Beyond food supply, one of the ways in which humans have increased their life expectancy, in my opinion, is to have hot water on demand. We all consume it, but have we ever thought just how much energy this consumes and how that energy is produced? At nearly 20% of household consumption on average in the USA, well thats a lot and there are alternatives for sure!

Trained as both a Permaculture Designer and Fish and Wildlife Manager, Doug Doug Crouch in his beloved paw paw groves has extensive knowledge surrounding landscape planning and food production systems. This regenerative design and implementation work spans the globe ranging in contexts and climates including tropical agro-forestry, Mediterranean organic gardening, and temperate suburban edible landscaping. To facilitate this work he founded TreeYo Permaculture thus building off his other formal training in small business management. Incorporating this knowledge and experience into sustainability educational programming has now become Doug’s main focus as he continues his ecological design and holistic development at Treasure Lake.
