Lake Placid Online Farmers Market: September Market Open!!
It’s that time again—the Lake Placid Online Farmer’s Market is live and ready for ordering!
Beth from Rehoboth regrets that she does not have photos included this month…however, she has added lots of tomatoes – cherries, saladettes, heirlooms, and you can buy 100 pounds for canning. Beth has also added incredibly beautiful and delicious sweet peppers in various colors and shapes. All of these items are organically grown.
As always, email me with any questions at email@example.com.
Old99Farm Market: In step or Out of Step?
When have you ever felt your values or worldview or ethics were out of step with the world (room, neighbourhood, dining table, etc.) around you? I post these thoughts from Albert Bates, posted today at http://www.peaksurfer.blogspot.ca/2014/09/stranded-ethics.html
…Robert Jay Lifton, author of Death in Life: Survivors of Hiroshima, wrote an op-ed for The Sunday New York Times (Aug 23, 2014) called The Climate Swerve, pointing out the sudden shift in awareness towards the existential threat we face from our careless destruction of the atmospheric commons.
…To truly inhabit the 21st century we will all share a common epiphany: that we have reached the Age of Limits and the Era of Consequences. We are at or soon approaching that inflection point. Here, now. From that shift it will follow as inexorably as night follows day that the ethics of the past are not just passé, but counterproductive. Anyone clinging to them will be regarded as a fool, a fossil and a social pariah. ([ig: out of step]
…The late Zenmaster, Shunryu Suzuki Roshi, in Zen Mind Beginners Mind said it is important to understand that Zen is nothing special. Any roshi will say the same. There is no attainment. Just sit. Nothing special.
…As the ethics of the 20th century become stranded, the ethics of permaculture will become invisible. Permaculture will become the new normal. It will simply be taken for granted.
… So too, Permaculture is nothing special. Acting ethically towards future generations is nothing special. Living today as if there really is going to be a tomorrow is not a fringe activity. Just do it. Already, everyone else is starting to, too.
Say I, on the matter of climate, it is beginning to be impossible, just barely, to ignore it, or deny it.
I hope you will go to www.WatchDisruption.com. This documentary from www.350.org with make you check your bearings, your ‘out-of-stepness’. Even the trailer is compelling.
