You probably define where you live by a number, a street and a zip code. But how much do you know about your local biosphere? Noted ecologist Peter Berg will ignite your curiosity about what bioregionalism is, and help you learn how to support the natural systems that ultimately support all life. You may associate changing habits for a better Earth with giving things up. Yet, as Berg points out: "With bioregional consciousness, you can achieve what people save thousands of dollars to buy. The same values that are used by art collectors and antique dealers are the values of people with bioregional consciousness." In other words, learning to reinhabit the region in which you live can bring back the joy, the wonder, and the connection to nature that everyone is starved for. (hosted by Michael Toms)
