We had a wonderful time participating in the Exit & Build Land Summit this weekend. It was jam packed with guest speakers from all over the world doing wonderful work on building intentional communities, alternative institutions, and teaching people how to grow their own food. It was inspiring to hear what is going on across the world to reclaim our independence.
As someone who has already “exited and built”, we were asked to host a few farm tours at our ranch before and after the conference. We are very passionate about sharing what we’ve learned with others so they too can build personal sovereignty and food security. We hosted a series of four tours on the Thursday before the convention and the Monday after the convention ended.
I was inspired by many of the presenters at the conference, but I was particularly impressed with Alan Graham of Mobile Loaves & Fishes. and what he's doing right here in Central Texas. I encourage you to check out theCommunity First! Village. It is a 51-acre master planned community that provides affordable, permanent housing and a supportive community for men and women coming out of chronic homelessness. These guys are making a real, lasting difference in people’s lives – and they’re doing it without the government!
On Sunday we broke away from the conference to host several families from the Austin Chapter of the Westin A Price Foundation. The Weston A Price Foundation is dedicated to restoring nutrient-dense foods to the human diet through education, research and activism. As we are always trying to connect people with where their food comes from, it’s a perfect union. We had several families join us for a farm tour and hay ride. It’s especially gratifying when the children get to experience farm life.
Both of these events support our mission to help people reclaim their freedom through independent living and establish wellbeing through healthy nutrition. We are immensely grateful to you for joining us in this endeavor.
