"A way to replenish one's soul and connect with heartening magic is to just start with five square feet of your house in which everything is made by someone you know. Knowing who did the painting, who grew this apple, who made this cup, who grew the herbs that made the tea, that's intimacy. Reverent living is essential for our effectiveness in the world."

"This is our grace: To be a note
In the exact chord that animates creation."
-- Deena Metzger

"Civilization has been a permanent dialogue between human beings & water."
-- Paolo Lugari, Gaviotas
"There are two spiritual dangers in not owning a farm. One is the danger of supposing that breakfast comes from the grocery, and the other that heat comes from the furnace."

"...the greatest change we need to make is from consumption to production, even if on a small scale, in our own gardens. If only 10% of us do this, there is enough for everyone.

Hence the futility of revolutionaries who have no gardens, who depend on the very system they attack, and who produce words and bullets, not food and shelter."
-- Bill Mollison

"The most remarkable feature of this historical moment on Earth is not that we are on the way to destroying the world - we've actually been on the way for quite awhile.

--Joanna Macy

"Agriculture is the foundation of modern civilization. Without a steady supply of clean, life-giving food, we have neither the leisure nor the energy to develop industry, science or art. Worldwide and in particular in the United States, our foundation has deteriorated dangerously. It requires immediate and fundamental restructuring.....the need to share the experience of farming with everyone who understands that our relationship with nature and the ways that we use the land will determine the future of the earth. The problems of agriculture and the environment belong not just to a small minority of active farmers, they are the problems of all humanity, and thousands of people are searching for new ways and new solutions."
-- Farms of Tomorrow, by Trauger Groh and Steven McFadden
"Taking a new step, uttering a new word is what people fear most."
-- Fyodor Dostoyevsky

-- Fukuoka

-- David Suzuki
