While I was in Austria sepp holzer gave me 2 cd's with plans that he has created for past projects, including the Holzerhof. He told me to put his logo on the pages, and to tell everyone that they can be used, but only with his logo clearly represented.

Here are all the plans that he gave me.

Um, wow. I'm not sure what else to say. But what a fantastic resource, and how wonderful that Sepp wants to share it with us all.

Thankyou so much Daniel!

I've posted up a couple of sample images so people can see the sort of thing that's available.

These images are thumbnails - if you click on them you should get much more detailed image which allows you to read all the facts and figures.

this looks amazing, Iv been wondering what else sepp has been up to by trying to search through youtube or other websites.
I think sepp has been doing these landscape projects for so long that fixing unproductive landscapes is as easy as breathing for him, there should be a team documenting everything he has done and share it with a larger audience through independent lens or Nat Geo.

I keep staring at the brick sphere found in some of the projects. For some reason that seems so surreal and fascinating to me. So much in these files is interesting.

it really is surreal. I believe that brick sphere is the stomach of a dragon (methane bio-digestor)

The brick sphere is an earth-cellar, similar to the stone dome at the Krameterhof (that is pictured in several of Sepp's books) except made of brick. Beautiful masonry, the stone one at the Krameterhof is actually a dry laid stone dome, which requires an expert mason. They did pour concrete over it but basically just so that they could take people into it during their tours while still being insuranced.

Wow. That is even more cool than what I had thought. That is impressive masonry.

Hey guys. Daxx here. I'm headed to Europe in a few weeks and would like to meet Seep. Do you have his contact information?

Pretty cool. I had no idea. I thought he just tinkered with his own place.

sepp holzer's website is www.seppholzer.at it is all in german. Sepp only speaks German. I have his business card. It says you can reach him at office@seppholzer.at

I got his business card while I was with the Holzer Agro-Ecology group and I also got many great ideas. When I showed Sepp my family's land he strongly encouraged me to get started working there as soon as possible. He even told me that he would like to visit my land when he visits America again. This is what has got me working so hard to get a business plan together and to determine how I can make a profit in order to fund my permaculture projects. One way in which I am attempting this is by starting an indiegogo campaign which I have here. I have decided to start with distilling essential oils, and selling plant medicines. Lately I have also determined that direct marketing strawberries, leeks, celery, eggplant, carrots, and garlic can be quite profitable.
