      As someone who is new to the Permaculture Podcast, I’ve found myself very impressed with this wonderful podcast. It wasn’t just Hunter’s inspirational take on the ideas presented here, but also the fact that she diverged from what has become an undertone of helplessness in the climate change discussion. So often the public hears a vast amount of apocalyptic revelations and no clear course of action to be taken by the individual. Corporations and governments are given a stern tsk-tsk while the rest of humanity is supposed to be personally ashamed, which does nothing to help the Earth’s current condition. Finally, simply, here are rational and reasonable things that we as individuals can do to start changing ourselves and the world around us for the better. Most people aren’t willing to drastically change their lifestyle, but everyone can start by doing one thing. Simple, brilliant!
