For the past couple of months, we’ve been getting our hands dirty sharing stories to do with agriculture and how we can grow food in a way that regenerates our ecosystems. It’s all connected to our latest magazine: Healing the Land, which features some of the great farmers and growers of our time — including Wendell Berry, Charles Massey and Vandana Shiva. This episode of the podcast is with someone of similarly great standing: the co-founder of permaculture, David Holmgren. David is an educator, environmental designer and writer whose latest book is RetroSuburbia — an enormously rich manual full of ideas for creating an abundant home economy.
This edited conversation was produced by our digital editor Lizzie Marton, with music Dennis Liu
