Anna the Urban Nanna talks Rental Permaculture
Dec 14, 2020 Season 2 Episode 11

Could jam be your gateway to lost skills? It was for Anna, aka The Urban Nanna, who started making jams and preserves as an act of self care, only to end up inspiring thousands of people to reclaim forgotten skills of frugality and everyday resourcefulness.

Anna's greatest joy is watching those around her experience aha! moments, and has a guiding belief that change comes from a strong and recognised personal intent.

If anyone can get you excited to exercise practical skills and community building -- even in the smallest city rental -- it's Anna, with her upfront honesty and acceptance of mistakes.

So join us in this raucous chat with a truly kindred futuresteader, where you'll gain serious solidarity and life smarts between peals of laughter.

  • Creating a community corner that people clamber to connect with.
  • Creating a glut of giving. Sharing the abundance, sharing toys, sharing books.

  • The biological imperative for success is to survive, thrive and reproduce.
