A short, sweet, and fascinating way to welcome your weekend.
What you'll get:
Every week, I’ll squeeze 60 hours of permaculture into 3 minutes.
Why I'm doing this:
I was impressed with Tim Ferriss’ “5-Bullet Friday,” and realized that the worldwide permaculture community could use something similar. Thank you, Tim. There is an incredible amount happening, and it’s almost impossible to keep up. Even for me. So if you’re at all interested in permaculture and any of its connected topics, this is a massive time-saver. And it just might make the beginning of your weekend a bit more interesting.
What this is:
Between training interns here on our farm, consulting, connecting with other permaculture thought leaders … and actually farming (!), I spend at least 60 hours a week in some kind of permaculture activity. I have been living and breathing this for more than 30 years. I absolutely love it.
