SUSTAINABLE COMMUNITY – WHAT IS IT?

Some recent conversations have me asking – is true sustainability possible?  I mean – how long is a sustainable era or measure?  potatoesDoes growing potatoes in a filed sustainably mean you can grow them well & healthfully for 10 ears, 100 years, 20 generations?

And – what about that word anyway?  Is it off-putting to other members of my community because they align the word with barefoot hippies, liberal, progressives or other “groups”?

Do I care?

What if I want to become more inclusive in my ability to interact in many colors of community relationships?  If a word can put them off, should I fram eit differently to catch a good listening from diverse groups?

Not sure I have any answers, but I want to ask the questions.
