Sean Dembrosky, 32, owns and operates the 'Edible Acres' project just north of Trumansburg NY (www.edibleacres.org). Formally educated in the fine arts, but focused on agriculture for the last decade, Sean has developed a farming system based on permaculture principles and forest farming. Very low tech / no tech approaches to plant propagation, polyculture development, and a focus on long term perennial food and medicine crops has enabled Sean to begin the work of developing a resilient, high calorie out for calorie in food system that requires no external sources of electricity or fuel to function. This episode has been sponsored by Hearst Ranch.
