Recorded live at the Mid-Atlantic Permaculture Convergence, in this episode Michael Judd shares stories of his life in South America picking coffee and meeting Nicaraguan migrant families, resulting in a love of that country that eventually lead him to permaculture and the creation of Project Bona Fide. Six year ago he returned to the United States where he started Ecologia Design and wrote Edible Landscaping with a Permaculture Twist.
Michael is an old friend of the show who continues to do incredible work by modeling what he wants to see in the world, while making permaculture ever more accessible through ideas like the Edible Forest Patch, and creating functional, beautiful designs. Ever step of the way he meets people where they are at so that their needs are forefront to the outcomes of every project.
I also consider his book one of the better introductions to permaculture for someone just getting started because he has provided simple, straightforward projects that can get someone involved within a few days of opening the cover, whether they are interested in the landscape, food, or booze. If you know someone looking to add permaculture to their lives, but don’t know where to begin, gift them a copy of Edible Landscaping with a Permaculture Twist.
