David on Permaculture Podcast with Scott Mann

Recently David was interviewd by Scott Mann for the Permaculture Podcast. Scott covered some of the subjects David is rarely asked these days including, “how did David come up with Permaculture in the first place?” David also was asked to elaborate on his work over the years through each of three waves of environmentalism he identifies: the limits of resources in the 1970s, the limits of what we can put into the environment during the 1980s and 90s, and the convergence of these two ideas over the last decade or so.

You can listen to the podcast at David Holmgren on Permaculture: an interview on the Permaculture Podcast.
