Being Will and Alone with Callie North

I can’t begin to tell you how much I looked forward to interviewing this woman. I watched her on the Alone Show and was blown away by how she approached going out into the wild Alone. She is a true inspiration. Her love or the planet can only rub off on you. It became talk about the practical and down to earth ways of connecting - and why it is important. About Callie: Folk Herbalist. Songstress. Gardener. Witch. Magic Maker. Seeker. Life Enthusiast.   Born and raised on Lopez Island, Callie spent her formative years living a nature-based lifestyle in the Pacific Northwest. Her love of the outdoors and relationship with sacred plant medicine led her to open Pachamama Apothecary in the spring of 2016. Shortly after the shop opened, Callie was blessed with the opportunity to spend 72 days living alone in the foothills of the Andes Mountains in Patagonia, Argentina. She fished, foraged and relied completely on the land for survival. Her journey can be viewed on Season 3 of ALONE, on the History Channel.

Going Zero Waste, with Bea Johnsin

I interviewed Bea Johnson for the first time four years ago. At that time zero waste was beginning to grow. Today it is not only for the *fanatics* who like? to chill, it is becoming a well known and even more importantly - integratable life style. In our family we are still not close to zero Waste. But we have made many changes and are working our way there slowly. As you will hear Bea talk about the 5 R's, I know where I still feel challenged - the refuse one. We don't buy a lot. But we say yes to way too much stuff we don't need. I feel fueled and filled again with inspiration after speaking to her. And even though you may not feel called to go *all the way*, I guarantee you will be called to make a few changes in your home. If we all did just a fraction of what she is doing, I can hardly imagine how it could shift things around. For more info go to www.zerowastehome.com
