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.

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.
