Scott Pittman didn’t like how the banks were using his money, and he decided to do something about it.
I got to spend time with one of the legends of the permaculture movement – Scott Pittman. Scott and his wife live in a small eco-community located just a bit north of Santa Fe, New Mexico.
I got you a video of a short interview I did with Scott. And I sort of flubbed it.
I mean, Scott has done so much….
When he told me he didn’t like how money worked, so he started his own credit union… I guess I was sort of speechless and you’ll see me stumble a bit. Because there was so much else I wanted Scott to talk about that he has done.
And yet, the concept of starting a credit union is such a great thing – I now wish I had done the whole interview just on that.
Credit Unions are designed as a way for communities to use the power of their own money for themselves.
Anyway, watch this short video and meet this amazing man.
Meet one of the legends of the Permaculture movement Scott Pitman and hear about how he got started and he is spreading the knowledge of Permaculture around the world.
