A spring fed gravity flow water system is the ultimate when it comes to a reliable, independent water system. While not everyone is blessed with such a treasure, those who do have a year-round springhead on their property should seriously consider tapping into it as their water source.
But how does one go about doing this? How can the real source of the water be found? How can the water be captured? How can the spring be protected from contaminated run-off water? The answer to these questions and more are demonstrated in this DVD as Bob Jorgensen develops an actual spring from start to finish using a simple, yet effective, time-proven method.

In this eminently practical DVD, Bob Jorgensen demonstrates a wide variety of tools that may be just plain useful on a country homestead.
It is quite possible that you didn’t even know what many of these tools are used for, or you may not have even known they existed. In fact, we think you have probably never seen such an assortment of tools, old-fashioned and newer, in one place!
While some power tools are exhibited, the thrust of this DVD is to demonstrate the hand tools that may be used if one is unable to obtain fuel or electricity.

During that time, they gained an entirely new respect for the role of the wood cook stove and learned to evaluate their features….

In recent years, there has been a growing interest in many of these simple home remedies. Concern about health preparedness during disasters as well as an explosion in natural methods of treatment have fueled this movement.
Hydrotherapy, sometimes called water therapy, was one of the simplest, least expensive and most effective areas of treatment used by those of yester-year. Now you have the opportunity to learn how it’s done!
