I’m William Horvath, geologist turned permaculture farmer. In the last few years I’ve transitioned from working for the man and being trapped in the consumer-driven system to spending my days on my permaculture farm and doing my bit in restoring the landscape to the beauty we once took for granted.

I left my secure and well-paid job to pursue a more meaningful and resilient life because I believe the best way to ensure an abundant future for myself and my family is by starting a permaculture farm and playing an active role in providing for our needs.​

My dream is to create a lush green landscape with acres of ponds and fully-established, mature food forest, produce an abundance of food and resources, and eventually be able to sustain myself and my family financially from the farm.

I’m not there yet and still have long way to go on my permaculture journey, but I already have taken the first steps towards a better future, and I’m happy to share those practical steps with you…

I don’t consider myself to be an expert on permaculture, I’m still working through many of the same issues just the same as you. Think of me like Tim Ferris for farmers, I take complex permaculture subjects, research them and learn from the best, test them out for myself, and then deconstruct everything I learned into simple yet practical step-by-step guides.

This way you don’t have to endlessly search the Internet, waste time on the things that don’t work and eventually end up feeling overwhelmed by all the information out there…
