The sounds of Permaculture

Posted by

I was lucky enough to see the Formidable Vegetable Sound System perform live in a small hall a few months ago.

They are spreading a great message about permacultre, growing food & all things sustainable using entertainment & music.

I really enjoyed the gypsy, eclectic, electro-swing sounds & the vibrant message & so I decided to buy the CD.
Instead of a CD & was given a packet of rocket seeds which contained a note with the link to download the CD.... truly creative & sustainable way of spreading the seeds....
I really dig those guys (excuse the pun but I had to say it...) & I hear over the grape vine that they are doing really well in Europa & the UK too.
