Low Tech Laboratory is the creation of Paul Wheaton – a powerful advocate of permaculture. He was dubbed the Duke of Permaculture by both Geoff Lawton and Sepp Holzer, and The Bad Boy of Permaculture by Occupy Monsanto.

Paul is the owner of the  He is also the founder of CoderanchRich Soil, an organic Garden Master CourseFree HeatWood Burning Stoves and Wheaton Labs.  He began his journey toward permaculture innovation in 1995.  At that time, he had created Bananacom, a program used to communicate between computers before there was even the internet. He received his Advanced Master Gardener certificate in 1997, and started writing articles about permaculture techniques in 1999 (he also started a forum to discuss java programming at the same time). Five years later, in 2004, Paul started up his permaculture forums. And things have grown exponentially since!
