Dec 16, 2020 | 0 comments

Show Notes

The conversation continues from last week’s episode with Justin Dolan of St Michael’s Permaculture Country Club, in Central Pacific Costa Rica.

Justin mentions a number of the innovations that he’s been experimenting with, including natural building with bamboo, bioremediation, soil health, natural cooling with living rooftops and vines, waste management, and more. 

We've prepared a video for you, showing one of the Country Club's living rooftops in action.  Check it out at https://youtu.be/AFk5NbW08R0

This episode is brought to you by, well, YOU! 

I haven’t built up my audience enough to have attracted sponsors and all that, so even though it’s the holiday season, you get to support the show without my selling you stuff.

Isn’t that great!   So, instead of buying an organic cotton shirt or an online course, maybe you can just buy me a coffee!   

Go to https://ko-fi.com/sharinginsights to drop a few dollars in the bucket and let me know you care. 

If you enjoy the podcast, please consider leaving a short review on Apple podcasts or wherever you listen.

It takes less than a minute, and it really makes a difference in helping to spread the word about our mission to others looking to improve their own projects.

Special thanks to Peter Mukuru for editing this episode!
