Introducing the Deep Living Project

Hey Deep Living People!

My names Todd Mansfield and I’m one of the co-creators of The Deep Living Project. The aim is to bring inspiring projects about people living an alternative lifestyle to you! Using short film we focus on people working in permaculture, regenerative farming, natural building techniques, connecting with nature and lots more. We believe that the only thing stopping us from living in abundance is a paradigm shift, the community and the know-how to make it happen.

Vertical Gardening- Growing Up not Out

Vertical gardening will be a huge space maker. Using all that vertical space isn’t something I see every day. Sharon, from the Byron College, is definitely onto all that vertical real estate and she’s demonstrating an awesome Permaculture principle Each Element Preforms Multiple Functions
Not only is she using vertical space (up to 3+ metres!) to grow food, she’s also using the climbers to shade her house from the harsh afternoon sun. Check out the video below for more!

Time Out- Family Time…

This is a quick little blog post just as an informal update on the Project.
There has been tons going on…not all Permaculture related. I’d say almost too much going on. I’ve never been so time poor in my life!
The most important thing at the moment is that my parents are visiting from cold and snow covered Canada. I haven’t seen them for over 4 years and they’ve never been to visit me in Australia! Crazy heh?

Worm Farming- Turning Garbage into Gold

Worm farming would have to be one of my top approaches to feeding the soil and keeping my plants growing happy and healthy. I find it to be an excellent way to keep adding small and continuos hits of fertility. According to Jackie French worm manure or castings contain between 1-4% nitrogen and 0.3-3.5% phosphorus as well as a number of trace elements. And we know how important all that goodness is!
