We haven't been able to find food grade geotextile — we recently bought geotextile to support the new road we built and the company that supplied us didn't know of any food grade geotextile. In fact, with some of the extra geotextile we had leftover from the road building I created an indoor vertical garden, which began emitting a soapy substance when wet. I wouldn't case a spring with it.
Round washed gravel and food grade geotextile is best for this although not necessary in every case.
I'm leaning toward going ahead and trying without the geotextile in our particular situation. Will take some pictures and let you know how it goes.

It seems like dynamite could be an alternative or addition to the machines for some.

there is nothing new and nothing invented by sepp holzer published by this topic!
log hives are used since hundreds of years in beekeeping and they were the first step in developing the "modern bee hives".
when you are using pictures, please publish them under the correct references.
the pictures showing the vertical log hive, its' building and the observation hive are not sepp holzers origin.
the pictures are showing my beehives in my place in the austrian alps and I'm not sepp holzer - you know.
