  • [ – ] MarieCachet reply Hm Hm Hm...
  • [ – ] Elvendream reply I couldn't keep my eyes away from the baby, have to rewatch now :(
  • [ – ] All_Nighter reply How do you like your leaves, soft or crispy?
  • [ – ] Seifer_the_lizard_king reply To a lot of us watching and preparing to be parents, your channel is a 101 of parenthood man., keep up the great work there.
    • [ – ] ThuleanPerspective parent reply Yeah, it's like a "do"... and also "what NOT to do". :-/
      • Seifer_the_lizard_king parent reply Of course, but the "do" in your case is infinitely more valuable as the "what not to do"s are all but shoved in my face on a daily basis. I didn't have the most conservative upbringing myself (If you know what i mean by that), but one has to first become the master over himself if his family and children are to be safe, successful (I don't mean in terms of wealth) and "free". The internet and all of the information that great "woke" people such as yourself put out there for us is part of this new Renaissance where European men are discovering what it means to be glorious *nod* and well, great men. I will be doing my part to teach my children about European and English history i.e before the arrival of Christianity (I'm native Briton). I've taken a lot from your videos, thanks again Varg, it's appreciated.
  • [ – ] JaymeLouisLiardi reply In less than 10 minutes you summed up the entire useful information I learned at university studying Sustainability for 4 years...It's amazing how gardening is the perfect metaphor to learn about life despite the anti-nature conditions of the Modern World. Thank you
  • Arminius reply One of the most educational videos so far, I hope you're going to do more of this kind! I will do my part in making Europe a forest again!
  • [ – ] DenugalPortmark reply I'm not gonna lie, I didn't hear half of what you said. Your kid is too damn entertaining, even if he is only eating leaves.
  • [ – ] theschnick reply I died when he said "diversity" and then paused for half of a second and said " i hate that word"
  • [ – ] BalrogsAndBagginses reply 'Society grows great when old men plant trees whose shade they know they shall never sit in.'
  • FinnishNationalist reply Missing the whole video because of the baby. :-D I'm sure the content was good, too.... :-P
  • WolfPackJoness reply More than anything else, seeing you with that baby reawakens those family instincts. Please do more videos with baby in it. It's powerful.
  • [ – ] Narcistego reply "We should return Europe into a large edible forest..." ...so that babies can eat leaves all day. :3
  • Cmygo reply Dude your child is brighter than my future D:
  • [ – ] Biwwy reply Do you plan on transferring some videos from your youtube channel here, I'd hate for them to get lost
  • [ – ] Tomolorin reply Hi Varg, I'm a Horticulture and Permaculture student from England. My dream is to do what you're doing but first I'm learning as much of the science and techniques as I can. My best tip I've learned is to plant Alder trees (Alnus glutinosa) around your land. They fix large amounts of Nitrogen into the soil and improve the structure of the soil too; a few Alders will greatly increase the fertility of your whole site for decades! Best of luck.
  • Bergtroll reply There is an Austrian quite famous for his permaculture. Perhaps somebody's interested in learning more. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pxRH7MNdpqA with english subs.
  • Kalak reply "Dad said something about an 'edible forest'. Ok, let's start with these leaves..."
  • staticmesh reply My backyard is full of untamed plants. We have an apple tree, holly tree, massive firs that protect the garden from the sun and it attracts all manners of wildlife, particularly birds. (My neighbour actually started taking photographs of my backyard one day, he said that there was rare birds in my garden). I highly recommend to anyone with a sizable portion of land to start planting some trees and vegetables/fruits. As they say; "The best time to plant a tree was 10 years ago, the second best time is now".
  • [ – ] Azuolas reply Diversity is good. Diversity is a strength. Diversity is what makes the European soil so peaceful.
  • Fenris reply Had to rewatch several parts because of the baby, he's too cute! Thanks for the educational video
  • WindsSower1 reply Once again....I leave everything and watched Vard....This is like drugs.;)
  • Nervii_Belgae reply I love these gardening videos. Marie once told us she was planning to make vids about kitchengardening. She already gave me some tips which i use, that is i seed and plant different vegetables between en next to eachother, not in straight lines, because this distract insects which eats the vegetables. By the way, those kokopelli seeds are very nice quality.
  • Dantosinferne reply I love the occasional cameo of the kids!
  • ChickenClubber reply Eating dry leaves are are good source of fiber.
  • Replikant reply I had to re-watch because of the baby :) This was a great video, I would love to see more about permaculture here.
  • Hybridapes reply He's so cute!
  • [ – ] Adalwulf reply I've been experimenting with putting carnivorous pitcher plants in pots filled with non mineral rich water around the garden to see if that does attract more insects that would instead eat my vegetables. Any thoughts on a techniques like this?
    • [ – ] Restless-Researcher parent reply I've never heard of anyone doing this. Sounds like a cool idea though (not sure if it would be effective, but it would be great to see!).
      • [ – ] Adalwulf parent reply Well I suppose it doesn't quite fall under permanence though, because although I do live near wetlands and swamp areas, simulating a swamp environment for these carnivorous plants will not last. An interest endeavor nonetheless.
        • Restless-Researcher parent reply True, but then again, only a fraction of what falls under the rubric of permaculture is sustainable without human intervention. Many of the permaculture systems are likened to a wheel, that once you get to spin, only require once in a while a hand to flick in order to keep up the momentum.
  • WindsSower1 reply Better leaves than worms....
  • [ – ] HansPozzer reply Don't you get sunburned since there's no forest yet? Around 20 minutes in the sun and I'm quite burned already. Any tips for someone that wishes to follow a simple life like yours but doesn't want to get burned?
  • Valkyrian reply all you can eat leaf buffet :P
  • Ranwulf_Prime_9_worlds reply Oh no, the baby may be a vegan! Haha just kidding! Do you recommend any books on permaculture and farming for someone who has lived in a shitty city most of his life? We are looking to get a plot of land here in Texas to do something similar to what you and your family are doing.
  • crepulus reply Modern industrial food production (a Rothschild obssession) has done a lot of harm to people's digestive systems and contributed to disease like obesity, diabetes, heart disease etc
  • jischinger reply baby tasting the world finds not everything is sweet or worth eating
  • [ – ] Frothing-Fangirl reply I would like to see how you grow vegetables in the permaculture system, not only fruit bushes and strawberries. I have found it sensible to clean up the garden (standard practice) in the fall, i.e., placing most of the dead vegetable wastes into a pile, letting them break down to some degree, then in late spring place this semicompost onto the beds. Allowing large quantities of unusable portions of the crops to just remain in place, as in a forest, provides a home for nonbeneficial insects and slugs. Over millenia, farmers have learned to clean up gardens for a reason. To avoid keeping the soil bare and exposed, I seed something fastgrowing, such as radish and clover. What are your views. I guess what I'm doing isn't permaculture, though. :)
  • TAHrPA reply I've always wondered about the exact idea of perma culture the french version presented by your wife was too difficult to be understood by non-french speaker like me, thank you for the explanation, it's a true inspiration!
  • DavidTeunissen reply Great information Varg.
  • HyperboreanRenaissance reply Very well thought out and informative video. Your explanation of the midden and "primitive style" of growing crops/wildlife is amazing, and folks would do well to look into that for themselves. Personally, I am moving towards forming my own homestead with my wife, and researching effective and ecological/economically prosperous ways of rebuilding the land and our relationships with it has been a passion of mine. Keep up the good work.
  • JoshDalviken reply Eventually his immune system is going to thank him for eating those leaves. Alles gut. ;-)
  • FredJokamotraye reply @OpenBordersForIsrael Top kek
  • AngloSax88 reply Thanks for sharing your knowledge friend. I wish health and happiness to you and your family.
  • NorthernNorseCelt reply Goodbye Youtube!! Varg has shown me the light!!! Eat leaves or Go home!!
  • Aritz reply Ah! Look at that cute little snow-leaf-eating-nigga! Those were oak leaves? Eating the sacred tree of my people! What a compliment!
  • HansPozzer reply How do you know all of this Varg?
  • Thoraxil reply I was distracted by how adorable your son is. What was this video about?
  • youthknives reply I'm sorry this video was really informative but I was crying with laughter the entire time at your baby. Amazing man, just amazing.
  • girlreadingbooks reply What a great learning environment for the child, beautiful!
  • lord_flashheart reply I use aromatic plants to ward off plagues from my plantations. For example. Roses are great guardians agains pests. You can also make insect habitats and make ponds for frogs. The important thing is to get as many animals living in your small ecosystem.
  • Valette reply It's quite something listening to Varg redpill you on agriculture and watching a baby eat leaves.
  • [ – ] oatstao reply Anyone know why i can't view VIDME content on Firefox? I have HTML5 enabled . It's just a black screen.
  • RottingHumanScum reply have you ever heared about the "Ciba Geigy-experiment", in which they put seeds in a magnetic field and when the plants finally grew they became something like the "prehistoric" form of the plant, which was stronger, more resistent and produced more fruits? (it worked with fish too). they dropped the experiments only because they were part of the chemical industry (produced pesticides and so forth) and this stuff would have damaged their business. (but apparently you can do this even at home)
  • Kitchissime reply In French it's called "chaux"; and the act of putting it "chauler".
  • TheHibernianDruid reply Great video, european modern agriculture is very destructive but interestingly the australian aborigines are the original nature destroyers (low iq perhaps is why they couldn't see the unsustainability of their actions. ) Fire-stick farming was the practice of Indigenous Australians who regularly used fire to burn vegetation to facilitate hunting and to change the composition of plant and animal species in an area. Fire-stick farming had the long-term effect of turning dry forest into savanna, increasing the population of nonspecific grass-eating species like the kangaroo. One theory of the extinction of Australian megafauna implicates the ecological disturbance caused by fire-stick farming.
  • ModernOdinist92 reply The notes across the video made it even better. Entertaining, and educational as usual Varg.
  • Connor__Anderton reply Very useful! Thanks! :-)
  • AncientPagan reply You seem so peaceful Varg. On a side note, Youtube did not allow me to comment on this video... Might be a fault on my part. Not sure.
  • McLuhansCoolMedia reply Leave are probably better than the average packet of breakfast cereal :)
  • [ – ] Restless-Researcher reply I've studied permaculture too and this is a fantastic summary! Well done!
    • Restless-Researcher parent reply PS - just one point though. In permaculture there can be main crop beds (zone 3), so maybe long rows of 20m by 5m (so 100m2 in total) with companion planting, cover crops and crop rotation. If that's done properly it's apparently not bad for the ecosystem; it's just on a small scale, without tractors compacting (thus acidifying) the soil, etc.
  • Arnvidr reply Great video!! Thanks
  • Sigurd88 reply I like how the tips on this video is at $14.88
  • Hibernian reply No forests left in Ireland .The British navy was built from them.
  • Thornack reply p.s. haha cute baby
  • Thornack reply thanks for this very very educating video! i am experimenting with permaculture right now, so i can add some new things
  • Rhodiebert reply Dont bother for perma culture. Your descendants can survive of dead leaves.
  • NewMessage reply Well, it's an edible forest.
  • Quex01 reply Nice chemtrails forming in the background...
  • brashatina reply Baby steals the show! ❤
  • NaugthyNationalist reply That baby got a pretty rad vegan diet going
  • Belenos reply hilarious. Eloi made my day ^^
  • amboularozzo reply $14.88 donated LOL
  • WhiteExperience reply That was a pretty good video. I wonder if you could make a video about (useful) domesticated animals. I've seen that you have some chickens and dogs there, but I've also read that you dislike horses because they are weak and that Felis catus familiaris are a pest and not a pest controller (which is true indeed). I would like to hear your thoughts on sheeps, gooses, chickens, horses for traction and riding, cattle and so forth. I don't believe that you are against raising such animals, because as you've said before, we are not able go back to hunter-gathering anymore. If I am wrong about that, please let me know.
  • AzulShiva reply +1 On Permaculture.
  • Ragnor reply Hey Varg, due to a fire, we have lost most of our seeds. Could you give me a link to buy seeds that are not made by some company, so that they will need fertilizers and other chemicals? I think they are called heirloom, seeds, am I right? Because you can keep seeds form your fruit and vegetables for the next year.
  • JenkPac_Shakur reply Massive chemtrails overhead. Goddamn kikes are poisoning the entire planet it would seem.
  • theblissfullone reply I'm sorry Varg ... did you say something? lol ... will have to watch again.
  • Celticus reply Damn it! Is there a Chemtrail above you?, we need some flak guns...
  • andrewcrow reply Permaculture is amazing! Check out this video if you don't believe me: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2xcZS7arcgk (couldn't find it on vidme!) / At that age they just go around asking "what does this taste like?" ;-)
  • Nordwolf reply Sepp Holzer from Austria is a pioneer on this topic and a very smart man. A long time ago we made a school trip to his "Krameterhof" and I remember there was purest nature, very beautiful and very stunning, a real fantasy landscape with different kinds of fruits and vegetables. It was really unbelievable and impressing...Have you ever visited Austria, Varg? - I am sure you would like the area around Salzburg and the near Bavaria and the mountains there, especially in Berchtesgaden! ;-)
  • MrMaker reply awesome video
  • Sigrim reply Varg please do a video on chem-trails :)
  • Sigrim reply Varg do a video on chemtrails please.
  • Restless-Researcher reply I'd really like to see more videos of your perspectives on permaculture, such as the different permaculture zones (zone 0 through to zone 5); also specific examples of companion planting, etc.
  • A_A_O_E reply the baby loves the leaves!, nature baby!, but still worried if the baby is going to be okay
  • ArtairRose reply Varg, I wonder if you could do a video on how you school your kids.
  • WillowSBeech reply I'll start watching your videos here rather than YT. Better video quality, more peaceful...just keep on including the baby!
  • JodaMAX reply >that one guy who tipped 14.88
  • Ruric reply Dear Varg, I would like to see a video about Valhalla/Waelcyrge. Did our ancestors believe in that or is it a part of the "cartoonish" explanation of our european religion? HailaR WodanaR!
  • Dick_Dastardly reply Lol, someone donated 14.88
  • juanherrero1980 reply I have a few potted strawberry, parsil, mint, a few varieties if of peppermint (which in Spanish is called "good herb") and pennyroyal plants at home (no garden, we do own a patch of land outside the city with a house and a well), and once a grasshopper had his hundred strong "litter" there, which ate most of the peppermint's leaves. I just captured and ate them, cooked like if they where prawns. Nicest thing about peppermint is that it is very resilient and will grow anywhere there is sunlight and a little humidity. When some spiky weeds started growing in a crack between the sidewalk and my house, I introduced a stem at their side, and cut the weed's leaves and stems. Soon the peppermint took over, and no matter how much I cut it it always grows back, but no weed does.

  • CitizenGar reply The audio on this video is great for being a few feet from your camera. Are you using a lav microphone or is the the mic from the camera?
  • LeSylphes reply Same thing happened to me,when I was a baby,I ended up in the doctors office with an allergic reaction to the leaves.
  • TalesFromThailand reply It's hilarious how both you and Varg have effectively taken over vid.me in one very simple move. Bravo to you, lads.
  • DEADushka reply Oh God, it's terrible! Varg, your first priority is to look after your children. If such a video in Russia were seen by the employees on the affairs of minors, then you would have real problems. You need to shoot less video and take more care of the children.
  • OpulentMiracle reply Children digging in the soil and eating dirt is no bad thing.
  • Leitkultur reply Turning Europa into a Permaculture (which I agree with) means Millions of Europeans will die (short middle term). Even even you remove the parasites and the non-European elements from our lands. Varg may say it is a return of balance (which I agree with) but it will lead to many deaths.
  • bruhidk123 reply https://vid.me/aabH
  • Cynical-Bastard reply also, great discourse on permaculture...fucking overpopulated planet. oops. kinda ruining things.
  • Cynical-Bastard reply the babe and the leaves...oh jeez...lol.
  • ElhazAlgiz reply Great vid Mr Vikernes, More happy to be here instead of that other place.
  • Ironsnacks234 reply hahahaha the baby eating the leaves made this video so funny. Cute kids Varg. seeing your family makes me want to have my own. (:
  • sn6gfhdb reply Super interesting! Especially for those of us who are interested in growing our own food. Baby was a bit distracting but hilarious and super cute!
  • Isabelle6 reply What is your opinion on the back to eden garden method? Besides the unsavory name it seems to be a quicker way to build quality soil as well as repel pests.
  • Misstiburgund reply I don't know if you heard about it, but trees actually can recognise their offspring make special bonds and share resources within themselves only. Also, the older trees share more with the youngests. http://inhabitat.com/new-documentary-shows-how-trees-form-special-bonds-with-friends-and-family/ Trees also enjoy tribalism!
  • T64Pamela reply He's talking about rotten trees laying around while he baby chomps on the rotten leaves. LMAO!
  • sooqua reply I like how there's an Israeli flag in the 'watching' tooltip next to the view count.
  • Sectual reply This may be the cutest, funniest video on the whole entire internet. Oh my God. This makes me want all teh babiez evar. I wish I could have all the childrens with ThuleanPerspective. I think he's such a chill dad. This lil baby is a superstar.
  • Willian7W reply I had to return the video I don't know how many times, the baby is so cute and interesting even only eating/playing with leaves...
  • DJWhiskkebarr reply You've inspired me to live a more traditional lifestyle. And you're baby was very entertaining to watch
  • VTwhelen reply You have a beautiful baby , you and your wife should be proud. I really appreciate your multI generational view. I wish you and your family the best for many generations to come.
  • VTwhelen reply You have a butifful baby you and miss Varg should be proud reminds me of my sons (currently 4 and 6) . I love your multi generational view/plan.
  • WebNoob reply I don't get it.
  • Kagemi reply I have to disagree concerning weeds, they will be there no matter which system you choose due to the invasive nature of their reproductive strategies. However in a well-functioning permaculture system, hopefully 1)they have more competition from other plants, 2)you can choose to an extent which ones you want to favour, and 3)you can learn to harness their useful properties when present.
  • TheWolfAmongSheep reply EVIL NORDIC BABY!
  • HoldingII reply Your Kid is going to have a diaper full of composted leaves. Very distracting but very amusing though great vid.
  • yurisuika reply People don't realise how complex the integration of nature is.
  • SHOWSTOPP3R reply mega LOLZ! oh man this video was hilarious,,the baby was the star of the show,,i almost couldn't concentrate on what Varg was saying i was so focused on that baby sticking leaves in his mouth..i bet momma gave Varg a big swat for not watching him more closely..
  • oatstao reply Paul Stamets would approve.
  • joshuabrown reply I was on social media today and came across a clothing line that was selling "Burzum" dresses, ive also seen numnerous shirts and hoodies sold elsewhere online. Im assuming you dont recieve royalties from this/they havent asked permission? What do you think of this varg?
  • BraveCounsel reply Very interesting ! Keep em coming!
  • Joel_F reply Very interesting.. I want more info about this
  • Wattarn reply The culling of Youtube is definitely underway
  • Frederik86 reply The middens are the same as hugelkultur? Impressive anyway.
  • DaithiMcBuan reply That baby reminds me of me when I was a baby. Or at least from stories my mother has told me, as well as some early memories.
  • TiagoCastagnera reply What do you think about a small hydroponic greenhouse to produce your own food, e.g. vegetables, fruits, tea plants, during the winter or cold seasons?
  • Archeofuturist reply "Restoration Agriculture" by Mark Shepard is a great book on this subject. Perennial crops should be the emphasis.
  • [ – ] v4nillakid reply Dear Varg, where do you purchase your military surplus clothing?
  • oakman reply A few dried leaves won't do him any harm ;-)
  • PeterKeller reply I never knew what to call this type of lifestyle until I learnt from Varg recently that it's called "permaculture" that helps to explain things more haha :D. It's ironic that you don't learn terms like "permaculture" and "autonomous" in school..
  • Totenkopf2541 reply Varg. Do you believe the theory that Vikings were largely Vegetarians?
  • Hassvogel reply This is what life is about! Planting for severeal Generations and having white Children. ...at least in Europe...
  • eplejuice reply was watching the baby the entire time trying to figure its thought process when consuming dried leaves. very interesting
  • BasedOne reply *It looks like Google fixed the issue with YouTube comments*
  • RottingHumanScum reply have you ever heared about the "Ciba Geigy-experiment", in which they put seeds in a magnetic field and when the plants finally grew they became something like the "prehistoric" form of the plant, which was stronger, more resistent and produced more fruits? (it worked with fish too). they dropped the experiments only because they were part of the chemical industry (produced pesticides and so forth) and this stuff would have damaged their business.
  • [ – ] Eisenreich reply I wish I could persuade more people I know to transform their garden into an allotment and/or forest (preferably both) and do away with any pointless ornamental flowers other than native wildflowers...I've never really understood what you're actually supposed to do in a garden that is purely for decoration anyway...Nothing's more therapeutic and rewarding than nature in its natural state...Also like the look of the weeds you have, I understand nettles thrive on naturally fertilised soil, even in an area severely lacking biodiversity you could probably get most of the nutrients you need from just nettles, roots such as dandelion and some berries nuts and leaves from trees in a worst case scenario...Everyone should eat more nettles!!!
    • Restless-Researcher parent reply Yes, nettles are so underestimated! :-) One thing though, is that although you can get enough vitamins, etc. from many plants you described, to reach enough calories you'd need other things too of course, such as meat, eggs, milk products, honey, potatoes, etc.
  • Jimmysteve reply That kid is entertaining! I had to watch here with the video off-screen so I could hear what you were saying, Varg.
  • Brpyb reply You can buy fungi and plant them on your land. There are some that will grow in the open like Agaricus campestris.
  • Alvgud reply Very interesting video
  • lukkagray reply I have just played Naar Himmelen Klarner At my.accoustic guitar with a new dunlop strings...its just petfect sound...I feel U Varg
  • [ – ] Alexander333 reply Is our galaxy a super massive black hole?
  • [ – ] derostmaerker reply You make cute babies :D Stop makin Babies, Varg.
