We invited Joe Brewer on the show again as part of our regenerative series. We had him last year, and we talked about cultural evolution and designing regenerative cultures. Since then Joe moved to a rural community in Colombia, started the Earth Regenerators Study Group, and wrote a new book.

In this episode we talk about his new book called The Design Pathway for Regenerating Earth.

We also talk about what it’s like to live in economic collapse, how to re-establish relationships with nature and community, and how something as important as Earth Regeneration can be done with a sense of child-like playfulness.
