Are you interested in learning more about Permaculture projects? How to plant a food forest? Regenerative design or ethnobotany? Would you like to learn about urban homesteading, organic gardening, and herbal remedies? Listen to Sustainable World Radio: Ecology & Permaculture Podcast and discover practical, earth-friendly and nature-based solutions that can lead us to a better world.

My new podcast The Plant Report: Every Plant Has A Story is about the wonderful world of plants. Each episode highlights one plant. I talk about its uses, how it grows, and some of its story. I’m really excited about The Plant Report because I am Plant Happy!!

Here’s a short bio:

Jill Cloutier is a radio producer, filmmaker, environmental educator and writer. I’ve been producing Sustainable World Radio since 2004… when people, after hearing the name of the podcast would say, “Perma- What!?”

After surviving my early 20’s and a short stint as a militant vegan and a Voice of Doom, “Worldwatch Institute says we have only 8 years left.”,  I realized that it’s much more fun to educate through laughter and positive energy than through guilt, fear, and gloom.

With over 10 years of experience in podcasting and filmmaking about Permaculture, sustainability and related topics, I  love to educate people about the natural world.

A Permaculture Design Course Graduate, I believe that Permaculture provides solutions to many of the problems facing us today. The Permaculture ethics sum up my approach to life: ‘Care for the Earth. Care for each other. Share the surplus.’

As an Environmental Educator at Explore Ecology: Environmental Education & Art Center, I taught classes on Healthy Watersheds,  Organic Gardening, Composting, Vermiculture, and Waste Reduction. One of the best days was of my life was when I received a thank you card from a second grader that said, “Dear Watershed Jill, Thank you for teaching me how it feels to take care of the Earth.”

I was the co-founder of Kale, Not Jail, a gardening program at the Santa Barbara Juvenile Hall where I grew organic plants with kids on probation and co-founder of The Santa Barbara Laughing Club where I loved to laugh away all of the stress caused by my constant worrying about the environment!
