Ben Falk ð 5 Summary The Resilient Farm and Homestead: An Innovative Permaculture and Whole Systems Design Approach Free download ä 5 Ben Falk is a land designer and site developer whose permaculture research farm has drawn national attention The site is a terraced paradise on a hillside in Vermont that would otherwise be overlooked by conventional farmers as unworthy farmland Falk s wide array of fruit trees rice paddies relatively unheard of in the Northeast ducks nuts and earth inspired buildings is a hopeful image for the future of regenerative agriculture and modern homesteading The book covers nearly every strategy Falk and his team have been testing at the Whole Systems Research Farm over the past decade as well as experiments from o. This is fantastic I found Ben Falk through Geoff Lawton s film series and did uite a bit of research before buying this book I haven t had it long but I ve had a good flick through and read the first couple of chapters I m already getting little unexpected shivers of pleasure from reading it and I m tempted to copy out long chunks of it to post on my blog and encourage people to buy itI loved the opening sentence Regeneration involves seeing things as they could be while resiliency reuires dealing with things as they are This immediately spoke to me and Ben goes on to explore this in a really practical way teasing out these two inextricable but at the same time somewhat opposed idealsI m inspired by Ben s abundant physical and mental health and his observation that this has improved greatly due to his active lifestyle on the land combined with the uality food he produces and eats from itNut trees are certainly going to figure largely in my planting plans after reading what he has to say about them and the role they played in the guided development of the food forests of the NE of America before the European settlers came and the return on investment they give for ours and future generationsI m writing from the UK at the moment but my land is in NE Poland and has a much longer and colder winter like in Ben s part of Vermont so I m particularly happy to be reading lessons from someone with similar climate conditions I do think a lot of what he has to say will be applicable to many in the UK and other places tooNot every word he has to say is as inspiring as the bits I ve singled out and some of his points are a bit laboured but the book is certainly worthy of five stars so far It s also worthy of note that this is a much measured and less political account than some of the other books I ve enjoyed by the likes of Masanobu Fukuoka Joel Salatin and Sepp Holzer but it is still pacey and engagingA very good read recommended
