SUMMERTIME Throwbacks Hannah Maloney on following your shen!
Show Notes

Summer is for going slow with your people. We're making the most of this too here at FS HQ. But don't worry,  we've created a short & sexy summer season  of thought provocation by delving  into the archives & reloading some of the best conversations we've recorded over the last two years.

If there's a human who represents the quintessential qualities of living like tomorrow matters, it just might be Hannah Maloney. 

A former front line picketer, Hannah transitioned to a more sustainable approach to advocacy for climate action and First Nations justice when she founded Good Life Permaculture and is now based in Tassie on Muwinina country where days of voluntary simplicity provide time for her community which she collaborates with to teach, design and live with love. 

Hannah is a radical homemaker who has just released a book, blogs her knowledge for all to learn from and has recently forayed into the world of television presenting on Gardening Australia.
