"I’ve facilitated at and attended many conferences where connections are made for a moment, but their potential never comes to fruition. The Offers and Needs Market, so graciously offered as a tool from the Post Growth Institute, changes that paradigm and connects us to the next level of thriving in community."

Small Earth Institute
"Working with a small group of deep ecologists, educators and permaculturists, I have starting the Small Earth Institute to promote deep ecology, nature connection and regenerative design in education. I owe the seed of this project to a small essay a long time ago on the Post Growth Institute's website which questioned how we should 'up-skill' for the future, and set me on this journey to create emergent schools."
