New farms, Old ways

Posted by davidreed on October 6, 2011 at 3:16pm 1 Comment



I had a chance to visit one of the new kind of dairy farmers yesterday – the kind who fills a farm

This kind of farmer is fascinated with the way things work: how water and air flow through soil, how organic matter is built up or depleted, the impacts of plowing, the intricacies of grazing, the behavior of cows, chickens, predator hawks, shepherd…

BREATHING IN MT. RAINER





Harry was sitting on a bench near Puget Sound with a fixated stare 50-miles away at mammoth Mt. Rainer. He was feeling a connection, inwardly laughing, musing to himself: “we’re both part of the earth; she just happened to grow a bit larger than me.” He wondered if there was a way to make a tangible,… Continue

Running with the Salmon

Posted by Sh'mal Ellenberg on April 28, 2010 at 12:30pm 0 Comments

I wrote this story for an under 300 word contest. The story came to me after standing by a stream in a park outside of Seattle that had a sign about the stream, that fifty years

ago, during spawning season, the stream was filled with salmon bank to bank. Next

the otter in the park.…

The organic farming revolution...


"People will tell you the organic farming revolution that's taking place is about food safety or ecolgical concerns, but I think if you dig down deep, you'll find that the revolution is really about what people are missing in their lives: good food and a connection to the land, both of which puts us in touch with basic spiritual values."

from The Sun Magazine: "Earthly Delights, Cultivating a new Agricultural Revolution: An Interview with Michael Abelman", by Arnie Cooper, June 2003

I've been reading about soap making, but the lye used in many recipes looks like it's not to be trifled with. Is it necessary to use lye? What are some successful recipes? I dropped by Wayward Council in Gainesville and found some hand made soap…Continue
