Max starts his introduction with a little game demonstrating the effects of group energy. He continues to tell a touching story of how his miraculous survival from a head on collision ultimately brought him to learn about permaculture, which contained much practical wisdom for sustainable living.
Climate and biogeography are the foundation to understanding what plants and animals will thrive in your garden. Max introduces basics of ecological zones, and how to modify weather on both a large scale and a local, micro scale.
