Want to Get "Back to the Land"? You're Not Alone 14.6.2017 Truthout - All Articles
Over the past century, generations of young people have turned their backs on city life to embrace small-scale farming and back-to-the-land ideals. The exact circumstances for each generation's return have varied: the Great Depression in the 1930s, the Vietnam War in the '60s and '70s, and, more recently, the loss of ecosystems and biodiversity to industrial agriculture and climate change. Each generation has had one common desire: to live a more honest, ethical life of self-sufficiency and oneness with nature. Young farmers today face serious structural obstacles: access to affordable land, a steep (and often self-financed) learning curve, debilitating student loans, and lack of access to health care. But three back-to-the-land farmers managed to succeed in a fickle vocation that seems to demand equal parts skill, determination, and luck. What choices did they make, and are their experiences instructive for struggling young farmers today? Jean-Martin Fortier: Standing on the Shoulders of Giants In the ...

The Urban Common Spaces That Show Us We Belong to Something Larger 3.6.2017 Truthout - All Articles
An American friend living in Germany told me a story about when she first arrived. She and her German boyfriend were out walking when she heard a noise that got louder as they approached the town's main square. Puzzled, she asked her partner about the unfamiliar sound. "That's the sound of people talking to each other," he told her. People outside, not drowned out by the noise of cars or amplified music. Imagine! On my recent trip to Europe, where I was speaking about my new  book,  The Revolution Where You Live, I, too, found people everywhere outside, enjoying common spaces. Jane Jacobs, the author and activist who  revolutionized urban planning , wrote often about the outdoor spaces where people encounter each other. Even in large, gritty cities such as New York and Berlin, these urban commons  connect us to each other  and to the land, water, plants, and animal life of our home. We experience what it means to belong to something larger, to be welcome simply because we are alive. But common spaces  ...
