Dr. Lenny is one of the most informed general chemists in the world. He holds an immense amount of knowledge about how things work, from a mechanistic standpoint. If you have any questions, feel free to ask them and we will gradually develop a big picture view of where things come from.
The first thing to do is to know how to take care of yourself. The world is a chemical factory and there are some things you need and other things that you just don't need. Start the clean-up by checking howdt this article and asking me to explain deeper the whys and wherefores of what it may mean, in a personal sense, a global sense and also an applied dynamic sense.
New players are encouraged to think for themselves - rewards flow from howdt side of the box ideas on how to grow food of the highest nutritional content. Also - get your key compounds : supplies will get tougher later. Ask Dr. Lenny about purchases from the Chem Stores - lugol's iodine, colloidal gold and Orrnus are available for barter of goods and services. We also have links to natural wool thru KelleyGreen. Hope to be in community with you soon - at one of our model sites.
