S2/E2: Interview with Renowned Permaculture Guru Paul Wheaton

ZAHP! The Zootown Affordable Housing Podcast

Dear Listeners, I hold close to heart the notion that truly affordable/sustainable living is tied into local, regenerative food production.  Paul Wheaton is a widely known permaculture gardener, podcaster, writer, experimenter, and information spreader.  He has authored a book titled:  Building a Better World in Your Backyard - Instead of Being Angry at Badguys.  He is also over 500 episodes into his podcast, called Homesteading and Permaculture, and you can find all the information you desire about Paul Wheaton and his work by visiting his website, permies.com.  Paul owns land outside Missoula area where he conducts experiments with net zero living and ways to do things differently from the conventional norm.  He hosts a variety of learning opportunities on his land that are both short term and/or long term in nature.  Some folks have visited him to learn more and ended up staying to pursue their own adventures/experimentation with growing food sustainably and living more in harmony on the land with Mother Nature.    Paul has been pursuing his passion for permaculture for 20 years now, and we are extremely fortunate in Missoula to have such an amazing resource living so close to our town.  --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/zahp-the-zootown-affordable-housing-podcast/message

Are you looking for an easy step by step plan of action on how to contribute to living green as a conscious global citizen? How about starting this journey right in your backyard?Building A Better World In Your Backyard by Paul Wheaton and Shawn Klassen-Koop is a wonderful book about making a huge, positive, global difference from your own home! They have prioritized comfort over sacrifice while saving thousands of dollars as they explore dozens of solutions and their impacts on carbon footprint, petroleum footprint, toxic footprint, and other environmental issues.According to Paul and Shawn, if 20% of the population implemented half the solutions in their book, it would solve the biggest global problems. All without writing to politicians, joining protests, signing petitions, or being angry at the people causing the issues.Paul Wheaton is passionate about permaculture. He has made over 177 hours of video of a full Permaculture Design Course and Appropriate Technology Course, and permaculture playing cards.Before this, Paul created hundreds of podcasts, YouTube videos, and articles about permaculture.

Paul Wheaton Pt. I: Home Heating Solutions

Sea Change Radio

Many of us are spending a whole lot more time at home these days, and are consequently knee-deep in a bunch of home improvement projects. A great area for home improvement that may not be on your mind in July, but will surely be a pressing concern in a few months when those utility bills begin to rise, is heating. This week on Sea Change Radio, the first half of our discussion with author and sustainability expert Paul Wheaton about his new book, Building A Better World In Your Backyard. He outlines some innovative ideas on home efficiency, including warming up our bodies rather than the air in our homes, and the advantages of using a rocket mass heater. We also touch upon next week’s topic, gardening and permaculture. The post Paul Wheaton Pt. I: Home Heating Solutions appeared first on Sea Change Radio.

Building a Better World in Your Backyard with Paul Wheaton

Dr Julie Show : All Things Connected

The list of global problems is massive and overwhelming. When confronted with such significant problems, our first instinct is to tell the bad guys to stop being bad. Paul Wheaton believes the reason we see so many people angry is because they genuinely care. But they seem to get stuck at being angry. He says that if you spend a tiny fraction of that time doing the things mentioned in Building a Better World in Your Backyard, your global positive impact will be a thousand times greater.
