About this episode's guest on the Vegetable Gardening Show, Michael Judd

#355: How to Grow a lot of Sweet Tasting Paw Paws (Michael Judd) Growing up between northern England and the Appalachian mountains of Maryland, Michael’s roots have been branched with diverse landscapes and fertile culture. Mix in a decade of running a grass roots non-profit in rural Latin America, heading up an arid lands research project in the dessert of SE Spain, and extensive study at the New York Botanic Garden you end up with an eclectic designer that melds form, function, and productivity seamlessly.

Michael’s beginning with whole system design began with an opportunity to live with the last of the Lacondon Mayans in southern Mexico along the Guatemalan border. Here he experienced the ancient design practices of the Mayans that ingeniously mimic natures patterns to create functional landscapes. About the same time he discovered a parallel design system coming out of Australia, “permaculture,” that applies similar landscape use of the Mayans but adapted to the modern world. Combining designs in 2001 he created Project Bona Fide on Ometepe Island, SW Nicaragua.
