This is an atypical episode of the show as you can probably tell from the title. In this conversation, I sit down with Joshua Hughes of VerdEnergia Pacifica and Blacksheep Regenerative Resource Management to talk about the intersection of permaculture and politics to engage, get involved, and change the system to create the world we want to live in.
Yes, Joshua has strong views on the state of the world and why things are as bad as they are. Depending on your position, you may not like some of what he has to say but stick with us. This isn’t a left versus right fight, but we do have to talk about some of that to frame the conversation. In the end, this is about sovereignty, consent, and compassion: what we have in common with one another that we can organize around and fight together, as a community, for what we love.
You can find Joshua on Twitter @FarmEvolution42 or by searching Revolutionary Farmer. As he also says at the end of our time together you can email him: firstname.lastname@example.org. In the show notes I also link to his other projects, and our earlier interviews together.
Reach out to us if we can make a difference and to continue the conversation. Leave a comment in the show notes, call me: 717-827-6266, email: email@example.com, or write:

The next episode is a conversation with Clare Kenny of The Mudgirls to continue our discussion about Natural Building.
Until then, spend each day getting engaged and change the systems that matter to you while taking care of Earth, yourself, and each other.
