Permaculture: A Rhymer’s Manual – David doesn’t cringe

Formidable Vegetable Sound System“He gave me the best response ever… He got on the blower and said ‘It’s great. I listened to the whole thing…and I didn’t cringe once.'”

Apparently that is how David Holmgren responded upon listening to the album, inspired by and named after the concept he jointly developed some three decades ago, according to the recent ABC radio piece. You can sample some of the Charlie Mgee‘s Formidable Vegetable Sounds System’s debut album “Permaculture: a Rhymer’s Manual” played live at the launch in Melbourne in April.


David will be there not only to give a test drive to his newly acquired dancing shoes to serious ukelele music, but also to say a few words about what could well be the first ever permaculture “concept” album.

When: 6pm Saturday April 6. Where: CERES Environmental Park Cost: (recommended donation $15) BYO drinks and snacks

The album is now available through the HD shop. Here’s footage of Formidable Vegetable Sound System in full flight at the Eclipse 2012 Festival in Cairns .
