Moving Outside

A very positive movement that is currently happening in the USA. They are young and educated; interested in the environment and real food; willing to learn a forgotten job; ready to work hard. They are the Greenhorns. Their book, Greenhorns: 50 Dispatches from the New Farmers’ Movement was published this year by Storey Publishing.

I’ll be blogging more about one of my favorite chapters soon because it resonated to an artist’s life in some way. But here, I’ll share two wonderful lists from the chapter, Farming in the Web of Interconnectedness by Sarajane Snyder.

a good list
human health
community engagement
cultural knowledge
ecological restoration
political empowerment
economic stability
spiritual enlivening
(dependent on networks of relationships & connections)

What Does the World Need?
Listening, Slow, Less, Breath, Sharing. Free farm stands. More art space. Less consumer space. Reskilling.
