Thistles- The Prickly Plant With An Important Job

Episode 13: Ecological Designer and Permaculture Instructor Larry Santoyo talks about thistles. More interesting than you might think, thistles play an important role in soil restoration. 

Larry tells us about the intrinsic characteristics of thistles, why the Earth calls them in, and what effect they have on the landscape. 

After listening you may gain a new appreciation for this prickly, unpopular plant!
