In this chat along with Sivananda Yoga Farm sponsor Vidya Chaitanya, Wayne discusses principles starting with with observing elements like wind, water, sun and topography in a specific property.

Bill provides alarming information on “peak soil.”  Together they note that permaculture’s goal is to create small, intensive ecologies, a foodweb where everything is exchanging with everything else. Episode 171.
