    • The Verge Permaculture Grad Series - 10/11 - Luke Kimmel


      from light & soul Added 1,615 18 3

      Luke Kimmel is a young social entepreneur and permaculture designer who shows that both the entrepreneurial spirit and the desire to heal the planet can be satisfied through permaculture and urban farming. His vision and approach are based on the notion that humans can live in a way that makes us a positive force on planet earth, and that through following our hearts and dedicating ourselves, entrepreneurs and good-willed people have all the opportunity in the world to create small sustainable businesses / projects that can help them follow their dreams while making the world a better place. Prior to starting work in permaculture, Luke helped found and run a clothing company / artist collective / events company called Light & Soul, and had also undertaken ventures in product distribution, business development, and music management. Thus, Luke's approach to permaculture came through the lense of entrepreneurship, and all began when he first discovered yurts, and was extremely intrigued by the concept of building his own home for less than $15 000. This led him to examine the concept of self sufficiency, and eventually move to a farm to in Winlaw, BC to take his first Permaculture Design Certificate course . After taking this course and spending a couple months living on a farm, Luke knew that he had found his true calling - to live out his vision of paradise through cultivating sustainable human habitats and creating opportunitites for meaningful work and community development. Now, with the help of 3 other long time friends and business partners, Luke helps run their company Leaf Ninjas which does urban farming and permaculture design / edible landscaping in Calgary, AB. The Leaf Ninjas now cultivate a half acre of urban farmland spread between 10 back yards in the inner city neighborhoods of Inglewood and Ramsay, and will be selling produce to local restaurants and at the Inglewood & Ramsay Farmers Market which they helped found in 2012. Over the past 3 years Luke has consulted on a wide variety of permaculture projects ranging from urban yards to community gardens to small and medium sized homesteads and acreages. The Leaf Ninjas have now designed and installed 8 permaculture gardens in Calgary and they plan to increase that number significantly in 2013, while also offering consulting and design services geared towards DIY gardeners and land owners who want to foster a more meaningful connection with their landscape. Luke was also instrumental in shifting the focus of the company Light & Soul from clothing to video production, and helped produce the Verge Graduate Interview Series which you are watching now... So thank you for watching with us, and we hope you enjoy the videos :) vergepermaculture.ca leafninjas.ca

      • Maui Aquaponics


        from David Mercer Added 9,150 23 3

        The Hawaiian Islands are often called paradise. But living in the middle of the Pacific Ocean comes at a price. Supermarket chain “Wholefoods” is known locally as “Whole Paycheck.” And with a cost of living 30% higher than places like New York, the island is jokingly called “the palmed prison” because some people simply can’t afford to leave. To break this dependence, some residents are looking to aquaponics – a system that combines aquatic farming with hydroponics. Al Jazeera English investigates ... Filmed on Panasonic GH1.
