This week Grant Schultz will be joining us to talk about all different kinds of topics regarding large scale/farm scale permaculture. He's answering questions here in the large farm forum, but he has extensive knowledge about raising pigs and propagating trees as well. So feel free to pick his brain about those areas as well.

There is one ticket to his awesome upcoming workshop, Farmscale Permaculture up for grabs.

Grant will be stopping by on the forum over the next few days answering questions and joining in discussions.

From now through this Friday, any posts in this forum, ie the large farm forum, could be selected to win.

To win, you must use a name that follows our naming policy and you must have your email set up in Paul's Daily-ish email.

The winner will be notified by email and must respond within 24 hours.

Posts in this thread won't count, but please feel free to say hi to Grant and make him feel welcome!

Hello Permies.

Hello Grant. Thanks for taking the time. I have my eyes set on your workshop for sometime now but you are kind of far away from Brazil.
Who knows, there might be a chance of paying only for the air ticket.... finger crossed.

Hello Matt. Always nice to see PDC colleagues, specially ones with such a fine work.

Hi Grant!
I live in France and am starting a farm scale pig (and possibly chickens, later) farm. We have our first batch of pigs that should be of age by Jan.
At the moment I'm doing some thinking and researching into what seeds to sow behind them as they rotate. Eventually I'd like to control the pasture and possibly grow pasture as winter feed as well.
I'm a bit stuck as my first sowing will come in mid late October. I was thinking a mix of mustard, alfalfa, some grass, and, ??
Anyway, I'm glad you are joining us!

I don't quite know what your climate is like where you are at in France, but rutabaga, turnip, daikon, kale, etc are great fall-seeded crops that are reasonably cold-hardy and put on good growth for pig self-harvesting into winter.

Welcome Grant. Thanks for taking the time to do this. Your farm is certainly an inspiration for many of us who want to want to manage production landscapes regeneratively. And thanks for giving away a ticket. That's super generous!

Thanks Cass for lining these things up. Questions often come up when I'm standing around in a pasture listening to podcasts with these guys and gals. You've made it really easy to get some really good answers to some of those.

So yes, this is me being WAY late on posting this video, because I shot it in March, at Permaculture Voices... But it's still Grant being awesome so I figured I'd post it anyways in honor of him visiting us on the forums this week.

Also, zach doing the permies tag line at the end is adorable.

Also, I know you can barely see them, but the audio is fine. And isn't that sunset just beautiful?
