practical application and wisdom of countless mistakes to produce the most advanced and visually detailed course of it’s kind on the planet. 

Introducing Abundance of Water online eco course that will assist you to turn your home into a self sustainable living machine that catches and harvests rain, stores it discrete or visually appealing reservoirs, filters this water with a bio char slow sand filter and pressurises it to your home,  whilst  utilising  ALL of your bath , shower and kitchen waste water for growing of organic food  and flushing of toilets.

With  our Abundance of Water course you finally have a road map with detailed step by step instructions that will assist you to design your home and garden to look after you whilst reducing your water bill by over  53.7 %

Harvesting

Harvesting module will cover all water harvesting strategies including hard surface run off such as roofs, drive ways and even catchment of water from the road. We will show you how to make a first flush system that will keep all the dirt from going into your water tank. We will also cover in detail a variety of earthworks and show you how to construct terraces with logs and curvilinear low cost sandbags tops that maximises on all the rain that does wall down and stop all soil erosion. We will also construct swales made entirely from you and your neighbours' garden waste. These contour line earthworks  will catch soil and nutrients from uphill and store incredible abundance of water in your soil for slow release to your plants. 

Storage

In this module we will practically cover the theory behind successful water storage. The do's and the don'ts. We will guide you step by step on how to create your own extremely durable and long lasting sand bag water tank that can attach to a straight house surface. We will also construct from start to finish a low cost ferro cement tank that will cost you 1/4 of a plastic one and will outlast it by a additional 50 + years.

I will guide you through a construction of a 40000 litre underground water tank that will soon be a support for an entire house that will be constructed above it. With this hidden water tank no-one will even know that you have water and for those tight spaces this is a perfect opportunity to have a lot of water under a driveway / garage or even a house. As a cherry on top I will also go through the details on how I converted my 120.000 pool into a back up storage that I can swim in and irrigate from.

Filtration &
Delivery

In filtration module we will cover an entire process of creation from start to finish of a Slow Sand Bio Char Filter. From making your own gassifier that has no smoke to making the biochar from Invasive species of Alien hard wood. We will cover the plumbing and all the components of this 4 stage low tech and low cost filter (100 USD cost ). The filter will deliver 300 Litres of water per day for 3 years after which the biochar will need to be replaced and another  3 years of delivery guaranteed for indefinite period of time. I will also show you how to make your own vortex pipe that I bought for 800 USD. You will be able to make this water enlivening copper vortexes for under 30 USD. We will cover the benefits of magnetized water and how magnets can be be incorporated on your pipes . After this module you will be able to treat your own city rain water to super drinking quality water re-mineralised with seashells and stones that you have found on your adventures. I will go through in detail how we plumbed the system off government grid and connected our biochar filter to entire home with a pressurised pump. Click here to see the water test from polluted city rain treated by our biochar filter ( green column is city tap water )

Up Cycling

This is our favourite module, here we practically show you how to create your own wetland for grey water treatment , i.e. all of your bath and shower water, so this resource can safely be used for irrigation of organic vegetables, flowers and herbs without clogging the soil with soapy salts. We will also show you how this grey water that you used yesterday to bath with can flush the toilet today. Wetlands of various shapes and sizes made of 3 different low cost and easily available materials will be showcased and debriefed. Full constructions practicalities are explained in detail set by step from start to the end of each project in all of our modules . Two styles of wetland types will be constructed, one with visible water and the other with floating plants as well as a wetland where water travels in the stone and the plants are rooted without any visible water on the surface. We will also go into a lot of detail on how to construct a grease trap for under 20 USD  that can treat kitchen water that it can irrigate your herbs or fruit trees passively with gravity flow. We will also create a sewerage treatment wetland from beginning to end and plant it out with aquatic plants. This wetland will treat all water from your biogas digester / septic tank safely with out any smell 

Food machine 

This is a really fun and easy project where I will show you how you can easily construct a food growing machine that can grow over 100 vegetables and herbs on 1.2 square metres. It also grows 15 trays of micro greens and wheat grass as well as nursery seedlings  on the non sunny side. It is self irrigated from your grey water or can be combined with it's own wetland. Two sizes will be shown . We will go through the drip irrigations, tiny valves that sprinkle just over the trays , what varieties of plants to that will drive at different locations of plants. We will construct a worm tower that gets positioned in the middle of the food growing machine that automatically drips out earthworm tea. This food machine is perfect for small spaces as little under 1 square metre. The entire food growing machine can be constructed for less than 100 - 200 USD (depending where you live)

Getting to Self Sustainability was not easy as Alosha did not have a full practical road map

Alosha acquired the water wisdom through extensive experimentation, coupled with hundreds of sketches over the last decade. Whilst attending a variety of live workshops  around the world, thousands of hours of practical experimentation and lots of expensive mistakes he figured out how to create a self sustaining  water system in the tiniest of spaces in the city

Bio Veda Academy will inspire you to design your way to Self Regenerative Abundance and practically implement it around your living environment through a series of weekend projects suited to variety of budgets and time lines

This training program has been tested through numerous live workshops, at our Eco conscious living centre in Johannesburg to provide a learning model that is easy to follow and understand.

To compile this comprehensive practical hands-on training, the information and wisdom, from top international experts on holistic water management, have been gathered through a variety of live workshops that Alosha attended since 2008.

Some of the experts that he learned from include Geoff Lawton where Alosha got his permaculture design certification. He studied under Mike Reynolds from EarthShip Biotecture where constructed wetlands and botanical cells have been perfected for over 45 years.  Bio Char Filtration  was learned from Josh Kearns from Aqueous Solutions. John Todd taught Alosha the basics of ecological design , biomimicry and construction of eco living machines.

Why Does This Training Deliver Such Incredible Results?
Here Are 6 Reasons Why Students See Amazing Results From the Bio Veda Course
1. Detailed theory prior to any project 

Classroom style theory will be presented that is well researched from the top eco literature on the planet . The theory will be condensed to a practical application for the city small environments.

2. Practical step by step video instructions all the way

I really managed to get the camera into all the steps of each project and all possible angles to show you exactly how to do execute all the parts of  every construction.  I tried to replicate exactly what you would see if you were to attend the course live. 

3. Debrief of mistakes and how to avoid them

Within each module I dedicate a section where I will discuss the mistakes and hiccups I encountered even after participating in  live 7 -10 day workshop I attended. These mistakes have cost me over 20000 USD. I will debrief them and show you the  perfected working model whilst avoiding these unnecessary bumps.

4. A variety of projects to suit any timeline and budget

Quality drinking water is non existent in the cities, so having your own water that is 100 X better than tap water is a key sustainable practice. Also keep in mind that our governments are putting whole bunch of additional chemicals into our water to keep pipes from corroding, florid for "heathy" teeth as well as a bunch of their mind dumbing substances.

5. Q & A video recordings after each module 

For the duration of 12 months we will take all the questions about each particular module / project and answer it in as much details as possible. Future answers to questions posted by other students will also be available to you for the duration of 10 years 

6. Go at your own pace with no down time

One of the main frustrations in attending live training all over the planet is that there is a lot of standing around time where people can not participate because of instructors inability to manage 30 students or the job at hand only requires 2 hands. We have eliminated this completely by presenting you with the theoretical and practical knowledge you need to know in order to execute a task. You will be able to watch the course in your own time and go back to any of the sections that did not make sense .

When You Go Through This Program And Reach
The State Of Water Abundance you will:

01

Feel safe and empowered

The water supply can be interrupted through a variety of reasons totally out of your control. A government upheaval, electrical power lines that go down,  bursts pipes and most important is municipal storage dams being empty due to recent changes in weather patterns coupled with unsustainable use of water will result in your taps running dry. Once you start harvesting, treating and up cycling your own water you will be in control of this vital resource and you'll be empowered no matter what happens out there.

02

Not rely on Authorities to provide you with water

The government is adding a cocktail of chemicals for treatment as well as population control purposes. I recently discovered that most of the pipes delivering water within our city are made of ASBESTOS. By catching your own water and treating it with a low tech bio char filter with special revitalisation DIY process you will get a water similar in quality and life force to pristine mountain

spring

03

Feel healthier and vibrant  

Drinking living water rejuvenates all of your organs and adds a lot of energy to your daily activities. Your brain will fires up and your intuition will awaken. You really start to experience the great feeling of the creator and it usually comes from drinking living pure water combined with organic food and a affirmative thought process.

04

Save over 53.7 % on water  bill

Rain is free and it is there for us to catch it and use it. Whilst city rain is more polluted than rain in the country side, the bio char slow sand filtration will get 100% of nasties out of your water. All particles have a certain Nano size. These particles get trapped in the bio char filter. Combined with a correctly installed water storage tank where a drain valve is positioned to blast out the settling particles, the city rain water now becomes as pure as the best spring water on the planet. Unlike reverse osmosis which strips water of everything, including beneficial minerals which results in “clean” and hungry water robbing your organisms of minerals so it can replenish itself, the Bio Char Slow Sand Filtration leaves the minerals in whilst the revitalisation module adds more beneficial ones and life force into the water. 

05

See Your Vision and divine plan with clarity

One of the greatest challenges we all face is to find our purpose. In this program, you’ll discover exercises that will help you gain the clarity and the certainty you need to really commit to living a life that truly inspires you.

In this bonus we  included over 3 hours of footage from various paid consults that commissioned  Alosha Lynov to bring the self regenerative design to a variety of different properties. Alosha describes a variety of topics, in a suburban as well as a farm plot, such as tree mulching, earthworks, grey water treatment, positioning of wetlands, land angles and organic food growing. He discusses with a client a problem sewerage area with faulty septic and how to resolve such a blockage in an ecological manner. These consults will give you a great perspective on what can be implemented in your garden with a bit of creativity and literally free materials.

In this 90 minute presentation, from one of our live eco workshops, Thomas Linders presents basics behind grey and black water wetland ecology. Thomas describes in detail a commercial wetland that he constructed for an upmarket hotel to treat all of their shower, bath and toilet water. This presentation will give you a very good understanding of what can be done with plants for water filtration whilst gently blending the eco filtration into the surrounding landscape. Thomas is one of the leading permaculture teachers and water wizards in Africa with over 25 years of experience in ecological field of water filtration, organic food growing and earthworks implementation.
