advice from C. Chute

Carolyn Chute and husband

For thousands of years we grew our own food. In two or three generations those skills have been stripped from us. Schooling had done this. And we condoned it...this reverence for the white shirt, the desk, the clean hands, the books, the computers, the bucks, the conveniences, the 'good job' somewhere else! How many survival skills do your children have? How many kids today can provide for themselves food, tools, clothing, warmth...? Please, please, please, in the name of God, pass along any skills you have...any of the old skills...teach your sons and daughters...whisper your secrets to your neighbor's child!
