Better Together!

We have been very busy scheming something special for our friends (you!) and are so excited to be sharing it now! We are partnering with School of Living and Little Free Library Cochranville, associated with Street Road Artists Space, to host our local community and friends to a free creative gathering at StellaLou Farm. I’m going to let the event website tell you the full story. I’m so excited! We are getting the word out early so we can attract activity facilitators and to give you a little tease. Put it on your calendar! We are…Better Together!

SHARING SOLUTIONS: HOMESTEADING & CULTIVATING COMMUNITIES

Our days have been so full that I have been neglecting this blog.

But!

School of Living will be hosting a full day of learning and sharing on July 15, 2017 in collaboration with the Street Road Artists Space  at StellaLou Farm. It will be the opportune time to catch up in person!

Meet Bob’s Dragon

Reducing waste, increasing diversity, and developing resilient, regenerative systems are goals we have for StellaLou Farm. With these goals in mind, educational opportunities tend to pop up on my radar.

This one is, certainly, relevant: The Whys and Wherefore of Biogas Systems: Natural Gas without Fracking.” The presentation begins at 7:00 on January 28, 2014 in Breinigsville, PA. It is being presented by Bob Hamburg and hosted by The Mid-Atlantic Renewable Energy Association (MAREA). Bob studies, designs, and installs “dragons” for the production of renewable energy through the process of anaerobic bio-digestion.  His work, inherently and enthusiastically, incorporates education and the promotion of whole system regenerative design in small and large-scale agriculture. 

Bob does not ever describe bio-gas production as a linear process. He builds one’s understanding of bio-digestion through examples of integrated cycles and processes. The real potential of bio-digestion is discovered in sustainable symbiotic relationships established between agricultural elements such as farm animals, fish, plants, ponds, greenhouses, homes, people and, of course, dragons!

Here is a quote from Bob’s website: “I suggest that dragon husbandry offers a sustainable means for management of the semi-cycle of return so as to develop an increasing spiral of biomass and diversity.”

(The following event description comes straight from the MAREA website.)
