Featuring Erin Beagle of Roots to Harvest

Let’s get to ‘yes’; changing our understanding of success; why driving a bus is better than going it alone; how climate change in Thunder Bay is like the trash compactor in Star Wars; giving people a place they can claim ownership within is powerful healing.

Transcript

-Roots to Harvest is like the bus. And I get to drive the bus. It is really nice to already have the vehicle to be doing some change making in. I'm not trying to be a voice on my own. There's a little bit of cred behind me.

-Let’s get to 'Yes'. Then make sure it works for those people who said yes, respecting that we’re in this together and check in, look for feedback, follow through.

-The Climate Crisis in Thunder Bay is like the trash compactor in Star WarsYou don’t notice the walls are coming in until it’s like, "Shit! I’m feeling the Squeeze!"

-Who is going to feel Climate Change in Thunder Bay is not going to be the decision makers. People in lower socio-economic states feel it first.

-What would the Elder’s Table Say? What would they say about what our next step should be?
