WorlD Domination Gardening

Utilize the power of wood, soil, water, and machine

No longer does gardening need to be back breaking, endless labor to produce food. World Domination Gardening explains how to harness nature's unpredictability to grow more food with less work.

Through these three movies, you will not only see two large scale food systems be created in just a few days, but you will also acquire the logic behind these tactics. Whether you are in a cold climate or a warm one, you can gain methods that will work for you.

Engineer your property for resilient food production

This is no fancy pants, scripted Hollywood movie. This is raw, unscripted problem-solving with colorful language and authenticity. You will see the tactics and logic of how to harvest water and create thriving microclimates. With World Domination Gardening, you will get three movies (Ponds, Swales, and Hugelkultur) for one low price. 

These three movies came about from a video of a 3-day workshop in hot Southern California, USA. The workshop covered the earthworks for building a pond without a liner, a swale, and a hugelkultur bed on a terrace. Then more footage was added by doing the same workshop over again in a colder climate.

A year later, we returned to the first workshop site and added even more footage! We even had an evaluation by Geoff Lawton, one of the leading experts on large-scale earthworks and permaculture food systems.


Clean and store water naturally

No plastic pond liners needed! Ensure a robust supply of clean water for you, your plants, and your animals by creating a natural pond. Watch a sealed pond be created in just three days.

This movie covers:

 - Digging and sealing a pond with just what nature provides
 - Directing excess water where you need it
 - Removing toxins and pollutants from your water supply

 - Storing water for long-term use

Direct water where you want it

Reduce irrigation needs by channeling rain water where you want it to irrigate your land, all while crafting a beneficial microclimate.

This movie covers:
 - Utilizing laser levels to engineer a swale on contour
 - Constructing swales to create cool microclimates in hot regions
 - Preventing and utilizing erosion
 - Creating systems that irrigate your land with only rain water

Put wood and soil to work for you

Nature can be unpredictable, but there are ways to ensure food production by harnessing that unpredictability. Hugelkultur does this by holding in water, feeding beneficial microorganisms, and creating diverse microclimates to ensure food production. Visualize how to quickly jumpstart your garden to create lasting systems that continue to produce food with less water, fertilizer, and work.

This movie covers:
 - Massive scale hugelkultur to engineer both warmer and cooler microclimates 

 - Sun-scoop hugelkultur to push climate boundaries 

 - The wood and other material that can be used in a hugelkultur

 - How to harness unpredictability to be more resilient
