I came here the day after Christmas 2011. I knew about Geoff Lawton and Zaytuna Farm from my time in Hawaii on an organic, educational farm there where I had seen the DVDs on permaculture that Geoff had made. I wanted to see what permaculture was all about. I had had an introduction to it there and so I ventured out. In my TEDx talk I mention going on a journey and it led me here to this permaculture farm and it is a wonderful experience. This has mostly been due to the people I have met here, the students/interns and the food is incredible. I tell everybody I am here for the food and chef Ish and chef Tee do a fantastic job.
Everybody from Tim the farm manager, Byron the farm work director and Tracey in the office have been outstanding people and have made my stay here so enjoyable that I have stayed for 2 months. I have learned so much about gardening and farming.
Geoff’s wife Nadia has been fantastic. I have learned so much from her in two months about gardening and other skills from seed to table.
Geoff and Nadia have definitely created and implemented a beautiful earth ethic and my heart goes out to them. I can’t thank them enough for a wonderful, wonderful experience and I hope to come back next January to do the Internship. This has been a satisfying and enriching WWOOFing experience.
So hope you enjoy my TEDx talk and you get more involved in permaculture and create and develop your own earth ethic.
