all black.
Step 8 – Cap the box with glass on a clear plexiglass.
Step 9 – Install a computer fan to pump the warm air into the house.
It seems I started this post a long time ago but never finished it. There are many situations where you’d want to build a form that when submitted redirects to another form collecting different information. You’d want the information already collected to be on this new form though so people won’t have to fill it in again.
College sports generate a lot of money and it’s illegal to pay them beyond a small stipend and the cost of tuition. This cool little tool shows how much players would get paid if they were paid like there pro counterparts. Show the question remains should we be paying college athletes.
