An important distinction: Permaculture is not the same kind of gardening as organic gardening. Mediterranean climate hugel trenches, fabuluous clay soil high in nutrients, self-watering containers with hugel layers, keyhole composting with low hugel raised beds, thick Back to Eden Wood chips mulch distinguished from Bark chips , using as many native plants as possible Have you seen what’s happening over there?

Why do you feel safe when mankind has only proven to be able to survive 12, years at a stretch? Forums: greening the desert personal challenges.

Optional ‘thank-you’ note:. I’m going to be out of the house in a couple of months and am looking for advice on what to do from here. I like August Hurtel. Think about not going to college. Li Lee. Why Do so many people from Illinois love Arizona? It is drying up because the ground water has been pumped nearly dry. My suggestion for an 18 year old is to not get credit, pay for everything with cash. Here is how to find properties available for outright purchase although there is waiting period to see if the owner pays their taxes.

Yes the utility companies will allow you to do that. If it’s property find out what property is going for, problems of the area, how to investigate flood maps, etc. You should end up with notebooks that have the prices of everything in your life.

How much is a 2×6 at the diffferent hardware stores, How often do they go on sale. It can save a marriage and a family. I’m not trying to feed myself of land for at least a few decades when the land has enough humus, windbreaks, water harvesting ect to do a sort of greening the desert type scenario. Joseph Lofthouse. It didn’t work out well for me, or for my brothers or sisters, or for my woman, or for any of my children.

Those in my family without college experience are every bit as well off as those that went to college.

It seems to me that the primary purpose of study at a university or college is to turn people into debt slaves for the rest of their lives. When I look at the people in my village that I grew up with, the ones I most respect today are those that didn’t go to college, but remained on the farm. The money your parents have set aside might cover about 6 months worth of college.

That seems like it’s not enough to bother with. Perhaps write it off, or perhaps your parents would consider using it to pay for week-long training courses from time to time in your field of interest. Sheesh, I’m opinionated today, but you did ask for it To continue my rant, I’d recommend deciding what you want to do, and start doing it If you start farming today, then in 4 years you will know more about farming than could be taught during a farming curriculum at the university.

D Nikolls. Things may be a bit different down there, but IMO a degree is a waste of time for most people. It doesn’t really sound like you’re interested in a career that really needs one; engineering, medicine, etc.

If that’s the case, why bother? Even if 12K could cover your degree, you won’t be getting those years back. Those were people with a very clear job as a target; mostly they needed a masters degree. Buying land with all the money you have strikes me as madness. Get a job; make sure that where-ever you’re moving has work, and be the guy that is always on time, well groomed, paying attention to detail.

If this doesn’t get you advancement, move on until it does. Live in a van or a shared house; save, save, save. Read, experiment with growing on a small scale, collect quality tools as the opportunity arises to acquire them cheaply I think wwoofing right away would make it hard to settle in to working for a few years Beyond that I agree very strongly with point 4 and 5 Li Lee’s advice.

I have some quibbles with 1 and 3: 1 Credit; I use a credit card for everything that doesn’t have a cash discount. The trucks were usually very low mileage, but they were all gas guzzlers, so the good condition was offset by very high fuel bills Ann Torrence. Don’t touch it. People with emergency funds do not get in a devastating cycle of setting aside their goals to fund their crises. Life happens, be ready.

If you want to try college, take the classes you can afford to pay cash for thanks Mom and Dad. No student credit cards or loans.

I treasure my college experience, but I didn’t come out with a mound of debt either. Get a part-time job, one that gives you some skills that you can sell for the rest of your life.

Learn to drive an excavator, shear sheep, shoe horses seriously, there is a shortage of shearers and farriers. Bonus points for starting a business. Save some cash from every paycheck. Learning to save now has two upsides: you have the money for an eventual land purchase, and you don’t develop expensive habits to support. Connect with Jennifer Wadsworth’s greening the desert projects if you are in Phoenix.

Help with a community garden if you want to learn that skill. Get a library card, it’s free. There’s a great thread here on 99 books to read in permaculture as a sort of equivalency to a degree. That ought to keep you productive until your special path becomes clear. Happy Birthday! Dillon: Just like a used car lot there are newer and older vehicles.

The deal is that a city or county vehicle was maintained. I agree with Ann don’t spend the money you have only the money you earn. Without a degree you are competing for jobs with illegals of who in Az many employers prefer. Nobody has ever asked me at the farmer’s market for my credentials as a farmer They are right out there on the table for anyone to see.

Su Ba. Location: Big Island, Hawaii ‘ elevation, 60″ avg. Vocational type schools may offer welding, engine repair, heavy equipment, carpentry, etc. I don’t know what is available in your area, but it never hurts to learn skills that may be valuable on a farm.

Dale Hodgins. Many who discount the idea of higher education, didn’t train for something useful that they liked doing. Find 10 people who completed education in something useful and are working in that field. Then find 10 people who didn’t do that. Compare their lifestyles and stuff. Then decide which group you’re going to join. I know many people who have seen great improvement in their earnings after completion of training. Many have increased their spending and they have not paid down their loans.

The one with the truck, stumbles into many more opportunities to earn and learn than the one without. Joylynn Hardesty. If you choose to try out college, you will be more productive taking online courses. Be sure to do this at a ‘real’ college. Scams do exist, research your school. While I did not complete a degree, I found that classroom time was often wasted time, and can be better used. There are some classes you may not need to take, rather ‘test out of’. I know of one person who earned most of a BS degree in less than a year, buying the books and self studying, not paying for the class but a reduced cost of a test instead, still receiving credit for the class.

Granted, you MUST be a self starter for these options to work. Learn speed reading. There are online free options for this. We do not need to focus on each individual word to have comprehension. Even if you decide college is not for you, learning is a lifelong activity. Happy birthday! Alex Veidel. Hi Jack, I’m also from Illinois. I’m not going to pretend I know what’s best for your situation, but we’ve got a lot in common situation-wise. I’m 21, from Illinois, and just got married and moved out of the house myself this last November.

The price of land in this state is absolutely ridiculous, not mention the property taxes that go along with them. Renting is almost equally as absurd. Renting is obviously a better decision than a mortgage on a 2, sq ft house, but you’ll find it bleeds your income regardless; it’s quite difficult to get on your feet, even with a decent job.

It’s can be difficult to find a place to set up camp, particularly in Illinois, but if you can pull it off you’re gonna find yourself saving a lot of money.

Family is a good place to start. My wife and I are tiny house-ers ourselvs, but we have friends just started full time RV living. You can actually pick up an old RV for pretty dang cheap. Winters are crazy here in Illinois lately, but moving down south could provide great conditions for winter RV-ing, as well as open up more options for parking your abode. I also echo sentiments about not going to college.

You’re 18; stay mobile and keep your options open until you find that one thing you love and can’t live without. Generally speaking, early college prolongs adult-hood and education is wasted on the young.

You’ll appreciate waiting to finish your education until you have a framework to plug it all into. Woofing is a good way to do that. Try something that you have never done before, get a job that teaches you something interesting and useful, and be aware of what is around you ,always looking for the great things that are around the corner.

Michael Bushman. When you are reading advice, remember, most people are telling you what they wish they could do rather than what might actually be best for you in your situation. Getting a college degree used to be a no-brainer and if you don’t go into debt, still is for the most part. That said, many plumbers and electricians make FAR more than your average college graduate and don’t get into the debt trap to get there. People get that real estate is a cycle but they still tend to ignore the reality of it.

AZ got hit hard by the bubble but is recovering, I don’t pay much attention to that market but overall the market is at a highish point and while it may keep going for a couple of years, it WILL fall again. That of course applies more to housing than raw land which is probably depressed due to the water situation so it probably isn’t the worse time to buy. So here is my advice. You are young, still don’t know what all you want to do and don’t yet have all the skills to tack some major piece of raw land.

Talk to your parents and see if they wouldn’t help you buy a house with some land. Learn to fix and upgrade the property and make it a paradise while you go to school. Look for a place that is on the border of a better area and wait till you find one that is a good deal.

Places nearer the school are going to be more expensive but rent better, places in the hood will be cheaper but often more land. Your work improving it will be rewarded with equity, and you can still go to school, plus between roomates and your little bootlegged in cottage, you will have money to fix the place up.

I think the value of an education is being a bit overlooked here. Sure, if your ideal is off grid sustenance living you probably don’t need much of an education.

However I disagree that degrees are worthless. I hold a degree and work in my degree field. My husband is the same. We would both like to continue our formal education at the same time we learn from experience and others.

This is my opinion, go to community college, take a variety of classes, learn a variety of things and get an associates in something. You could easily do that on the 12k your parents have provided and an associates makes you far more marketable than nothing. It is also my opinion that money is just a necessity of life and setting up a household of any sort requires it. People are living longer and healthier but injuries happen and injuries on a homestead really happen.

I would want an injury to not threaten my security. Because when you are homesteading if you break your back and can’t farm, then you aren’t eating unless you can pay someone to do that work or buy food. Do you have a clear plan with want you want to do with the land? A few acres in Arizona seems like too little for the sort of systems that provide a decent living. I want the few acres so I can earthwork it and establish some trees to provide shade to the soil, stop the desiccating wind, ect.

I would also rather make all mistakes on a less expensive, smaller scale, and get some real experience. Its a marketable skill here in flat illinois, but I dont know about AZ. I’m not really looking for the land to provide me income, but rather save me money, particularly on housing. Will Meginley. A tale of two diplomas: I graduated from a public university in the western United States with TWO bachelors degrees – forestry, and natural resource conservation.

During the summer I worked in wildland firefighting or other forestry-related jobs, and occasionally took semesters off as well to work longer and save up money. From the time I started college to the time I graduated ten years had passed, but I graduated with no tuition debt and six years of work experience in fields directly related to my degree.

Since graduating, it’s never taken me longer than two months of searching to find a job, I have never had to take a job unrelated to what I studied, and I doubt I’ll ever have to. My fiance has an undergraduate degree in archaeology from a public university in the midwestern US and a masters from a university in the UK. Unlike me, she went straight through, relying on loans to cover tuition. Other than a short multi-week summer “field school” she graduated with no work experience in her field of study.

Several years after graduating, she has yet to find a job in her field and has all but given up on ever finding one. This a makes you more likely to take it seriously instead of spending four plus years in a drunken haze and b forces you to more carefully consider whether your love of learning about underwater basket weaving is worth spending 20k a year on or whether reading a few books on the subject and getting involved with it as a hobby while you work a day job might not be a bit more appropriate.

In other words: 2 Be realistic about your job prospects if you’re treating a university as a vocational school. If you don’t give two hoots about ever finding work in your field of study and are just out for personal enrichment which was kinda the whole point of universities in the first place then by all means study whatever the hell you want as long as you feel the product is worth the price tag.

Not all quality educations cost a fortune. Not all expensive educations are worthwhile monetary investments. One of the easiest ways to pay your own way is to take advantage of student positions and other minion-level job opportunities in your field while you’re in school.

If that means skipping a few semesters or even years to gain good work experience, so be it. You don’t get any bonus points with prospective employers for graduating in four years or less.

You also don’t get any bonus points for going straight into college from high school. Don’t be afraid to spend a year or two in the working world first saving up some more money, gaining some maturity, and figuring out what you want to do and whether it requires a degree. I would argue that based on the goals you’ve stated here, not only would college NOT be a waste of your time, it would be downright helpful.

You could study any number of topics including forestry, horticulture, range management, soil science, any of the building trades, and architecture that would be useful to you even if you never took a paid position in the field.

For what it’s worth, I also highly recommend wildland firefighting as a way to work your way through college or rapidly accumulate some seed money, especially in the western US.

Today I will do what others won’t, so tomorrow I can do what others can’t. Awesome info. Fire crews get sent far and wide, depending on need, so you see more of the west on someone else’s travel costs.

And some of the best naturalists I’ve met are folks who have spent time on wild land fire crews. Tree planting offers many of the same opportunities. You won’t burn, but you may meet more mosquitos and black flies than you knew existed.

My first degree-related job was on a tree planting crew. Was loads of fun, though I don’t miss the sore lower back very much. If any of that sounds interesting, the feds do all their hiring online via USA jobs.

Search for job series Forestry Technician , Range Technician , or Biological Sciences Technician to explore the different options. Hell, even if none of that looks interesting give the site a once over. They literally hire everything from able seamen to zookeepers there.

If you have even the slightest idea what you might want to do with your life, you can probably find an entry-level position trying it out – especially if you’re willing to relocate. With nothing but a high school diploma you’d be looking for pay grade 2 and 3 positions. Mike Feddersen. Something to consider, I met a young guy, around 26 years old. All his friends had went for their four year degrees, they now had gotten spouses, they all had student loans they were paying on. A mortgage, two car payments, insurance and bills.

The kid had not gone to college, he had gotten semi training and spent the last eight years having a blast getting paid to see the country. A majority of his weekly income was saved, no rent, no car payment, and the company paid his health insurance. There are companies in every state with great equipment. God bless. Hello Jack! I am 21 and I have been doing the college route with geology and anthropology.

College is worth it if it is training you for a specific skill sets or technical skills. I would only go into debt if your desired job has had consistent hiring through economic upswings and downturns. The classic example for this is If you are not sure what you want to do I encourage you to take a gap year and work and try to establish important skills before pursuing education. Learn to set your own goals and meet them even if you don’t tell them to anyone. Learn to observe and take detailed notes quickly.

Also remember to know the limitations and assumptions of your observations. Learn to listen, learn, and convincingly speak to people with hugely different experiences from yours. It’s how to change minds and create opportunities.

I would also chose a climate where you expect to live later. In many case you can start plants from seed very inexpensively if you have somewhere to leave them. You have time, so you can accumulate lots of value, energy , nutrient, and carbon in plants if you start now.

Depending on the scale and location it may also make sense to build an inexpensive automated drip irrigation system. You’re welcome to message me with questions. Cristo Balete.

Newton, has great people who work in our district. We have great principals and individuals working in our schools supporting our teachers and students. We need to do a better job of communicating within our district as well as between our district and parents. If communication was improved upon on both sides of the table from board, admin, principals, teachers and parents we have a greater chance of understanding what is going on in our district and why.

I think Newton is a pretty great place to raise our kids, but I would love to see Newton known for outstanding acceptance of all students and having creative methods for teaching our kids. Growing up can be hard enough, but having a place where kids can come and feel welcome and accepted is important in my book. What do.

Readers who believe the newspaper has erred may request a correction by contacting Editor Abigail Pelzer at , Ext. By carrier 13 weeks I have, however, met several individuals who have been impacted by a terrorist attack in one way or another during my career as a reporter.

This terror attack reminded me much of the Orlando nightclub shootings in the way that it targeted a demographic of young people.

The memorial drew in a number of residents who had ties to the Orlando community and even drew attendees from Orlando. There were 49 torches that were lit during the memorial, which represented the 49 individuals who had died in the shooting. Covering this event really opened my eyes to how many families and friends are affected by these acts of violence.

An Orlando resident had written and performed a song and there was silence, a lot of silence. In the midst of the sadness, I still felt a sense of peace.

I think there is something to be said about communities who come together during tragic times. It makes me think about what will happen next, do we have to be afraid to go to events and gatherings where there are large crowds, to airports and movie theaters? Will he stand for unity instead of hatred? Contact Kayla Langmaid at klangmaid newtondailynews. Just as sticking your cash in a mattress is a bad strategy when it comes to investment, inaction in power is a bad strategy when it comes to politics.

Democrats understand that political capital must be used, not to pass popular legislation but to fundamentally change the nature of the political game itself. Democrats do not see Obamacare — a piece of legislation that cost them the House, the Senate and, eventually, the presidency — as a disaster area. They see it as an investment in a leftist future: By making Americans accustomed to the idea that the government is responsible for universal coverage, they understand that any future failures will be attributed to lack of government, not an excess of it.

Ted Cruz, R-Texas, understood that in when he attempted to block Obamacare funding. He quite rightly explained that once Obamacare went into effect, it would be nearly impossible to dismantle it.

That became obvious this year, just four years after its full implementation, when congressional Republicans obviously have no political will to get rid of Obamacare at all. This is the difference between Republicans and Democrats: Democrats see their radical legislative moves as building blocks for the future. Republicans, afraid that their carefully crafted tower of electability will come crumbling down, make no radical legislative moves.

Obama implemented the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, knowing full well that a Republican president could get rid of it with the stroke of a pen. And Obama was completely right. Finally, President Trump has pledged to get rid of it And everyone knows that he is willing to trade away DACA enforcement for border-wall funding. The Democratic status quo will win out, one way or another. Now, quickly: Name the last transformational conservative change Republicans have made — a change to the field of play; any change that would redound to the detriment of Democrats.

Republicans have unified control of government once again. But they seem less willing to use it than ever, afraid that their tenuous control will dissipate. That must end. His board colleagues have repeatedly affirmed his leadership by selecting him to be their president. Joe is up for re-election on Sept.

He was elected by his fellow trustees as board president in and continues to serve in that position in the current term.

Like many public entities, DMACC is facing some big challenges, including serious funding cuts from the legislature, but also some big opportunities. The possibilities this opens to DMACC and its students, its programs and consequentially to the economy of the city, county and area — even the state — are amazing. Joe Pugel is a key person in.

It is important to our community to keep him on the board at this intense and critical time. Please join me in voting for him on Tuesday, Sept. It is a well-managed college. I believe that it is important to have a DMACC trustee from Newton and especially one who serves as the board president.

Finally, he played a significant role in negotiating the gift of the entire former Maytag corporate office buildings to DMACC.

Joe has been and will continue to be involved with the City of Newton, Newton Development Corporation and DMACC to see that we attract businesses and organizations to occupy those buildings, bringing new residents, employment and prosperity to our community.

County moving forward with unpaved roads changes By Jamee A. The level of service will be based on traffic counts, pavement type, roadway geometric and other data used in accepted engineering design for the county engineer, the Iowa Department of Transportation and the Federal Highway Administration. The policy will set the minimum design standards the county will follow for the construction and reconstruction of roads and bridges.

For unpaved roads, new construction of granular surfaced roads will have a foot finished top. Reconstruction of granular surfaced roads will have a 28 foot finished top and a foot minimum may be used when terrain, right of way or sufficient drainage deems it necessary. Roads with an existing width of less than 28 feet will have a minimum finished top of that pre-existing width if unable to be widened. There will be two additional public hearings on Sept. Supervisor Doug Cupples asked if all those affected by the change in designation have been contacted and notified.

Officials concerned about growing inmate population DES MOINES AP — Officials of a jail in central Iowa want to open three empty housing units amid an increase in inmates, but county supervisors hope for other efforts to reduce the jail population. The jail neared its maximum capacity of just over 1, inmates at one point this year.

Jail director Frank Marasco asked the county Board of Supervisors in May to open the three housing units and add an additional 15 detention officers to staff them.

The three units have space for nearly additional inmates. The tool would help officers determine which offenders can be released early. The strongest Atlantic Ocean hurricane ever recorded passed almost direct-.

Happy Birthday! Dillon: Just like a used car lot there are newer and older vehicles. The deal is that a city or county vehicle was maintained. I agree with Ann don’t spend the money you have only the money you earn.

Without a degree you are competing for jobs with illegals of who in Az many employers prefer. Nobody has ever asked me at the farmer’s market for my credentials as a farmer They are right out there on the table for anyone to see. Su Ba.

Location: Big Island, Hawaii ‘ elevation, 60″ avg. Vocational type schools may offer welding, engine repair, heavy equipment, carpentry, etc. I don’t know what is available in your area, but it never hurts to learn skills that may be valuable on a farm.

Dale Hodgins. Many who discount the idea of higher education, didn’t train for something useful that they liked doing. Find 10 people who completed education in something useful and are working in that field. Then find 10 people who didn’t do that. Compare their lifestyles and stuff. Then decide which group you’re going to join.

I know many people who have seen great improvement in their earnings after completion of training. Many have increased their spending and they have not paid down their loans. The one with the truck, stumbles into many more opportunities to earn and learn than the one without.

Joylynn Hardesty. If you choose to try out college, you will be more productive taking online courses. Be sure to do this at a ‘real’ college. Scams do exist, research your school. While I did not complete a degree, I found that classroom time was often wasted time, and can be better used.

There are some classes you may not need to take, rather ‘test out of’. I know of one person who earned most of a BS degree in less than a year, buying the books and self studying, not paying for the class but a reduced cost of a test instead, still receiving credit for the class.

Granted, you MUST be a self starter for these options to work. Learn speed reading. There are online free options for this. We do not need to focus on each individual word to have comprehension. Even if you decide college is not for you, learning is a lifelong activity. Happy birthday!

Alex Veidel. Hi Jack, I’m also from Illinois. I’m not going to pretend I know what’s best for your situation, but we’ve got a lot in common situation-wise. I’m 21, from Illinois, and just got married and moved out of the house myself this last November. The price of land in this state is absolutely ridiculous, not mention the property taxes that go along with them.

Renting is almost equally as absurd. Renting is obviously a better decision than a mortgage on a 2, sq ft house, but you’ll find it bleeds your income regardless; it’s quite difficult to get on your feet, even with a decent job. It’s can be difficult to find a place to set up camp, particularly in Illinois, but if you can pull it off you’re gonna find yourself saving a lot of money.

Family is a good place to start. My wife and I are tiny house-ers ourselvs, but we have friends just started full time RV living. You can actually pick up an old RV for pretty dang cheap.

Winters are crazy here in Illinois lately, but moving down south could provide great conditions for winter RV-ing, as well as open up more options for parking your abode. I also echo sentiments about not going to college. You’re 18; stay mobile and keep your options open until you find that one thing you love and can’t live without. Generally speaking, early college prolongs adult-hood and education is wasted on the young.

You’ll appreciate waiting to finish your education until you have a framework to plug it all into. Woofing is a good way to do that. Try something that you have never done before, get a job that teaches you something interesting and useful, and be aware of what is around you ,always looking for the great things that are around the corner. Michael Bushman. When you are reading advice, remember, most people are telling you what they wish they could do rather than what might actually be best for you in your situation.

Getting a college degree used to be a no-brainer and if you don’t go into debt, still is for the most part. That said, many plumbers and electricians make FAR more than your average college graduate and don’t get into the debt trap to get there. People get that real estate is a cycle but they still tend to ignore the reality of it. AZ got hit hard by the bubble but is recovering, I don’t pay much attention to that market but overall the market is at a highish point and while it may keep going for a couple of years, it WILL fall again.

That of course applies more to housing than raw land which is probably depressed due to the water situation so it probably isn’t the worse time to buy. So here is my advice. You are young, still don’t know what all you want to do and don’t yet have all the skills to tack some major piece of raw land. Talk to your parents and see if they wouldn’t help you buy a house with some land. Learn to fix and upgrade the property and make it a paradise while you go to school.

Look for a place that is on the border of a better area and wait till you find one that is a good deal. Places nearer the school are going to be more expensive but rent better, places in the hood will be cheaper but often more land. Your work improving it will be rewarded with equity, and you can still go to school, plus between roomates and your little bootlegged in cottage, you will have money to fix the place up.

I think the value of an education is being a bit overlooked here. Sure, if your ideal is off grid sustenance living you probably don’t need much of an education. However I disagree that degrees are worthless. I hold a degree and work in my degree field. My husband is the same. We would both like to continue our formal education at the same time we learn from experience and others. This is my opinion, go to community college, take a variety of classes, learn a variety of things and get an associates in something.

You could easily do that on the 12k your parents have provided and an associates makes you far more marketable than nothing. It is also my opinion that money is just a necessity of life and setting up a household of any sort requires it. People are living longer and healthier but injuries happen and injuries on a homestead really happen. I would want an injury to not threaten my security.

Because when you are homesteading if you break your back and can’t farm, then you aren’t eating unless you can pay someone to do that work or buy food. Do you have a clear plan with want you want to do with the land?

A few acres in Arizona seems like too little for the sort of systems that provide a decent living. I want the few acres so I can earthwork it and establish some trees to provide shade to the soil, stop the desiccating wind, ect. I would also rather make all mistakes on a less expensive, smaller scale, and get some real experience. Its a marketable skill here in flat illinois, but I dont know about AZ.

I’m not really looking for the land to provide me income, but rather save me money, particularly on housing. Will Meginley. A tale of two diplomas: I graduated from a public university in the western United States with TWO bachelors degrees – forestry, and natural resource conservation.

During the summer I worked in wildland firefighting or other forestry-related jobs, and occasionally took semesters off as well to work longer and save up money. From the time I started college to the time I graduated ten years had passed, but I graduated with no tuition debt and six years of work experience in fields directly related to my degree. Since graduating, it’s never taken me longer than two months of searching to find a job, I have never had to take a job unrelated to what I studied, and I doubt I’ll ever have to.

My fiance has an undergraduate degree in archaeology from a public university in the midwestern US and a masters from a university in the UK. Unlike me, she went straight through, relying on loans to cover tuition. Other than a short multi-week summer “field school” she graduated with no work experience in her field of study. Several years after graduating, she has yet to find a job in her field and has all but given up on ever finding one. This a makes you more likely to take it seriously instead of spending four plus years in a drunken haze and b forces you to more carefully consider whether your love of learning about underwater basket weaving is worth spending 20k a year on or whether reading a few books on the subject and getting involved with it as a hobby while you work a day job might not be a bit more appropriate.

In other words: 2 Be realistic about your job prospects if you’re treating a university as a vocational school. If you don’t give two hoots about ever finding work in your field of study and are just out for personal enrichment which was kinda the whole point of universities in the first place then by all means study whatever the hell you want as long as you feel the product is worth the price tag.

Not all quality educations cost a fortune. Not all expensive educations are worthwhile monetary investments. One of the easiest ways to pay your own way is to take advantage of student positions and other minion-level job opportunities in your field while you’re in school. If that means skipping a few semesters or even years to gain good work experience, so be it.

You don’t get any bonus points with prospective employers for graduating in four years or less. You also don’t get any bonus points for going straight into college from high school. Don’t be afraid to spend a year or two in the working world first saving up some more money, gaining some maturity, and figuring out what you want to do and whether it requires a degree. I would argue that based on the goals you’ve stated here, not only would college NOT be a waste of your time, it would be downright helpful.

You could study any number of topics including forestry, horticulture, range management, soil science, any of the building trades, and architecture that would be useful to you even if you never took a paid position in the field.

For what it’s worth, I also highly recommend wildland firefighting as a way to work your way through college or rapidly accumulate some seed money, especially in the western US. Today I will do what others won’t, so tomorrow I can do what others can’t. Awesome info. Fire crews get sent far and wide, depending on need, so you see more of the west on someone else’s travel costs.

And some of the best naturalists I’ve met are folks who have spent time on wild land fire crews. Tree planting offers many of the same opportunities. You won’t burn, but you may meet more mosquitos and black flies than you knew existed. My first degree-related job was on a tree planting crew. Was loads of fun, though I don’t miss the sore lower back very much.

If any of that sounds interesting, the feds do all their hiring online via USA jobs. Search for job series Forestry Technician , Range Technician , or Biological Sciences Technician to explore the different options. Hell, even if none of that looks interesting give the site a once over.

They literally hire everything from able seamen to zookeepers there. If you have even the slightest idea what you might want to do with your life, you can probably find an entry-level position trying it out – especially if you’re willing to relocate. With nothing but a high school diploma you’d be looking for pay grade 2 and 3 positions. Mike Feddersen. Something to consider, I met a young guy, around 26 years old.

All his friends had went for their four year degrees, they now had gotten spouses, they all had student loans they were paying on. A mortgage, two car payments, insurance and bills. The kid had not gone to college, he had gotten semi training and spent the last eight years having a blast getting paid to see the country. A majority of his weekly income was saved, no rent, no car payment, and the company paid his health insurance.

There are companies in every state with great equipment. God bless. Hello Jack! I am 21 and I have been doing the college route with geology and anthropology. College is worth it if it is training you for a specific skill sets or technical skills. I would only go into debt if your desired job has had consistent hiring through economic upswings and downturns.

The classic example for this is If you are not sure what you want to do I encourage you to take a gap year and work and try to establish important skills before pursuing education. Learn to set your own goals and meet them even if you don’t tell them to anyone. Learn to observe and take detailed notes quickly. Also remember to know the limitations and assumptions of your observations. Learn to listen, learn, and convincingly speak to people with hugely different experiences from yours.

It’s how to change minds and create opportunities. I would also chose a climate where you expect to live later. In many case you can start plants from seed very inexpensively if you have somewhere to leave them.

You have time, so you can accumulate lots of value, energy , nutrient, and carbon in plants if you start now. Depending on the scale and location it may also make sense to build an inexpensive automated drip irrigation system. You’re welcome to message me with questions. Cristo Balete. This is a bunch of fascinating advice. When I first read the topic I thought of a one-liner. Don’t claim you know anything until you are over Even then life will prove you wrong.

The thing about school is that it teaches you things. It gives you options. You hang out with other people who are interested in improving their minds. College friends often end up being friends for life, especially if you have the same interests. This is the time of your life where investing in your mind is your very best investment.

Once you get stuff, you won’t have nearly enough time to invest in your mind. You will be chasing the all mighty dollar, and your attention will be split in several directions. Did you ever hear about the School of Hard Knocks? That’s what you will attend, and it’s tough. It all seems to go well until you are about 30, and then it gets tougher and tougher.

College may or may not be about getting a degree. But if we don’t educate ourselves in a formal and continuous way while we are young and unencumbered, because we learn to stick at something, we learn to hang in there even when it sucks , later in life we can feel very intimated by people who do have degrees, who do have higher education.

That is what sets a person back later in life, is their fear of not knowing how the educated world works, and you’re going to come in contact with it whether you farm or become a lawyer or work in a grocery store. You don’t want to shut down your options, because eventually your best friend will be your mind, the satisfaction of learning new things, of understanding how things work, whether it’s chemistry or engineering or medicine or business.

If you focus on developing the person you are by learning as much as you possibly can, coming up with a major of sorts so you can try it out on paper first, there are endless, endless social and personal benefits waiting for you in the next years. Farming is no small endeavor. It involves many big complicated biological sciences like chemistry, biochemistry, plant physiology, soil biology, entomology, toxicology, fluid mechanics, engineering, just to name a few.

Marine biology is fascinating. There are unbelievable plants, animals, fish, crustaceans, bacteria, volcanoes. You might get set on fire by some of these or none of these, but whatever it is that sets you on fire in the real world, you are most likely to find it as soon as possible in a college environment.

This is the vast options time of your life. John Master. Consider studying in the direction of natural medicine, naturopathic, homeopathic, holistic wellness, acupuncture, physical therapy, nutritionist, herbalist, chiropractic, personal trainer, biological dentist. They know when they go to “the doctor” with a problem they will just get a prescription with side effects they can count on or something to cover up underlying symptoms.

Most of these types of people end up owning properties with permaculture or organic type gardens without the pressure of gardening for a living not that that is bad by any means but if you don’t have the knowledge and the land it can be a daunting endeavor to profit from when you are young.

Most of those professions can live in an apt if need be and work out of a rented office, some have low cost of schooling and high profit business as most of their work is time or advice being offered. The will list water needs, typical elevation and sun needs that match the desert. They also list whether it is butterfly larval, edible, and so on. Another great place here is called Native Seed Search. You can get seeds from them online, and they are typically AZ local seeds, often from local tribes, or from neighboring states.

There are even some rare, interesting ones, like native, wild tepary beans, for example. I mention this in case it can help you in deciding how much land you wish to purchase, for what you can grow on it. Brad Lancaster -the water harvesting guy – lives down in Tucson so a lot of his information is absolutely perfect for Tucson and phoenix climate, with little to no changes.

Even if you don’t want them eating your structures. If you use a lot of native plants on your acreage, you’ll want to be careful about nitrogen levels in the soil. A lot of native plants here are so good at using what little nitrogen there is that they can struggle or even die if the soil is too nitrogen rich. Getting used to them for planting can be kind of a trip, because you definitely do some things a bit differently.

Not hard, but worth exploring before you start any major planting, as sometimes things won’t work as expected. Also, having enough cill hours for some fruiting trees can be a problem, sometimes, depending on what elevation you end up at. Things grow slower in the desert, especially if they are native plants.

Also, a botanist acquaintance was discussing forests in general with me and mentioned that desert forests in this kind of desert, with low rainfall, high heat, and high evaporation don’t have the upper story trees like forests in other areas do. So I figure with food forests, likely that’s going to hold true as well, to keep it sustainable.

I haven’t tested that yet; would be curious if anyone else has? I hope you really enjoy it here? I moved to S. AZ 10 years ago and I love it. Wayne Mackenzie. Best bang for the buck when it comes to AZ. For a few more thousand, you can get a nice 5 acre parcel in the Sulphur Springs Valley. Joseph Walker. Hey, for what it is worth Listen to everyone. Trust yourself without question. My only advice is; save your money for the day inspiration arrives, you will know. My only criticism of your plan ; forget the idea of retirement , life is to wonderful to ever stop exploring , and with the attitude you have now, you will be a very busy and in demand old man.

Chris Badgett. My best advice is run lots of little experiments and always challenge the assumptions of others, yourself, and society.

The level of service will be based on traffic counts, pavement type, roadway geometric and other data used in accepted engineering design for the county engineer, the Iowa Department of Transportation and the Federal Highway Administration.

The policy will set the minimum design standards the county will follow for the construction and reconstruction of roads and bridges. For unpaved roads, new construction of granular surfaced roads will have a foot finished top. Reconstruction of granular surfaced roads will have a 28 foot finished top and a foot minimum may be used when terrain, right of way or sufficient drainage deems it necessary.

Roads with an existing width of less than 28 feet will have a minimum finished top of that pre-existing width if unable to be widened.

There will be two additional public hearings on Sept. Supervisor Doug Cupples asked if all those affected by the change in designation have been contacted and notified.

Officials concerned about growing inmate population DES MOINES AP — Officials of a jail in central Iowa want to open three empty housing units amid an increase in inmates, but county supervisors hope for other efforts to reduce the jail population. The jail neared its maximum capacity of just over 1, inmates at one point this year. Jail director Frank Marasco asked the county Board of Supervisors in May to open the three housing units and add an additional 15 detention officers to staff them.

The three units have space for nearly additional inmates. The tool would help officers determine which offenders can be released early. The strongest Atlantic Ocean hurricane ever recorded passed almost direct-.
