I had a chance to chat once again with Diego Footer from Creative Destruction, formally known as Permaculture Voices, on his podcast series featuring “honest, hard conversations about farming, business, and life with those trying to make a living doing something that they love and dealing with life in the process.” This time, we spoke at length about ideas from the recent Land as Insurance blog series:
“There’s a lot to worry about out there in the world right now – climate change, GMOs, the financial system, debt, terrorism, disease, water insecurity, a fragile food system.
What if you could insure yourself against some of these worries?
And get that insurance through land, land as insurance..
It would be a way to take insurance back into our control and put the fragile dollars into an anti-fragile system – an ecosystem.
Today Rob Avis of Adaptive Habitat and I will be discussing the idea of owning land as insurance against disaster in depth.
We’ll get into models that don’t exist yet, and ways that anyone can start to create some anti-fragility in their life now, regardless of where you live and whether you have land or not.
I guarantee, this one will get your wheels turning.”
In less than 10 years, Rob & Michelle Avis left Calgary’s oil fields and retooled their engineering careers to help clients and students design integrated systems for shelter, energy, water, waste and food, all while supporting local economy and regenerating the land. They’re now leading the next wave of permaculture education, teaching career-changing professionals to become eco-entrepreneurs with successful regenerative businesses.
