Beau did a mycoinsulation project at this years PTJ.  They worked on mycelium insulation for the new well pumphouse.  Now they are making a movie about the 2023 PTJ and this project is one that will be in the movie.

Paul just released a new YT video with a clip of the mycelium insulation project.  Watch it here: https://youtu.be/en7NRhyA6WE?si=CCYqL8bWs5QKM6Mz

Most everyone knows that Beau did a mycelium insulation project at this year's Permaculture Technology Jamboree.  But did you know that they are trying to make a movie about the PTJ?  And that this project will be one of the ones in the movie?

Paul just released a clip of the Low Tech Laboratory Movie 2 Kickstarter.  This clip shows a bit of the project at the 2023 PTJ where they worked on mycelium insulation for the well pump house.

During the Permaculture Technology Jamboree 2023 at Wheaton Labs, instructor Beau Davidson delved deep into the marvels of natural building. As part of the Low Tech Laboratory 2 Kickstarter project, Beau embarks on the construction of a well pumphouse, uniquely insulated with mycelium. Demonstrating its effectiveness in Montana's frigid climate, he emphasizes the sustainability and innovation behind this remarkable material. If you've ever wondered about the possibilities of integrating nature into modern construction, Beau's exploration of mycelium insulation offers a groundbreaking perspective. Dive in to uncover the future of eco-friendly building solutions!

Get ready to embark on another cinematic journey with "The Sequel" of the Low Tech Laboratory movie, where nature meets innovation! Building on the success of our inaugural Kickstarter, we're thrilled to present fresh projects from the Permaculture Technology Jamboree 2023 at Wheaton Labs. This edition emphasizes the interplay of natural building and sustainability, exemplified by our renowned instructor, Beau Davidson. Beau unveils the art and science behind using mycelium insulation for a well pumphouse, illustrating its potential in the face of Montana's challenging climate. From the regenerative qualities of mycelium, reflecting Beau's deep-seated commitment to green building, to other low-tech marvels harnessing the elements of earth, wood, and water, our sequel is a treasure trove of eco-conscious innovation. Whether you're newly discovering permaculture or are a seasoned enthusiast, this film promises a blend of education and inspiration. As our Kickstarter campaign approaches, we warmly invite you to be part of our mission. Remember, some sequels set the bar even higher — think The Godfather Part II! With special benefits for our early backers, your support means the world to us. Are you geared up to champion another eco-centric blockbuster?
