Summary of Wendell Berry; The Unsettling of America, Culture and Agriculture

Posted on October 31, 2009 at 3:43pm 2 Comments

Just finished reading “The Unsettling of America, Culture and Agriculture” by Wendell Berry. His writings make so much sense as to make a complete mockery of what commercial agriculture has become in our modern age. I doubt anyone has done such a thorough job of explaining just how deep the erosive fissures run in industrial agriculture, or “agri-business” as it is known in his book. He weaves together the failed policies and practices of the “get big, or get out” era of farm consolidation… Continue

Happy Birthday David!  Seed swap in planning stages for 3rd or 4th weekend of Jan...We are looking for a new location.  Most likely we'll need help setting up tables & chairs & takedown too.

I'll be traveling with my tent & garden hand tools to warmer lands from Jan-March!  Give a call if you come to the islands!

Nice profile pic. It's very expensive. Photographers make twice what models do, so you can subtract the $20,160 from the $40,320 and send me $20,160. As you can see, I take my own profile pictures ; )

ha ha Don't know if you're joking or serious. Probably both! Well, i can take it down if you want, but i think it's a good one. I didn't know it was going to be in the slideshow rotation, gez! opt out?

Hi David,
I'm going out to the farm today to check on the beans. But last year they took forever to come up (it was dry) and I planted them late, so I wouldn't worry about it too much. I'll give you a report. Are you moved yet? I was trying to coordinate getting you and Heather out to my fields but it's too chaotic to coordinate with others...maybe when my crazy census work schedule is over in a few weeks.

Just composted my Tyfon cover crop out at sandies and put in tomatoes. the cover crop looked awsome! (but no buckwheat seemed to have sprouted & I thought I'd planted some). I'm sensing some of my buckwheat seeds are not very viable.....I"m understanding now how important the actual mix of seeds is in the seed balls... we really needed to have somthing that not only could act as nurse crops, but also grow fat root in the seedball fling for sure will scrounge some radish or tyfon to add to mix...I've not yet done my second toss....Let me know about the hulu hoe, or if you need a loan of the broad fork in the future.
