Did Sepp really say this? "There are no pest plants, no vermin and no bad locations, but only incapable people who instead of understanding our creation and nature, fight against it." If someone here can give me a reference, I'd really appreciate that. I like this. I've seen it in the context of Sepp, but can't say for sure he said it. Can anyone tell me who said this, and give me a reference to the book or wherever this appeared?

I have heard him say several variations of exactly those words on a few occasions, so while I can't give a book reference, that is totally Sepp. I think Zach Wiess, Javan Bernakavitch, or Andrea Holker, or many of his students could easily corroborate.

Thanks a lot. I think you're right ... I think I've seen somewhere that it's from a video of his

That quote is from "Sepp Holzer Permaculture"
