While I was in Austria Sepp Holzer gave me 2 cd's with plans that he has created for past projects, including the Holzerhof. He told me to put his logo on the pages, and to tell everyone that they can be used, but only with his logo clearly represented.
this looks amazing, Iv been wondering what else sepp has been up to by trying to search through youtube or other websites.
I think sepp has been doing these landscape projects for so long that fixing unproductive landscapes is as easy as breathing for him, there should be a team documenting everything he has done and share it with a larger audience through independent lens or Nat Geo.
The brick sphere is an earth-cellar, similar to the stone dome at the Krameterhof (that is pictured in several of Sepp's books) except made of brick. Beautiful masonry, the stone one at the Krameterhof is actually a dry laid stone dome, which requires an expert mason. They did pour concrete over it but basically just so that they could take people into it during their tours while still being insuranced.
I got his business card while I was with the Holzer Agro-Ecology group and I also got many great ideas. When I showed Sepp my family's land he strongly encouraged me to get started working there as soon as possible. He even told me that he would like to visit my land when he visits America again. This is what has got me working so hard to get a business plan together and to determine how I can make a profit in order to fund my permaculture projects. One way in which I am attempting this is by starting an indiegogo campaign which I have here. I have decided to start with distilling essential oils, and selling plant medicines. Lately I have also determined that direct marketing strawberries, leeks, celery, eggplant, carrots, and garlic can be quite profitable.
I downloaded a few of the pictures from the link in the first post.
I don't read German, but it looks like the first picture shows a diagram of the equipment creating ponds and raised growing areas and terraces, and the second picture looks like it is a picture of the actual area after completion.
The other photos seem to show an artist's rendition of multiple of Sepp's projects around the world. It is really neat to me, how it looks like it is divided into lots with houses, and almost every lot is "waterfront", having some type of water access.
Striving to grow things as naturally, simply, and cheaply as possible!
