I’ve been cycling a fair bit recently. My current freelance gig is in bath and A few times I’ve cycled the whole way over. I love getting out into the countryside and passing trees and rivers in the morning. I’m really starting to fall in love with the environment and our wilderness more and more since I started this blog.
The garden is doing well and seems to have survived our holiday. It was amazing coming back to bare cupboards, jet lagged, tired and just grabbing some stuff from the garden and whipping up a curry. We’re starting to see some benefit to our pocket.
These are all small scale micro things that need to happen to us, our family, to feel right about our place in the world. We need to appreciate what we have, we want to minimise our footprint if we can, help people, our neighbours, our friends, work colleagues and our church family. It’s our responsibility.
But how can this happen on a larger scale? On a business scale? Well this is one way. These guys, wow! They’ve created a business model that is better for the environment, creates a better product, gives people jobs and I suspect makes them a bit of cash.
This is not hippy mumbo jumbo. This is not a hipster trend. This is the future people… This is sustainability. Watch it.
And when I’m next in Illinois I might swing by Epiphany Farms.
