OUR VISION

Our modern lives are too hurried, fragmented, and compartmentalized.  Our connection to the land is severed by asphalt or limited to the confines of mowing a scrap of lawn or to glancing idly at a herd of cows from our car windows (or was it horses? or llamas? It’s hard to tell at 70 miles an hour.)   Our intellectual life ends at 18 or 22 or after graduate school when our work becomes our lives until that too passes away, and we retire, too worn out to think much past our sense of relief.  So much of our sense of community is expressed in organized “community days” that, if anything, seem more like commercialized attempts to sell or convince rather than share and uplift and support.  Everything has become a destination, a diversion, or a drudgery rather than the living of a fulfilling life.

There are historical, economic, political, and technological  forces which have undermined our connections to the land and one another and our feelings of personal efficacy in the world. Not all are evil; the good should be incorporated into our lives, the bad mitigated. But in the current state of affairs, we are often left with a longing for something that will help us feel competent and whole.

What we need are places where personal growth, a garden to till, a cup of coffee, and camaraderie are all ready to hand.  What we need are places where we can incorporate into our lives all that nurtures the human spirit in a more personal, integrated, and leisurely fashion. There should be places where you feel truly welcome - where no one’s trying to make a fast buck or demand your vote or asking you to move along because you’re too slow or less profitable or too independent to conform.

What we envision is something which will address this yearning for renewal, personal enrichment, and connection to our land and our fellows.  What we are building are community-centered working farms, places of life-long learning, cultural centers, and retreats where all are welcome.  What we are forging is Omnia Humanitas, a place for all things which are good for mankind.
