Over 2 episodes, Maddy talks with Peter Donegan about permaculture. What is it ? How does one do a little, on their balcony, small back garden in their town or in their estate. As important, we chat what one should not do, the magazine she co-founded and edits, the books she has written and published and in true Peter style (?) things go a little off the beaten path and come back again.
