Great Escape Podcast is an audio version of the blog posts from Great Escape Farms, Specializing in Unique Edible Plants, Permaculture Gardens, and Homesteading. The blog posts can be viewed at GreatEscapeFarms.com.  This episode is part 3 of a 3 part series on permaculture.  Last week I did a presentation on Introduction to permaculture for the Berkley Spring, WV Seventh Day Adventist church and I recorded that presentation.  I have broken that presentation into 3 half hour sessions that I will be playing over a three-day period for you.

Part 3 of the series delves a little deeper into some of the methods of design used in permaculture with regard to agriculture.  Part 1, which is podcast episode 34, is an introduction of myself and some of the issues in current agriculture and why it is not sustainable.  Part 2, which is podcast episode 35, is an overview of permaculture as a design science and gives you some aspects of methods of design.

During this segment of the presentation I state that autumn olive fruit ripens in June and you can cut it back after it fruits.  It actually ripens in early fall and actually tastes better after a frost.  I was thinking of Goumi, which does ripen earlier in the season.

Because this was recorded in a large group environment, there is a good bit of background noise.  I apologize for that in advance.
