In our step-by-step online permaculture in action video class, you'll learn simple DIY projects that make up your own life-supporting off-the-water-grid ecosystem for your city or countryside home

In our online video course, you'll learn how to build your own life-supporting off-the-water-grid ecosystem, that harvests, stores and filters rain, pressurizes this water to all your taps. All the grey and black water are UPcycled for garden irrigation and flushing of toilets.

Having your own abundant source of portable water is paramount to your sovereignty.

Skill up with Bio-Veda's DIY Water Self Sufficiency online video class 

Mike Reynolds from Earthship academy wisely stated that water supply is affected by war, political disputes, economic crisis, drought and now even the pandemic. Water availability is linked to way too many factors that are completely out of our control. 

Healthy living water for our bodies and for the growing of our food is a sure way to build a healthy immune system. 



Learn from the comfort of your home how to:

  1. Harvest rain and snow from road, pavements, roof and in the ground 

  2. Build beautiful and discreet water reservoirs that will enhance  any landscape

  3. Construct a low-cost biochar filter that turns city rain into living spring water

  4. Learn to build an Earthship Water Organizing Module designed by Mike Reynolds 

  5. Build biological botanical wetlands which reuse all the wastewater 7X over

  6. Transform a chlorine pool into a healthy eco pond for swimming &  water back up 

  7. Design and implement terraces & earthworks that makeup water-wise food forests


Learn build an alternative low cost gutter systems + simple permaculture earthworks that impregnate and store water in the ground. You will also learn how to build a simple leaf and dust catcher which filters roof water


Learn to construct 3 types of water tanks: Ferro Cement 6000L + Sandbag 16000L + underground 40000L water reservoir underneath a dome home + build constructed wetland to transform chlorine pool into an eco pond. 
NEW W.O.M - Learn how to build an Earthship Water Organizing Module 


Learn to build a Slow Sand Biochar filter which will treat 300 Litres of city rain or borehole water ,per day, and turn it into to pristine spring quality. You will also learn how to remove Iron from borehole water and pretreat and remove nutrients from funky harvested water prior to Bio Char filtration.


Learn to create 3 types of constructed wetlands which will take care of all your waste water. We will install a biogas digester which will make flammable methane from sewerage and build a wetland to turn poo into clean irrigation
