I’m happy to announce that over the past few months, I have been working with a team at the Metta Earth Institute to launch the Metta Earth Blog. If you recognize the name, it’s because I attended a leadership intensive at Metta Earth last summer and fell in love with the place and the people there. The Metta Earth Institute is a farm and budding eco-village situated on about 150 acres of land in rural Vermont. It’s a place where sustainable living, leadership training, and spirituality come together beautifully.
During a conversation this winter with Gillian Comstock, the co-director of Metta Earth, she mentioned that they were planning to launch a blog as part of their outreach strategy. I volunteered to be the “Blog Keeper,” or central point person for the blog, and have had fun working on the design and content. The MEI blog is now live at MettaEarthBlog.org. However, it will soon be a part of MettaEarth.org after the main site migrates to WordPress later this month. Please hop on over and take a look!
We don’t have much content yet, but stay tuned for posts about lambs (the little ones in Metta Earth’s flock are being born right now), recipes, and some long-format writing from yours truly. I’m very excited about this blog, not only because it supports and showcases the work of Metta Earth, but also because it will be a resource for the sustainable living community in general.
