Here I am interviewed (in the midst of a "National Alert" no less) by Jesse Tack on the Permaculture Institute of North America's YouTube channel in a video titled "PINA Wisdom Story: The Life and Times of a Permaculture Wizard."
Afterwards, Jesse wrote to me and said, "It was a really pleasure to get to know you and I will never forget the
Bill Mollison in a huge pickle barrel story! You also seeded quite a few ideas for me to plant within PINA."
It's about an hour and a half and starts at 9 minutes, 30 seconds into the video.
