The Post-Wall Street Era Will Be Local

Real Billions and Real Trillions

While I was searching for images of life in the soil, I came upon the following on Sweet Bay Farm’s website (see above). They’re working to restore soils depleted by decades of monoculture—the continual cultivation of a single crop, in this case tobacco—so this picture of several earthworm tunnels in a clod does not yet suggest anything teeming.

A Conversation With Jeff Moyer

Jeff, before we begin, I want to thank you for the images of the jars of water, one with soil rich in organic matter and one with the dissolved murkiness of soil that is deficient in carbon. Ever since you showed those images during a public talk a decade or so ago, the comparison has stuck with me.

Colorado Soil Systems Receives 0% Loan

In 2016, Colorado Soil Systems received a $15,000 zero-percent loan from the 2Forks Club. This loan allowed us to establish a fruit-tree rootstock nursery to preserve indigenous trees that grow in the valley; purchase irrigation supplies, fencing, and soil amendments; and embark on a vegetable- and flower- production operation.

    So beautifully and well-written, Thank you Raphael. I am undertaking exactly this sort of re-orientation and development in the Appalachian Region of the US. These folks, in taking back their economy and community after large-scale industry has decimated the environment and their health, very lucidly see this road map and their cultural norms support it. I want to introduce Slow Money into the equation to bolster their efforts. I believe they can become a showcase for an entire regional regenerative embrace of a Slow Money economy.

      Thank you Loraine for your kind words. I am very interested in the Appalachian Region, both beautiful and victim of human greed. You are right in underlining the importance of cultural norms in supporting (or not) their recovery effort. Please keep me updated on your work. If you are in Boulder for the Slow Money conference next week, don’t hesitate to get in touch (I will take part in a round-table on tuesday afternoon / 3rd floor of Rembrandt Yard,1301 Spruce St. ). Best regards

    how one living, from Hidden Hills, California I want to tell you, I like this blog. However, it is funny how I ended up on your blog post. I searched for limousine services charlotte nc on Lycos and ended up on your website. I must say I do like your site and will check back soon. But I need to find the limo I was originally looking for first. Have a amazing day! adieu.

      I hope you finally did find your Limousine service in Charlotte. You might have ended up here because the origin of the word “Limousine” is the name of a beautiful rural French region (Limousin) 😉 Have a nice day!

    They want you to come to the salon on a regular basis so they tell you that you need to
    get a haircut every four to six weeks, but it’s just a way for them to make more money.
    Purchase shampoo or other hair care products that are meant specifically for people
    with thinning hair. Such devices as KTP, ERBIUM, Pulse
    DYE and Alexandrite have short length of laser light waves, and they are very effective for removing unwanted
    hair on a light colored skin.

    I am sure you will definitely get confused.

    Will the doctor performing blind dissection be able to adequately account for this variability in the average patient and will he
    risk operating on an unwary patient in whom these
    differences might be profound. Consult with a veterinarian for the proper dosage based on the
    individual pig’s weight. The doctors and the physicians must be experienced
    and trained in handling the laser instruments.

    Wouldn’t it be more appropriate to have moist mouse in a pouch or rat in a tin. There is also an objective in the battle,
    which is; the souls of men and women. Because if I get angry, I will snatch that bitch off
    that bar stool and mop up the floor with her.
