Mitch Rawlyk: Practicing Permaculture with an Atmospheric Science Twist

When passion, profession, and lifestyle converge, the result looks…something like the life Mitch Rawlyk is crafting. Permaculture fascinated him even during his university days, and when he came away with degrees in earth systems and applied meteorology, he knew he wanted a purposeful career with a holistic perspective. Listen as he shares how he discovered Verge’s ecological engineering approach, and through audacity, persistence, and hard work moved up from unpaid intern to PDC grad, faculty member, product manager, and permaculture farmer.
