Lost Nation Orchard


We have lived our lives by the assumption that what was good for us would be good for the world. We have been wrong. We must change our lives so that it will be possible to live by the contrary assumption, that what is good for the world will be good for us. 
Wendell Berry

You Tell Me

Check in with Michael if any of this interests. We can explore what a periodic internship looks like for those who can be available starting in early spring. Locals will be put on an 'invite list' when a community work day is envisioned . . . and it's entirely optional if you respond. 


Though the problems of the world are increasingly complex,
the solutions remain embarrassingly simple.
