Join me this episode for an exploration into homeschooling with permaculture author-educator-activist Lucy Legan.
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 – https://planetschooling.com/
