Permaculture at a Tipping Point

Geoff Lawton talks about what it will take to get permaculture to the tipping point where it becomes the norm, not the weirdo fringe - like 'global warming' once was, before the masses start to adopt it.

Farm machinery and chemical companies have also spent millions of dollars since WWII convincing farmers to use their products. Getting their style of farming to be termed 'conventional' was a serious achievement. Now, some insurance plans and lenders require farmers to follow conventional industrial agricultural (chemical-based) methods.
