Lets bring neighbors together, develop practical solutions & improve the quality of life for all.
We are neighbors learning to care for the land & waters around us. Some of us are increasing our skills in gardening, energy & water independence, raising animals, caring for forests & meadows, preserving food, approaching zero-waste & recycling, and creating permaculture projects for a more resilient, inter-dependent, respectful lifestyle..
Together we can create neighborhood work-parties, information gatherings, potlucks, carpooling, or write a Discussion on our projects & successes.
We each are leaders & followers, learning to work cooperatively & combining our best thinking.
