This 1 hour and 41 minute video is an interview with Diego Footer (founder of Permaculture Voices) called "15 Lessons Learned from Diving Headlong into a Permaculture Based Homestead." The interview was a part of the Eat Your Dirt Summit put on by Amanda Smith from Solace Lessons.

This interview covers:

  • Know your context
  • 1/2 acre is a LOT of land
  • Underestimate available time
  • Start with the basics
  • Think ahead 1, 3, 5, 10 years
  • Observe the site
  • Respect seasonality
  • Establish water and access first
  • Start at your backdoor
  • Build, Buy, Bring in soil
  • How little can you do?
  • Don’t box in or cut short
  • Start simple and low tech
  • Beware of Eco-Hipsters and their wares
  • Massive amounts of surplus are available locally

  • $10.00
