A permaculture principle on Qantas flight

fvssWe are just informed that “the Edge” from Permaculture, the album is included in the playlist of one of the Qantas premier inflight entertainment channels “Global Beat”.
That’s right, the song inspired by David Holmgren’s permaculture principles, penned and performed by Charlie Mgee and co., now an integral part in our Permaculture teaching kit, will now be heard loud and clear, thousands of feet up there, on the Australia’s national flag carrier. How exciting is that! Almost good enough to choose Qantas, if we must fly. At least between September and November when the show’s host, Annette Shun Wah spins the song. Looking at her playlist, Charlie has got a good company with the likes of Bob Brozman and Mandawuy Yunupingu. Onya Charlie, and thanks Annette.
