Carey's News Letter / Report on 1013

Hello to all my AP friends,

I sure have missed y’all! This has been an interesting and exciting year for me. Unfortunately we haven't been able to do any Aquaponics other than stock our new ponds. I just wanted to stop by and update anyone who might be interested, in what I have been doing.The following is a brief of what we did this year. *Pictures will follow later. Please look for them in Album named "TongZhao 2013".


As some of you may know, I am a self-proclaimed…

One more step – Part two ~ Sorry, lots of words and no pics (at this time)

Good news! Merry X-mass all! On Christmas Eve, I received a call that lasted about four hours and in conclusion I got a wonderful X-Mass present in the form of a committed Angel Investor. Phase one will begin as soon as I finish negotiating and sign an agreement with the landlord, (hopefully within the next month).

Phase One will be concentrating on the forest pasture to increase my egg and chicken production from my current two hundred hens to a possible five…

One More Step!

Maybe dreams really do come true. I’m only in initial negotiations at this time (as of yesterday), and there will be a thousand and one hurdles to jump before I can actually claim the existence of my concept institute, “Ma’s Greensmart Institute”, but it finally has a glimmer of hope.


It seems that both ladies, Fate and Destiny have kissed my cheeks. My new farm will be located in the same village, no more than a quarter mile from my experimental garden. It is a fifty-acre…

Swimming ponds turns greener with Carey’s Smart Garden Water Works Division

Nature has set the rules and as a steward of her lands, I abide. Thus it is, in these times, I feel the necessity to change the way we think and live. Gone are the days of wanton spending. Gone are the days of gilt free bliss as oil extracts the real cost.


Imagine if white men did not conquer the Americas but learned to live in harmony. What wondrous sciences we would have achieved with that kind of knowledge combination; with wisdom, a sense of spiritually and respect,…

My constant personal fear: (Personal psychobabble)

What do I fear? The same thing that may give us a chance at restructuring the way we (humans) do things…or throw us back into serfdom and the new Dark Age: Global unrest and the collapsing of governments.


Food security seems to be an issue that escapes most people, even those within the industry. It seems that a lot of people with good intentions and ideas are too focused on their own little whatever to be able to cooperate and conclusively draw a plan of action and most…

Living on 5 Mu of Land: A Road to Self-Sufficiency – Sustainability in Rural Beijing

This was written several years ago for another group but I think some of you might still be interested without me having to rewrite. The practice and theory is still pretty much the same; just on a bigger scale.

Living on 5 Mu of Land: A Road to Self-Sufficiency – Sustainability in Rural Beijing

Traditional (modern mono-crop farming) gives a Beijing area farmers with five mu (5/6 acre) about five thousand pounds (jin) of corn and another three to five thousand pounds of… Continue

Root-zone heating - Part One

Root zone heating

I'm from Indiana and many years ago I went to collage in Berrien Springs and then Lansing so I know about the wind-chill factor and lake effect. You poor soul! My situation isn't much better; in fact other than the heavy smog (all year long) we have here, it's quite the same. Hot muggy summers and bitter, dry, cold winters.


The following holistic ideas can be used in a layering method to supplement enough heat to grow food even in extremely cold…

Carey’s sustainable mobile food factories ~ Mobile food security in any environment.

Applications: Separate communities and landless institutions.

Separate communities can include: Refugee camps, Military/ Police base, and disciplinary institutions.

Landless institutions can include: Universities and Corporations.


My original title for this article was “Hoarding Water” but as I began I started to drift and eventually am trying to figure out what it is we really need, to be food independent in the smallest space possible. Please comment and feel…
