Homeschool in the Garden with Lucy Legan

by | December 27, 2023 | Permaculture Podcast | 1 comment

Join me this episode for an exploration into homeschooling with permaculture author-educator-activist Lucy Legan.

Tune in on Spotify, Google Podcasts, Youtube or any of your other preferred podcast platforms.

I’ve interviewed Lucy before on this podcast after the release of her book ‘Planet Schooling‘, a fantastic conversation about re-conceiving what education is for, how she teaches permaculture, has created living learning centres and school gardens plus her process of writing!

Now I interview her after the release of her free eBook ‘How to Start Homeschooling Your Children‘ – a fantastic resource to approach the (sometimes daunting) journey of homeschooling.

In this conversation, we dive into everything around homeschooling – all of our stories as both professionals in permaculture & ecoliteracy education and as mothers homeschooling their children (and in Lucy’s case, grandchildren).

If you’ve ever considered homeschooling your kids or in the process, this is a must listen!

I had a wonderful time catching up with Lucy – as we said, if we lived close to each other, you’d constantly find us in each others’ gardens!

If you’re interested in helping us send a box of Lucy’s book ‘Planet Schooling’ over to the Permayouth hubs in refugee settlements in East Africa, we would appreciate any donations! Send it through the Ethos Foundation (100% goes directly to the project) and leave us a message to let us know it’s for this initiative.

One of Lucy’s great resources mentioned in the podcast is the card deck and guidebook ‘Seed to Plate‘ – an inspiration and guide to learn how to save seeds. To learn more about Lucy’s work and find more resources, check out her website –
