Farmer, poet, essayist Wendell Berry spoke about what links us to a home place and how that connection results in a "husbandry" that benefits people, land, and community.

The first Annual E. F. Schumacher Lectures were delivered in 1981 by Wendell Berry, Wes Jackson, and Hazel Henderson.  They emphasized the importance of vibrant regional economies at a time when the focus of the nation was on an expanding global economy
