This week, we welcome to the show the legendary Robyn Francis. Robyn is one of permaculture’s leading teachers and proponents.
We talk about the movement's early days, some reasons for optimism today, interconnectivity and building stone circles in the subtropics.
Note: This episode was recorded on location. You can view the video version on YouTube.
This week we welcome to the show permaculture designer and theorist, Dan Palmer. Dan is the host of the podcast, Making Permaculture Stronger, where he facilitates fascinating discussions on what’s right and what’s wrong with permaculture and where it might be headed next. And the tl;dr is that what’s wrong with permaculture is, in the main, what’s wrong with everything else.
So we have a great discussion on the theory of design in general, the shortcomings of western categorisations and their dualist implications and, somewhat improbably, merging with a chicken.
It’s a truly fantastic chat. Enjoy.
This week it is my extra special pleasure to be speaking with one of the co-originators of permaculture itself, David Holmgren. David is an author, educator, designer, activist and permaculturalist (obviously) with many decades experience.
He joins us today to talk about his fantastic new project and accompanying book, Retrosuburbia, the details for which you will find in the show notes.
Extremely good times.
