Come listen and learn about Michael's adventure in rural latin america and what he learned from some Mayan tribes.  He tells us how he learned they managed to meet all of their needs without help from the outside.  Here is a bit of what we can learn in this podcast:

  • What the word Regenerative means
  • How design can take natural healthy ecosystems and design for human needs as well as life around us.
  • Agro-ecology and what that means
  • What is “alley-cropping”
  • Stacking functions and “how you can get the most bang for your buck” and what it might look like.
  • Herb Spirals description and why it is so useful in gardens of any size.
  • Harvesting water for raised bed gardens through swales.
  • Growing edible mushrooms
    and more
