The podcast starts with Paul asking if Geoff Lawton is a hippie. They talk about the PRI certified instructors and whether the holding hand and singing sound is part of a PDC. Geoff’s opinion is that if a PDC will include a metaphysical portion, it should be advertised at such. They talk about why some people are moving away from the term permaculture.
They talk briefly about Geoff’s next online PDC and the one he will be part of in California after Permaculture Voices.
They move on to talk about some techniques for greening the desert. Paul then asks Geoff some listener questions such as ways to mitigate salt in soils, challenges with the project in Jordan and some of the best tactics to spread permaculture.
However, there was something I didn't catch, at 1:09:59 Geoff gives his brief elevator speech, and says something like "Permaculture is a system design that provides all the needs of humanity in a way that benefits the environment." Any of you permies that got this part exactly?
edit: speach is speech and Permaculure is Permaculture. FYI.
