I like that one! Another was to pick the blackberries and make pies. Then arrange with arborists to bring loads of alder wood chips in exchange for pies.

Cut the canes and then cover with 18 inches of wood chips. Labor intensive, but quick results! My answer was "put a string of electric around the blackberries and then run pigs in there. Somebody asked Sepp how to get rid of invasive blackberries. Sepp's answer: "put a string of electric around the blackberries and then run pigs in there.

And then somebody asked what if you don't have pigs?

Sepp said "then you have to do the pigs work! More on clearing blackberries. Sepp Holzer on running pigs in a riparian area This was my question. I feel Sepp is quite the expert in riparian areas. After all, a lot of the work he does is in creating riparian areas.

And a lot of farmers are now blocking their animals from riparian areas. Often due to government pressure. I run my animals in riparian areas - it is some of the best land! I think the problems with animals in riparian areas are fully compensated for with several things, but mostly a paddock shift system.

I asked Sepp's response was something on the order of utter confusion. Why would you NOT run pigs in riparian areas? He then went on to make it clear that he runs his pigs in all of his riparian areas. In the class Sepp Holzer talked about quite a few things, but one of the most important things I remember is that Sepp wanted to make it clear that what he advocates is "Holzer Permaculture" which is different from "Permaculture.

Sepp Holzer on keeping animals off of trees On the first full day we toured a farm where the animals had wiped out nearly all growth.

The land owner's intent was to get a fresh start. So, first run too many animals in there to eliminate all of the weeds and Then come in and plant the stuff you want to keep. Sepp was very direct and did not mince words: He did not approve. Sepp pointed out how only the trees were left, but since animals had nibbled at the bark so much, he called these trees "standing dead.

I first wrote this section from memory and it turns out I made lots of mistakes. Fortunately, somebody else that was there helped me to remember details and she has the book that mentions this which is all in german, but she speaks german! First you start with a cast iron kettle and bury it a bit and put a cup of water in the bottom. Then fill another kettle with bones, put a screen over it and then plop the bone kettle upside down on the other kettle.

Then pack clay around the edges to make a good seal.

Then Pile up some dirt and build a big fire over the whole thing. Here is my lame attempt at drawing Sepp Holzer's bone sauce contraption. Keep the fire going for an hour or two and then let it sit for a day. Then collect the nasty gunk from the bottom.

Apparently this smells awful. Smear a little of this around the trunk of any tree and animals won't ever touch that tree.

I spent weeks trying to get two matching pots from site. In the end, I spent two hours tracking down pots that would work without breaking the bank.

For the pots in the video I bought two of these. More about Sepp Holzer's recipe for bone juice. Sepp Holzer on sealing ponds and "the monk" Sepp does not like to draw pictures.

In twelve days of training, Sepp never did a powerpoint, although he did have somebody else show some of his pictures from previous projects. The way he conveys nearly all information is through telling stories and interpretive dance.

By "interpretive dance" I mean that he speaks a lot through his hands. Maybe that was just because most of us in the audience didn't speak german - but I see him doing it in the german video too. Through interpretive dance.

He places his right elbow in his left hand and makes his right forearm perfectly vertical. After a second, he moves his right fist left and right a few inches. I've seen him do this about 40 times now.

All ponds have a high flow over flow that is used sporatically, but the monk is there for 24 hours a day, days a year. It is a pipe that goes through the dam at a low point. Inside the pond there is an elbow that will connect this pipe with a pipe that goes to the surface.

The top of the second pipe will then determine the water level of the pond. These two pipes and the elbow are "The Monk". The key is, that the elbow is a tight fit, but can still slide a little. So if you move the monk side to side, you can adjust the depth of the pond. When we were at Mowich farm, Sepp was quick to point at a culvert and holler "catastrophe! He then tells a story about how there will be a great rain storm at 2am and the culvert plugs, the water rises, runs over the dam and the dam is destroyed.

As part of the story he holds his hands together and places them next to his head to show the pond owner asleep at 2am. He then talked about how they use the monk in some interesting ways to "vacuum" up algae, elodea and even silt.

New Event in ! Permaculture Seminar with Sepp Holzer in the Mandalagarten in April 4 - 9, Germany, about 2 hours from Frankfurt "Ask Nature, ask you land, your water, your animals, whether they feel good under your guidance. It is about sustainable methods of gardening and landscaping that align with the given local conditions. In the seminar of the remodeling of the garden will be continued: the targets now include the construction of a crater garden.

Through the designing of different levels of elevation different habitats result for a multitude of animals and plants. Sepp Holzer is known for a vivid and clear manner of conveying his knowledge and experience. He seems the voice of reason in a world where a disconnect from nature is imperiling land, water, and people.

He is a farmer, author, and an international consultant for natural agriculture.

He took over his parents' mountain farm business in and pioneered the use of ecological farming, or permaculture, techniques at high altitudes 1, to 1, meters above sea level after being unsuccessful with regular farming methods. Called the "rebel farmer" because he persisted in these practices despite being fined and even threatened with prison for practices such as not pruning his fruit trees unpruned fruit trees survive snow loads that will break pruned trees.

He has also created some of the world's best examples of using ponds as reflectors to increase solar gain for passive solar heating of structures, and of using the microclimate created by rock outcrops to effectively change the hardiness zone for nearby plants.

He has also done original work in the use of Hugelkultur and natural branch development. He is conducting permaculture "Holzer Permaculture" seminars at his farm and worldwide, while continuing to work on his alpine farm.Alternative Agriculture Sepp rants a bit about modern agriculture here. While at the same time providing a habitat for biodiversity. He also talks all the time about experimenting and trying things out to see how they work best on your own property.

Our goal with permaculture is to restore a damaged landscape. He is author of several books and the subject of the film The Agricultural Rebel. Of course we all want to read about Sepp's experiences, but we would also like to jump in and apply this to our own lives and projects.
