Such a deep honour to have my dear friend and very first ever podcast guest Rosemary (‘Rowe’) Morrow from the Blue Mountains Permaculture Institute back on the show (after being my very first ever guest!) sharing her permaculture journey over four decades this week.
Some of the topics you’ll hear in this truly wonderful chat are Rowe’s:
- new in-progress book
- thoughts on the adequacies and inadequacies of permaculture
- issue with most permaculture being taught to middle class westerners
- work in refugee camps and other largely invisible margins which are rapidly growing
- thoughts on designing yourself into your place vs designing yourself out of overseas places you work
- chapter on a permaculture approach to the oceans
- thoughts on decolonisation and re-indigenising
- thoughts on the essence of permaculture
Please note after our chat Rowe asked if I would please share this link about supporting a permaculture project addressing the Humanitarian Crisis after the burning of the Moria Camp on the island of Lesbos.
Rowe also mentioned Milkwood’s Permaculture Living Skills course which you can check out here.
