Episode 26: Shane Keller - Regenerative Agriculture, Economics, Climate Change & the American Delusion
Shane Keller is a local regenerative agriculturalist and is currently founding the Liscom Hill Permaculture Project outside of Blue Lake, California. In this conversation we discuss how his love for nature began, America’s plantation economy complex, the limits and trap of dualistic thinking, the importance of spaciousness and non-doing, climate change and intentionally participating in the carbon drawdown, the collapse of the American delusion, collaborative business models, and the benefits the Liscom Hill Permaculture Project envisions offering the Humboldt community.

“The dualistic mindset is truly a prison. It creates a horrific kind of ping pong match within one’s own psyche. It’s an internal battle of sorts.”
