The Eco-Transformation of Our Home – Video E-Course
Nestled in southeast Calgary is one of the city’s original thriving permaculture projects – our home!
And now we are offering an exclusive opportunity to learn all about it…online in our new Video E-Course!
As engineers and long-time permaculture designers and teachers, we’ve travelled the world to learn about sustainable and regenerative human habitat and have implemented many of these concepts on our property. We’ve been transforming our inner-city home into a permaculture demonstration site since 2009.
We’ve received rave reviews from our popular and often sold-out yard tours, but have not shared much about this project with our online community… until now!
Watch this 1 hour Video E-Course & Learn about:
- Water: principles of slowing and storing water, swales, rainwater collection, irrigation, drought-proofing, self-watering garden beds, and greywater;
- Energy: Our outdoor earth oven, urban lumber, our passive solar greenhouse & rocketmass heater, heat-recovery unit, and re-insulation
- Soil: improving soil quality, importance of mulch and growing nutrient-dense food;
- Food: food-print statistics, importance of local food, perennial & low-maintenance food forestry strategies, increasing urban bio-diversity and habitat, super-productive veggie gardens;
- Waste: Using urban waste streams, nutrient-cycling, composting, composting toilets;
- Community: How our community (local and beyond) is being improved from our actions.
