Creating Gaia’s Garden – Toby Hemingway’s Last Lectures 

Before Toby Hemingway passed away in 2016, he recorded one final lecture series titled “Creating Gaia’s Garden,” as part of an intended certificate program out of the Permaculture Institute USA, originally founded by Bill Mollison. These lectures went unpublished and unseen, and their location has been unknown for many years…. Until now. Rob has been sitting on these videos for some time now after getting access to them in a trade, and has finally decided to open up their access for YOU to enjoy and benefit from.

These three courses give you the theory and tools you need to give your property new levels of food security, water security, and resilience against the changing conditions of the coming years.

 

This is our best value package when you take advantage of the early bird price.

For a limited time get more than $2,000 in value for just $999!
