Ben Falk is a permaculture designer based in Moretown, Vermont. In this video, he speaks about different aspects of homesteading and cold weather, notably his wood cook-stove which also heats water, and his compost-powered greenhouse heating system. He also talks about the importance of being engaged with the land around us, and how gardening is just basically awesome!

If you live in cold weather, this video is a must see.  I was really impressed with the water tube heating of the greenhouse, with the heat supplied by his compost pile.  The ducks are pretty cool too!
