Even if we’d like to think otherwise, people are closely linked to nature.  When nature suffers, in time we do too.  Understanding that our relationship with nature is out of balance, Patrick Lydon has committed to sharing how we might embrace natural systems for our own, and Mother Earth’s, benefit.

In this episode, Jackson chats with Patrick— the writer behind CityAsNature.org and The Possible City Substack — about natural farming, pocket farms, community engagement, and using human waste to power our cities.
