Pip Podcast #8: women as change makers

The latest Pip Podcast is a special one, to celebrate the 2017 International Permaculture Convergence & Conference in Hyderabad, India, where Pip Editor Robyn Rosenfeldt will be speaking on the topic of women as change makers in Permaculture.

To celebrate we gathered together three of most well-known (and wonderful) women permies we could think of – Su Dennett, Kirsten Bradley and Meg Ulman – all connected to the world renowned permaculture demonstration site,  Melliodora Hepburn Permaculture Gardens (and handily, they all work on site at the same time each week, so we could gather them together for this podcast!)

We put the question to them: how can women lead the change to a permaculture future?

In this podcast Kirsten (of Milkwood Permaculture), Su (of Melliodora) and Meg (of Artist as Family) talk in depth and truthfully about their lives, and how they design them with permaculture in mind. They talk about the challenges of weaving parenting, a “career” and home life into their vision for a better world.

These three change-making women give us an inspiring peek into their lives and we hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

The Pip Podcast goes in depth into the topics we explore in our magazine – sign up to get it in your feed at soundcloud.com or through iTunes.

    How I enjoyed this podcast !! The three women verbalise so well the feelings I have about living this homesteading life; the constant visitors especially ! Oh phew, how glad I am to hear they feel the same way as I do and it’s not just me feeling anti social. I also try to have a project that I can go on with if someone is visiting & we’re sitting at the kitchen table drinking coffee. After an hour I move about and offer they can come out to help me in the garden if they want because I have work to do. Usually this is when they decide they have to get going. Now I always say that I’work from home. I DO work here, but it’s so often not taken seriously. I never allow impromptu visitors to just turn up and expect a cuppa, I have a diplomatic way of moving them on. “Oh let me know when you’re coming next time and if I’m not working we can have a cuppa” Also, friends think they can always come here for coffee, but I often now arrange to meet them at a coffee shop. That way I get an opportunity away from farm for a mental health relaxation break and can leave when I’ve had enough company. Devious means I know but so very necessary.Thank you for this wonderful podcast. It’s lifted some weight off my shoulders. XX
