Back to the land movement

Posted: July 30, 2012 in Uncategorized

The first time I tried grass, I was convinced it had no effect so I drove my ’52 Ford, the one I had driven over the mountains from Texas, up to North Beach, in san Francisco,  parked it, saw some friends, then spent four hours trying to find it again.

The back to the land movement had just been born, or reborn, depending on how long a view of history you take. The “Whole Earth Catalogue” was published around this time, and many people were talking about getting out of the City for the country.  I got swept up in it; it nicely fit with my farming desires.

Lots of people left the cities for the country. Did you?
