Welcome to Better Ancestors, and our weekly video series throughout 2021. This series is dedicated to telling the stories of those amazing people in our world who are trying to be better ancestors to future generations. The planet is experiencing catastrophic environmental disaster, and it is up to us to think long term and take action to ensure a sustainable and healthy future for all of humanity. Using the stories of those already leading the charge in sustainability as inspiration, we should all ask ourselves, what can I do to be a better ancestor?
In episode 7, Better Ancestors visits Byron Birss and Backyard Paradise, his emerging permaculture heaven. Over just a year and a half, Byron has been able to learn from scratch how to create a regenerative food forest, and is documenting and sharing the journey with thousands of people on social media. While Backyard Paradise is only a small piece of land, the inspiration that Byron offers through the telling of his story digitally can have a widespread and lasting impact for creating a better future. He is now also offering consultations and workshops to contribute what he’s learned to the wider community.
