Show Notes

The conversation continues from last week’s episode with Justin Dolan of St Michael’s Permaculture Country Club, in Central Pacific Costa Rica.

Justin mentions a number of the innovations that he’s been experimenting with, including natural building with bamboo, bioremediation, soil health, natural cooling with living rooftops and vines, waste management, and more. 

We’ve prepared a video for you, showing one of the Country Club’s living rooftops in action.  Check it out at https://youtu.be/AFk5NbW08R0

We’ve also created an awesome PDF that contains all the best tips we learned from Justin Dolan about designing for resilience. You can download it here: https://regenerationnationcr.com/designing-for-resilience-PDF

This episode is brought to you by, well, YOU! 

I haven’t built up my audience enough to have attracted sponsors and all that, so even though it’s the holiday season, you get to support the show without my selling you stuff.

Isn’t that great!   So, instead of buying an organic cotton shirt or an online course, maybe you can just buy me a coffee!

Cooling a house takes a lot of energy and can be a large expense for many living in the tropics and subtropic regions.

In this video, we visit St Michael’s Permaculture Country Club, home of Justin Dolan in Puntarenas, Costa Rica.

Justin describes how he’s using living roofs and vines to act as a regenerative natural cooling system.

We had a mic failure, but I didn’t want to let the moment go to waste. I hope the subtitles serve you well and the info is inspiring to you!
