Food forest, Flora, & Permaculture Design: Preamble to Toby Hemenway's Lesson 3 - Plants

Plants can serve multiple functions, and different species of plants can work together by design to grow an abundance of nutrient dense food in your garden or for your farm. In this video, Takota and Rob discuss the processes and principles supporting the techniques, ideas, and detailed information from Toby Hemmenway in his lesson 3 video. This prelude video will compliment Toby’s information and strengthen your understanding when you watch Toby’s video. Permaculture is about much more than gardening, but if you want an abundant garden you’ll want to watch this entire series! Toby Hemmenway was one of the best permaculture teachers on the planet as he clearly communicated complex ideas in ways that anyone could understand. He made permaculture fun, exciting and backed up the ideas of permaculture with science.   Toby’s “Creating Gaia’s Garden” introduction to permaculture course has 5 parts, and each will be released in turn over the next few weeks. Before each part of Toby’s course, Takota and Rob will post a prelude video discussing topics in the next “Creating Gaia’s Garden” video.

Permaculture Soil Basics - Toby Hemenway's Creating Gaia's Garden Lesson #2

Toby Hemenway discusses permaculture soil basics, several ways of building organic matter, and how to get minerals in the soil so you produce nutrient dense food. Toby gives you an opportunity to apply permaculture design to your own property with “homework” activities, to get you thinking about what you could do with your yard, garden, acreage, or farm. This is the SECOND lesson in a 5 part video series and is the last class that Toby Hemenway taught before he passed. Toby taught all over the world and left two incredible books behind which clearly delineate the concept of permaculture.  Support the channel and production of this video and buy your copy of Toby's book with this affiliate link: http://shrsl.com/1gfp2 Buy the book without the affiliate link here. https://www.chelseagreen.com/produc...

Permaculture & the City Pt 2: How Permaculture Design Can Save The Day In Our Cities!

Permaculture design can provide solutions to serious challenges facing our cities' urban ecosystems, solutions that create healthy, sustainable ecosystems for all living things. In Part 2, Rob shares ideas and perspectives on how the tools and principles of permaculture design can be applied to the environmental crises of pollution, energy, and food that are facing humankind in urban ecosystems. Climate change is not the only crisis looming on the horizon for urban residents., and urban municipalities need to act now if they are to be sustainable and their residents are to be prepared. After watching this video you will understand the exact kinds of urgent action that cities and towns need to take to prepare for the coming crises. You will also learn about sustainable development and ways of increasing the sustainability of our large urban centres where millions of people rely on food from far away that uses far more energy to bring to our tables than it provides.
