Burra - It'd be wrong to lay claim on  Charles's work. I am a fan of his technique.
I shared his work not as my project. Charles is duly credited. Those were his words.

Thanks for voicing your concern.

Ryan Harb shares his experience creating the first Public University Permaculture Garden in the nation and explains how we can use permaculture to empower ourselves and make a difference in our community and the world.

Ryan Harb is a certified permaculture designer, community organizer and was the first person in the nation to receive a Master of Science degree in Green Building. In 2010, Harb created a job for himself as Sustainability Manager for UMass Amherst Dining Services. He then began developing one of the first university permaculture gardens
in the nation that supplies locally grown produce and hands-on sustainability education to the campus and local community. Within 18 months, “The UMass Permaculture Initiative” went viral and was featured in over 100 media publications including the New York Times, Boston Globe, Huffington Post, and on MTV. The project has engaged over 3,500 volunteers and won 8 national awards. In 2012, Harb was invited to the White House to meet and speak alongside President Barack Obama. He was named a “White House Campus Champion of Change”, and UMass Permaculture was voted the top university program in the country that’s changing the world for the better.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at

"NO DIG ABUNDANCE, a weedy field becomes garden in 9 months, using mulches only

Turning an uncultivated plot with many perennial weeds, into an abundant garden using the no-dig approach. all within a few months in 2013. I describe the process in detail in "How to Create a New Vegetable Garden", pub. Green Books 2014.
To see how the garden evolved over the next few years. we made another video in July 2016 Notice how there is no cardboard or polythene! All perennial weeds have died, including the bindweed.
And this video is Homeacres no dig garden in August 2017
Regular updates are on my website, with fortnightly advice about sowing, planting, weeding, picking and mulching
On my website there is a shop for books and courses" ---Charles Dowding

A Tiny/Small House Tour - Living Large in a Small Space

My Tiny/Small house tour. Living large in a small space.

   I purchased 2 lofted barn cabin shells a few years ago. My dad and I finished off the insides of both cabins in a little over a few months time.  

The main cabin is 14' x 40' and a smaller guest cabin is 10' x 16'.  The main cabin sits on a slab and features a large master bedroom, full size bath, cozy kitchen with full sized appliances and a guest loft above the kitchen. There is also a large storage area above the bath and utility room. The cabins were framed with 2 x 4's so we added 2 x 2's on all for the exterior walls and ceiling rafters to fur them out to get R-19 insulation in. The only difference other than size between the 2 cabins is that the small guest cabin does not have running water or a bathroom.

I have been a big follower of the Tiny/Small house movement and enjoyed watching and reading about other person's personal stories. Now it is time to share my story. I can say without a doubt that living small is the way to go. It may not be for everyone, but it's definitely for me.

If you have any questions please put them in the comment section below and I'll be happy to answer them.
