    Today Steven Martyn, a Canadian permaculturist, gardener, primitive skills practitioner, and teacher, joins me to talk about his journey to write The Story of the Madawaska Forest Garden. After establishing a deep sense of place by learning the history of the land and peoples he called home, Steven returned to the world to share what he learned. This narrative walks us through to learn about what it means to tend to earth as a sacred gardener.

      This episode told me what I really needed to hear today. I recently started a new job that requires I work in a climate controlled concrete building (an archive, essentially) working with metadata on computers. I love it, but I feel like gardening during every break. It IS ok to be a hypocrite (or, in my case have conflicting yet equally passionate guiding forces).
