Throw To Grow Profile Series: Matthew Lynch / Permablitz HI

“Growing your own food is one of the most radical and revolutionary acts that you can possibly do.” Matthew Lynch

In this installment of the Throw To Grow Profile Series, we meet Matthew Lynch. Founder of The Asia-Pacific Center for Regenerative Design and permaculture guru. Matthew Lynch has lived several lives. Once a banker, Matt built a small fortune in his 20’s and then lost it in the economic shit storm of 2006/07. Matthew saw oppurtunity where many of us saw devastation. Matt did what most of us dream to do. He traveled the world.

Matthew spent two years traveling the globe living and learning. While in Australia, Matt studied Permaculture. Permaculture is a theory of ecological design which seeks to develop sustainable human settlements and agricultural systems, by attempting to model them on natural ecosystems. Permaculture is the combination of two, perment and agriculture. (Think about it…)

Matthew then took to the world, guided by a hybrid philosophy that combines the Principles of Permaculture with business sensibility. Matt traveled, studied, and applied his Permaculture teachings to Australia, New Zealand, Mongolia, Germany, and then back home to Hawai’i.

In this episode, we meet Dieter Runge. Dieter is an artist, musician, yogi, waterman, lover of life and food. Matt and Dieter connected when Dieter needed help with his garden.

Watch their story. Enjoy and share!!!
