Farmers, medical doctors and other health-related professionals, architects, builders, teachers, scientists, researchers, artists and craftsmen of many kinds will interact with one another, with respect for each other’s contributions, as we bring basic services and life skills closer together in community experience.
Much of what we do requires us to become proficient in the vocabularies of the industries, sciences, and professions that we are attempting to integrate, so we are, both literally and symbolically, knowledge translators serving disciplines largely foreign to each other. Our bridge building is intended to take much needed knowledge and technology from the fringes of creative and innovative processes into mainstream legitimacy. Additionally, the boundaries between vocation and avocation are blurred and contributions can be customized to individual needs and preferences.
Language which creates a spirit of patience, support, freedom, valuing, cooperation and enthusiasm is to be encouraged throughout. We desire to develop concepts which feel inevitable and irresistible, and inspire confidence in our ability to fundamentally improve processes and systems.
Our people are everything to us. Leadership is service.
