Calendar: June

Let become a month of neighborhood revival, a period of creativity and connectivity, a recurrent celebration of our common habitat; let June become a starting point for a society imbued with love and care.

Poem: Scales

Yes, we must bring society back to the human scale, away from the alienating anonymity of multiple-lane highways and global supply chains, away from military bases and financial centers.

Article: Starting a Revolution

The immediate past is not the best guidebook to the future. Why learn from wasteful, profit-driven practices, when we can learn from the patterns and processes of nature, from water, trees, and honey bees? Why let agribusiness ...

Poem: Nowhere

The lawns are burning, the houses are burning, and the asphalt roads are melting; nowhere to hide, nowhere to go; a crow is singing intensively; an unsustainable society is disappearing before our eyes.
