Resilience: “the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties; toughness.”
For some, preparing for the unexpected has been a way of life for years.
We visit (via their cameras) permaculture farmers in Tulsa, Oklahoma growing much of their food in backyard hoop houses, a rainwater harvester collecting and reusing water at home and off the streets of Tucson, Arizona, an A-frame cabin builder at home surrounded by the wilderness of Central Mexico, a family in Kauai, Hawaii living off the land in their hand-built tiny home of recycled materials.
They bring us some tips from their homesteads or city apartments (like instructions for a living wall from recycled drink bottles from our friends in Mexico City).
This is part two of a three-part series. Part one: Pandemic-proof collaboration to (re)build resilience
