Welcome to The DIY World

The Do It Yourself World is a collection of DIY projects in alternate energy, natural foods and off grid living. We have projects ranging from radiant energy, to DIY lighting and solar panels, to foraging for wild edibles. Our experiments and projects are leading to a fully off grid lifestyle. We are working with DIY hyrdogen boosters for autos, solar panels and homemade windmills. These pages are constantly expanding with new projects and discoveries, so check back often.
