Gina & All,This project to interview elders about life on the farm sounds really interesting! My neighbor's dad, Bob Artley, is an artist and author about early farm days. He's written informative books with detailed illustrations about life on the farm when he was growing up... a wonderful balance of art, growing & processing food, early science and history represented in his work. His books are detailed enough to guide the replication of the lifestyle and mechanics of early Midwest farm life. I bought "Once Upon a Farm" at the Jesse James Museum in Northfield. Love it! I think they sell a couple others there, too. The books are also offered through Amazon http://www.amazon.com/s/ ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Dstripbooks&field- keywords=artley&x=13&y=19.

Hi! Is this Paul? Thanks for the update on the Community Resilience Transition Plan. It looks like a great start! I'm particularly interested in the "interviews with community elders about life years ago with much less energy". They would be a great resource for the skills necessary to live with much less energy (the Amish could be another resource) and that could lead in to variouseducational offerings for those skills. Do you have a plan for this, oris everyone just going to do their own interviews? I would be veryinterested in participating in this part of the Plan. I'll be moving backto Northfield in January (why not?) and am looking forward to finding ways to get involved. Also, I hope you're including "health care with much less energy" as an agenda topic in one of your public Plan meetings. My backgroundis in nursing and health so I'm interested in this topic also, as well asfood production issues. Anyway, I'll be up there after the holidays--hope yours are warm and happy--and I'll show up at a public meeting or contact you in some other way then.
