Carolina Putnam is the founder and Director of Reviveolution, based in Peru that works with an intercultural team of Indigenous wisdom-keepers, inspiring leaders, and global pioneers committed to a socially and ecologically thriving world. Their on-the-ground projects involve ecological regeneration, organic farming, food security, community-centered initiatives, holistic land practices, eco-cultural education and the protection of Indigenous wisdom traditions. Born and raised in Louisiana, Carolina has been living full-time in Peru for the past 8 years. She is deeply passionate about the exploration of human potential and deeply committed to creating healthy lands, communities and ecosystems through intercultural engagement.
In this interview, Arty explored with Carolina: her “middle way” approach to farming and land management that combines ancient Indigenous wisdom with some modern technologies; some of her specific projects; the joys and difficulties of trying to be a cultural ally in someone else’s culture; and her relationship with a Q’ero maestro.
