“Let us, then, be up and doing,” Longfellow wrote. “With a heart for any fate; Still achieving, still pursuing, Learn to labor and to wait.”

"We belong to life, and nothing can separate us from the living body of earth." -- Joanna Macy

As we move from the old, destructive, extraction economy and false assumptions, to the new economy with new rules and ideas it is an exciting adventure that allows us to choose what works for us. We are witnessing the "Great Unraveling", this is required before we can build a new. The new economy... my son calls it the "Happiness" economy. The measure of success isn't GDP but how happy are you with who you are and what you are doing?

We support the Permaculture Principles:

  • Care of the Earth;
  • Care of the People;
  • Fair Share: Contribution of surplus time, money, and  energy back to achieve the above.

Simple but profound. These principles create great happiness for you and the next generations. An effort of regeneration!  Bob Marley said it best: "Don't Worry, Be Happy"!
