"Matt Powers is more than a Permaculture Teacher, he's an educator. We need many more like him to reach the multitudes who have never heard of permaculture. Matt is teaching graduate level permaculture ideas to entry level students in a way that's understandable. In the end it's applicable to everyone since we all need to refresh the basics again and again."
