Tending the Roots and Closing the Loops

PRESENTED ON APR 02, 2019
IN STILLWATER @ VOL 3

Mary Richelle Wilson delves into her creative process and life philosophy, as she builds a picture of the personal ethic that she strives to apply in all areas of her life. She actively pursues in her own life the beauty that nature inspires, a healthy human connection to our home (the earth as a whole and the local ecosystems), sustainable life choices, intentional community and relationships, self-expression; and above all, personal growth. She finds great significance in the innumerable connections that bind us all together, and goes about life with the intention of being part of and creating strong, mutually beneficial, bonds with other creatives through a patient and sustainable path toward deep and meaningful relationships in localized communities.

Timpson Creek Farm

BY DARBY WEAVER
@ VOL 36 ON AUG 26, 2018

Through study, design, and implementation, we are capable of setting up food systems that mimic nature's flow, are easy to manage, work on nature's renewable engine, and house closed fertility loops that increase overall sustainability. "Making" these places where nature and production meet offer many rewards both felt on an individual/spiritual growth curve and on the greater community that have access to fresh food and experiences within nature's matrix. Darby Weaver shares with us about these fascinating systems in her presentation.
