Subject: sust communities & soils
hi all --
1. is anyone out there a member of an intentional,
sustainable community? more specifically, are you
producing/gathering all (or almost all) of your food on the
land around you? is your waste remaining near the waster?
i seek, because a friend who is studying rainforest ecology
in costa rica encountered a group of families who, after
living in san juan for an unknown number of years, decided
to 'return to nature' . . . they sought a different, more
connected life with the land, their children, and friends.
this group of people sparked curiousity within my friend,
who now wants to learn more about
intentional/small/sustainable communities . . . who is
doing it? how? are there resources for groups? if anyone
is doing it and has a website, that/your web address in
particular would be very helpful.
2. another feeler for another friend . . . this friend
started a compost pile behind her house last spring; this
fall, she has spread her aged pile around her house,
desiring to plant bulbs for next spring. in what nutrients
is her pile rich? how heavily does the answer to that
question depend upon "what" was composted or what was added
(e.g., grass clippings, leaves) to the pile? this pile was
aged in east-central wisconsin . . . any suggestions as to
what bulbs to plant?
