The success of
Valley can be measured by the people who
have enjoyed it.

A stick was laid
down and a question was
asked. How do you make the stick smaller without touching it?
The answer: lay a longer stick next to it.
We reckon with a
government who cannot stop
the momentum of war long enough to take care of her people,
corporations who will rape the earth until they find another, and
people so stunned by it all they have lost their voice.
The stick that we
can lay is a simple one.
We still have time, the earth can heal and so can we. The kindness card
is not so difficult to play – and it feels good.
Echo Valley Farm
and Echo Valley Hope are thriving examples of possibility. So, with
and the support of many, we begin the search for land to begin another
living center - this time we head south through Tennessee, North
Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia.
If you have leads on
good farm or
recreational land, people who might be willing to sell or to share
their land with others, or are interested in being a part of creating
and sustaining these possibilities, stay in touch. If you are new to
our efforts, please check out these websites:
events page for more details in the next few weeks.
Echo Valley Farm's bakers are once again selling
holiday cookies. Our
cookies are made with local butter, organic flour and sugar, and a
great deal of love. This year, we have added a gluten-free option.
We have also made felted, home-made soap using our own sheep tallow and
wool. These uniquely shaped bars make a wonderful gift for friends,
family, and yourself. Email Melody at firstname.lastname@example.org
for more information and to order soap.
