WHY GROW FOOD?
I have been making a documentary film about Permaculture over the last few years and became inspired to start growing a lot of my own home-grown veggies using only natural or freely available resources to grow food.
When Coronavirus hit, my sister was eager to learn how to grow her own food at home and with thousands of people across the globe in a similar situation, I became compelled to share the knowledge I had gained to help her and anyone grow food, no matter where they are around the world using the elements and resources found in nature, using permaculture design.

WHAT WE ARE DOING
Being a filmmaker, I decided to create a five part series that explains what I had learned to be able to create my own soil from sand, that then allowed me to start growing everything from sweat potatos, to avocados, fruit trees and vegetables all year round.
In this series Grow Food From Scratch, you will learn how to use Permaculture to learn how to read the elements so you can design from nature and create a highly productive, self sustaining veggie garden in your own home or community in any climate. Learn how to build your own soil from scratch, plan your garden around the elements, plant and grow your food and how to create a years worth of compost in just 18 days so you can grow fresh produce anywhere you are.

Coronavirus has disrupted and changed how we interact with each other. For me, it has been a scary realisation of how reliant I had become on everything from food to fresh water and how the slightest disruption can topple the fundamental things you need to survive.
While shooting Permaculture The Documentary, I met many people living sustainably and the one thing I learned is, the most important and the easiest way to make your first step towards being more self resilient is to grow your own food. Not only is it more simple than most gardening gurus might make out, but it is also something anyone can do, anywhere thanks to the power of nature.
The most important lesson I've learned from growing plants is 'Grow like Nature'. She has had millions of years to adapt, evolve and perfect growing. No synthetic fertiliser compares to the efficiency and productivity if you follow her steps. This series is about learning how to harness nature to grow food not only from scratch, but for free.
Growing an abundance of healthy food will not only save you money, but will also help the planet immensely by cutting down on huge amounts of waste, water and energy that is required to grow food commercially - which is an extra bonus for some tasty goodies in your backyard.
The most fantastic thing is, thanks to nature, it is possible to grow food anywhere there is water, sunlight, air and soil; which means you're more than likely reading this on planet earth, which means you are in luck you can do it too.
