“Spirit permeates everything….the least you can do still has resonance.”- Steven McFadden
We enjoyed hearing Steven McFaddens soft and spiritual approach, focusing on positive models and positive actions in farming. But how does having patience, forgiveness and love work with the problems like Fukashima and other nuclear perversions of our age and large corporations like Monsanto? Steve offers somesimilar answers as yesterdays guest Elisabet Sahtouris. As Ghandi once said “be the change you wish to see in the world”. Enjoy the show!
My name is Steven McFadden. I’ve been writing about the land since I graduated from journalism school at Boston University in 1975, and I’ve authored hundreds of articles, and 12 nonfiction books exploring themes related to the land and to our lives.
This blog expresses the urgent call of the land as I and a host of other listeners hear it. In particular it explores positive creative responses to the call that we might have an abundance of clean food and heal the profoundly distressed environment in which we and our children dwell.
I invite you to visit my other websites as well. Chiron Communications is my general, all-purpose site, describing other realms of work, and my other books including Farms of Tomorrow (1990) and Farms of Tomorrow Revisited (1998) which I co-authored with Trauger Groh. They are the first two books published on Community Supported Agriculture (CSA).
You are invited also to visit Odyssey of the 8th Fire, wherein I tell the true, epic saga of a band of pilgrims who made a prophetic journey, walking from the Atlantic to the Pacific (1995-96) under the dramatic sky sign of the Whirling Rainbow, and the sure guidance of traditional keepers and spiritual elders of North America.
