Today’s guest is Perrine Hervé-Gruyer author, along with her husband Charles, of Miraculous Abundance: One Quarter Acre, Two French Farmers and Enough Food to Feed the World.
During the conversation time talk about international permaculture and the French permaculture movement; what books, materials, and classes are available in that region folks interested in getting involved in Permaculture, including what staples of the literature have and have not been translated so far; and how that selection of books leads to the search for climate analogues and the authors writing for that region of the world.
Along the way, Perrine shares what it’s been like to transition transition to a life of farming, finding permaculture, and with it a way to move forward as a farmer. Together she and Charles are raising their family and food together, while spreading permaculture throughout France and, with the publication of this book, the world.
If you’d like to learn more about their farm, read this case study by François Léger and Sacha Guégan, that details the operations at Bec Hellouin, and the results the
Hervé-Gruyer’s are receiving.
Summer to Fall Fundraiser
We only have $1,610 left to reach the goal of $4,500 by September 30. Achieving this milestone in fundraising allows me to comfortably continue production of the show through 2017, while also bringing on a team, including a business manager, writers, graphic designer, and others, to refine, improve, and expand this work.
