THE REGENERATIVE HOUR: Passion, persistence, purpose and time for tea

A regenerative and refreshing conversation with Matt Purbrick and Megan Blair about community, time, and where we are heading in the new Regenerative Decade.

Matt Purbrick is co-author of the special recipe-and-guide books ‘Grown & Gathered’ and ‘The Village’.

Megan Blair is a member of the Transition Street Geelong movement, reader and user of Matt’s and Lentil’s two beautiful recipe books, mum to four children, and also co-owner of the blog Our Life Our Way.

“It’s time to get on with the living part, right? Sitting around the table and enjoying that cup of tea. It is about stopping. It is about taking the money value off time. It is about actually realising that creating idle spaces is one of the most important things we can do. We need to take these times, we need to have these experiences – and we need to make these shifts. It’s time now to do that next bit of work that actually starts to really shift things,” says Matt Purbrick in the podcast.

“We need to focus now. We all need to actually do our bit. We are going to grow those backyard gardens in our front yards, and we are going to start opening our doors and embrace Together, because we are facing a systemic collapse together, and we need to address it together.”
~ Matt Purbrick, co-author of ‘Grown & Gathered’, in The Regenerative Hour

After the talk with Matt and Megan, we play three video clips from social media:

Professor Gem Bendell‘s opening speech at Extinction Rebellion’s week of action in London in April 2019, an excerpt of George Monbiot‘s call for revolution in the tv comedy show Frankie Boyle’s New World Order, and Prince Ea‘s poem, Will This Be Humanity’s Fate

Acknowledgement

We at The Sustainable Hour would like to pay our respect to the traditional custodians of the land on which we are broadcasting, the Wathaurong People, and pay our respect to their elders, past, present and future.

The traditional owners lived in harmony with the environment and with the climate for hundreds of generations. It is not clear – yet – that as European settlers we have demonstrated that we can live in harmony for hundreds of generations, but it is clear that we can learn from the indigenous, traditional owners of this land.

When we talk about the future, it means extending our respect to those children not yet born, the generations of the future – remembering the old saying that…

The decisions currently being made around Australia to ignore climate change are being made by those who won’t be around by the time the worst effects hit home. How utterly disgusting, disrespectful and unfair is that?
