Brock Dolman is the founder of Occidental Arts & Ecology in Northern
California, one of the first permaculture education centers in North
America. In this conversation Brock displays a tiny fraction of his
savant-level knowledge of ecology, water, soil, trees, and how to engage
in a healing relationship to our environment. His unorthodox insights,
especially relevant in a time of forest fires and extreme weather
events, embed scientific reasoning within an ecospiritual aesthetic.
