Episode 75: Four Corners

Intentional communities, draft horses, farmstead cheese… it all sounds a little bit Vermont.  That’s because it is!  This week we visit Cobb Hill, a co-housing community in the North East where communal has taken a more comfortable turn and appears to be doing very well.  Oh and I make Corn Chowder and Mirra Dances.

    Beautiful. I suggest that Occupy Wall St participants consider getting jobs on farms!

      yeah, it was broth. sort of a chowder where you pour the broth over the chowder. i’ll put up a recipe soon!

    Two words: Wendell Berry. That community though I think is indicative of a main problem that Wendell saw – where are all the young people? What that community is doing is so awesome. Why aren’t there young people there keeping it up? As a side note – I love Vermont.

    That was wonderful. I’m retired now, but this would have been my dream, years ago. I’m so lucky to live in Vermont.

    Tasty-lookin’ soup, and second Austin below on the dancin’ and singin’. 

    I’ve often thought those that can manage communal living have something figured out that the rest of us don’t.
