We can attempt to teach the things that one might imagine the earth would teach us: silence, humility, holiness, connectedness, courtesy, beauty, celebration, giving, restoration, obligation and wildness. David Orr from "Earth in Mind"

Stone Barn Farm
The first weekend that Alder and I were in New York we took a trip up river to the Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture. This is where we had a little confusion identifying a pig. In fact before we were close enough to it's wooded enclosure we had thought it was a dog (chocolate lab) and a cow. The center is beautiful and interesting, however you can tell that it is just out side of New York City. While it is free to visit the ground the restaurant that is very pricey. The less expensive cafe is still outrageous it cost almost three dollars for a bottle of water (we were in great need for more water after our hike). However the hikes are beautiful and what they are doing with the farm is interesting so it is worth the trip, as long as you bring your own picnic.
