I have an acre and an old house (like 110 years), and my roots driven deep into the soil, for better or worse. I'm not out in the "pristine wilderness" but as Bear said, back to the land is just that regardless. I'm absolutely making dirt, growing gardens, and trying to be an all around caretaker of this plot. The spirit of the land, assuming you see things that way, seems to be happier for it.
It really touches home for me cause back to the land for me does not JUST mean acres upon acres of beautiful land but the acres upon acres of beautiful cities and blighted urban areas where we can BRING THE LAND BACK by improving the soil, educating the thirst of knowledge our urban core has at .1 an acre or less at a time.
congrats 110years or so eh :) My old house was built in 1919 (there was a penny placed into the window sill to date the house long ago)
Yeah Wilde........the framing is real 2 X 16 solid oak plank balloon framed...........it's petrified. We live in old school stuff................I love it!
