Permaculture is sweeping the world, not just in developed countries, but in Cambodia, Vietnam, the Pacific Islands and Africa.

Albert Bates is an internationally recognized permaculture teacher, much in demand. He's been living at the intentional community "The Farm" for decades. Bates is author of many books. Albert addresses the solutions to climate change found in permaculture, and especially in biochar and recapturing carbon to the soil.

Rob Hopkins is famous as co-founder of the Transition Towns movement. Starting in Totnes UK, Transition Towns have popped up in over a hundred countries around the world, including in the United States. Rob talks about the duality of despair and optimism that fuels him.

Rosemary Morrow learned permaculture in Australia (where it began) in the early 1980's. She's since spoken and taught it all over the world. Her stories of how Vietnam, after the war, and Cambodia, after Pol Pot, rapidly adopted permaculture at a government level are inspiring.

Rosemary talks about where permaculture needs to go to aid a world in trouble. This talk was lightly edited for radio time, by Alex Smith.
