It is always and extreme pleasure to have Geoff Lawton on the show. Geoff is who I received my PDC certification from, he is also my biggest mentor. It is my firm belief that like attracts like. The common bond Geoff and I share isn’t really permaculture it is a fundamental desire to help others and to do so mostly by teaching.
Today I had planned to discuss a lot of technical questions with Geoff, how do you ____ etc. But quickly we moved into a much more high level discussion.
How would Geoff design a solution for the entire state of California for drought proofing. What is the 3rd ethic really all about, why should we not politicize it?
Why are live stock essential to repair the damage to our eco systems? Why are humans necessary to repair the same damage? Today we look at not our own individual survival but the survival of our ecosystems and way of life.

Bob Wells Nursery “Plant Of The Week”
Chinquapin Nut Tree It is adaptable from zone 5 to zone 9.
The Chinquapin is a sub-species of the Chestnut family. It grows as a small tree or bush. Chinquapins are delicious eaten right out of the burr in the fall. Chinquapins have a single nut in the burr, unlike chestnuts that have nut divisions.
They are understory trees that grow in our native forests. However, heavy logging throughout the U.S has made finding native chinquapins harder than ever. The chinquapin tree is excellent for fresh eating, roasting, or for wildlife food.
Bob Wells specializes in edible landscape, including: Fruit Trees, Berry Plants, Nut Trees, as well as the hard to find Specialty Fruit Trees. Find this plant and more at BobWellsNursery.com
