Tried posting about 75 links in one post last night; won an auto-ban.

Not going to try that again; anyone like to recommend a free posting site that won't truncate the links?

As for lye being some sort of wood product; here is the skinny on that: a crude way to get lye is to save your ashes from a stove burning HARDWOOD (why hardwood?) and to leach out the lye from the ashes. Never tried it myself and have only read about the process.

Lye is referred to as "caustic soda" and is somewhat dangerous in the pure form as sold in hardware stores.

So are lots of other things. Teach your children caution and to think before acting and let Darwin pass out the awards for those who fail to learn.

I am personally sick and tired of this nanny state.

Thisis AMAZING.

I am shocked that the GOVT does not have some RULE that would prevent all of this at his home.

In the future I am sure we will all be growing our own food.

Could be - but whether or not it is a "career" it is certainly something that people should not lose touch with = the connection to the earth and the ability to produce food from it for self and family...hf

You know what I see? White people with ideas, capital, a work ethic and the self motivation to make things happen trying for the umpteenth time to raise the duskier hued members of our nation up from their circumstances.

Multiculturalism is a cult based on the fraudulent notion that all people are fungible. They aren't. The reason that these folks raise tilapia rather than suckers is that all fish aren't equal- some taste better than others. The reason they are raising vegetables instead of weeds is because they want to eat the end product- they understand nature... right up until the point that race enters the equation and BOOM! just like that, they ignore everything every bit of empirical data in order to do something that cannot be done.

I feel sorry for them. One day, and soon, those cute little kids they dragged to the inner city are going to get a big fat dose of race reality.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1525224


I feel that this project has merit on many levels. I don't want to get into any racial discussions, but incidentally, if you watch more videos in this thread you will see a black man who is growing a million pounds of food on two or three acres.

This thread is not intended to be about anything other then people working together for a better, more self-sustaining world.

I appreciate that you took the time to watch the video and that you will perhaps learn from it and implement some of these strategies to the benefit of your own self, family, and community.hf

Re: Farmin' in the HOOD --- VIDEO --- these families raise tons of food and have transformed the neighborhood...URBAN FARMING/ GARDENING
So looked up quite a few things tryiing to get away from using lye in soap. There are a lot of websites and you tube videos that claim they do this, but in fact they're just shredding an already existing bar of soap.

It turns out that the chemical process of mixing lye with lard is call "soapification", The lye is what hardens it. If you do it right, the lye will chemically mix with the oil to form a soap that is non caustic. But the lye on it's own is dangerous.

There were some sites about making soap without lye, but it was gelatenous and gooey, and would disintegrate quickly with water.

There's a very informative video on how to make lye here:

[link to www.youtube.com]

Basically, it's a filtering water through ash. Any kind of ash will do apparently.

Also found this quite interesting:

[link to www.associatedcontent.com]

According to this, the way soap was originally discovered was from people having animal sacrifices. After they burned the animals and if it rained, the rain would filter through the ash and the fat of the animal would drip down into it. When the women were washing clothing downstream they discovered soap from it.

Pretty crazy.

Having said that, and now that we know how to make lye naturally and don't have to use that chemical compound, I thought this youtube video gave a great example of making homemade soap:

Washing soda - Since supposedly washing soda is hard to find, I found this:

[link to www.mysuburbanhomestead.com]

"All you do is bake it (baking soda) in an oven for an hour at 250 degrees."

Pretty cool.

Baking soda is made from a chemical reaction and comes from mining. Looks like that would have to be bought. NO! But personally, I'd think a bar of soap would do just fine in a pinch.

But I thought I'd pass along that little trick to get washing soda as it might be helpful to some people.

Re: Farmin' in the HOOD --- VIDEO --- these families raise tons of food and have transformed the neighborhood...URBAN FARMING/ GARDENING
I have so enjoyed this thread and the others like it. I've learned alot and remembered things I'd forgotten. Thanks for the time and work you've put into this. At the risk of turning my grandma into an "uncle", please be very careful with lye. Gram said they made it when she was "at home", because there was nothing else. They had to make it outside on a fire because of the fumes and it will give you very nasty burns if you spill it on you. She was so glad when she got married and moved off the farm and could buy soap. Then the Depression and WWII came along... My mom remebers helping(?) Gram make soap. She was really little then, so we all know what "helping" means, right?

Washing soda - Since supposedly washing soda is hard to find, I found this:

"All you do is bake it (baking soda) in an oven for an hour at 250 degrees."

Pretty cool.

wow - great find!

From the article:

Not only that, but you can purchase large fifty pound sacks of baking soda from feed stores for around $15.

Try this: [link to www.esnips.com]

Irritates me that I misspelled aquaponics as "acquaponics" and never saw it until I made the upload.

Let me know if this works for you.
 Quoting: Levi Philos


yes, it worked - thanks!!

That's a HUGE amount of information - I think I may transcribe it to smaller posts so that we're not reliant on that website for the links..
 Quoting: Astrochik


Presumably it will work for anyone.

So readers, just download the file to your own computer and put a link in your bookmarks to where the file is located on your hard drive. And if you don't understand how to do that go out on the street and find a teenager to show you how.

That's better than bothering to put all that into 25 or more posts to this thread.

If anyone finds a dead link or knows a better related link I will be updating that file in the next few days as I find time.

... and with that... be back later or tomorrow.

I want to try it but I like the soap I buy and have quite a stockpile of soap for now.

But it's something people should not lose touch with- like candle making - anybody have candle making links? I know they used to make them from tallow - beef fat.

Urban Farming - The coming trend
Urban Farming - The coming trend Nice initiative...learning how to be self-sustaining is&#65279; a huge one.... Awesome! Great work guys, I think you're entering history books right&#65279; now!(or major Wikileaks articles at least) Love seeing what is&#65279; happening in that community. Its amazing what a few people pulling together can accomplish. Fantastic and inspiring project. It can be done. This proves that it is not necessary to leave the city to create an off grid, self sustainable food paradise. This is the way to&#65279; turn the cities into paradises and Spaces of Love. I hope this grows to all the cities! We don't need intruding government but people working&#65279; together!
