Today is the discussion recorded live at The Riverside Project outside of Charles Town, West Virginia. My guests are Nicole Luttrell of Deeply Rooted Design, Jesse Wyner of Liberty Root Farm, Ashley Davis, a permaculture design certified herbalist who runs Meadowsweet Botanicals, and Diane Blust, a former government employee starting her own permaculture homestead, Chicory Hill Farm.
Join me again in two weeks, on October 22 for the second half of this conversation which includes members of the audience joining in, and when I’ll share my thoughts and comments about everything covered in the two conversations.
Opportunities like this trip to West Virginia depend on the support of listeners, and the sponsorship of people doing good work such as Jen Mendez at PermieKids. In addition to her own podcasts that explore the topics of children, permaculture, and education, which I recommend you check out if your life involves any of these three subjects, she also offers a number of courses on Educational Design, an ongoing series of EDGE Alliances — topical webinars with featured guests — and personal consultations. Recently she added a series of electronic campfires, in cooperation with Dr. David Blumenkrantz and the Center for Youth and Community, that expands on the recent conversation we shared on Youth and Community Development and Rites of Passage. Find out more at PermieKids.com.
Should you decide to join in on any of these courses or other offerings, know that Jen extended a discount of 10% off of her courses and other materials to Patreon supporters.
From here, next week on October 15 is a conversation with Joshua Peace Seeker Hughes. What started as a casual conversation resulted in a broad ranging interview about permaculture, creating opportunities, using capital to make a difference, and assisting our friend and neighbors. Joshua donated a PDC course at this farm in Costa Rica to the podcast which you can enter to win. Find the complete details by clicking on the Costa Rica tab.
After the next round table discussion, on October 29 Lisa Rose, author of Midwest Foraging, joins me to share her story. November 5 I speak with Josh and Derek of The Gibbs House project at Western Michigan University. Plus you’ll find some Permabyte episodes scattered in between those regular releases.
If along the way you have questions for me, a past guest, or just want to know more, get in touch.
Until the next time, spend each day creating the world you want to live in by taking care of Earth, your self, and each other.
