Celebrate Earth Day 2013 with an inspirational discussion with Shannon Hayes, author of Radical Homemaking, and Lisa Reagan. Hayes shares her research and interviews with families who are making the switch to sustainable, holistic lifestyles that are consistent with their values. In this interview Hayes shares:
1- The seven skills of a radical homemaker
2- How to create a values and dreams board with your partner so you can support each other on decision making
3- How becoming sustainable does not mean going to live in log cabins and eating bark
4- How Radical Homemakers, aka Cultural Creatives, are changing the world just by being themselves and living fearlessly.
5- The practical details of living sustainably, including living without health insurance
Shannon Hayes writes and farms with three generations of her family on Sap Bush Hollow Farm in West Fulton, NY, where she grew up. The family raises all-natural grassfed lamb, beef, pork, and poultry. She holds a BA in creative writing from Binghamton University, and a Masters and PhD in Sustainable Agriculture and Community Development from Cornell.
Shannon is the author of four books: The Grassfed Gourmet, The Farmer and the Grill, Radical Homemakers and Long Way on a Little: An Earth Lover’s Companion for Enjoying Meat, Pinching Pennies and Living Deliciously. All are published by Left to Write Press, a company that Shannon and her husband Bob started as a way to enable them to live in Schoharie County without having to sell-out to corporate media.
