Paititi InstituteThis episode features Permaculturalist Faan Rossouw who studied under Geoff Lawton recently in Australia. We spoke while Faan was in Peru awaiting travel to Quebec to study at McGill University. We speak at length about the intersection of Ecology, Permaculture and Shamanic medicines.

The Paititi Institute for the Preservation of the Amazon Rainforest & Indigenous Culture is a Peruvian based non-profit organization dedicated to supporting a harmonious and abundant life through the integration of ancient wisdom into modern practical resolution of today’s challenges. The institute is currently based on 100 acres in the Maynas Province of the Loreto Region of Peru in the rainforest between the city of Iquitos and the village of Nauta, and is the base for our cornerstone projects — Natural Medicine Center, Institute for Indigenous Studies and Permaculture Education Center.

Creighton and I speak about his stay at the Bullock Brothers farm in the San Juan islands, his work on a recently installed Climate Battery Greenhouse in Morrison, Colorado, and a fantastic highway restoration project that was featured in Permaculture Activist. This is Orcas Island in the San Juan Islands of Washington State.

The audio quality of my microphone in this interview is very bad, and I apologize about that. Creighton's is actually pretty good, so hopefully that makes up for it. I promise to work hard to improve the quality on the next podcast. In any case, enjoy the show!
