Sustainable living is a consciously chosen core mission and vision of Living Well Earth Stewards and a passion among the board members. This is the place where all of our projects, classes and activities begin.
Wikipedia defines sustainable living as …a lifestyle that attempts to reduce an individual’s or society’s use of the Earth’s natural resources and personal resources. Our members model this in a variety of ways individually as well. Our affiliation with Living Well Community, the folk classes we run, as well as our support and participation with other communities and groups demonstrate our organization’s commitment.
We have sponsored the building of two small-house projects with students at Jordan Mathews High School which not only teaches valuable carpentry skills, but the value of smaller houses.
We have had classes on water catchment, growing and using herbs, fermentation, shiitake mushroom growing, and identifying and eating wild edibles, among others.
We understand that the translation of this lifestyle is an individual one and our intention is not to place judgement on anyone or group, but to help facilitate and educate people to choose sustainability wherever they are.
