Community Forming Sharing Circle Community On 3/14/2009
[We've moved from Jim Drommond's Pilot House, to another house that Jim has added to the intentional community model; & is aligned with the Enright Ridge Urban Ecovillage]. Wondering what a sustainable society might look like? We, Mike & Birdie, talk about this at our Veggie Potluck & RoundTable Discussions, every First Sunday, 2 to 4pm, at our home, 363l W. 8th St., Cin. OH. Bring a veggie dish to share, buffet-style. We load our plates, & all introduce ourselves, while sharing a meal.... Seems obvious the domination-style society is unsustainable: U.S. empire: tottering; predatory economy: sinking; resources: diminishing; globe: warming; glaciers: melting; toxic waste mountains: growing; mass killings: routine; war: constant; drones: keep flying; population growth: out of control.... Don't we need to change to a community-based sustainable society of friendly partnerships?.... A few people-friendly, earth-friendly, spiritually-open, well-functioning communities exist, on ic.org, & elsewhere, self-described as resilient, ecovillages, sustainable, permaculture, stewardship, spiritually-based, transiton towns...Our vision not cut in stone....vegetarian....Many Olympic athletes, & great intellects, are/were vegetarians. Less land to grow fruits & vegetables, than raise animals for slaughter... More caring... Folks think we won't end war on humans til we stop killing animals....We meditate, do no-till farming/gardening, permaculture, may build earth-bag greenhouses...Email Address: Phone: 513-828-8551
