When we read or watch the news, sometimes we can find ourselves bombarded with facts about climate breakdown, and the threat of catastrophe can loom terrifyingly large. The sheer overwhelming nature of the problem can cause many of us to shut down and turn away, even as the most dedicated activists among us burn themselves out. Yet rather than scold or use shock tactics to try to promote change, permaculture educator and group facilitator Bonita Eloise Ford addresses the topic with gentleness, encouragement, and practicality.

Part memoir and part meditative workbook, Embers of Hope invites us on a personal journey to better connect with ourselves and the living Earth, offering perspective shifts that help us acknowledge our sorrow, ignite our hope, and consider everyday acts to strengthen our communities. Together, we can nurture the small forces that may radically transform our world.


“With open-hearted generosity, Bonita Eloise Ford weaves a pathway with permaculture, energy healing, the Indigenous wisdom of her teachers, and her own life experience, and then guides the reader through a series of exercises to enable us all to face the challenges of a world in ecological collapse and climate chaos with clarity and meaning. That is how, as the fire dies, we find the Embers of Hope.” —Maddy Harland, editor of Permaculture Magazine and author of Fertile Edges: Regenerating Land, Culture and Hope
