I've read both of Sepp's English-translated books and watched every YouTube video.

FACT: There's only so much a book can cover. I learn by observing and seeing the actual plants, animals, and systems.

So...I'm planning a European Permaculture Tour. I'll be backpacking around Sepp's place and Austria + all sorts of other cool destinations.

Any other Permies interested in taking part? Likely do this in July to view the Krameterhof in all it's seasonal glory.

Get in touch, respond on this thread!

I'm shocked that no one has yet responded to this. I am super interested in visiting Sepp's farm. In fact my husband is working with the Brazilian government trying to get Sepp to help build a few eco cities but never got a response back from Paul Wheaton or Sepp Holzer. The council instead got Joel Salatin to help and present to the board as the designers plan initial phases. Quite the disappointment but I know Sepp is working on lots of important projects and can't be everywhere at the same time and I'm sure he gets lots of emails. How did you get a hold of him and schedule a tour?!? Next time we're in Austria we'll have to bring an interpreter and knock on his door.

What does your permaculture schedule look like? What other permaculture farms will you be seeing? My family is looking into buying a camper and touring American and European permaculture farms and re-learning all the lost arts of cooking and living. Keep us updated on your travels!!!
