Something is desperately wrong. Last week’s paper reported that it might take 200 years to absorb the number of platted lots that have been approved in Teton Valley. Oil is dumping into the Gulf of Mexico. Just last week two good friends decided they had to move. The school budgets are grim. Two of our kids have taken their lives. Whose fault is it?

What? Start a new magazine in this economy? Are we nuts?
We hope not. We believe that promoting healthy and sustainable local living is the only hope for weathering the economic, environmental, and social storms facing our nation. Where do we go when the going gets tough? We return to family, to our community, and we reconnect with nature.
PLEASE GIVE US YOUR INPUT!
