Paul Wheaton, the bad boy of Permaculture, was proclaimed the Duke of Permaculture by Geoff Lawton in 2012. He is the creator of two on-line communities. One is about Permaculture, permies.com, and one is about software engineering, CodeRanch.com. Paul is bonkers about permaculture.
A few years ago he set about turning over 100 acres of Montana mountain land into a true permaculture community. Building housing in a form he calls a WOFATI and experimenting with hundreds of options for sustainable living off the grid.
Central to this has been heating through brutally cold Montana winters. To do this Paul has amped up research and work on rocket mass heaters to levels never seen before. He joins us today to discuss rocket mass heater technology and how it can be used by anyone for sustainable heating. You can learn more about Paul and all his exploits at Permies.com
