    Why I'm Getting Dirty: To learn, so I can to do it on a larger scale when I get some land one day soon. I want to give my kids a place to enjoy and learn from, so they too can be self sufficient and grow their own food if they so choose. I enjoy reading about hydroponics, aquaponics, permaculture, earthbag construction, sustainable ranching and fodder systems. I'd ultimately like to teach these sustainable techniques to whomever wants to learn. Imagine how much less produce and food would need to be imported, if we all did did a little of this stuff ourselves.
