219 GreenConnect host Kathy Sipple speaks with Marshall Willoughby, a hard core environmentalist from Gary, Indiana about his permaculture lifestyle. Marshall lives in a 120-square foot geodesic dome and generates his first 1000 watts of electricity using his home built wood gasification unit. He grows much of his own food and considers it medicine since it is far superior to a lot of what is grown commercially in nutrient depleted soil.

“One day, Willoughby believes, there will be no gas for your cars and your toilet will not flush. If that day comes — and Willoughby thinks it will soon — he will wake again on the floor of his dome, load wood into his generator, and his life will not have changed at all.” Excerpted from a Chicago Tribune article. Read the rest here.
