I’ve always had an interest in sustainable living, as a kid I would make maps of the farm I would one day have and how it was going to be able to support me. I haven’t yet managed my own farm though I do have chickens as a temporary pacifier. I’ve got a vege garden and soon will have an aquaponics system set up to grow fish and vegies.

My next goal is to start looking into how to live off grid power. Looking into this the initial systems are somewhat out of my price range and so I’ve begun looking into homemade solutions.

One of the products I’ve found is Earth4Energy, this is a product on making your own solar panels and windmills for less than $200.  This product sounds very exiting to me, as most of the supplies are apparently available at your local hardware store.
