A Guided Tour Through Sepp Holzer’s Permaculture

If you’re a permaculture practitioner, you may know Paul Wheaton as the genius and webmaster behind the forums at permies.com—a fantastic resource if you’ve never checked them out. In the forums you can ask questions of other permaculture fans, troubleshoot your garden or fish pond, and learn about new techniques.

Over recent months Paul has been leading listeners of his podcast through our recently published book, Sepp Holzer’s Permaculture.

Sepp Holzer is a farmer, author and international consultant for natural agriculture. His farm, high in the mountains of Austria, now spans over 45 hectares of forest gardens, including 70 ponds, and is said to be the most consistent example of permaculture worldwide.

Sepp Holzer’s Permaculture covers every aspect of Holzer’s farming methods—including practical details for planning and cultivation, and how to make a decent living from the land.

Paul’s podcasts go through nearly everything Sepp’s book has to offer. You can follow along by perusing the list of podcasts here.

To get you hooked, here are the podcasts on the Preface and Chapter One.

Thanks, Paul!

No longer restricted to the elite segments of society, the farm-to-table movement now reaches a wide spectrum of Americans from hospital and office cafeterias to elementary schools and fast-casual restaurants.
