new agrarians: new blood in the old body

Are you new blood in the old body?

This is a brilliantly artful summary of the New Agrarian Movement or the revived Back to the Land Movement or what I call the Land and Table Movement or however you want to say: “a new generation returning en masse to cultivating and caring for GOD’s good creation: both land and body”. I appreciate the deep insight in this short video that we who choose to relearn agrarian ways are “new blood in the old body“. Also this video and the essay that is read also makes me realize that agriculture and art are inherently intertwined- one springs out of the other forever. Culture and agriculture cannot be separated. Kudos to Trace Ramsey (aka Cricket Bread) for this brilliantly profound essay and video: Crop Mob: An Introduction.
