words of wisdom

"Every new farmers' market is a small step in [the right] direction. It requires new connections between the people who came together to found it, the farmers who come in from the country to meet their suburban and urban customers, the customers who emerge from the supermarket trance to meet their neighbors. The market begins to build a different reality, one that uses less oil and is therefore less vulnerable to the end of cheap energy. But, more important, the new reality responds to all the parts of who we are, including the parts that crave connection. One-tenth the energy, ten times the conversations-that's an equation worth contemplating." - Bill McKibben, Deep Economy
