For water one should - when you have the possibility - create retention areas, you should collect the rainwater 2'55 '' , so one has to learn to handle water again 2'58 ''. Governments in many parts of the world are no longer able to feed the population and wildlife has not enough food for a long time already 4'7 ''. The industrialists destroy the earth's crust with pesticide-machine monocultures - the rain washes away the humus Commentator: Holzer sees industry bosses around the world involved destroying the planet with forest destruction, monocultures, overgrazing and industrial agriculture. The result: the whole fauna and flora gets impoverished starting to wither and at the end the landscape is converting into a desert, or is also burning when it gets too dry 4'47 ''. These are the problems that can be found today, and which leads to huge disasters 4'54 ''.
Several of us got together and recorded podcasts rich with information on what we heard and experienced. After watching his videos about 18 times each, and then reshaping about 15 acres of land to be "Sepp Holzer Style" terraces, ponds, plus lots of trees , it was bizarre to meet him and shake his hand! And his hands are freaky huge! My hands are freaky huge, but I'm a giant. His hands are bigger than mine. So, just as the first evening is getting started, we ham it up for the camera a little: Me and Sepp Holzer in Tacoma, Washington So I had my little digital camera with me.
It has a video mode. I tried to record some stuff. The battery doesn't last very long when doing the video thing, but I think I lucked out and recorded the best parts. Afterwards, I got Sepp's permission to share this.
This first video goes into Sepp Holzer's earliest horticultural experiences as a boy genius! He covers the use of rocks on steep slopes and thorns to protect from deer. He also initiates and income model at the age of six! This next video is about Sepp Holzer's first pond and aquaculture business. This is the one with the crocodiles! Other folks use pond liners and the like.
Sepp Holzer can get damn near any soil to seal for a pond. I've built a few ponds and I've read a lot of books on sealing ponds, and I've had a lot of conversations with a lot of other pond builders. And Sepp Holzer is way, way, way out ahead of everybody else. And he makes it sound so simple. Sepp Holzer grows citrus where it gets to 20 or 30 below zero!
And he hints to some of his secrets here After his presentation, he opened the floor to questions. And there are two important bits that I remember. Sepp Holzer on how to get rid of invasive blackberries About two weeks earlier, there was a showing of Sepp Holzer videos in Woodinville.
Five permies were asked to sit at the front as a sort of panel.
I was one of those five. Somebody asked us what to do to get rid of invasive blackberries. And we had five different answers. One answer was throw your apple cores and the like into the blackberry patches. Eventually the trees will outcompete the blackberries. I like that one! Another was to pick the blackberries and make pies. Then arrange with arborists to bring loads of alder wood chips in exchange for pies. Cut the canes and then cover with 18 inches of wood chips. Labor intensive, but quick results!
My answer was "put a string of electric around the blackberries and then run pigs in there. Somebody asked Sepp how to get rid of invasive blackberries. Sepp's answer: "put a string of electric around the blackberries and then run pigs in there. And then somebody asked what if you don't have pigs? Sepp said "then you have to do the pigs work! More on clearing blackberries. Sepp Holzer on running pigs in a riparian area This was my question. I feel Sepp is quite the expert in riparian areas.
After all, a lot of the work he does is in creating riparian areas. And a lot of farmers are now blocking their animals from riparian areas.
Often due to government pressure. I run my animals in riparian areas - it is some of the best land! I think the problems with animals in riparian areas are fully compensated for with several things, but mostly a paddock shift system. I asked Sepp's response was something on the order of utter confusion. Why would you NOT run pigs in riparian areas? He then went on to make it clear that he runs his pigs in all of his riparian areas.
In the class Sepp Holzer talked about quite a few things, but one of the most important things I remember is that Sepp wanted to make it clear that what he advocates is "Holzer Permaculture" which is different from "Permaculture. Sepp Holzer on keeping animals off of trees On the first full day we toured a farm where the animals had wiped out nearly all growth.
The land owner's intent was to get a fresh start. So, first run too many animals in there to eliminate all of the weeds and Then come in and plant the stuff you want to keep. Sepp was very direct and did not mince words: He did not approve. Sepp pointed out how only the trees were left, but since animals had nibbled at the bark so much, he called these trees "standing dead.
I first wrote this section from memory and it turns out I made lots of mistakes. Fortunately, somebody else that was there helped me to remember details and she has the book that mentions this which is all in german, but she speaks german! First you start with a cast iron kettle and bury it a bit and put a cup of water in the bottom.
Then fill another kettle with bones, put a screen over it and then plop the bone kettle upside down on the other kettle. Then pack clay around the edges to make a good seal.
Then Pile up some dirt and build a big fire over the whole thing. Here is my lame attempt at drawing Sepp Holzer's bone sauce contraption. Keep the fire going for an hour or two and then let it sit for a day. Then collect the nasty gunk from the bottom.
Apparently this smells awful. Smear a little of this around the trunk of any tree and animals won't ever touch that tree. I spent weeks trying to get two matching pots from site. In the end, I spent two hours tracking down pots that would work without breaking the bank. For the pots in the video I bought two of these.
More about Sepp Holzer's recipe for bone juice. Sepp Holzer on sealing ponds and "the monk" Sepp does not like to draw pictures. In twelve days of training, Sepp never did a powerpoint, although he did have somebody else show some of his pictures from previous projects.
The way he conveys nearly all information is through telling stories and interpretive dance. By "interpretive dance" I mean that he speaks a lot through his hands. Maybe that was just because most of us in the audience didn't speak german - but I see him doing it in the german video too. Through interpretive dance. He places his right elbow in his left hand and makes his right forearm perfectly vertical.
After a second, he moves his right fist left and right a few inches. I've seen him do this about 40 times now. All ponds have a high flow over flow that is used sporatically, but the monk is there for 24 hours a day, days a year. It is a pipe that goes through the dam at a low point. Inside the pond there is an elbow that will connect this pipe with a pipe that goes to the surface.
The top of the second pipe will then determine the water level of the pond. These two pipes and the elbow are "The Monk". The key is, that the elbow is a tight fit, but can still slide a little. So if you move the monk side to side, you can adjust the depth of the pond. When we were at Mowich farm, Sepp was quick to point at a culvert and holler "catastrophe!
He then tells a story about how there will be a great rain storm at 2am and the culvert plugs, the water rises, runs over the dam and the dam is destroyed.
As part of the story he holds his hands together and places them next to his head to show the pond owner asleep at 2am. He then talked about how they use the monk in some interesting ways to "vacuum" up algae, elodea and even silt. They would go so far as to attach poly pipe to the end of the monk and then buzz around the pond sucking up all sorts of things. Fans of Sepp Holzer have come from all over the world to see the productivity of his farm, a veritable permaculture paradise. Many readers might have wondered-but how can we achieve this on a global scale?
Holzer describes the ecological and economic benefits of these changes, as well as the use of a variety of plant and animal species for further integration and regeneration of the surrounding areas, including reasons for reforestation and the cause and use of forest fires. Holzer also outlines his ten points of sustainable self-reliance and how these methods can help feed the world, such as the need to regulate the water budget, eliminate factory livestock farming, bring more fallow or unused areas into production, enlarge crop areas by using terracing and Holzer-style raised beds, regionalize instead of globalize, fight for land reform and engage in community building, go back to the ancient farming wisdom, and change the educational system.
Share This: Reviews and Praise ForeWord Reviews- "Many climatologists are concerned that the recent spate of drought across several parts of the world is likely to become the new normal, which would prove particularly challenging for farmers, but will also affect everyone from city planners to rural landowners.
In his new book, Holzer offers examples from countries like Russia and Portugal to demonstrate the breadth of landscapes that can be healed with a greater emphasis on natural water management.
He covers an immense range of topics, including using pigs to restore forest-fire areas, constructing ponds with proper shallow zones, restoring hydrological balance in the world, and abolishing industrial livestock farming.
He encourages farmers to become rebels, gardeners to become advocates, and everyone to become more self-reliant and community-minded. By blending big-picture thinking and achievable local-level results Holzer elevates his book far above a how-to or polemic.
He seems the voice of reason in a world where a disconnect from nature is imperiling land, water, and people.
