Science Friday did an awesome video about Christopher and Malissa Tack and their tiny house. What I really like about this video is that they show a lot of the details of the power, water, and greywater. It was a great to see some of the house, how they live and some of the things not often covered elsewhere.
Malissa and Christopher are coming to the Tiny House Conference. Christopher will be our photographer and Malissa will be presenting about organizing small spaces in a tiny house. Check out the video and see how amazing their tiny home is. Meet them and many others at the Tiny House Conference; more info here
This morning I got up to find a video that was insightful from a person that I had not expected. It is from the actor that brought us Dude Where’s My Car and That 70′s Show, Ashton Kutcher. Not only did he give this talk, but he did it in a place where he had a huge platform to share it at: The MTV Teen Choice Awards. His third point was somewhat related to tiny house living, so I thought I’d share with you the video
Here is a great video I just found of Dee Williams and her thoughts on Tiny Houses and what it means for her in her life. I couldn’t help but be struck by the question she posed: in your final breath of life, what is the one thing from this life you wish to hold. It struck me in a profound moment of clarify and it made me think not WHAT I would want to hold, but WHO. I think I have said this often, but it is relationships that matter, not things.
A few months back we had a post on the future of farming, where the idea of forest gardens was talked about and in the comments we talked some too. The basic idea is you take a piece of land that is just a field and you design it to grow into a forest where each plant has a purpose. The rub is you can harvest year round for about 5 days of maintenance a year!
Here is a video of a 300 year old Forest Garden, spanning back 28 generations!
