Over 1 Hour Presentation on Food Forest Establishment (video)

by Jack Spirko

This is a presentation I gave in November 2013 when we installed the swales for our 3/4th acre food forest during an earthworks workshop. The class was mostly hands on — during this class we installed over 500 feet of swales on contour.

We did do some classroom time though. This presentation was on the fundamentals of food forest establishment.

Spirko founded The Survival Podcast aka TSP in June of 2008 while still working with his partner Neil Franklin. During the first 18 months of the show (June of 2008 - Dec. of 2009) Spirko did the show during his 55 mile commute from his personal mobile studio a 2006.5 Jetta Diesel TDI. The show quickly grew in popularity attracting about 2,000 daily listeners by the end of 2008, by the end of 2009 the show was being listened to by close to 15,000 people daily. At that time Spirko made the decision to take the show to a full time endeavor. Today the show attracts over 100,000 daily listeners and is referred to by Spirko as his "life's work" and his "true calling".
