How many of y'all have checked out Clint Locklear's "Permaculture Realist" project? I've found it to be pretty informative. Honestly, I like Clint. He's a tough old "son of a gun"..... and he can be a little gruff. He's a combat veteran and a professional tapper... not one for "touchy feely", just focuses on what works and what doesn't. Well, I heard him mention Paul on a couple of his podcasts, but I never see him post on the forums. So, I figured I'd kick off a topic. He really tests a lot of Permaculture teneants and reports his successes and failures in east Tennessee. I like it. He did a PDC with Geoff Lawton. Clint, if you see this, I'd like to see your input here!
"Them that don't know him won't like him and them that do sometimes won't know how to take him... he ain't wrong, he's just different and his pride won't let him do the things that make you think he's right"
Seemed like a rambling man to me. Maybe like to meet him in East TN. He thinks we are are foragers. Too polite. We are exploiters. We as permaculturous, or gardeners of course should try to work with nature on the plants we grow for consumption. Of course I also forage in stores too. Maybe I should use the word shop. Look around at how mankind destroys the environment. We cut down all the trees, extract all the oil, etc. Thankfully there are a few of us trying to leave land better than we found it.
