I have been teaching Permaculture and natural building at Koinonia Community in Americus, Georgia for the last two and a half years. This weekend is the seventieth anniversary celebration and symposium of the community where Habitat for Humanity was born. This evening we had dinner with Jimmy Carter, who is the keynote speaker for the weekend. He is 88 years old and still going strong. A sweet man, wouldn’t it be ideal if all presidents would use their office as a springboard for positive and good works in this world the way that Mr Carter has done. Tomorrow I give the keynote agricultural talk. Southern Georgia has an intriguing history and Koinonia is a large part of the disintegration of racial conflict in the south. May this community continue to thrive well into the future.
