OBERLIN, OH – Darren Doherty | Permaculture | Lawn Care | Forest Management

December 7, 2009

Note: This recording is going to require a strong sound system or a pair of headphones to listen to. The sound will be too weak for computer speakers. Sorry about this, and we’ll try to fix it for the archives.

Below is an audio recording of Darren Doherty speaking about Permaculture and its relationship to forest management, lawn care and urban planning. 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.)
