#36 Nurtured by Nature with Shaun Doyle
For this episode, we have Shaun Doyle. Over the last four and a half years, he's been working on a project called THE RENATURE WAY. The Renature Way is an online program to help people tune into their internal connection with Nature in their everyday lives. The idea to create the Renature Way came in a period of his life where he was experiencing many stress and well-being issues. Even with an extensive background in the health and fitness industry, he struggled to overcome them. The one thing that always seemed to make things better was when he regularly spent time in Nature. The more he learned about connecting with Nature, the more it became clear that the main underlying issue was not so much the stress in his life or what he did or didn't do for his well-being. It had more to do with an internal disconnect from Nature. With more and more research around this, it becomes pretty clear this is a BIG reason why so many of us struggle with stress and various ailments today. Without a feeling of connection (which we can feel anywhere), disharmony will occur on some level. Meaning stress is more easily activated, knocking us around internally preventing us from feeling good and well regularly. Creating a deeper bond with Nature has helped him get through the most stressful challenges of his life and re-discover his spark for life once again. It's so exciting to be able to share this knowledge with others now. The link for more info about Shaun’s incredible offering is: https://renaturingyoureverydayways.com/introvideoandcourseinfo

#6 Turn off the TV and get out into the Garden talking all things Agri/Aquaponics with Justin Mason
In this episode, we have Justin Mason, the founder of Agri Aquaponics. Agriculture has been in Justin’s blood since a boy. Having been working on a farm since a teenager, he gained drive, passion, and purpose in toiling the land and seeing it transform. After realising that so many valuable spaces have been wasted by people, Justin came up with an idea to improve the productiveness in the use of space: self-watering, mobile gardens that you can place on a patio, balcony, back courtyard, etc. Then the business was born: Agri Aquaponics. Agri Aquaponics designs and maintains organic aquaponic and hydroponic gardens. Justin’s business aims to help people grow food anywhere by creating mobile herb and vegetable gardens using hydroponic and aquaponic principles. The uniqueness of their gardens is self-watering and self-supported: the gardens can be powered by solar panels and batteries, allowing people to grow organic food with zero carbon footprint. In this episode, Justin tells us about his creative idea of mobile gardens, his insights into agriculture as well as his life experience.
