Simple Appropriate Technologies

A Few Simple Technologies for Daily Living

This website highlights our on-going exploration of some practical aspects of simple, land-integrated living. The emphasis is on simple technologies and skills that address basic needs such as food, water, shelter, etc.
You will find examples from our years in South Texas, and also from Arizona and Oregon, where we currently split our time.
If you have questions or comments, we'd enjoy hearing from you.

          Why?
"We must achieve the character and acquire the skills to live much poorer than we do. We must waste less. We must do more for ourselves and each other. It is either that or continue merely to think and talk about changes that we are inviting catastrophe to make."
Wendell Berry, from the essay "Word and Flesh," in the book What Are People For? North Point Press, 1990.
