There is an error in the description.  The author of the book is Bill Zeedyk, not Paul Zeedyk.


I agree with John, I think this is something that needs to happen all over the world.  As a young person with almost no capital, I've been wrestling with the very vexing problem of how to get into permaculture and ecosystem restoration.  These camps can make this kind of education available to those who need it most.  Seems like this is the sort of thing that has the most potential to get us to the tipping point of regenerative action.  So help us get the word out!  Young people interested in earth healing need to know that this is going to be an option.

Here is a webinar from Sustainable Design Master Class that aired just two days ago, wherein John further elaborates his vision:

Just watched this video about a ~280 sq. ft. earth-bermed house in WA.  This off-grid abode is quite beautiful (inspired by hobbits) but there seems to be no mention of permaculture, Mike Oehler, thermal inertia, etc.  How could this design have been improved?

We are looking to build a fence in the backyard to keep the chickens out of the human space. We'd also like to plant some vining herbiage to beautify this barrier. Can a fence be constructed that serves also as trellis for roses/grapes/etc? Or will the birds' appetite for green leafy matter be too much discouragement for young plants? Should t-posts and chicken wire be avoided? And if so which materials offer a preferable alternative?

We're in the process of building a bunch of hugels in our zones 1/2. Check it out!

Usually when someone harvests a tree for lumber/firewood, the slash (branches and stuff) is just left there on the forest floor. In large forestry operations it's often piled up and burned off. We'd rather put it to good use in our garden.

The dogs on the lab sure do bring a special joy to those of us who get to interact with them.

Work continues...

I took this picture from inside the excavator seat. I am sculpting the thermal dirt with an I-beam. In the second photo the crew is working on laying down the billboard material in 5 layers.

Jesse is currently occupying 0.7. The new couple, Mike and Violet, are moving in next week. They will be building/hanging partitions in the two wings for private space with kitchen/living room in the middle 200 sq. ft. Might be possible to squeeze a fourth in there, probably as Jesse's roommate.

The pooper's been fancied up quite a bit over the last month or two. We even stuck a recycled tank behind the lids and planted them with origami flowers to make it look more homey.

Our lovely young volunteer Bella was quite the talented wood burner. Not as in combustion for heat, but inscribing flat sections with a magnifying glass. She burnt a handful of beautiful signs for us during her stay.
