Environmental Problems Worldwide Can Be Solved In Garden Says Permaculture Expert

Permaculture designer and trainer Geoff Lawton says the environmental problems of the world can be solved in a garden and has released a series of videos demonstrating real permaculture projects across the world to prove it.

Geoff Lawton achieved international prominence with his YouTube video “Greening the Desert” where he demonstrated how he grew food in highly salted, arid, overgrazed land near the dead sea without using irrigation or external inputs.


Lawton has taught permaculture design in 30 different countries across the world. His videos demonstrate how permaculture design can grow food in cramped spaces in the city and in the suburbs. Other videos show how a desolate, treeless mountain in Kadoorie Farm, Hong Kong was converted to a highly productive food growing area with an abundance of trees.


Other videos include an energy saving greenhouse using the heating power of chickens, a large tract of land in the Arabian desert converted from a desert to an oasis in just 4 years and a house built with mainly local materials for just $500.


A huge array of environmentally friendly and integrated solutions are explained in the videos including a biogas system in the Sunshine Coast in Australia run with the manure of 3 cows and creating shade and food from previously wasted urban street run off water in Southern Arizona so effectively that the method has gone from being a breach of council regulations to being a requirement from the local council.


In one of his most eye opening videos Geoff Lawton demonstrates how food forests can be created and integrated in suburban or rural areas across three different climate zones.


These highly sophisticated food forests can be grown with very few inputs even on highly degraded land starting with nitrogen fixing pioneer trees and ground covers then using the mulch from those to grow productive trees and other crops until the system reaches a climax of highly productive fruit and nut trees with a ground cover of multiple different vegetables.
