Living Permaculture

Join us every fourth Wednesday of the month for Living Permaculture, KDNK's source for information on how to live a more sustainable life. Permaculture is a design system for ecological and sustainable living, integrating plants, animals, buildings, people and communities. Each month we feature a special guest and topic that is pertinent to the self sufficiency of this valley and the world. Hosts Jerome Osentowski and Stephanie Syson run the Central Rocky Mountain Permaculture Institute a non-profit in Basalt, Colorado.

Oct 27, 2016

Stephanie, Jerome, and guest Eli Bejalia discuss the Korean Natural Farming Method that takes advantage of indigenous microorganisms to repair and rebuild soil. Eli has successfully used this method from sub-tropical Florida to degraded land on the Dry Mesa in Colorado's North Fork Valley.

This month's show, with host Stephanie Syson, is all about autumn - it's effects on gardens and human health.
