My guest for this episode is Larry Santoyo, a permaculture designer and teacher currently located in California. He’s been a member of the community for some time and I enjoyed the conversation with him. He had me laughing, hard, quite a few times, though I removed them so you could hear him talking and not my guffawing in the background. His delivery is easy going, and, even though he said he doesn’t like soundbytes, incredibly quotable.
In this conversation we talk about Bill Mollison, the misrepresentation of permaculture, applying the concepts of permaculture broadly, and arriving at solutions.
Though his website is under construction, you’ll find his website, which includes contact information, at earthflow.com. He also teaches with the City of Angels Permaculture Academy, find our more about that course at cityofangelspermaculture.com.
I really enjoyed the note that we ended on,
“What about embracing sustainability because we love the things we love about the present, not
because we fear the future?”
and will leave that as it is for you to take out into the world.
Some of my favorite quotes from the conversation with Larry:
Apply it [permaculture] to everything equally.
There’s no skill we can’t use to get through this. We need everybody.
Sector’s trump everything. Sectors beat two of a kind.
Don’t impose a static solution on a dynamic problem.
You’re talking about the details when you need to be talking about the bigger pattern.
Learn how to do things. That’s gonna help people.
