Life Off The Grid

Have you thought about life off the grid?

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
