Geoff Lawton on People, Place & Sustainability

Geoff Lawton discusses the value of people power, the importance of our connection to place and offers a brilliant definition of sustainablility.
Geoff is one of the World's Leading Permaculture Specialists and Community Change Educators.
In 2010, ecological actor Paul B Bishop filmed a series of interviews as Geoff & team prepared and delivered a community friendly vision and landscape design for The Runnymede/Redland Commons Project.
The Runnymede Project is in the process of becoming a community led sustainability education centre situated on a disused chicken factory farm in Redland City, South East Queensland.

Thank you for the videos Paul.

Just by-the-by, Geoff looks and sounds like an earthy version of Hugh Grant.

Vetiver grass helps to stabilise soil and protects it against erosion.  It can protect against pests and weeds. Vetiver is also used as animal feed. (Wiki.)
