Homemade Fire Logs

The link to the actual proceedure is below.

Many houses in cold climates have wood fires to help warm up the home in winter, rather than just the gas heaters that you usually see in city living. Not only does it create a lovely ambient setting in your home, but it is also very effective at heating not just a room, but a whole house. However, it can be expensive to buy firewood and if you can't get it for free from the woods or on the roadside, you can make your own fire logs from newspapers.

Excellent source for the beginer wanting to get involved in methane digester projects. The link to the website is posted below.

Anaerobic Digester Project

My Anaerobic Digester Project is going to be building: (a) A small-scale digester. (b) A medium-scale digester. My project will also include research on the workings of anaerobic digesters, the usage of anaerobic digesters and the possible future of anaerobic digesters that can be used at home.


What Is a Food CO-OP?

There are many different types of food co-ops. I have attached a link to a good source of explanation.

Just the first paragraph, for more please click the link.

A food co-op is a collectively owned grocery store. Most frequently, a food co-op focuses on making natural foods more affordable for co-op members, although other products may be carried as well. There are a number of different styles of food co-op, but all of them share common values of group management and decision making, social responsibility, and equality. Towns of all sizes have food co-ops ranging from very small to quite large, and it is usually easy to find a food co-op near you.
