Interview With Darrell Frey Author of Bioshelter Market Garden and The Food Forest Handbook

Darrell and Rob talk about embodied energy in food, and how Permaculture elements like perennial forest gardens and passive solar greenhouses solve the issue of the incredible embodied energy of our industrial food system. #permaculture #foodforest #Passivesolargreenhouse #bioshelter #greenhouse Get the coupon code for these books https://vergepermaculture.ca/books/ The Food Forest Handbook:https://bit.ly/2RnDLYr The Oil We Eat Narrated by Rob Avis: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bcg... Darrell has been a permaculture consultant and teacher since 1987. He earned a BA in Sustainable Community Development from Prescott College and holds Diplomas of Permaculture Site Design, and Permaculture Education from The Permaculture Institute of North America (PINA). He is a lifelong learner with a strong background in horticulture, natural sciences, regenerative systems and permaculture design. He has extensive practical experience in small business management, homesteading, construction and project management. Darrell’s permaculture journey began after reading an interview of Bill Mollison in Mother Earth News Magazine # 63 in November of 1980, and subsequently reading Permaculture One and Permaculture Two. In 1982 Darrell attended a weekend Permaculture workshop at Stonyfield Farm in New Hampshire, where he asked Bill how to bring permaculture to Western Pennsylvania. Bill encouraged Darrell to pursue his ideas to develop what became Three Sisters Farm and Bioshelter. After six years of intensive self guided study of permaculture, Darrell completed a permaculture design certification course in 1986.
