Bioneers conf


“People who force nature force themselves.  When we grow only wheat, we become dough.  If we seek only money, we become brass; and if we stay in the childhood of team sports, we become a stuffed leather ball.  Beware the monoculturist, in religion, health, farm, or factory.  He is driven mad by boredom, and can create war and try to assert power, because he is in fact, powerless.

To become a complete person, we must travel many paths, and to truly own anything we must first give it all away.  This is not a riddle.  Only those who share their multiple and varied skills, true friendships, and a sense of community and knowledge of the earth know they are safe wherever they go.

There are plenty of fights and adventures to hand: the fight against cold, hungry, poverty, ignorance, overpopulation and greed; adventures in friendship, humanity, applied ecology, and sophisticated design – which would be a far better life than you may be living now, and which would mean a life for our children.

There is no other path for us than that of cooperative productivity and community responsibility.  Take that path, and it will change your life in ways you cannot yet imagine.”

– Bill Mollison

    Nice galleries. Very clean looking site.

    Most of My problems arise whenever I start getting too complex and then I need to trim the fat so to speak. What template are you using? I really like that the photos in the header change whenever you go to a new page.

    P.S. I Love that you have a link to Lo Phi right on the home page! 😀 I miss my Fond Du Lac / Madtown family!

  2. Thank you for your resource! I really like what you’re writing here.

    We are sitting here with this marvelous man, your father, that would be Larry about to have dinner. He has introduced us to your website. Nice! He has not decided to introduce us yet. That time will come. Jokes! I get to hear a lot about what you do and your life. We share time at my man barn. Your life is so interesting and flows with the beat of my life. I’m anxious for you to see the gardening that we are doing. I would love to hear your take on it and advice how we could improve or expand the depth of our experience. It would just be fun to hang out with you and talk.
