How to form a community? Otherwise known as a progressive movement.

Let's start with this example:  Associated individuals and Northeast Farm Access company advertises its mission to the public through its website and the media.  The message in its mission is that of a progressive movement, full of good intentions.  They offer 30 year farm leases to smallscale farmers.  Read that: 30 years, NOT 30 WEEKS.

The guarantee of longterm access to the land, which cannot be bought, is on the surface, a tempting lure.  It's also a compromise, if you don't do it, you the farmer may not be able to farm at all.  Those pitiful souls who have been in this critical situation, know the suffering of the landless peasant.  The deal is much more appealing and lucrative to the Company's investor/partners, than it is to the poor farmers.  After you crunch the numbers, it becomes apparent.

UPDATE:  the epic saga has been expanded to be:

"A Tale of Seven Farmers" 

There are seven interconnected farmers, not necessarily in a harmonious relation you see.  These seven separate farmers are all struggling in the post-modern world, to make a living from the soil, to return to closeness with the land. The story unfolds with a description of the farmers one by one:  Haum, then Brooke, then Kelvin, then MacKraut, then Topper, then Handy, then Appleseed... the reader finds out the complexity of the farmer's world, which is a most revered tradition since the start of history.  

This is a novel/book which is to be a stage play of the same name.

Land, the farms, the gardens and the people who are doing that

Give thanks for your life, it is good and precious.  We are following a philosophy of simple living and that includes at its core, the work of growing your own food.  Simple and direct and natural is the lifestyle. 

If any monied interests would like to come-along and "to mission-statement" that as a way to gain their comfy millions, then do so at the risk of karma.  You do not represent the common, simple farmer, those who are meek and being the salt of the earth.  Those are the ones who need access to the farms.  Those are the humnan beings going back to live on the land.  YET those are the ones who are being used and exploited.  In their name, the artificial feudal-lords of today are thrusting out their palms, in search for alms, big alms charity donations. 

We are the grass-roots consciousness.
