It seems that I have described “Y2K Dave’s Survival Garden” from Geoff Lawton and Bill Mollison’s PDC on DVD course many times. Every time I find it very difficult to convey in audio format so I decided to do a video and in spite of my poor artistic skills I think it will make a lot more sense this time around.
Effectively what Y2K Dave ended up with was a bug out location within a bug out location and the construction cost was about 1,000 dollars. It certainly isn’t a 3 bed, 2 bath condo on the water but it would keep you cool in summer, warm in winter and dry in the rain. The garden is well protected from predators, the up grade pond produces water pressure on demand and the swale systems could produce more perennial foods then a small family could need.
If you like this and haven’t seen Geoff Lawton’s new video yet called, How to Survive the Coming Crisis you should really get on over to his website and view it, it is 30 incredible minutes on creating fully sustainable food based systems.
Of course this video is just the latest in my entire Free Permaculture Video Series.
