Really excellent podcast

I love listening to this while I potter around my fruit and vegetable garden in the Australian suburbs. Lots of fascinating and inspiring stories and practical advice - great work Diego!

High quality podcast

Diego and his guests are dedicated to sharing practical knowledge pertaining to productive, regenerative agriculture. Fresh and far removed from the annoying activist types that think they represent the permaculture movement, Diego and his sphere of influencers deliver a very relevant message to those interested in securing clean and nutritious food supplies for themselves, their communities and their respective nations. Inspiring stuff.

Inspiration for solo entrepreneurs interested in quality of life

You don’t need to be a farmer to love the Permaculture Voices podcasts – we all eat food. Diego and his guests inspire realistic actions for change, especially for self-employed business owners or those aspiring to be. My work includes the arts and built environment design, and this podcast has opened my eyes to a way of living and doing business that restores balance. Diego is generous, allows his guests to open up naturally, and ‘does the work’ to provide great takeaways on the lessons behind a wide variety of topics.
