The Ground on Which We Grow

In this episode of the MYD Earth Show we are chatting to the Deputy Director in the Department of Agriculture at the Namibia University of Science and Technology, Dr. Ibo Zimmermann, about Permaculutre.

Soil is the foundation for a healthy environment, the material your plants grow from, soil is alive. Permaculture is a system of agricultural that uses the patterns observed in natural ecosystems, and the healthy use of soil is one critical component of this system. Here Dr. Zimmermann explains projects in Namibia that take these considerations into account and shares the success of approaching Agriculture from this perspective.
