#5. Permies.com managed by Paul Wheaton of Missoula, Montana and is now the largest permaculture site on the internet! Permies.com is great because it’s changed my property and as a result it has changed me. My backyard has been taken over by hugelkultur or the making of gardens out of huge logs of wood covered with soil. I have a classic 4 foot high by ten foot long hugelkultur bed filled with tomatos, squash, beans, flowers, rosemary, lavender and more.

#1. TheSurvivalPodcast.com managed again by Jack Spirko. In 2008 Jack Spirko was a voice out there in the wilderness but now with a crew of over 40,000 daily listeners Jack helps you build the things you need for good living. He starts off by making sure you have enough of Maslow’s hierarchy of needs at the bottom with food, water, shelter and emergency survival techniques in the event of a hurricane or a job loss. Then Jack continues on his way to one thousand episodes helping you help yourself, your family and your community.
The Survival Podcast has a membership brigade that allows you special access to exclusive videos, content and discounts from sponsors of the Survival Podcast That help you implement the plans that Jack will certainly give you. More importantly is the survival podcast forum that is managed by listeners and covers all apsects of helping you live a better life, if times get tough or even if they don’t.
You have a responsibility to keep a roof over your head and food on the table and Jack literally empowers you to do things in order to reduce your dependence on complex systems. More importantly, Jack is full of the common sense that guided previous generations but somehow got lost on us along the way. From sharing his knowledge of growing tomatoes to raising hens for eggs or learning better ways to save money during inflationary or depressionary times Jack has the subject covered. He introduced me to raised bed gardening and then square foot gardening and then permaculture and then hugelkultur and my backyard has never been he same since. I have built a magical fairy land as I wished and although Sep Holzer, Paul Wheaton and Mel Bartholomew taught me how to do it I learned about them through Jack. Jack puts his whole heart and soul into his work with TheSurvival Podcast and Five minutes with Jack. He is truly an inspiration. Here’s to another thousand episodes Jack! Thank you.
