My guest for this episode is Rafter Sass Furguson, a PhD student at the University of Illinois whose doctoral thesis involves visiting and documenting 50 self-identified permaculture farms across the United States. Though that work forms the body of our discussion, along the way we touch on science literacy, permaculture education, crowd-funding of scientific research, permaculture and metaphysics, farms and financial permaculture, and his work as an agroecologist and how that discipline informs his teaching and practice of permaculture. Quite a bit to cover in the 45 minutes or so of our conversation.
If you’d like to learn more about Rafter and his work, first listen to this interview as an introduction and then delve in deep by visiting his website at LiberationEcology.org.
Do you know someone farming with permaculture? Are you someone who is farming with permaculture? I’d love to hear about your work and experiences of applying this system of regenerative design to your efforts.
