Welcome to the Elders Circle Blog
From time to time, Elders Circle members share thoughts about eldership. Please enjoy!
Paul is a man of many talents and writing is decidedly one of them. From the practical and profane to the profound and philosophical, his reflections capture things we know we know, things we feel but hadn’t to put into words. He dashes off a regular column for the Gibson’s Farm Collective Newsletter, a weekly publication listing the produce on offer to members of the Collective. He writes with brevity and wisdom about whatever is on his mind and always brings it back to the practice of growing food. He and Dawn are deep ecology advocates, serious permaculture enthusiasts, and creators of BrookBank Farm – a veritable Garden of Eden and model of sustainable agriculture for the 21st Century. Paul has agreed to an ongoing republishing of his musings for our Elders Blog.
About Paul's new book, The Ground of Our Being
Paul Myers stepped on to the soil at BrookBank Farm as a man thinking himself a veteran of life and knowledge. Instead he found himself a freshman all over again. Shocked, then pleased, that the land itself can be a teacher more compelling than any professor or scholarly tome, he recorded his learnings, which he shared first in a regular column for members of the Gibson’s Farm Collective, and are now gathered in this thoughtful, inspiring, and visually engaging work. Paul and his partner Dawn have been busy transforming a once-neglected heritage farm into a model of sustainable agriculture for the 21st century. This work will help you to apply permaculture principles and practices to your garden, your home, and your life. But this is not a textbook. From the practical and everyday to the profound and philosophical, Paul’s reflections capture things we know we know, things we feel but hadn’t to put into words. He writes with brevity and wisdom, and always brings us to a new insight, a new challenge, a new place to step forward again. Accompanied by elegant full colour photographs of farm life, this work is certain to touch your soul.
