"If there’s a world here in a hundred years, it’s going to be saved by tens of millions of little things. The powers-that-be can break up any big thing they want. They can corrupt it or co-opt it from the inside, or they can attack it from the outside. But what are they going to do about 10 million little things? They break up two of them, and three more like them spring up!"
- Pete Seeger, in YES! Magazine

Publicize Permaculture Efforts

The project:
Tour permaculture training program, and help spread the word about the relatively new venture.

3 hours

Why bother?
While working on my next book, I learned about Quail Springs Learning Oasis & Permaculture Farm, a unique endeavor to provide a learning grounds for people interested in acquiring hands-on training involving living symbiotically with the land. Today the girls and I toured it to help spread the word.

Worth it?
It's a very interesting place full of people we found quite friendly and welcoming. Their living environment feels healthy and relaxed. If more of us could feel so relaxed and healthy in our homes, I believe the world would be a better place. Perhaps by helping to spread the word, Quail Springs will continue to fulfill its own 200-year plan of creating a sustainable community.
