Some more incoming links from Sunday

We aren’t one to laud biodiesel as the answer to the fuel crisis (two wheels, two feet or four would suffice), we look at it as a band-aid solution.  Once every one to two months Justin brews a 30 gallon batch (using recycled veggie oil from one of our restaurant clients) which lasts us quite awhile because we still conserve how many trips we take using the car.  In fact we clock in less than 4,000 miles a year on our bioburban.

FYI I am the voice heard off camera inform Justin that it’s a moving camera…. hehe

Here’s a little impromptu interview with Justin Dervaes, the “Biodiesel Man’s” Biodiesel Recipe


Also thank you to Motherearthsoup for encouraging your readers to support out outreach.

Don’t forget for safe, secure seeds grown by the people for the people.

BTW the book Justin is referring to is HOMEBREW BIODIESEL GUIDE

    I’m new to your blog … I think I first stumbled on it a week ago, but I have spent quite a bit of time reading and feeling inspired. I was raised on a farm in the deep south, but I have only tinkered with gardening since I married and started my own family. This year, though, I built my first raised bed and filled it full of veggies, as per the recent ‘small space gardening’ craze. I am very pleased with the results of my first try at this style of gardening, and I have plans to add three more raised beds this fall.

    I tried the link to HOMEBREW BIODIESEL GUIDE, but landed on a blank page. You may need to double check the link address. The book sounds very helpful.

    Thanks again for sharing what you learn … it is an encouragement and a challenge to those of us who are ready to take it up a notch!
