Mike Feingold’s Permaculture Allotment

Mike Feingold, takes you round 'planet zog' his allotment. Mike is one of the tutors on the Permaculture Design Course that I've recently completed in Bristol. I'm now distressing my very own boiler suit so I can be just like Mike.

Mike has spent most of his life travelling around the world learning about permaculture and working with local communities in the middle and far east. My notebook is full of little bits of advice and ideas that he’s implemented.

This is the first video I’ve uploaded to a new youtube account, EmbodyBruce. You can see the original larger by clicking here.

You’ve actually found the person that shot the film. You’ll find Mike in Bristol, UK. He’s well known among permaculture folk there.

Hello Bruce, great video post on YouTube. I first saw Mike giving a talk on Permaculture at Shambala festival - great character!
I would like to contact Mike for 2 reasons:
1) I was given his name by Geoff Lawton when I was studying under him on his Project Aid Worker course. I am really interested in the work Mike has done abroad, and would really like to plug into this myself.
2) I am currently volunteering with a charity in Bristol. I am working with teenagers to help them design and build their school garden. Any input or links you or Mike might have to help would be great. The next priority task is to build a cob oven. We also plan to plant vegies, fruit trees and native wetland plants. A recycled sculpture is on the agenda. This is all a bit ambitious with just myself, so I wonder whether PermaBlitz exists here? And should you have any links for materials and seeds that would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
Best wishes,


Elspeth

I've walked across the border a few times. Both camps might be a little surprised to know that nature doesn't reflect one. #Scotland

But the UK cried, "Oh, please don't go – we'll eat you up – we love you so!" And Alex said, "No!". And the UK roared their terrible roars ..

@dimplesthankiya totally agree. Worked with lots of folk who didn't get that quite right.

@tweenders have some @VIVOBAREFOOT neo trails which are fine so I might stop looking for anything else and try them on the road later today.
