Diego Footer is the founder and CEO of the Permaculture Voices Conference and Podcast where his goal is to go out and motivate and inspire people to push the limits, do great work, and live the life that they want to live through permaculture principles.
I met Diego though Paul Wheaton a bit over a year ago when he first came up with the concept for the Permaculture Voices conference. The first conference was an amazing success, especially since it was the first event Diego had ever done.
He is now getting ready for the second conference, PV2 and joins us today to discuss that along with his podcast. We also discuss in depth what it takes to build a business, any business if you want to be successful. We dig deep into many of the lessons he has learned interviewing permaculturists who have started successful and profitable businesses over the past year.

Bob Wells Plant of the Week – The Mayhaw Tree – Adaptable from zone 6 to zone 9 The Mayhaw tree is a small native fruit tree. This showy tree is primarily found in bottom land and along the river’s edge. It is known for its love of water but will grow well in your yard or home garden, as well.
The Mayhaw produces best in partial to full sun locations and is self-fertile. The small cranberry-like fruits are highly prized for making the best jellies, preserves, and syrups. Eaten fresh, it tastes like a crabapple. Mayhaw jelly has been a delicacy in the southeast for generations and a Mayhaw tree will make a fine addition to your landscape.
Plant your Mayhaw tree in a prominent spot to show off its beautiful pure white early blooms and attractive red berries that appear in May. Bob Wells Nursery specializes in anything edible: fruit trees, berry plants, nut trees, as well as the hard to find specialty trees. Find them at BobWellsNursery.com
Also remember we have an expert council you can address your calls to. If you do this you should email me right after your call at jack at thesurvivalpodcast.com with expert council call in the subject line.
