If the landowner wants to get the most out of his land, he has to flip the modern equation around 180 degrees… from how do I get people to do this for me to what can I do to empower people for themselves.
Entrepreur and Found of The Survival Podcast
In 2008 Jack Spirko founded The Survival Podcast where he coined the term modern survivalism, a philosophy based on 12 tenets that lead to self-sufficiency, self-reliance, independence and personal liberty. From the very beginning he taught that producing your own food and supporting local agriculture were critical to insuring your personal independence. During the countless hours of research that went into the production of his daily podcast he discovered the threat represented by industrial agriculture and GMOs.
Jack has now been a student, practitioner and teacher of Permaculture Design and sustainable agriculture for 5 years.
Today Jack is actively engaged in spreading the message of permaculture to his audience of more than 75,000 daily listeners. He has had the good fortune to interview and work with well-known permaculturists and sustainable food advocates such as Geoff Lawton, Paul Wheaton, Bill Wilson, Robb Wolf and Joel Salatin on his show.
He currently lives north Texas on rugged 3 acre piece of land which is being transformed via a combination of livestock management, permaculture and earthworks into a modern permaculture showcase. The property is being used as a school to bring permaculture into the main stream world based on a combination of beauty and easy to understand results.
Jack’s primary goal in Permaculture today is to insure that it gains broader main stream appeal and is adopted by many individuals who are not generally thought of as Permaculture’s target audience.
