Hi everyone, id like to give a shout out to a amazing permaculturist and nursery man Sean of Edible Acres. Sean and his partner Sasha run a permaculture nursery in NY state and are among the nicest of people. Any time ive asked questions about plants water works ..they are more then obliged to awnser me back even though they are probably incredibly busy. They grow incredibly usefull plants that range in a number of uses from medicinal to edible only using permaculture methods they have taken a site and turned into paradise. Not only are the plants robust and healthy but the small microswales and hand dug yes people HAND DUG ponds are created with the most critical thought. I would encourage any people out there to check out there channel on youtube Edible Acres if any of this fascinates you.. as well as there nursery site. I am truly a fan and it has inspired me to become more involved with permaculture and the people in it. check it out!

I'd also love to add, that ordering plants from Edible Acres was simple.

The plants thrived. I bought 3 raspberry plants and they produced fruit the same growing season that I ordered them.

And the packaging they arrived in was merrily customized, (and probably recycled?)

His nursery work, in my experience, is as phenomenal as his videos.

I really like how their projects use minimal store bought materials, are built mostly by hand, and are so in tune with nature. A permaculture example for all.

I give this youtube channel 9 out of 10 acorns.
I enjoy each video uploaded, always new applications to learn and very informative. It is very nice to see smaller and practical applications of permaculture principles. I already knew about Karl Hammer and his composting operation, but I didn't think that I can scale it down and make it work at the same time. I knew about continuously fed compost systems, like you build up a new pile while the previous pile is moved the next step and so on. But I have never seen such a smooth operation with chickens and without heavy machinery. It is like "chicken-fall composting" or "compostfall" (from waterfall). I did came across to many documents, videos and etc about propagating plants, but it was one of his videos I said to myself "well it seems quite doable, sure I can do that".
This is a very inspiring youtube channel.
The only reason it is not 10/10 but 9/10 is lack of video editing. Also an intro could have made a huge difference.

Thanks a lot Sean!

I give this YouTube channel 10 out of 10 acorns.  Sean does a great job of presenting different permaculture principles and solutions that work for his site.  The videos are about the right length and he puts up a good number.  He doesn't do the click bait crap and he doesn't have any sponsors so the info is trustworthy.

I give this YouTube Channel 10 out of 10 acorns. I really enjoy all Sean's videos! He's style really fits with my own, I love how low cost his ideas and systems are, and how uncomplicated he makes things seem. So many times when I've watch one of his videos I think "I bet I could do that too!". As a beginner in permaculture I really appreciate that. I've particularly enjoyed his videos on the evolving system he has been working on to grow chicken feed in the chicken pen. His Tree Guild videos were really interesting too!

Edited; typo.
