A Beautiful Life
1. Learn to plant, not only the garden, but also the basic crops (corn, cassava etc. ) and trees (fruit, native, woody);
2. Build with some land, whether it is a place of your own or a relative, a project, a community garden etc. Get involved with the people who live there, go gradually looking for ways to spend more time in the field than in the city, learning to plant, build, treat organic waste and heal in nature;
3. Develop practical skills (cooking, woodworking, machine repair, food processing, sewing etc. ).
Teach these skills to the kids and close, close, neighbours;
4. Look for a mutual support group, where people take care of each other, make products of basic need collectively, such as natural hygiene products, natural remedies such as syrups and herbal dye s’, food, such as canned and fermented;
5. Simplify your life now, releasing more physical space and time. Discover everything you can do without money, walk, exercises, manual arts and body arts, socializing with dear people, gardening;
6. Get rid of the logic of eating more and more. Prefer a long-quality, crafted products, made by small producers, social business, and social ventures. Exchange, give and receive gifts for the value, instead of the financial value;
