I can’t resist passing along this sweet shout-out from my client Jason Stern, publisher of the ever-awesome Chronogram magazine:
“I look around the community and see so many people doing amazing work that has the remarkable quality of putting their values into action. Here are seven examples that spring immediately to mind, because they all live and work within a half-mile of my home: Pete Taliaferro, and family, and his organic community-supported farm; Lagusta Yearwood and her impeccable, local, organic, vegan meal home delivery service (and her bicycle powered washing machine); Mario Torchio and his 60 Main Arts Collective & Café; Kim Kimble and daughter Noelle Kimble McEntee and their Celebration of the Arts event; James Yastion and the ultra-green strawbale house he built himself; Chris Harp, apiarist, and his passionate work to educate about bees;
Ron Khosla, farmer, and his work to organize community farmers nationally under an organic certification independent of the USDA.
Seven people doing amazing work in and for the earth and community—and within a half-mile of my home. What if I extended the circle to two miles?!
The work for a new world is happening here, now. As the corporate dinosaurs die, the warm-blooded mammals—small, interrelated, interdependent communities that operate with an awareness of their own neighborhood and the planet as whole—will flourish.”
Totes, Jason. Totes. As always, I’m proud to be a part of this wonderful and engaging community.
