Immerse yourself into a healing symbiosis with nature by learning how to build your own Water Self Sufficiency ecosystem. Having your own abundant source of portable water is paramount to your sovereignty. 

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 too many variables that are 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. Bio-UPgrade your hands-on skills with Bio-Veda's online Off - The - Water - Grid eco tech video class 



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 which turns city rain into living spring water

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

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

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

In our Abundance of Water online step-by-step video immersion you will learn how to practically build up your own Water Self Sufficiency life supporting eco system

About me

My name is Alosha Lynov, I am a founder of Bio-Veda Academy. I was born in Uzbekistan, grew up in Russia and then moved to South Africa in my teenage years with my family


My love for liquid architecture, rivers and indigenous forests set me on a journey around the world learning practical permaculture wisdom as well as EMR & Geopathic stress protection from international ecological masters. During my travels, I have attended 11 international workshops on self-sustainability in the fields of ecological housing, treatment of rain and UP cycling of wastewater as well as the growing of organic food


Some of the teachers I learned from are Geoff Lawton, Mike Reynolds, John Todd, Josh Kearns, John Jeavons, Ibrahim Karim, Nader Khalili, Hajjar Gibran as well as many others.


I have practically experimented all I learned for the last 12 years on my farm and urban permaculture playground homestead in South Africa (which we abandoned in 2020 and relocated to Russia). Now all of this eco-tech will be developed for cold climate and new lessons will be added shortly.


Making countless expensive mistakes in my permaculture ecosystems assisted me to perfect the BioVeda nature-inspired water ecosystems and eco-homes online courses.


Since 2007 Alosha I presented 4 practical water, 3 dome building workshops as well as various seminars presenting the wisdom of self-sufficient living all over the world.multiple global workshops teaching Water Self Sufficiency and Eco Home construction. 

My ethos is to catch what comes from the sky, treat wastewater and garbage as assets and creatively use natural resources to create self-regenerative Bio-Spheres induced with beauty, life-force and spacial comfort.

What do our students say about our training
"I am saving 2500 Litres per week"

After I finished this grey water wetland eco system using Alosha's online training course, I have about 2500 Litres extra  to use every week in the garden.

"Your course is Awesome"

Thank you so much for all of the time and effort you put into it! I am also grateful for showing the mistakes you made in the videos as they are also great for learning. I am in the process of starting the wetland section in the water course, and am very much looking forward to learning the techniques, plants, and processes you are using. 


Please know that even if there is a slow start to your dream you have changed our lives, and if you can do that with at least one person it is worth it, because in time another person will see the value. And perhaps the seed needs to wait before germinating.


Thank you for all of your work and the classes. What you are doing is really important. 

In gratitude, Shawn and Renae

"The feeling of this course is very inclusive"

Alosha, your authentic energy for the good of all by offering this gift of training and guiding us is the leading reason I am on this program. The personal commentary is so helpful and allows me to make the notes I need in my work book. The practical sections are paced well allowing time for thought and clearly show that 'organic' thinking means we can enhance decisions at every step. I have enjoyed one on one conversation already to fine-tune some details which is awesome and fills me with confidence.

" I found it to be impressively thorough and , at times , downright entertaining"

I am still in the midst of the training. I have greatly enjoyed it thus far and plan to continue working through the material. I have been so inspired by this course i am now planning for a future career move to contract and build eco homes in my region.!!  Eventually would like to have several of these homes and run them as rentals.  I am obsessed with the working of the land , growing food , and that.  But i also want to be a landlord and provide safe and healing homes  for people. 

I consider myself a 3rd-gen permaculturist. I am 31 year old female and live in New Orleans , Louisiana , USA.

Simple to understand and engaging to watch, with all the tools and practical advice in one place.

I have known and worked with Alosha in the exhibition and eventing industry for well over ten years and have been following his work with Bio Veda with great enthusiasm since he started this new and exciting venture. I have watched many of his videos that are not only informative, but authentic, entertaining and often amusing.


Alosha is a pioneer in the field and has invested a great deal of time and money to bring these informative courses to the public. If you are daunted by the prospect of harvesting your own rain water and living off the grid, I highly recommend you immerse yourself in Alosha’s world and online courses. His friendly and honest approach has had me riveted. These practical, DIY online manuals are exactly what I have been looking for.

"my mind is opening to all the incredible applications"

I have enjoyed every minute of the education presented in these courses. More importantly, my mind is opening to all the incredible applications in and around my home and community.  I can’t wait to see my wetlands and gardens flourishing with abundance. I’m so grateful to witness simple solutions I can implement. I see conquest of the challenges we all face as we make a better home for our families. 

I also shared your videos with my 9 year old and 4th grade students here in Utah in the United States. I have never seen them so excited. They were researching and talking about permaculture, aquaponics, kombucha, and the incredibly beautiful design work of Gaudi. So much fun and so inspiring.   I look forward to be seeing the future they create. Thank you, Alosha, for planting a visionary seed in the minds of our children. I am so excited to try the methods you have shown here.
