This episode has the incredibly long title because I wanted to answer both of listener Troy’s questions at the same time. Though they are different ideas, the monetary yields, how you can save and make money implementing Permaculture, is an approachable way to share this information with other people. Finding that common thread and engaging people on their interests is the easiest way I’ve found to open the door, share it with them, and get them thinking about using the ethics and principles in their own lives.
It isn’t easy, especially when you are not talking to the people who share your interest in this idea. I spoke about the Transition Towns movement recently to a group and it took more hours of work on my part to produce something interesting, that fit in the short time allowed, that would also reach them from their viewpoint, and didn’t skew Transition too far one way or another from what it is. In the end, the idea of money and economic resilience was the angle I took and thankfully it worked.
As you get out and start sharing the information, the process will get easier and you will find a way. If there is any way I can help on that path, please let me know.
