In our self study online comprehensive training you will practically learn how to build an affordable eco dome home which is inspired on permaculture principles. This Bio-shelter comes with its own custom build gutter for rain water harvesting, a constructed botanical wetland as well as an Earthship inspired truck tire septic - for all your responsible waste water treatment.
Our course covers in great detail how to build a hidden 10000 Gal underground water reservoir or bunker which is placed underneath your future home.
The water training course is part of this program and covers full rain water filtration through a slow sand biochar filter, as well as 2 more types water tanks. Extensive theory for all modules is included as well, combining some of the most important practical know how you need will need in getting yourself fully off the water grid.
We also teach a variety of other Super Adobe projects for natural pool conversion, a wavy flood proof wall as well as terraces which turn your garden into a sponge
We are currently developing all the water tech and eco home solutions for cold Russian climate !
Learn in comfort, wherever you are, how to :
build 2 types of dome homes from foundation all the way to skylight, Air Crete and a Super Adobe Dome. Includes intensive theory on: designing your home on graph paper + various climates, fengshui, bio geometry, tensile forces, plumbing etc.
In 2020 we will be building and recording an eco vault with a geodesic glass green house. Geodesic green house will transform this vault into low cost Earthship. This home will be designed to withstand the harshest climate on the planet and will be build during our 3 week live workshop in Russia 24th of May 2020
easily build beautiful curvilinear permaculture terraces which turn your garden into a sponge. We will also construct a 54 metre curvilinear wall with water / recycling / sleeping spaces. The bionincly shaped terraces and walls can frame any parking bays, tree benches and constructed wetlands.
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. We will also construct paddies for catchment of rain water from the road
build 3 types of water tanks for a variety of budgets and skill sets:
Ferro Cement 6000L + Sandbag 16000L + underground 40000L water reservoir underneath a dome home + build constructed wetland to transform chlorine pool into an eco pond
create 3 types of constructed wetlands which will take care of all your waste water. We will install (not make) a biogas digester which will make flammable methane with yet another constructed wetland to treat sewerage.
build your own DIY Bio Char filter & Bio Char from start to finish, which will treat city rain / borehole water at a rate of 300 litres per day. You will also learn how to pressurise it to your home and how to bring life to your water
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.
"By watching the videos on your course, I feel as if I have been there in person"
As an online student of your bioveda.co, first of all I would like to thank you for the fabulous course - the sharing of all your videos, the ideas that work, the mistakes, the failure etc. By watching the videos on your course, I feel as if I have been there in person doing the course and this had boost my confidence to such a level that I could dream of building my own dome house.
To cut the story short, last September an opportunity came my way to purchase a land. I started to build a dome house in that land with effect from 19th November 2018. The dome house is under construction and I am attaching herewith the today's photos and videos of the construction. Once complete this may be the first residential dome house in India.
Being in India, you know, there are a lot of disadvantages. Even though I am very much interested to build an aircrete or a super adobe dome, I found out that it is very very difficult (impossible, you may say) to get materials for the same.
In the end, I have to make a compromise. I thought let me see if I can build the dome house using materials and resources that are available locally. With that in mind, I went to the village, where my land is, and select a team of skilled and unskilled labourers (daily wages) and started. I am using AAC blocks to build the dome house, which are similar to aircrete blocks and very light weight.
Since 19th November 2018, I am been thinking of writing to you, but then I thought that when I have a problem, I will write. But till date, the construction is going smoothly. Today after me and a friend filmed the construction using his drone camera, I feel that I should not wait any longer and should share this with you.

"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.
"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
"I love your tutorials. It is worth every dime tenfold!"
I own 50 acres in upstate South Carolina on a dead end culdesac Rd. I am blessed to have creeks and swamps, forests, and fields on my property. I plan to build as many eco dome homes as the rules of man will let me by utilising all the wonderful skills and knowlege you have so amazingly shared. Thank you so much.

"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.

" 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.
"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. The feeling with this Course is very inclusive. I have enjoyed one on one conversation already to fine-tune some details which is awesome and fills me with confidence.
"I am learning slowly and steady"
Thank you Alosha! It has been an is a blessing for me to watch and study your teachings since summer last year ( both dome construction and water master class) . I am learning slowly and steady because I definetly want to live as much as possible off grid in my own peace of land here in Norway. I am currently participating in growing my own organic vegetables, salads and berries at an organic farm and creating concious dance projects in a start up fase. I am definetly supporting your efforts in creating a more abundant, harmonic planet, life and a free life.
