Coconut Garden Permaculture In Action

Coconut Garden Permaculture In Action


Many times you will see videos of very serious and earnest people trying to convey the importance of communities joining in lifestyle with the land and the environment.

Perhaps there is another way to visualize the joining. Maybe if we could see the actual relationship we would get a move on and make this a functional reality.

Don’t get me wrong, the work of the scientists and activists are important but sometimes a lizard or a duck can show you the path to enlightenment. A little reggae doesn’t hurt either.

The video was recorded at the Lung Mee Permaculture Garden in the Surat Thani province in Southern Thailand.

I live in a urban environment so my definition and application of permaculture is going to be quite different than the visualization in the video. Still, we’ve got to start learning about what we need to do to move forward in a healing, sustainable manner.

Absolutely wonderful video, showing how the use of just coconuts can sustain so many, and nothing goes to waste. We need to have more good ideas like this example around the world!

Loved the singer and the music..really put me in a good evening mood in the heat! Thank You.
