KDNK Programs: 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.
