Greg Watson and John Todd in Conversation

The Schumacher Lectures

John and Nancy Todd and a group of scientist friends established the New Alchemy Institute on a twelve-acre site in Falmouth, Massachusetts. Greg Watson joined the staff in 1980. He was inspired to apply New Alchemy's strategies and solutions to urban areas. He and John Todd have remained life-long friends making it a point to lunch together each week whenever possible.New Alchemy influenced a generation who “moved back to the land” with the vision of living more sustainably. Organic gardening, aquaculture, bioshelters, plant-filtered waste-water treatment, compost toilets, renewable energy systems were all modeled, and the designs shared, by New Alchemy. Fritz Schumacher and Buckminster Fuller were among those who made pilgrimages to witness and support the work done there.Both Todd and Watson moved on to other projects, but the principles and systems thinking described in New Alchemy’s mission statement continue to direct their work as it evolves to solve emerging problems of the day.Greg Watson is Director of Policy and Systems Design at the Schumacher Center for a New Economics. His work currently focuses on community food systems and the dynamics between local and geo-economic systems.Watson has spent nearly 40 years learning to understand systems thinking as inspired by Buckminster Fuller and to apply that understanding to achieve a just and sustainable world.John Todd has been a pioneer in the field of ecological design and engineering for nearly five decades. He is the founder and president of John Todd Ecological Design. Dr. Todd has degrees in agriculture, parasitology and tropical medicine from McGill University, Montreal, and a doctorate in fisheries and ethology from the University of Michigan. He is professor emeritus and distinguished lecturer at University of Vermont’s Rubenstein School and a fellow of the Gund Institute for Ecological Economics at UVM. He is also the founder and president of Ocean Arks International, a non-profit research and education organization; and co-founder of New Alchemy Institute, a research center that has done pioneering investigation into organic agriculture, aquaculture and bioshelters.

Greg Watson - Season 02 Episode 10 (The Hot Seat)

The Hot Seat

Today we talk to Greg Waston. Greg is based in Palmerston North New Zealand, holds a strong presence within the industry and 22 years ago entered into the industry with his father and brother.In our interview Greg talks how not delegating ended up in overpaying the tax man 75k over 2 years and how that mistake meant they couldn’t pay themselves, why it’s critical to have a genuine passion that moves you to be more than a ‘salesperson’, why 65% of all properties in New Zealand are self managed and how NZ PM’s are using that as an opportunity to grow their rent roles.One of the main highlights in Greg’s interview is how Greg is so raw with his answers. He shares his successes and at the same time shares failures that have helped him along on his journey. And I think this is what makes this such an authentic interview, especially as you can see how Greg’s business is continuing to grow and flourish yet you know he has had challenges along the to get there.
