“Good farmers, who take seriously their duties as stewards of Creation and of their land’s inheritors, contribute to the welfare of society in more ways than society usually acknowledges, or even knows. These farmers produce valuable goods, of course; but they also conserve soil, they conserve water, they conserve wildlife, they conserve open space, they conserve scenery.”

– Wendell Berry

One Room

Give me the money that has been spent in war
and I will clothe every man, woman, and child
in an attire of which kings and queens will be proud.
I will build a schoolhouse in every valley over the whole earth.

– Charles Sumner

In amongst the stalks of corn sat this old one room schoolhouse, this long-closed factory of minds. Like most industry of old, a victim of economies of scale.
