After contracting Lyme's Disease, Kt's farming passion had to come to an end after 20 years. Kt fostered her hope - a key quality of any palliative carer - through redesigning her life and her livelihood around her new condition using permaculture as her launching point, eventually finding value in teaching and sharing permaculture through her artwork and through mentoring on the Diploma in Applied Permaculture Design.


In this episode you will learn about the value of a planned death; how to apply your design skills to new and uncomfortable scenarios; taking an intersectional approach to ecological design and, of course, the importance of finding your niche in crafting your own unique, regenerative livelihood.
