26: Masanobu Fukuoka - 95th percentile for rice yield per acre with zero till. Crushing the myth that organic practices cannot feed the world. Plus, from that exact same acreage, he pulls off a crop of winter barley.
I've been flip flopping between computers and I was trying a mac that didn't have a vga port. So I thought it could work out to put this in a thread and then scroll through it on another computer at the event.
I was asked to give a 30 minute presentation on permaculture tinkering. There would be other presenters doing the same. So I thought it would be a hoot to tantalize the taste buds with 30 tinkers in 30 minutes.
It took me about an hour to slap this presentation together.
Ok, I THINK this is where your podcasts say to post ideas. I could have this wrong a little, but I'm new. Have you ever heard of or seen the DVD set "Free Food and Medicine with Markus Rothkranz?"
I came across it recently, and you want to talk about BEYOND organic, BEYOND sustainable-AMAZING!!
Now the first video will make you feel like you accidently bought into the infomercial-haha! But keep watching you get in to the good knowledgy stuff not long after.
I guedd I got the most excited starting on the second DVD because THAT'S WHERE I WANT TO BE!
I actually came across these DVDs before I did your site. But really I think it was these DVDs that led me to become more serious and expand more of my mind about where I'm going with this permaculture thing.
Now granted I'm at ground 0 almost, I started an organic little tiny garden last year, and looking up fixing things organically I found permaculture and now I'm SOLD!!
Anyhoo, I guess I could have done some more searching on your site before going into all of this and asking about it, but I'd REALLY like to know what you think about this guy and these people who are practising all of this to the extreme they are.
