My guest for this episode is Dr. John Kitsteiner, a medical doctor and permaculture practitioner. He also runs the very good website, Temperate Climate Permaculture. I’ve known of him and his work from my times spent as a member of the Survival Podcast forums community, and through his site. A listener suggested him as a guest after he posted a series of articles titled Dr. Permaculture’s Guide to Healthy Eating Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3. After listening to this show, I highly recommend you go read those, as well as his article series The Myth of the Perfect Job, Parts 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6.
If you’ll be attending the Permaculture Voice Conference March 13-16, 2014, in Temecula, California, you can meet John. He will be there as an attendee and presenter. Tell him hello for me if you get a chance. He and I have never met, but I look forward to the opportunity in the future.
For more information on some of the ideas presented here, I recommend listening to the past interviews with Arthur Haines about Wild Foods, Mary Johnson’s introduction to nutrient dense farming, and Dan Kittredge’s conversation about nutrient dense foods.
From here, my next guest is Wayne Herring of Herring’s Green Grass Farm, a past guest, to continue the discussion about food and small scale farming.
In the meantime, I’ll be attending the A Gathering of Farmer’s conference on March 8th, 2014, at Wilson College in Chambersburg, PA. Part of my time there will be as a presenter for a Permaculture 101 workshop. If you’re in the area, stop by, and join in all the fun.
