“The poorest nations, already beset by man-made disasters, have been threatened by a natural one: the possibility of climatic changes in the monsoon belt and perhaps throughout the world. The implications for global food and population policies are ominous.” – HENRY KISSINGER

Oyster Mushrooms are a relatively low-effort, decently nutritious, immune-boosting fungi!
Red worms are awesome producers of worm castings/compost.
Duckweed is a high-protein, mini lettuce-like plant that grows atop slow moving water and can be used to supplement fish diets (up to 20%). Soldier larvae (up to 50%) are another option–likely coming to the farm soon!
Although I mention in the video that I might not make mushrooms in the future, I don’t regret learning how to do so. There are many cool applications for fungi, from medicinal to remediative, and on balance, they are relatively low-effort after setting up the medium & inoculating.
Also in this video, IAF works on establishing more of the well-understood processes that cycle energy through our systems:
Starting a red worm bin to turn scraps into worm castings and liquid fertilizer for potted plants
Receiving duckweed, and setting it up to start producing an initial population to then pull from and supplement fish diet. They love it, and it feels healthy to add living foods into their diet. Goldfish are omnivores after all!
Considering black solider larvae also, to turn even more scraps into a tiny bit of compost and a lot of larvae, which can also be used for fish food
And a crazy cold front & rain rolls through Northern California, dumping rain on the central valley (including Oroville)
a period during which solar activity diminishes, resulting in drastic climatic and geophysical changes to our planet. These include increased galactic cosmic rays (GCRs), seismic activity, and volcanism; the latter often results in a global reduction in temperatures (see “the year without a summer” — and much more on the IAF wiki).
