    Building Community Resilience (Season 1 Recap, Part 3)

    Building Community Resilience (Season 1 Recap, Part 3)

    Welcome to the third installment of our Season 1 Recap series. We’re going to take a dive into the concept of ‘Community’, our place in it, & how we can be more harmonious members & effective contributors, both within a project and amongst our neighbors.

    “Community” can mean different things to different people - at different stages of their lives, even. One of those would be our relationship with our neighbors in our surrounding region.
    Let’s see what’s worked best for our guests.

    016 Host Guest, Volunteers, & Students the Permaculture Way (Season 1 Recap, Part 2)

    Hosting is a hot topic for many new landowners as welcoming in volunteers is an enticing way to get much-needed help building foundational infrastructure. For many new landowners, it also fulfills a desire for social connection and a sense of community. When done well, hosting guests as volunteers, apprentices, students, tourists, farm-stay guests, or curious neighbors can bring an enriching element of cultural interaction, personal growth, and prosperity to your project.

    015 Enahnce Your Project's Financial Sustainability (Season 1 Recap, Part 2)

    Last month I decided to assemble a recap episode.
    I've wanted to do a bit of studying to compile a list of best practices and use them to create a guide for new and veteran landowners alike.

    After some reflection, I’ve decided to restructure my recap into six separate episodes, each one covering a unique aspect of project stewardship.

    In part 1 of this series, I’m going to start with financial sustainability since it’s something that brings a lot of listeners to the show.

    In this half of the interview, we talk about what an impact center is, and then I get into story-telling mode. I also go off a bit, sharing my thoughts on forgiveness of self and others as a core skill to develop when building community.
