Episode 026 - Raya Cole: Women Transforming Rural India With Permaculture

In this episode we talk with Raya Cole about her work with permaculture and water harvesting in many villages of rural India. Raya has worked with Aranya Agricultural Alternatives for five years on the ground teaching, designing, and organizing community efforts to restore water tables and improve nutrition. Raya has a lot of insight into the complicated dynamics of making lasting changes in a region where water, food, and soil have all been critically degraded over the last half-century. Now at a breaking point with depleted water supplies and the failure of chemical agriculture, many rural poor are open to the possibilities for sustenance that permaculture provides. Raya's links: https://livingecology.org/ https://permacultureindia.org Raya full bio: Raya Cole has been involved with organic agriculture, permaculture, and sustainable systems and social justice since 1996.

Episode 024: Ridhi D'Cruz - Repairing the City's Social Fabric

In this episode we dive into the social aspects of using design to repair the fragmented social fabric of the urban landscape. The City Repair Project in Portland, Oregon has been working for a quarter century on making places within the city that help to bring together communities and establish new rituals and celebrations around community empowerment. The results are beautiful and artistic public spaces woven throughout the city, created by residents, and a change in the feel and functionality of neighborhoods towards safer and more cohesive communities. Rhidi explains how the qualities of the village are being brought back into a city grid that was designed for the extraction of capital and not the encouragement of life and health of communities.
