Green Dreamer: Sustainability and Regeneration From Ideas to Life


Oct 24, 2019

Rob Avis, along with his wife Michelle, are the owners and lead instructors at Verge Permaculture, an internationally recognized and award-winning permaculture design company from Calgary, Alberta. They have taught permaculture to thousands of students, offering expertise in building science and appropriate technology as well as rainwater harvesting, agro-ecology, ecosystem engineering, soil regeneration, and wastewater treatment.

 

Rob and Michelle Avis also founded Adaptive Habitat, a unique and leading-edge property design and management company that leverages the couple's collective experience in engineering, project management, ecological design, and sustainable technologies.

 

In this podcast episode, Rob sheds light on the importance of learning about bioregionality so that we can better support the regeneration of our local ecosystems and divorce our globalized food system from its reliance on fossil fuels; why we need to rebuild community-based self-sufficiency for sustainability and not have to depend on a centralized food system, power system, water supply, and so forth; and more.
