The 2012 Symphonies in Seed and Soil Permaculture Tour is over. During this tour, Paul Wheaton, Jocelyn Campbell, Eivind Bjørkavåg, and Geoff Badenoch visited amazing permaculture sites in the Western United States and met many people. In this podcast, Paul, Jocelyn and Eivind try to remember all the different things that they saw that has not already been covered in previous podcasts.<!–more–>

They talk about Glenn Kangiser’s cabin, THE most documented Oehler structure (Podcast 215). They mention about the multiple mechanical issues they had with the land whale, then talk about next year’s tour. Eivind expresses how much better it is to actually visit the different places than to watch the YouTube videos or listen to the podcasts.

Paul, Jocelyn, and Eivind talk about the Santa Barbara portion where they visited with Art Ludwig and where Paul did a presentation. Then they talk about Bill Schnieders (Podcast 162).

They recall the Los Angeles portion where they checked out the Edendale Farm, an urban permaculture site with Welsh Harlequin ducks, Muscovy ducks, Black Soldier Fly larvae breeding ground next to red wigglers, double chamber cob oven, a porta potty converted in a 5 gallon buckets composting toilet, aquaponics, a gorgeous tipi and much more.

In the San Diego area they visited Paul and Molly Varese’s farm, a conventional farm growing rare fruits, and Joey Delia’s permaculture farm.

Lastly Paul goes into details about how to catch or remove cold air.

Note: Podcast 217 and 218 are the Art Ludwig ones. Podcast 216 is…well… the mystery podcast!
