A day with Owen Hablutzel
« on: July 14, 2013, 06:54:38 PM »
So cool. My friends/neighbors from Heartwater Farm http://www.heartwaterfarm.com/index.cfm organized a day with Owen Hablutzel at the fairgrounds event center. Owen took his PDC from Geoff Lawton and like him, is in demand all over the World. Our little backwater was geographically between gigs for him so we lucked out and got him to stop for a day.

The morning talk was about grazing and livestock management and was well-attended, and even more encouraging, well-received, by the local ranchers. The afternoon talk was an introduction to permaculture, apparently not as appealing, but still a decent turnout. 

Owen's a really nice, down-to-earth guy. If you ever get a chance to meet him & attend one of his talks, go for it. BTW, Hablutzel is of Swiss origin. It's such an unusual name I had to ask.  :) Here's a 'Tube if you're interested:
