Re: waterproofing yurt canvas

hi
i just got a driazabone rain coat and their great mate, originaly the idea came from sailors who used old
sails as rain coats and wind protectors, tracking down old methods used by sailors might be of help

Hi everyone, i have read with great attention what had been said about waterproofing canvas using natural
products (oil, beeswax and pine sap). I am currently experimenting with this recipe too on a heavy flax
canvas. I wanted to hear from people (and especially Yaya since she started the topic) who tried the recipe
to get some feedback. How did it work? How can you make sure it will stand the sun and not melt (as i saw it
happen)? Which are the proportions that you used? thanks, oswaldo

The Mix:

beeswax
pine sap
paraffin (canning wax) - maybe if beeswax is in short supply (sometimes
          beekeepers sell big castings of beeswax cheap)
linseed oil
rendered animal fat (maybe, if available)

heat together in pot or double boiler

make this mix so that when it sets up it will be very tacky at any 
temperature
smear it on the canvas them put it in the sun (or use a hair dryer to) 
to melt and permeate the entire sheet of cloth - do this procedure until 
all of the the tarp is covered and well saturated

free copies of Graham Burnett's "Permaculture, a Beginner's Guide"

I have about 25 copies of Graham Burnett's "Permaculture, a  
Beginner's Guide" (the excerpted web-version) which I printed up for  
a workshop this weekend.  If any one in the US  can use/distribute  
these I would gladly send them to you media mail.  Note that I've  
altered the resources section to reference US resources.  Send me  
your postal address backchannel. Thanks, & thanks to Graham for  
putting this together.  The kids in the workshop in particular found  
it very accessible.

Re: free copies of Graham Burnett's "Permaculture, a Beginner's Guide"

OK folks, you've cleared out all my printed copies.  If anyone else  
want's to access this, I've put the pdf that I built from Graham's  
site up online at:

http://www.organicvalley.coop/pdf/permaculture_handout.pdf

[I think it would be to everyone's benefit to have a whole set of  
open source / downloadable / printable pdfs all compiled & maintained  
in one place.  Steve Diver of ATTRA seems to be doing some of this  
but other than that most of it seems spread around a lot of websites  
and not gathered in a printable form.]

Re: Arctic permaculture

Hello Sarah,Thankyou for the info on Inuvik.It gives a very positive perspective on what we could achieve
here in Ruby. 4 million dollars would be hard to come by for such a project but then there are only 200 people
here and it could be done on a smaller scale.If you would like to know anything specific about our area
please ask and I will respond.thanks ed

CALL FOR PAPERS

American Planning Association Annual Conference San Antonio, Texas April
22-26, 2006

"PLANNING FOR THE FOOD SYSTEM" TRACK

Deadline: September 1, 2005

For the first time ever, the 2005 APA national conference in San Francisco
hosted a special track of sessions devoted entirely to exploring connections
between planning and the food system.  Seven well-attended, informative
sessions examined the links between food and such community planning
objectives as neighborhood improvement, public health, economic development,
effective land use and transportation, and community participation.  To
build on this successful effort, we seek proposals for papers and sessions
for the
2006 APA conference in San Antonio that discuss innovative research and
practice on a variety of community food system planning topics.  Proposals
may address: 

ยท Innovative land use and transportation planning to 
improve food access in low-income rural and urban areas
