New Video Highlights New Society

We were honoured and excited when Oliver Goshey, host of the Abundant Edge podcast, where he interviews leaders and change-makers in the worlds of permaculture, natural building, and regenerative living, reached out and asked if he could create a video about New Society Publishers. "I feel like more people should know about the good things you are doing."

Oliver visited us on Gabriola to spend the day getting to know and film the New Society team. The result is the video below.
