My guest for this episode is Mark Shepard, owner of New Forest Farm and author of Restoration Agriculture. This is the final piece in a series of three interviews Mark and I recorded to talk about Restoration Agriculture practices and to answer listener questions.
In this episode we discuss four topics based around listener questions.
- What is Mark’s “Oil Cartel?”
- What place does keyline design have on a small scale site?
- What techniques does Mark suggest for water retention on a flat area?
- What tips does Mark have for starting seedlings where you are unable to water daily or weekly?
I enjoyed these conversations because of the different voice and perspective that Mark brought to the table. These really expanded my thoughts on how we can practice permaculture in many different ways underneath the same umbrella. Mark focuses on large scale agricultural restoration. My focus is on communication and outreach. We each have a role to fill.
Where do you see your niche in the permaculture community? Where do you fit into this big puzzle of creating a better world? Is there any way I can help you find your fit? I’d love to hear from you.
