Peter Ingram is a Wagga Wagga local burner, an art-builder, is part of the ranger and fire safety team, and the indigenous liaison for Burning Seed. Pete also dedicates his time and services to the community with his 'welcome to the country' smoke ceremonies that opens the burning seed regional burn. In this episode we get chatting about some of the topics and issues that is near and dear to him such as the indigenous smoking ceremonies, the ecology of the Australian forestry, destructive bushfires, building spectacular art, and what the burn community means to him. Also in this episode we review KiwiBurn 2020: Eclectic Decade with Diia Bourke (aka Little Bee).
