Does anyone know of farms with a similar ambition of Geoff Lawton's Zaytuna Farm?  RSS feed

Zaytuna farm looks amazing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ASNVqSEEk1U

I want to know of similar efforts in other places of the world. Mr. Lawton's work should be replicated across the globe!

I think there are quite a lot out there, just by the look of the Google search results for permaculture farms.
One of the best big ones I know of is Ben Falk's permaculture site:

He has a wonderful talk online:

This image (below) is from the Hale Akua Garden Farm in Maui, Hawaii:

The Lazy Gardener, John Douglas, runs a permaculture farm in Panama:

The Quail Springs Permaculture site also seems pretty big:

The Ojai Permaculture site seems pretty big, too:


Just as important, I think we should take note of all the amazing small permaculture sites out there:
For example, Dr.Bob Randall made an amazing urban food forest; it is just so beautiful and productive.

Then there another amazing permaculture garden:


I do not think it is size that matters so much, but the fact that people are making a positive impact in the world. Let's go do stuff! (I love that song)

I forgot to mention two other things:

1) Welcome to permies Jake!

2) If you need help finding permaculture sites near where you live, Permaculture Global is a database/map of many permaculture projects and people around the world.

Hey Jake,

Great examples that Dave gave you!

I would add also Sepp Hozler farm in Austria, well he is a famous ambitious permaculture person, with some genious and crazy ideas. I visited his place and I really find it amazing (no overstatement!).

I also visited and enjoyed the highly biodiversity spots of Martin crowford forest garden in Devon, UK, and Plants for a Future project in Cornwall, UK.

Then, I also like the small urban gardens of Path to the Freedom, even though they are labelled as "permaculture", and the one from Eric Toensmeier, which is a leading expert in perennial vegetables, so he created with a friend a fantastic small urban permaculture house garden.
 
I found a beautiful pie. And a tiny ad:
