Escape to Fort Galt: A Resilient Community in Chile


Brought up in the Bible Belt Prairies of Canada, Gabriel Scheare has come a long way; both philosophically and physically. Originally attracted to Chile by the promise of a freedom-loving community, which fell apart in grand fashion, Gabriel and partners have learned the lessons and are creating community catering to entrepreneurs and freelancers in Valdivia, Chile.

In this episode we hear about both the background and vision for Fort Galt–as well as the Exosphere at which Gabriel and his partners first met.
