Jimmy Bob learns about Permaculture, Herbalism and healthy eating at Punta Mona Costa Rica


Hey there Freedom Lover it’s Jimmy Bob here. I wanted to show you something I think is
absolutely ridiculous. Check out this weirdo hippie dippy commune
place here called Punta Mona. Let’s go see what them hippies who are trying
to regenerate the planet are up to. Jimmy Bob: So what’s your role here hippie? Sarah:Well my name is Sarah and
I’m the director of this place. It’s my farm ha ha. Jimmy Bob: How many types of fruits and veggies
do you make here? Sarah: We have over 250 varieties of fruit
trees. I’ve identified about 150 medicinal plants,
wild mushrooms, primary rain forest, all kinds of like roots and vegetables and beans and
different things that grow. Greens I don’t…. Jimmy Bob: Do you have any hamburgers? Fresh local fruit and bananas Vanilla Chocolate Jack human, jack pie Pineapple Yoga with the locals. What the hell? Jimmy Bob: So here at Punta Mona you teach
weirdo hippies how to take dead, cow pasteurized land and turn it into regenerative forest? Why the hell would you want to do that? Sarah: Because we want people to thrive and
be happy and healthy and connected with the land and connected with each other… learning. Jimmy Bob: Where are all them hamburgers gonna
grow? Sarah: We have veggie burgers! Jimmy Bob:Ya I guess so but… thems don’t
make people sick! Sarah: No they don’t
Jimmy Bob: What kind of crazy idea is that? You gotta feed the system girl. Sarah: But we don’t want to. We want to try and break out of the system
and do things a little different. Slowly… slow and small solutions are the
principles of permaculture. Slowly break away. Jimmy Bob: Sounds like a crazy hippie idea
to me. Jimmy Bob: So why are you building a food
forest anyway? Sarah: Well we want to feed the world. We want to make sure that people are healthy. We want to make sure that the soil is healthy. We want to make sure that the water is running
in it’s proper flow. Sarah: Well there are all different kinds
of capital. Right. There’s biological capital, spiritual capital,
money capital. Jimmy Bob: All I care about is money. That’s what Jimmy Bob cares about. ‘MERICA! Jimmy Bob: So what do you think about mono
culture crops? Sarah: Well I think that mono culture crops
are going to starve the world eventually. Right now it’s getting some calories into
peoples bellies, but it’s not a sustainable way of feeding the world. Jimmy Bob: And what’s permaculture then? Sarah: Permaculture is working with the poly
culture system. And so we have many different kinds of plants
here. We have like over 200 species of fruit trees,
we have over 150 medicinal plants. We have identified all kinds of you know all
kinds of amazing wild plants. Roots, foods, spices plus primary rain forest. Jimmy Bob: So let me get this straight. You’re making all this food, and you’re not
hording them seeds, and modifying them genetically and you don’t want to control life itself? Sarah: No we don’t want to control life itself. We don’t want to horde seeds. We want to spread the seeds. We want to make sure that everything is thriving,
that it’s regenerative. We don’t want to be sustainable. We want to be thrive-able. Jimmy Bob: You hippies need to learn a thing
or two about business. Jimmy Bob: So you’re growing all this here
healthy food and herbs to cure people of their dis-eases? Sarah: That’s right. All the medicine you need can be found in
the forest. Jimmy Bob: Well what if I want a band aid
solution whereby a small number of rich people can continue to profit off of my pain and
suffering by selling me other drugs… rather than getting cured? Did you ever take your… did you hippies
ever take your business model into account before you came up with it? Sarah: No we didn’t
Jimmy Bob: It’s a god damn good thing you hippies don’t have enough money to bribe a
government organization to protect your profits. Sarah: We have fruit. Do you think they would like a fruit salad? Jimmy Bob: I don’t know, sounds fruity to
me though. Jimmy Bob: So I hear you’re making these here
tinctures out of plants and feeding them to people to make them healthy? Brandon: Ya. Ya I’m making some herbal extracts. I make them all hand made myself for different
stresses like immune system. We’ve got cold and flu, low on energy. Things like that. Jimmy Bob: What about making your hair all
poofy woofy like that? Brandon: Yep we’ve got some stuff for that
too. Jimmy Bob: Oh wow that sounds good. Brandon: Oh ya. Jimmy Bob: So can you patent that kind of
stuff or what? Brandon: I can’t actually.
Jimmy Bob: What kind of business model is that? Pharmaceutical companies, how are they going
to make money off of that? Brandon: I don’t know. I guess I got to work on that. Jimmy Bob: Ya. Not very good for the economy
Feeding people all natural stuff, what kind of business model is that? Brandon: I think it’s a good one. I think I help people and get them not dependent
on pharmaceuticals or other synthetics. Jimmy Bob: But how are you going to make them
into repeat customers if they aren’t dependent? Now do these thingys here have any side effects? Brandon: No we try to keep all side effects
out of all of the products, out of all of the herbs that we use. Jimmy Bob: If there ain’t no side effects
how are you going to sell people more drugs? Brandon:I don’t know, it’s a chain
reaction huh? Jimmy Bob: You actually want to heal people
so that they can’t be slaves to the system no more? Brandon: I guess so, ya. Jimmy Bob: F’ing hippies Jimmy Bob: Hey there hippie dippy come to
