THE MORNING SHOW
Create Your Own Paradise on Earth with Permaculture
If you’re interested in permaculture and sustainability, this is a show for you. Geoff Lawton lives in a permaculture paradise in Australia with only a phone line connecting him to the outside world. He lives in a straw bale house, off the grid using solar and wind power, and grows his food. Geoff covers it all in this interview starting with waste management. He goes into healing the land, using problems to create solutions. He talks about GMO’s and why they will not be strong enough to survive the natural order of things. We’ve done many shows on permaculture, but we’ll put this one way up top. Enjoy!
