Renewable-Fuel Cargo Ships, Permaculture Food Forests, & Community

Jul 5, 2021 | 0 comments

In episode #012 of the podcast, we spoke to visionary Lynx Guimond of Sailcargo Inc. He tells us about his journey from bee-keeping and building tree platforms in the mountains, to help tackle the massive environmental challenges the modern maritime industry poses.

In this video, we explore the homestead that's been growing from within the Sailcargo shipyard, built by a team of ‘happy and healthy’ expert shipbuilders from around the globe.

Lynx has assembled this crew to help create a zero-emission ocean vessel set to sail between Central America and Europe.

Learn how they're taking full advantage of natural resources to eliminate pollution and waste.

From tree planting to custom crafting tools, hear about some of the incredible developments they’ve made and what plans they have for the future.

  • You can see the full-length video of our interview on our YouTube Channel.
  • You can also listen to it on your favorite podcast player or our website on this page.

What a cool project!

    From assembling the perfect team of like-minded individuals forming a worker-owned enterprise to supporting the region creating jobs and planting forests, we’ll dive into some of the incredible ways Lynx is changing the game and building a better tomorrow for all.

    If you want to know more about producing high-producing food forests, in city and suburban environments, I recently came across an excellent course on the topic. You can find it here.

    If you take the course, I’d love to hear what you think.

    Special thanks to Chela Rie for helping me take extra footage of this beautiful place and for accompanying me on this amazing journey!
