For our August Words, we would like your thoughts on what it is to be SELF-SUSTAINING. How do we work with what we have so as to ease up our environmental impact? What are ways we can imagine being self-sustaining? Whether that means materially cutting back or cultivating an understanding of what it takes to nourish ourselves, show us how you envision the practice of self-sufficiency. Submissions are due August 15 to firstname.lastname@example.org and as always, feel free to drop us a line whenever you'd like! Your thoughts, ideas, and suggestions mean everything to us.
