Once upon a time, Homo sapiens knew from direct experience that to survive they had to live in immediate dynamic balance with the Earth. When finding food, drawing images, and constructing shelters, you strove to attune what you needed with the rhythms of the Earth. In modern times, Buckminster Fuller intuitively practiced and advocated a geometry (center photo) similar to geometries our ancestors developed (bottom photo). The geodesic dome was the result of Fuller’s revolutionary work (middle photo). However, many modern builders no longer practice basic skills nor use tools that support humanity’s survival. Skyscrapers have been documented that melt cars and alter weather patterns. Today we need to learn again how to integrate what we build into Earth’s life-supporting systems.

Hudson River Bioregion
We are working with the originators of the Bioregional effort as well as newcomers to the movement. Our intention is to seek out and encourage those living in regions not yet designated as Bioregions to engage their community. Create a participatory cultural base for nurturing their Bioregion.
