OCTOBER GLOBAL PERMAYOUTH FESTIVAL
Special Guest Matt Powers and his teen son, James
Our special guests for this month are American permaculture teacher, Matt Powers and his son James. Matt has just released a new book all about soil, so we are going to dive head first into the world beneath our feet. James has grown up with permaculture as the basis for his homeschooling – and life! The are both talented musician and will share some music with us too.
