About Howard Story

Humanity is now facing the planetary boundaries of our earth. Each of us must take notice and act or the earth will not be inhabitable within this century. Our mission since 2009 has been to focused on creating regenerative and integrated solutions for farmers and communities in Asia. Establishing Drought Proofing design, increasing food sovereignty in rural poor Asia, teaching in schools. Helping families increase farm income and build resilience thru holistic integrated food gardens.
Permaculture, regenerative Ag., school education and courses, eco-tourism, have all made a difference in lifting rural communities to a higher level of income. Integrative rice paddy and aquaculture shows great promise in higher yielding incomes. We use a multi disciplines approach, such as water drought proofing, PA Yeomans key-line design, coconut cow pasture rotation, banana/palm circle companion planting, food forest alley cropping and regenerative soil methods for local ecosystems. Food security, gender equity, economic empowerment and community resiliency go hand in hand with our teaching.

In 2011 we began teaching in Asia and since then we have taught a large number of students, done consulting and design work. Now we are coaching new leaders to do this work thru internships on our educatin and demonstration site in Thailand and thru partners in Lao, Cambodia, USA.
We have done work in (Laos, Cambodia, Malaysia, Nepal, Canada, Thailand, USA, Maynamar). Clients include private individuals, groups, communities, governments organizations as (Asia Development Bank), aid organizations as UNESCO, NGO's.
