Kaela Atleework takes us on her journey growing up in California, becoming an international model for Chanel, and then leaving it all to pursue the nomad life.  After 10 years of traveling, she shares her critical reflections on “voluntourism”.  Kaela then takes us through some considerations for being more socially conscious travelers, including the importance of learning the historical and political context of the places we travel.  Next she shares a story about the time she hitchhiked across South America alone, and reflects on how becoming a digital nomad helped her create a more socially connected life.  Kaela then dives into her area of expertise on human connection, talks about her concept of “Instantaneous Intimacy”, and shares techniques for making deep friendships quickly.  She then explains the importance of being more than just environmentally conscious travelers, and shares some specific tactics for how we can be “ecologically regenerative” travelers.  Kaela then talks about founding Montaia Basecamp as a model for ecologically regenerative and socially connected co-living and co-working in connection with the land.  She then explains her “migrational” nomad lifestyle and the unique benefits of this particular travel style.  And, finally, Kaela  offers her observations and analysis of the way a segment of the pseudo-spiritual wellness community has coalesced with the far right wing around narratives around COVID disinformation and anti-vaccine conspiracies, and what she feels is a potential path out.  FULL SHOW NOTES AVAILABLE AT: www.TheMaverickShow.com

Listen to Erika Kimball, a visionary former practicing nurse who was once horrified by the amount of garbage at the end of her shift, describe to Heather how she changed careers to reduce healthcare's environmental impact. Erika discusses the basic challenges of sustainability and environmentalism in healthcare, which in the US is responsible for 10% of greenhouse gases and is a huge contributor to plastics in the environment. She also addresses the importance of maintaining optimism as really smart people work to improve the system.  In this episode, Heather and Erika discuss:  Healthcare industry is responsible for 10% of US greenhouse gases.   Healthcare generates 5.9 million tons of waste per year and 25% of that is plastic  Healthcare system uses 2.5 times the energy of a commensurate commercial building because of all the technology.  Why if we can get it right in healthcare, it will pave the way for other industries  The majority of materials used in a hospital setting are single-use plastics.  The environmental challenge we have with buying supplements and herbs from overseas, including a lack of sustainable packaging  Why the goal is to have healthy materials, used in optimal amounts, and processed in ways that benefit the environment at end of life  How to improve sustainability in healthcare without driving up costs  Conservation in healthcare. For example, how to we waste less and how do we take better care of our things.  Implementing circular economy principles in healthcare  How today the healthcare system is contributing to breaks in biological cycles  The rise of green chemistry – and how that could produce healthier materials for healthcare  The big problem of single-use plastics in healthcare  Some of the sustainable policies and practices that are being implemented now in healthcare practices and hospitals  How hospitals and doctors and healthcare workers get involved in climate action  Why the social determinants of health are environmental determinants of health  How do we operate in a way that supports those health goals  Why sustainability in healthcare, like COVID, is an all-hands-on-deck moment  The biggest change that the healthcare system could implement that would make a dramatic effect on the environment    Erika Kimball is a sustainability leader who works to reduce the environmental impact of healthcare. She advises hospitals and healthcare companies on sustainability and climate action, healthy materials, circular economy principles, and sustainable policy and practices. A nurse by training, Erika takes a holistic approach to healthcare change management, building the systems, relationships, and capacity to achieve better environmental outcomes. kimballsustainablehealthcare.com   Heather Grzych is the author of The Ayurvedic Guide to Fertility and the host of the Wisdom of the Body podcast.

Profits should come not from creating the world's problems but from solving them. Companies must ask themselves: Is the world better off because your business is in it? These are just a few of the urgent and inspiring lessons offered by the globally renowned sustainable business author and advisor Andrew Winston in his recent book, “Net Positive: Courageous Companies Thrive by Giving More Than They Take,” co-authored with Paul Polman, the visionary former CEO of Unilever.In this episode, host Gil Jenkins speaks with Andrew about the principles and practices of net positive companies that are outlined elegantly and colorfully in his seminal new book. Gil and Andrew talked at length about the growth of clean energy and sustainable businesses, what ultimately convinced Andrew to write his fourth book on the subject, and what makes his co-author's journey so compelling and instructive for others. They also discussed the Golden Rule, why corporate climate advocacy is so important, the failure of shareholder primacy, and a whole lot more.

Introduction What if I told you that your green waste bin was a waste of time? What If I told you that all the fertiliser you spent money on was unnecessary. What If told you that most people who call themselves gardeners are possibly better described as miners. Really!? You might say. Surely not miners… It's sadly true. Most of the methods used in conventional gardens are either backwards or completely void of anything remotely natural. You see, plants don't belong in bins or want to be shipped off to a site other than the soil in which they grow. Plants do just fine without being sprayed or doused with different synthetic soups. Annnd unfortunately most gardeners are taking away a lot more precious minerals than they put into their plots. Fortunately, none of this is necessary. The garden you tend to is much closer to a forest than you think. You know Forests? Those giant guilds of great trees and swathes of understory shrubs and vines that sprawl vast distances that make any vineyard look laughable. Yeh. Forests are what your garden wants to be like. What else do we know about forests? Forests are touted as being carbon sinks, right? Giant vacuums of potent VOCs and greenhouse gases like methane and CO2. If you treat it right, your garden can become a highly valuable carbon sink as well. In this book, I'll show you how. I'll also show how to grow regeneratively. How to start an engine that produces all it needs and creates more fuel for your garden and face than you'll ever know what to do with. Then, I'll show you what to do with the abundance. Let's create a carbon garden. ----------- @mr.betteridge --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/solarpunkpermaculture/message

If you have yet to set out your goals for 2022, then you're absolutely in the right place. If you have, then maybe this anecdote will help support your courage to achieve them! As we wrap 2021, most of you overachievers have likely already mapped out your 2022. But for some of you, goal-setting (actually really writing it down) has not been a regular practice. Well, today's guest credits his practice of goal-setting since age 19, I mean really committing it to writing, to becoming a 4-time All-American athlete, hitting over $1.3 Billion in sales, retiring “early” by age 32, and ultimately finding his current passion: Regenerative Capitalism. Jim Gale, CEO of Food Forest Abundance, is a remarkable and inspiring human, and this interview is a great way to wrap this current year.  I believe it can help vault us into the New Year by breaking down Jim's story and success markers so that you and I can enter into the next year ready to set a  new bar for personal growth, self-expression, achievement (if that's what's important to you) and excellence.  And, if you're curious at all about what the heck Regenerative Capitalism is, well, Jim explains it all in the interview. But the short version of “what the heck is he doing?” is building resilient and self-sustaining food systems that are easily duplicatable using his team's proven “blueprint” along with clean renewable energy, to provide true off-grid sustainability for anyone, anywhere!

Learning how to master your energy is a delicate balance of self-expression, collaborating with others for true growth and a regenerative, life-giving business and supports your well-being at every level.  Who doesn't want that?  When  focusing on how to get into flow with your energy,   the way energy exchanges between you and your environment will elevate and accelerate not only your vitality, but your path to abundance. Controlling the flow of energy, both internally and externally, is the essential ingredient needed in order to learn how to work with others so all can get in the game and master the game of a new conscious economy. It goes without saying that many entrepreneurs have fast brain, many ideas and often are diagnosed (or self-diagnosed) ADHD.   I also know that when you love who you are - it is the fastest and greatest way to create your reality, as then, there is nothing outside of yourself that can stop youWhen creators launch a  service or products and they didn't sell as well as planned, they think it failed, get depressed, take it personally and then start all over again.It took me a long time to realize that as an entrepreneur  I always thought that I didnt fit in well with academics. Which is totally not true my friends - how I absorbed it? Different yes, but I am one big NERD.  And ya'll that know me…. Know I love to do all the work and deliver it on a silver platter. The difference is this:  If in your groove, and your nervous system is wired to move forward, excited and seeing the vision…. they  don't always put knowledge before action. Now I will say this, fear, ADHD executive function, and perfectionism can block you in “needing more information “ in order to move forward.  That's when it goes overboard. But here is what entrepreneurs do, and do well to move the world forward with innovation. They put action before having to have all the checks, balances, managers yes, and all the academic knowledge. They learn through practice not theory. In all my history of 22 years as an entrepreneur, a hair, skincare, CBD line, a past yoga and pilates instructor and functional medicine health coach turned subconscious surgeon, or more formally a clinical hypnotherapist and biofeedback practitioner… I can see now, and love to help others understand the fun, the dopamine hit that can turn into value….and all the true transformation and learning happened once the exam had begun - and that exam was me just getting into flow and moving. .Before I learned the power of being in my flow energy, I did everything by myself, thinking that if I had to get others to do the work for me I was cheating or was “incapable,” and even worse, had been burned so many times that I lost trust.So net net, It took me till mid-life that I realized that while conventional academics is absolutely a core for skills and that I have all the academics I've needed by seeking it out myself, that I also know that this is a different economy that is finally applauding collaboration and that I may want to do it all myself from past patterns of my own trauma, or people letting me down, but thats life and it's not about me.  In life and especially as entrepreneurs, and especially ADHD-driven entrepreneurs, the wisest know they cannot survive if they do it all themselves. Getting others to support the bigger why is true leadership. The infamous Seth Godin has stated the old way of industrialized sit-down and learn is outdated and never meant to create an ecosystem of learning in the first place.  So I know from my, and others' history, the reward of running ahead and being smarter than those around you in business is a faster track to burnout and financial failure.So in summary, I just want you to know that the smartest entrepreneurs weren't the ones who were smartest in their team, but the ones who surrounded themselves with people smarter than them, that my businesses had a chance to grow.And the biggest lesson of all, was that while success in a neurotypical world comes to those who worked hard to know the subjects best, success in business – and in life – came to those who worked hard to know themselves and their energy the best. Not to say that information is valuable. Without flow and action, its worthless. Just as the rules of football are opposite to the rules of basketball, the rules of information is opposite to the rules of self-mastery and entrepreneurship.So if you're going to be a creator or entrepreneur, unlearn before you learn so you don't have to undo the things you do.This is why I'm on a mission to create a Regenerative Business that loves me just as much as I love it. I ask you, what if we designed our business, relationships, and products  in a way where abundance and well-being was the natural outcome? This is why I like to offer my clients a test that over 1 million of the most successful entrepreneurs use to master their energetic blueprint  - imagine every time a person, business, brand, organization, or project infuses The Fountain of YOU BLueprint Foundation into their ecosystem, we are all one step closer to raising global consciousness and well-being. Why? Because I use our whole brain and energetic systems as the guide. During the Fountain of YOU Course, I   support women to design, create, and manage with a more holistic and regenerative approach. The result: Energetic and a nervous system based on health and unleashed potential. A living, evolving and naturally functioning life where abundance and resilience are the recurring outcomes of its underlying health. I call this Regenerative way of living the Fountain of You, because all you need is already there within.. So raise your hand if your ready to stop laying your own care at the alter of the old way of hustle and grind and had the highest level of personalization creating a path of least resistance just for you.  Join me and design your life, relationships and purpose energetically first so you dont burn out so you can tap into your zone of genius unleash potential and natural well-being. If you die tonight will you be living the life you were called to live?

Despite the growing popularity of organic foods and products, many consumers are still not aware of the benefits and downsides. The word ‘organic' is now being used as a buzzword to sell all sorts of products. The label cannot be taken at face value. Consumers should do their own research to ensure that the product actually is what it claims to be. Data on the organic sector is not readily available and it is important to have as much information as possible in order to make better decisions. The only way to find out whether something is good or bad for you is if we have access to enough data and statistics. Who is Will Elrick?

In episode 259, Kestrel welcomes Georgina Johnson, London-based artist, curator and social thinker, to the show. Georgina is the founder of arts and curation platform The Laundry and the editor of The Slow Grind: Finding Our Way Back to Creative Balance. “Our thirst for change is unquenchable — and the more that people feel like they have agency in that, is the more that degrowth becomes possible.” -Georgina Conversations around degrowth are beginning to infiltrate the fashion space – but thus far, I have been pretty skeptical when I see it discussed in mainstream publications or by bigger brands, because it feels strangely familiar, like it's quickly going to become the next *buzzword* the industry co-opts for marketing purposes. I discovered this week's guest in a somewhat desperate Google attempt to uncover anything about fashion and degrowth with substance on the interwebs. In the article I found – “It's Time For Brands To Engage With Degrowth” – Georgina writes that growth is taking a backseat to a pursuit of equity and balance, and I was instantly enthralled and wanted to learn more. Turns out, she is also the author of a beautiful new book called The Slow Grind. While the book explores ideas to help us find our way back to creative balance, through a multitude of lenses – something that really struck me was how it weaves mental health into the sustainability or regenerative narrative – something I rarely see directly linked. For example – the book reminds us to reflect on what we currently value in our society. We revere things like – speed, working all the time, doing jobs beyond our pay grade, and keeping our mental health a secret – so yeah, the aspects that we quote unquote value seem to be inevitably leading us down a path to eventual burnout … AKA a mandatory slow down. Centering an awareness of our current pace – this week's guest reminds us that expanding our views on what a path to a better world looks like is key to lasting transformation.  Quotes & links from the conversation: “It's Time For Brands To Engage With Degrowth”, article Kestrel mentions that Georgina wrote for The Future Laboratory "Sometimes I really think like -- why do you need to grow so much? Why does there need to be 4 H&Ms on Oxford Street? Why? Why do there need to be multiple Zaras? This is one street. And there are multiples of one store on this one road. To me, it doesn't make sense. The growth agenda is really just rooted in greed, because you don't need to own everything.” -Georgina Order Georgina's book The Slow Grind > The Slow Grind press > Follow Georgina on Instagram > Follow The Slow Grind on Instagram >

At times comedic and other times deeply poignant, he shares how he connects with his highest self and even what he thinks is the best way to clean your bum after going to the bathroom.  In this episode, Heather and Jack discuss: Jack's podcast, PODSONGS, and his songs that are based on the interviews he does on his podcast.  Getting Ayurvedic treatment for fertility in India.  Jack's experience of Ayurvedic pulse diagnosis.  Why going to Chinese and Ayurvedic doctors is about going to get your pulse felt.  The book, the Serpent Power, about kundalini.  Seeing the state of the whole from the singular. Why we ultimately end up taking unexpected paths when we go on a spiritual journeys, like the story told in the book The Alchemist, by Paulo Coehlo.  What it's like to sense the nadis and prana, and have a spiritual awakening.  What it means to be in touch with your higher self and your not-highest self.  How Jack found his teacher and got involved with the Aetherius Society.  Waking up at 3:33 am. Why so many people need greater access to mysticism today. How to use Ayurveda to woo your girlfriend. Jack's song, Clean and Regular, which is about him trying to help his girlfriend improve her bowel movements.  Whether toilet paper, a bum gun or a bidet is best, and how to properly clean your bum after going to the bathroom.  Seasonal eating and the Mediterranean diet. Jack Stafford is a British singer-songwriter renowned for his thought-provoking lyrics, and is the host of Podsongs, a podcast where artists interview activists and write a #songforgood to help them with their work. Jack is also a talented singer-songwriter in his own right and has released 18 albums over the last 20 years. In the last year alone he has released over 100 songs. Jack grew up in the UK but quickly moved to Amsterdam, where he lived a toyboy lifestyle working as a copywriter, musician and fashion designer. However, this led to burnout, so Jack sold all his possessions and set off on a bicycle tour as a nomadic troubadour. He travelled through 45 countries, playing hundreds of house concerts in return for a place to sleep. He recorded many of his crazy adventures in his songs, and through those—plus countless self-help books and podcasts, as well as yoga, Ayurveda and Vipassana meditation—he grew and grew to become a unique modern-day troubadour. He is on a mission to bring spirituality to the centre stage and mysticism back into the mainstream. www.podsongs.com  Heather Grzych is the author of The Ayurvedic Guide to Fertility and the host of the Wisdom of the Body podcast.

Podcast Intro: Harmony with the natural world.  Place Philosophy provides services and programs that seek to inspire and empower collaborative leadership and wellbeing in urban professionals, to enable personal and planetary thrive. Our belief in both inner transformation and systemic and cultural change guides everything we do.  Our programming is an invitation to embark on a transformational journey to regenerative leadership. Through workshops and ongoing immersive experiences, we embed wellbeing in all we do and explore the design of a new paradigm and the leadership attributes needed at this time. How can we increase our collective capacity to become active regeneration agents in our communities and ecosystems? Undoubtedly, we live in a time marked by great upheaval and volatility, and all political and business leaders are being forced to cope with rising challenges.  We can see an organization's place within its surrounding environment, its ecosystem. Suppose we apply living-systems logic to product design, organizational culture, and our being. Embracing this regenerative approach to leadership won't change things, and it requires patience, practice, and compassion for ourselves and others. We invited Jamie Hogan to discuss his approach that values every life and a new leadership logic where organizations flourish, ecosystems thrive, and people feel alive is what Regenerative Leadership is all about. What you'll get out of tuning in: How does Jamie get into the whole regenerative movement? What is the death of a hero? Upscaling people - a catalyst in the community The connection between dharma and regenerative design - ecology What is a regenerative living roadmap Design skills to bring regenerative design and thinking into your work,  What is regenerative leadership? How can you build a better, stronger, smarter ecosystem of business? Links/CTA: Place Philosophy Highlights: Cate and her team developed passive leadership to help others get better at leadership. Cate explains why yoga health coaches needed more experience to accomplish their job. Cate shares when she developed Pbook in July, she tried to help people in determining what is waste and what are waste products. Timestamps: 08:06 - Regenerative Leadership Space 09:49 - Localization of Ecosystem 15:17 - Regenerative Landscape 24:02 - Integrating Nature and Art 29:24 - Regenerative practice designing the conditions for life 31:59 - “Transplanting” Culture 45:11 - System Thinking Level 46:24 - System Alternatives Quotes: “There are so many amazing people who have these visions for a better world, but we're not supporting them to actually be able to stay in those professions.” “You kind of want to set up the intelligence of the system that then self-perpetuates and continues to be creative and evolve so that you could if you needed to step out, and the system has the intelligence itself.” “It becomes self-perpetuating, like the life of the culture becomes a thing of its own, and it wants to find other places to grow.” “We start with the habits. You will spend a whole year learning how to think in the living systems context. And to start, we'll start with ourselves because it's the easiest way to start.” “If you're not a yoga teacher, then don't try to be a yoga teacher. Be what you are because you're needed in your community, to serve your community and not the other communities.” Guest Bio: Jaime Hogan https://placephilosophy.com.au/mission Jaime has a diverse spatial and policy skillset having worked across architecture, urban design, and strategic planning in government and private organizations around Sydney. Jaime has designed and delivered sustainable solutions in bespoke residential architecture, prepared complex structure plans to guide inner-city renewal in some of Sydney's most recognized centers, and prepared strategic plans and policies for the Local Government. Jaime is actively involved in the Planning Institute of Australia, supporting the institute in preparing policies and campaigns for climate change, building sustainability, and social issues. Jaime has also chaired the Education Subcommittee for two years, creating a fresh program of continuing education and development for planning professionals. Having qualified as a yoga and meditation teacher in 2015, Jaime also regularly curates workshops, courses, and public classes to offer the community regenerative wellbeing practices grounded in traditional yoga and Ayurveda, and emerging behavioral- and neuro-science. Jaime's work supports her belief that urban professionals must own their duty as custodians of the built and natural environment to create environmentally sustainable, equitable, and engaging places for all. She knows that this kind of leadership takes a resilient mindset and rhythmic wellbeing that is deeply attuned to place and practiced in the community. Jaime founded Place Philosophy in 2021 to bridge the gap between leadership education, wellbeing, and regenerative practices.

Fashion. It's big business. But it's also got big problems. As an industry it's responsible for 10% of global carbon emissions, and around the world just 2% of fashion workers are paid a livable salary. But despite this, we're consuming and producing more clothing than ever before. In this one off documentary we'll be examining how we got here. What are the pressures causing us to overconsume, and how can we begin to curb them? How is lack of transparency causing confusion for consumers? And what can we do about a fashion industry that prioritizes profits over people and planet, all the while utilising clever marketing tactics and greenwashing to convince us otherwise. As it turns out, all it takes is for us to pull on the thread a little harder...for the whole thing to unravel. The Stitch Up was presented and produced by Bea Duncan.

David Kirkland is an architect, designer and co-founder of Kirkland Fraser Moor. He is also a photographer and co-founder of d-lab, a creative design lab which pushes boundaries and is inspiring a new generation of architects and designers. We discuss biomimicry, primitive design, architectural education, the Eden Project, Para Homes and much more. This is also a call for a “flourishing”, over and above just “sustainability”. David talks about his early upbringing in a remote part of in Zimbabwe, exploring mud and experiencing nature, raw, first-hand which has informed how he looks at our relationship with our built environment. How, by stripping back to a primitive narrative, we get down to the foundation, we can get back to the stories which are elemental to being human. Regenerative design is central to his practice. Our built environment creates about 40% of our carbon emissions, and architects are at the forefront of helping solve this. His belief is that architects have a huge opportunity here, with head in the clouds but feet firmly on the ground, to think laterally to minimise this. For him, it is all about Life, with a capital L.This is also a call for more beauty, and awe in our world. A respect for our planet. We discuss his educational, home and other projects; how natural light, plants, greenery, views all have a positive impact on the health of the people living and working in the buildings they create.You might already be aware of the “Para” house concept? I wasn't until he described what these are and how his architectural practice creates these iconic homes of the future. Listen to the podcast, but Para homes echo who we are, and are designed to be cultural assets for future generations to appreciate; they should also be exceptional. Having discussed principles behind the creative architectural process, we also look at how architects can use economic triggers, such as showing the benefits of local materials, to help create arguments for improved design. David touches on some of the themes expressed at Rio and expands this by speaking passionately about how, when we design a space, we need to look proactively at how what we build can improve the economy, society, ecology, justice and equity.To find out more about David Kirkland and follow his practice, look at https://www.k-f-m.com To scroll through our other podcasts, have a look here on our main podcast page.

This is the second season finale of the podcast! As you probably know by now, the focus of this season is circular fashion and in the past 15 episodes or so, we've talked about secondhand, swapping, renting, slowing down production, repairing and mending, recycling and upcycling, and beginning in last week's episode, composting and building soil-to-soil circularity.We will be continuing that conversation today and also discussing regenerative fashion and regenerative agriculture a bit more. I am going to be interviewing Nishanth Chopra, who is the founder of Oshadi Collective, an initiative that is re-creating a circular and regenerative seed-to-sew-supply chain that is rooted in ancient Indian agricultural practices and artisan heritage.Oshadi is truly breaking molds and boundaries and re-imagining a better fashion future that can uplift rather than degrade; regenerate rather than destroy; celebrate rather than exploit.And so I was so humbled that I had the opportunity to talk with Nishanth all about Oshadi's seed-to-sew supply chain and discuss their approach to regenerative fashion, and circularity, and building a more equitable fashion supply chain. Nishanth had some really interesting points about minimum wages and living wages in this interview that really got me thinking...I actually did this interview a few months ago, but I decided to leave this episode for the very end of this season because Oshadi is just doing so many incredible things that provide a great blueprint for what a more positive fashion system could look like.I thought it would be fitting to end the second season with  an inspirational episode, so I hope you enjoy it!

Have you heard of regenerative medicine? This describes using your body's own natural regenerative abilities to turn back the clock. Certain cells contain powerful anti-aging properties, such as stem cells, and these can be harnessed to make your skin look more youthful, thicken your hair, and even improve how things work “down there.” I strongly believe that regenerative medicine is a major component of the future of plastic surgery. Unfortunately, there is major controversy surrounding many of these treatments. So on this episode, I'm joined by an expert in regenerative medicine. We'll discuss the various options available and the differences between them, the legal issues surrounding them, and cut through the marketing hype to reveal whether they truly work.

It's a great way to support the show while greening up your lifestyle. Our earned commissions won't cost you a dime!   Hello and welcome to Part 4 of a 6-part recap series. It's been a humbling exercise to keep up with all the fun stuff that comes with producing a podcast. Creating new episodes is only one of them.   Interviewing a bunch of rebel back-to-the-landers was a pretty attractive introduction to the idea of starting a podcast and getting good ideas out in the open.  I've loved it and am excited to release the other episodes that I have edited and waiting for you.      Doing these recap episodes, however, has been another kind of adventure.     Don't get me wrong; it's been an invaluable practice for me to do these reviews.  I feel like I'm getting out of this podcasting adventure the education that I was looking for.    All the same, creating audio content from a screen full of notes that you've taken from what other people have said is a lot more difficult than just speaking off the cuff. We humans are intrinsically a part of the planet we live on, and we're as inseparable from it as we are intertwined with its other expressions of lifeforms we co-exist with.  We are all composed of recycled molecules that we cyclically share with bacteria, viruses, other creatures, and the soil itself.   There are plenty of religions that tell the story of how we came from the soil, and to the soil, we return.  Yet we continue to tell ourselves and teach our children, the egoic myths that lead most people to think that we can somehow live healthfully, independent from healthy soil, not to mention the life-enriching variety of other earth dwellers that we share it with.   It's imperative for us to weave our inherent interconnection with the rest of our planet's existence back into our culture. We're all part of an organic planet. Like the unimaginable number of different cells that we need for our bodies to function properly, our planet (our larger self) needs its cellular diversity to remain intact and cared for.  Like us, when the planet loses significant parts of its functioning body, imbalances occur that can be much more difficult to return from than if things were already in a more relative state of balance. This episode is all about land management and what we've learned from those who've been doing the work and measuring their results.  Building healthy soil is one of the most important things that any of us could be doing right now. I'm going to say it again; a healthy humanity depends on healthy soil.   I'm going to be a little honest with you. I'm not the plant guy of the family. I  enjoy planting things here and there, and I love preparing food with fresh harvest from the garden, but  I'm generally not the guy you can rely on to keep a seedling alive long enough to transplant it or make sure the fertilization schedule stays current.     This episode was a bit of a challenge for me to get into. I've had to shed a bit of my imposter syndrome to be talking to a bunch of plant-enthusiasts about something that I know very little about, compared to them. At the same time, that's the theme of this entire podcast.  While I certainly have a fair share of things I've learned and can teach newcomers to the farm, this has been my season to humble down, take notes and be a student.   Let's see what that's looked like.    I've divided this episode into three sections. First, we'll talk about the planning stages of land management, followed by a recap of some of our guests' soil-building tips.  Lastly, we'll wrap it up with some insights they've learned from working with the plants themselves.   Let's jump in... It all starts with a good design. Justin Dolan learned a valuable lesson about doing your due diligence and having your land surveyed. While he strongly recommends doing so before buying your property, it worked out to his advantage when he disputed his neighbor's practice of spraying herbicides too close to his gardens.  A little investigation taught him that what they both thought was the neighboring golf course's road, was actually on his side of the property line.  The circumstance drove the golf-course developer toward unexpected production costs, leading them to sell the property to Justin at a low-enough price that Justin was able to take it on and turn it into what's become the country club's 18-hole permaculture disk-golf course.     In telling his story, Justin recommends that when negotiating your land purchase, you can often get the seller of your new property to share the costs of that assessment.   Justin also recommends hiring someone to do a biodiversity study, upon buying it, to educate yourself on what you have living on your property.  How cool would it be to have a customized bird-watching laminate card for you and your visitors to relate to your neighboring critters with!?   He says that “real” country clubs should be taking care of the countryside.  What a concept!   Water management is a crucial element to focus on, for any land project.  Amidst that is to give sufficient focus on how we manage our wastewater.  Justin's greywater and blackwater systems are built to bioremediate toxins.    Bioremediation is a process where certain plants break down the molecular structure of certain toxins, transforming them into inert matter.   The methods he uses make both economic and ecological sense.  Some of the plants he uses include planting lana, hemp, fungus, and oysters to filter the water. He says that hemp is an ideal product to feed with these wastewaters.  He also uses plastic bottles filled with biochar to further filter out pathogens.   Esteban Acosta was another guest who's put some significant thought into optimizing greywater and blackwater.  His biodigester systems have been refined to a point where they produce cooking gas, by fermenting the kitchen and bathroom wastes produced from a small residential home!     The price of gas keeps going up, folks.  Investing in a design that can give you free fuel while creating garden fertilizer is an investment seriously worth considering, especially if you're still in the process of building or designing a new home.   One thing that Justin expressed that stuck with me was that if you design your communal spaces to be beautiful, people will want to protect and contribute to them.     Justin has an infectious enthusiasm for using his property as a living seed bank. He encourages us to share and propagate as many different seeds as we can find.    Like Nico Botefur from Essence Arenal, Justin encourages us to plant our houses by putting bamboo in the ground as early as possible. He boasts that it's like printing your own money.  Seeing the price you can pay for prepared bamboo canes in some places, I'd say he's right.Nico further reminds us to plant plenty of it and use it liberally in ways that the bamboo poles can be replaced easily. It's a renewable resource that can be fun to work with once you get the hang of it. At Finca La Isla, Peter Kring has designed his food forests in an impressively systematic way. His property is designed as a network of crisscrossing rainforest corridors that frame out a series of 1-3 acre lots. Each of these lots has a themed collection of fruit trees and exotic palms planted within them.  That way, the wildlife can pass through his property freely, and while he loses some quantity of food to these neighboring critters, they contribute to the health of the soil, and therefore trees, in very beneficial ways. The key's just to plant more trees!   His neighbor, Terry Lillian Newton, invites us to try and let go of our attachments to what we think the property should be and learn to appreciate its innate essence.   Terry reminds us that if you want to have horses, plan for plenty of open space and a diversity of grasses, herbs, fruits, and flowers. Plant them all around their grazing areas or along the perimeter. She recommends learning more about this method in a book called Paddock Paradise, by Jamie Jackson. Building Healthy Soil Switching over now to the topic of building healthy soil, we'll start with Ed Bernhardt, the guy who refers to the back-to-the-land movement as a “silent revolution.” Ed refers to himself as a deep ecologist who aims to live with the land rather than on it.   Ed provides us with several great recipes for making valuable items like fast compost, his “kombucha for the plants,” a kitchen-made insecticide that's suitable for chewing insects, and even a biosand water filter.  We've made a PDF with these recipes outlined out for you. You can find a link to it in the transcripts of this episode, as well as in the show notes of Ed's Episode (#002.)   Ed also reminds us to do what we can to recycle our waste. Shredding newspaper and food scraps into compost is a great start.  If you live in an urban environment, you can look into buying Compost Drums or Worm Bins to make transforming your trash into treasure, faster and tidier.   Justin Dolan makes his bokashi microorganisms in his livestock corral and uses his animals to mix it.  The process adds nutrients to the mix while creating beneficial bacteria that eat pathogens in the corral. Making bokashi in the animal corals and spraying a tea version of it around the coral keeps it disinfected and smelling great.    In Justin's bokashi-production video, we also looked at his method of sustaining moisture and nutrients in the soil by creating Biochar.  He digs a big hole, about  2x3 meters wide and a meter or so deep, and fills it with wood waste. He ignites it, covers it with a dense layer of palm leaves with some sand on top, and leaves it to smolder. He comes back the next day to remove the leaves, and he's left with a pit full of biochar - enough for the whole year!   His extra touch comes when he removes the biochar. He fills the hole back up with wood to make a hugelkultur bed.  Hugelkultur is this great method of mounting up wood logs and covering it with dirt.  That dirt is planted on, and the wood underneath goes through a slow decomposition process, providing long-term fertilizer for the garden.   Peter Kring mimics nature in the ways he applies mulch to his food forests.  He mulches heavily around the dripline of the trees, adding biochar and manure to the mulch.  That way, the biochar-inoculated-mulch bed slowly covers the area as the trees develop.   Peter also adds micro-organisms to the mix during wet times of the year. For more efficient use in your dripline applications, he recommends harvesting mulch from a nearby forest floor and hydrating it to extract the beneficial microorganisms before applying.   When taking harvest from our trees, he encourages us to put something back for the tree to continue to thrive.  Find out what minerals each tree needs and create a schedule of application.  It doesn't have to be a heavy fertilizing regiment.  A bit of calcium carbonate (or rock phosphate) mixed with some manure and worm compost can be very effective.  He recommends making it in large quantities and then adding your biomass, biochar, and micro-organisms, as needed, throughout the year.   For more information on biochar, Peter recommends checking out the documentary The Secret Of Eldorado - TERRA PRETA, on YouTube.   Esteban's businesses, Sembrando Flores and Viogaz, focus primarily on soil improvement.  Esteban has proven again and again that Biodynamic-preparation applications significantly improve commercial-scale coffee and wine production.   In his practice of working with other landowners, he teaches those coming from a more conventional background and don't trust organic methods to consider replacing a small percentage of their fertilizers with compost to start.  That way, they can measure the results and make decisions from there.   He encourages us to grow our biomass precisely where we want to plant our gardens and trees in the coming year. He primarily uses plants like Macuna & Mexican sunflower for this task. Plant it heavily where you want to plant, and chop it back just before it goes to seed.   This practice aligns with Esteban's approach of setting up conditions where the soil can feed itself. Healthy-soil biology largely replaces the need for soil amendments.  He recommends using small amounts of high-quality compost with high quantities of cheap biomass grown on the fields. Simply apply compost tea on top of the biomass. His Biogas installations provide multiple yields of gas & liquid fertilizer in quantities that can allow you to apply an abundance of that tea weekly, or even daily.   In Nico's YouTube video, he uses the water from his tilapia ponds to drain directly into his biomass pile, which composts down and is moved to the gardens for top mulching. He also has hoses to inoculate his garden beds with the tilapia pond water.  Nico shares the opinion of many of our guests of how building soil should be the #1 priority when starting a new project.    Now, onto the Wonderful World of Plants   My first guest, Suzanna Leff of Finca Amrta, is as passionately connected to her gardens as anyone I've met.  Planting and processing harvest are some of her favorite tactics for helping her volunteers experience the magical qualities of life. In Finca Amrta's farm tour video, one of her volunteers describes how they grow their vanilla beans by gently helping each flower pollinate itself.  So cool!   Ed Berhardt shared a valuable insight when he pointed out that many medicinal herbs often tolerate shade, making them great to plant near the house or amidst tall trees.   One of the most exciting things I've learned from Ed occurred when I went to his place a few years ago, and he taught me how to propagate bamboo by cutting down a culm and creating several 1-meter-long portions from the upper third of the cane.  You cut each piece so that it has at least four nodes.  In between each node, you cut a small square out of one side of the culm - big enough for rainwater to get to it.     You plant the cane laying down lengthwise, half in the soil, with the open windows exposed to the elements.  As the culm fills with water and hydrates, it'll send roots down at each of the nodes, as well as shoots that'll begin to climb to the sky.  It takes a little longer to get going than if you just dig out a more mature shoot from the side of a clump, but it requires much less effort.   Besides the hemp & lana that Justin uses for his blackwater bioremediation, he also uses Mexican Sunflower, a plant that he and Esteban use for Green Manure.   Another one of his favorites to plant around is a bush called Miracle Fruit.  He says that it's an excellent food for people with diabetes.  This miracle fruit removes your ability to taste the acidic qualities of the foods you eat afterward.  This results in sour foods like lemons and vinegar tasting sweet!  It's a great way to satisfy a sweet tooth with non-sweet foods!   Justin likes to play with different plants to create microclimates for other plants and his living spaces.  He uses vining plants to cool down the walls of his house and also uses them to create trellised wind-breaks or dappled shade for more delicate foods. He encourages us to rearrange our perspectives on what medicine is, or can be. He sets the example of planting herbs as a living first aid kit all around and outside your home.   He also encourages us to plant things like neem, hombre grande, madero negro, garlic, and chili, to be used as ingredients for natural pest control. In some cases, it might even be worth importing some beneficial insects like the praying mantis or ladybugs to eat more invasive species like ants and mites. Besides, who wouldn't love to see more praying mantises and ladybugs around, right?   While he recommends that we remove weak and dying plants to keep insects away, he also reminds us that intentionally stressing plants can build resilience in some cases.   Peter Kring is another master gardener who turned out to be a treasure trove of tips.  Most notably, he recommends that most fruiting trees should be pruned after their fruiting cycles.  You have to do your homework, though.  Some fruits, like rambutan, can be pruned back as much as 2 meters, while others, like the mangosteen, don't like to be pruned at all.   Peter's nursery operation consists primarily of grafted durian, chompadek, and other exotic fruits that produce better quality fruits faster when they're propagated as a graft.  As he explains in his YouTube video on the topic, it can shave several years off the time you might have to wait for the tree to bear mature fruits.   Another little tip that he gave us is that if you mix the variety of durian trees you plant in an area, they'll pollinate each other, and the diversity will increase your harvest seasons. I've seen similar things done with avocados.   While, like me, Lynx Guimond may not necessarily be Sailcargo's go-to plant-management guy, the tour we took on his farm really blew me away.  There are far more foods that can be planted near the beach than I ever imagined.  For any properties that need to conserve water, he's demonstrated, yet again, that greywater filtration is a powerful way to water your gardens in a nutrient-rich way.   I'll leave you with one final tip that I've picked up from my own land management learnings. It's in alignment with the principle often described as Value the Marginal. While planting food has its obvious value and importance, don't skimp on the pollinators.  We need to plant pretty things. If not for ourselves and the aesthetic pleasure of our guests, we need a diversity of flowers in our gardens to attract the ever-vigilant birds and bees that make our gardens an Eden.   With that, my friends, I bid you a wonderful rest of your day.  Remember to subscribe to the podcast if you haven't already, so you'll get notified when I eventually release our next episode on natural and sustainable construction methods.Until then, Go find a seed and plant it somewhere lovely!   P.S: Besides leaving a rating and review or sharing the show with someone who'd like it, you can support the show and yourself by visiting our Support the Show page.

They look at the relationship between micro and macro regeneration, how to find time for the important acts of care and what role, if any, guilt plays in all of this.  It is another uplifting, practical episode, and we hope you enjoy it!

Diana and I talk frequently, usually comparing notes on some of the insanity (and bright spots) we see we see in the food and regenerative ag space. Each time we talk we usually say "we should have recorded that!" Well, today, we did. We laid out some basic ground that we share and also dug into some news topics, including the first patient given a diagnoses of "climate change." https://www.instagram.com/p/CWIj9RDrY6T/ https://indianexpress.com/article/world/climate-change/climate-change-patient-canada-british-columbia-7614348/   Sponsor: The Healthy Rebellion Radio is sponsored by our electrolyte company, LMNT.
