Eco Agrarian Community and the American Nation

Have Americans allowed the country and government of the Founding Fathers to be transformed into a materialistic, polarized, and unstable nation today? This Eco-Agrarian Community course will focus on improving the quality of life in America’s towns and cities. Examining agrarian philosophy and insights from ecology, we will analyze sustainable democracy and community. Agrarianism contends that prosperity depends on respecting and preserving the land, while ecology maintains that all things are interconnected and that nature favors cooperation over competition. Are agrarian and ecological principles a new path to restore community and prosperity in our towns and cities?
