What do trees know that we don't? 13-year-old inventor Aidan Dwyer realized that trees use a mathematical formula to gather sunlight in crowded forests. Then he wondered why we don't collect solar energy in the same way. Big oil companies need to watch out as this 13-year-old kid and his army of trees won't go down without a fight!
This kid is perhaps an inadvertent Permaculturalist. He's made an observation on a naturally occurring system and adapted it to suit the needs for a system that is a direct human benefit. As Masanobu Fukuoka (Bill Mollison's inspiration) says, "It's all about making a thoughtful observation to avoid thoughtless labour."
“A society grows great when old men plant trees whose shade they know they shall never sit in.” ~Greek Proverb
