THE SELF-RELIANCE MANIFESTO When priorities turn bone-deep fundamental - as FEMA predicts will happen to all of us in our lifetimes on this planet - have you got what it takes (literally) to weather it safely with your family and neighbors?

I want to invite anyone who can make it to the premiere of the Earth Shelter Documentary on May 3rd, 2012. The premiere is at the Wealthy Theatre in East Grand Rapids. This is a free screening of the documentary. Also, if anyone has a builder or project that they feel would be more cutting edge than anything else out there right now, let us know. We are currently filming and casting for another documentary and national media coverage. You can contact me at:

Doing our best to live green, at least chartreuce. Can't for Coveyou's CSA to kick in so we can eat local "green" grown veggies from Coveyou Scenic Farm Market. No synthetic sprays!! Food tastes better!

Our lawn is in bad shape after winter, but their Dairy Doo Organic Fertilizer brings it back. Amazing stuff. Check it out.

James thanks for sharing that information with us. I am a Bergey dealer in the area so that is no problem and I also can provide you with 3.6 kw of solar too. I just finished a project this size in January that was a 4.05kw of solar for one of Eric Hughes customers. If you would like a price for your system, you can reach me at (231) 715-1170. I can also provide generator backup too. I have a full range of Briggs and Stratton whole house generators too.

Thank you all for the warm welcome. It's great to know people in the area to work with. The house is to be a cement slab floor with ICF walls. Masonary Thermal heater, 3.6 KW solar, Bergey XL 1 wiind [still TBD]. The South wall windows ~12% of thermal mass square footage. 4' overhangs 1.33 ft above the windows. we would like to source the parts as 'locally' as possible
