Join us for this great talk and get inspired about the tremendous possibilities of turning your back yard, garden or farm into an economically-environmentally-socially sustainable operation - for the sake of your family, your community and the Earth.
In this talk, Paul Wheaton will dispell the myth that sustainable farming is less economic that conventional farming. We'll cover at least two-dozen ways to make money from having a rich diversity of sustainable farming. We'll start off with how the permaculture model compares to conventional and organic farming, from core-ethics to applicable techniques.
As a permaculturist following in the footsteps of Bill Mollison, Sep Holzer, and Fukuoka, Paul Wheaton will present strategies and techniques to convert your back yard or farm into a financially-sound operation. Different strategies will be covered, such as holistic animal management, finding untapped markets & cash crops, attracting volunteers, offering internships and other opportunities to teach others as they work on your land and increase your productivity.
Permaculture techniques enable you to limit or eliminate many of your expenses, while offering a market niche for selling a diversity of produce, coppice, weeds, and other products to dramatically increase your profit margin.
