This is a reprint of the summary report I turned in to my faculty adviser for the fall quarter. As this was my last quarter at Cascadia State, this project is, in one sense, complete. However, we still need to eat; we still want to localize our economic activity; and we’re still a low-income family. I also want to keep writing. As you could probably tell from my recent series on Thanksgiving and Black Friday, my interest in economic justice and sustainable living extends beyond the food we eat and the clothes we wear to the ethics and values that drive our decisions, and the myriad connections that tug between society and the natural environment. I think this is a suitable platform for exploring these ideas, and as time permits I will do so.
