Invaluable...with a caveat :)
As someone who is starting our own “Beyond Organic” farm and homestead, I cannot begin to calculate the value of this podcast. I discovered this a couple months ago and have since listened to every episode from the beginning. Being able to fast forward through an honest account of the first years of starting a truly sustainable farm/homestead is simply invaluable. And coming from an entertaining couple that clearly have love and respect for each other makes it refreshing and that much easier to listen to.The only caveat were a couple of instances where they made energy efficiency recommendations for existing homes, which occasionally were unintentionally mis-leading. To be clear, I would absolutely recommend them for consulting on a passive solar build; they know their stuff and are living it. However, there are a LOT of factors that come into play when changing an existing home (climate, age/construction, current conditions, lifestyle, etc). You can damage your home taking suggestions out of context. Find a Building Analyst or Home Performance contractor in YOUR area, then take Stacy’s advice and make sure they have real experience and are living it themselves — Please keep up the great work guys. It is truly inspiring.
