Practising good ancestry

Nodding, ooing and ahhing while you read is one response. Assuming and acting on what you have learnt or are seeking to learn is another.

At REAL, we want you to become your new knowledge. Embed it in everyday practice, share it with others. Love who you can become in the face of your new skills. Seek to share your experience or lead by example. Become who you admire in others!

What is good ancestry?

Looking back in time and giving thanks to those who came before is becoming more and more transparent and accepted. Looking forward, being empathetic and anticipating the needs of future generations requires a different momentum with an evolving set of visionary glasses.

What might generations (of all living entities) need in the future?

At REAL, we like to make decisions and choices that minimise the impact of our actions on the ability of future generations to live a sustainable lifestyle. Many of these actions are around resource use, particularly shortening the food chain and applying all our resources effectively. But they also impact our desire to support community connection and our decisions on the end-of-life phase of resources.

In short, we want to be mindful of what we leave for the next generation. Read more about our plans to be better ancestors in our blog here.

Will you join us?

We invite you to expand your learning with us – attend a REAL by day event. Expand your knowledge and grow your skills and understanding – it could be around composting and gardening, or fermenting and making sourdough! Our learning calendar and events are ever-changing, and influenced by our community.

Become a good ancestor by upskilling in one of our small-group workshops by day, and dining with us by night.

Our aim is to build a community of knowledge that can be kept alive and passed through generations to come.
