    This episode examines Principle 3: Obtain a Yield as presented by David Holmgren in his book, Permaculture: Principles and Pathways Beyond Sustainability. The focus went more towards the interrelation of the principles, and how obtaining a yield can influence the other guiding ideas of practicing permaculture.

    The show ends by turning back towards a need to obtain the yield of food, from the rules of 3 from disaster preparedness:

    • We can only live 3 minutes without air.
    • We can only live 3 hours without shelter.
    • We can only live 3 days without water.
    • We can only live 3 weeks without food.

    Food is essential to life. Food as a yield is nearly a commandment to our practices.

    Things wrap up with another recommendation to read 8 Forms of Capital by Ethan Roland and Gregory Landua.
