OBERLIN, OH – Darren Doherty | Permaculture | Cold Climate Design

November 16, 2009

Below is an audio recording of Darren Doherty speaking about Permaculture and Cold Climate Design. This recording was taken at a Permaculture Design Course in Oberlin, OH.

(Note: this is a long recording, and will take a minute to load: please be patient. Also, some recordings do not play well on built-in computer speakers; and would require headphones or a strong set of speakers attached to your computer.)
