Show Notes

In this episode, we spoke to Morag Gamble, a global permaculture and ecovillage ambassador, speaker and educator. Morag spoke to James and Angelo about her family’s journey into eco-village life and how the new patterns of life she wove in that place over the course of two decades have provided abundant nourishment and resilience for her family and community during the COVID-19 pandemic.
