The folks at fair companies have been making a lot of great videos that focus on sustainability and simple living. This video was filmed in North Carolina at the Pickards Mountain Eco-Institute, which is dedicated to exploring ways modern humans can learn to coexist with our natural habitat. In other words, find a way to live sustainably while taking into account the potential impacts of climate change and rising energy costs.
On this 350-acre farm is a small village with three canvas Yomes that encircle a shared outdoor kitchen. They are also building a small cob house which you’ll see in the video below.

I can get behind everything you are doing out there but I am dismayed at “when an animal gives you the gift of its life”, seems to me that is at odds with not harming the planet. I would think for eco-mindedness you would come to the logical conclusion that animals raised for food is a waste of farm land compared to plants raised to feed us. Even if the animals are raised well, they still so often go to slaughter facilities that provide them with horrific last moments of their lives.
