Those of us working in permaculture and other regenerative practices believe in and design for the inherent abundance of nature.
However, for a variety of reasons that presumption of abundance diminishes significantly when it comes to other forms of wealth in our lives.
In this discussion with Laura Oldanie, we explore ways that align with our regenerative ethos to (responsibly) tap, steward, and grow the wealth and abundance that surrounds us.
We start by looking at how we can utilize the eight forms of capital (outlined by Gaia University MSc graduates Gregory Landua and Ethan Roland Soloviev) to create a sense of “enough” in our lives and communities.
Then we examine personal finance through a permaculture lens, applying some permaculture principles to our money. Lastly, we delve into some of the innovative and meaningful new ways we can invest and manage our money that help solve our major social and environmental challenges instead of exacerbating them.
