    My guest for this episode is Keith Johnson, permaculture teacher, designer, part of the team at Permaculture Activist magazine, and someone incredibly active in spreading the word of permaculture to the world.

    During this episode we speak about abandoning hope (don’t worry it’s not as depressing as it sounds), looking towards action, and through the many places we find inspiration for ourselves, and how to empower others. As always, you’re guaranteed a whirlwind ride once the interview gets rolling.

    From those various topics, and the others we touch on in-between, I left our conversation with a simple, yet powerful, take away. We all have roles to fill in building the world we want to see, and that we should work with those who are already on the path, or willing to join us, to make that happen. Time is short and shouldn’t waste the precious moments we have.
