At the beginning, middle, and end of the day, we view ourselves as an experiment in restoration.
Of land, purpose, structures, and of ourselves as stewards and guests.
If you visit this bend of the Bear, you're invited to take part in that restoration and over these past 3 years, thousands of you have played that part with care.
But in the rapidly changing world in which we find ourselves, restoration alone won't be enough.
In neighborhoods, wild land, communities and more, the future calls not just for preservation of good things lost but also for imagination of incredible things yet to come.
Of new ways to be on and with land. Of softer ways to be in and conduct business. Of more equal exchanges between human and nature.
Mostly, of more sustainable relationships to just about everything. If the last 3 years around here have been about restoration, the next season is about imagination.
Not solely on what MORE to have, but on HOW to ensure what we have REMAINS.
