New book out about the nation's food system BEFORE the national highway system and chain restaurants: Food of a Younger Land

I collect books about tools, building, alternative power and homesteading. Some go back to colonial crafts. Also found one yesterday in New York on how the Amish live without electricity.

One of the best places to get information about homesteading tools is Countryside magazine. Its written by and for homesteaders, not a fancy NYC produced glossy. Its always been practical and grass-roots. They had a great series on homestead tools a number of years ago - will see if I can find the articles and post them here. Regarding solar powered tools - when we visited an off-grid intentional community over the summer I saw a number of 14v and 18v Dewalt rechargeable batteries charging.

Hi Bob,
I was just pondering a list of basic hand tools for general household and homestead use. Any chance that you could get a recommended list of hand tools (or power tools which can be recharged with solar) from Fors to post here and on the State College TT site? Jackie

Hi Bill - Thanks for your interest in TT BEV. As you know we are located just over the mtn from State College - a much different feel to our valley than the Nittany Valley so a different approach and strategy being employed. Our emphasis has been on local food production. We have lots of gardening and food production (eggs, honey) efforts underway at the Julian School of Living Land Trust. We also have hosted a number of workshops centered on local food production including a raised beds, building a chicken tractor, a localvore festival. Debbie, our coordinator, also started the Green Shop, a local venue for farmers and artists to sell their goods. It was featured in the CDT. We have done less in the way of formal outreach, meetings, and events. Our strategy is to connect with our neighbors thru what we are doing. Would welcome you to visit! What part of Centre Co do you reside in????

So what are you folks doing up there? What's your big emphasis? Sorry, but that's an area in the county I rarely visit - I'm not even sure what the geology and forests and infrastructure is like.
