Paul will be beamed over to Skype land for a chat this Tuesday, July 17th.

I am calling all Plotskateers, Pie lovers, Pod People and Permies to see if there are good questions out there for Paul to round out the interview.

Generally pod cast listeners would likely be the most informed and can come up with some great questions for Paul, Lord of the Jungle.

Please no one ask him about stuff that he talks about all the time.

Extra credit will be awarded to anyone who can come up with questions that make Paul laugh out loud.

Thank you,

Wilson

Do you know Hagrid?

How tall are you?

What's your favourite non-permie website?

You could ask him to define what he thinks are the characteristics that differentiate a philosophical permaculture adopter from an ardent big black-book landscape trotting designer.
I think we don't hear enough about the different depths permaculture can take people in so many ways in their lives. I think allot of people could find themselves and see where they fit in by hearing about the different character traits that permaculture is inclusive of.

Saybian,

That is truly a great question! You managed to put into words something that has always been in my head.

wondering what permie people really do when they get a horrible invasion of squash bugs, pick, squash, or other means. Wondering if any permies use soap on them?

Once people are convinced permaculture is awesome, what do you advocate people do with leftover bottles of toxic lawn weed sprays and such? If I throw it in the trash it will wind up back in the soil, if I burn it, it will be in the air, if I give it away to someone I can not convince to go organic, I am enabling putting more poison into the soil/water table but at the same time am I preventing more money entering the chemical companies pockets?

This is my dilemma.
