The Unification Epicenter of True Lightworkers
Geoff Lawton takes you for a walk down a steep mountain slope in Hong Kong that was once a barren treeless desert. Now 50 years later, it's a wonderful paradise with all its own water, ponds, terraced gardens, compost and bio-char creation systems in place.
Geoff takes you all the way down to beautiful permaculture garden and nursery. He explains how they use these amazing aero-pots in the nursery to grows plants super fast. Check it out!
You live on flat land and the river rises suddenly and your property is inundated with flood water. Your precious trees, gardens, poultry, livestock all ruined in the deluge. Swales are no good. You can't dig a trench in sandy soil completely full of ground water.
What would you do?
Here's a terrific story how one man dealt with this problem and saved his land using a clever little known Permaculture technique.
Geoff Lawton visits Dan Halsey in Minnesota who in 2006 made the switch as a successful photographer to become a professional Permaculture Designer. Dan gives you a tour of his farm and then shares with you his techniques of designing large scale properties. Even if you don't know one tree from another, Dan shares with you his method on how to design in any environment.
Geoff Lawton visits an enormous community glasshouse located in the cold mountains of Canada to find out how they managed to heat their system over winter without costly power bills.
Its an amazing system where the summer heat is pumped and stored below ground and slow released over winter. It really works. Its very inexpensive to build too. If you live in a cold climate and plan to heat your house - you must watch this video.
When Warren Brush bought a run down orchard near Ventura, California, he knew he was in for the ride of his life transforming it into a Permaculture farm. From an an original monoculture persimmon, apple and avocado orchard, its a risky challenge to turn this all around and announce you are now also running a creamery and a heritage pig system and a farm stall and then there are the walnuts and the orchards and...well, you get the idea.
Find out how Warren managed to do all this with inventive fresh ideas and a little Permaculture knowledge.

Transforming a hostile Nevada property into a productive environment is not easy, especially when your farm is situated in the high, cold, dry and windy part of America. How did one family manage to combine their love of horses and permaculture together and transform it successfully into a wonderful environment in three short years? Geoff Lawton investigates.
Fancy a custom built $500 cob house? Geoff Lawton investigates an innovative collection of houses being built on a Permaculture farm in California. Each house costs around $500 to construct. All the little houses are built individually out of cob (sand, clay, water and straw) and are lovingly decorated in unique custom designs from found materials. They last a long time too.

34 Years ago, Dano and his wife Robin switched off their TV and moved into a tiny 1 acre property in the forest of Molokai and decided to concentrate their lives on just doing Permaculture and nothing else.
In this video, Geoff Lawton tracks them down and finds out how they managed to survive all these years and what secrets they learned along the way.
Imagine you owned your own farm planted full of apple trees.
You used No herbicides. No fungicides. No pesticides and No industrial fertilizers.
The trees were treated with Sheer Total Utter Neglect and still bore copious amounts of fruit.
How is that possible?
In this video, Geoff Lawton visits Mark Shepard's Permaculture farm in Wisconsin to discover his secrets of profitably growing apples using his STUN system. It's the best 15 minutes you will ever enjoy.
We shared this video on Facebook and YouTube last week, which was seen by well over 100,000 people. Whilst filming in the prairies of Minnesota recently, Geoff Lawton was struck by the contrasting field of industrial corn. In 3 minutes he gave you an interesting account of the contrast and despair of industrial agriculture. Its Geoff Lawton at his unplugged best.

Geoff Lawton visits the Hawaiian Island of Molokai where an 800 year old fish farming system is being restored. These amazing Hawaiian aquaculture systems allow nutrient flow from a series of Taro ponds in the upper slopes to gather nutrient and algae to flow downhill to smaller ponds before going out to sea. Fish are attracted to the nutrient rich fresh water and with the aid of an extended rock wall, are trapped and harvested at the gates at night. An amazing sustainable system.
It's 40 degrees below freezing. We're in Calgary, Canada and this rocket stove powered green house is pumping out tomatoes and cucumbers when its still freezing outside! The neigbours are amazed to see red tomatoes coming out at the beginning of the season, when most tomatoes never mature or even turn red at all!
Geoff Lawton finds out how this engineering couple are growing their own food in a tiny backyard!
Geoff Lawton discovers an oasis in the middle of the Sonoran desert in Arizona.
The system was created 80 years ago. Built during the Roosevelt era, with horse and cart during the Great Depression it remained lost and forgotten for 80 Years! Now thanks to Google Earth imagining, Geoff Lawton tracked it down and discovered a forgotten swale system that was designed to passively harvest water and build soil - without human assistance.
We could re-green a lot of deserts this way and plant an oasis of productive fruit trees. Find out how they did it!

Geoff Lawton visits Permaculture Designer, Tom Kendall's farm where his three cows supply enough cooking gas to suit a family of six people.
Tom's dairy is designed to capture all the manure (including human manure) and direct it to an underground chamber where methane gas is fermented. Excess manure is then directed to his vegetable garden or through his a reed bed filtration system.
