At the heart of sustainability, lies the simple quest for a better way of life, now, and into the future.  Measured primarily in the balanced relationships between the three “E’s:” Economy, Ecology, and Equity.

Economy: to be self-renewing; foster local commodities; and ensure self- reliance.

Ecology:   to understand that nature has its threshold capacities, while protecting and building natural resources in order to create a holistic balance between man and nature.

Equity:     to provide full opportunity for access and engagement in activities, benefits, and invaluable decision-making strategies for a society.

========================================================


We seek to ensure that people’s needs, hopes, and dreams are obtainable through thorough understandings of these inter-dependencies.  Our mission is to build friendly and sustainable fellowships through the passionate exchanges of knowledge and shared expertise.

We do this in the spirit of community.  Every scheduled meeting begins with a pot-luck dinner in which we encourage you to share a part of your harvest or labor (a dish).  We laugh, we toast (BYOB), and we unwind from the day’s events as we enjoy our circle of camaraderie.  This repast is followed by a guest speaker’s appearance from a quantifiable expert in his or her field.  We learn.

From time to time, we travel to local areas in search of new skills, new finds, and new understandings: an organic farm, a cannery, a renewable eco-site, a market, a study on perma-culture, or a heritage crafts lesson.

We hope that you will join our circle of friends soon!

P.S.  This is an all adult gathering since alcoholic beverages may be served, as well as this forum is an environment free from a breadth of distractions.  Some events will be child-oriented for holiday celebrations and we will update you in advance of these dates and times.
