About this episode's guest Michael Judd

Growing up between northern England and the Appalachian mountains of Maryland, Michael’s roots have been branched with diverse landscapes and fertile culture. Mix in a decade of running a grass roots non-profit in rural Latin America, heading up an arid lands research project in the dessert of SE Spain, and extensive study at the New York Botanic Garden you end up with an eclectic designer that melds form, function, and productivity seamlessly.

Michael’s beginning with whole system design began with an opportunity to live with the last of the Lacondon Mayans in southern Mexico along the Guatemalan border. Here he experienced the ancient design practices of the Mayans that ingeniously mimic natures patterns to create functional landscapes. About the same time he discovered a parallel design system coming out of Australia, “permaculture,” that applies similar landscape use of the Mayans but adapted to the modern world. Combining designs in 2001 he created Project Bona Fide on Ometepe Island, SW Nicaragua.

About this Week's Guest, Bill Catherall

While helping to plant a family vegetable garden in the spring of 2011, Bill Catherall was thinking about pollination and the plight of honey bees.

Having grown up with other family members who kept bees, he knew a backyard hive could be done, but knew nothing about it.

So began the study, research, and ultimate obsession. He got his first hive in 2012 and began documenting his growth and beekeeping practice on his YouTube channel, TheBeeVlog.
Over 190 videos later, TheBeeVlog now has 12,000+ subscribers and over 1,000,000 views.

About this episode's guest, Amy Stross

At age 33, I shocked my colleagues by abruptly leaving my career as a high school teacher to literally play in the dirt. The reality was that my actual work in the classroom didn’t quite match the ideals that had led me to become a teacher. My health began to decline and my personal relationships suffered due to my unhappiness.

In a daring moment of desperation, I quit my job. I began helping to manage a local CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program that feeds 100 families, and I also took on work as a gardening apprentice, though I had never gardened before. The apprenticeship was supposed to be a temporary agent of healing for a dissatisfied soul; a pit stop before jumping back into the job market.

Yet the more I engaged in gardening and the art of homemaking, the more I began to respect modern homesteading as a viable alternative to work outside the home. The book Radical Homemakers: Reclaiming Domesticity from a Consumer Culture assured me that I wasn’t the only one to make this transition from a professional career to homemaker.
