Wendell Berry’s first book was about the destruction of the social fabric of rural America. Part of the reason I wanted to move to the “country” was a desire to be a part of the reweaving of that fabric.

With Industrial Agriculture farms had to “get big or get out” of agriculture. Most people stopped farming. Those few who continued relied on industrial machinery, monocropping, and finance, not on each other. This destroyed the social fabric of mutual dependence that characterized rural America. That social fabric wasn’t perfect (It was built on the premise of private property stolen from indigenous peoples) but it was a way of life that took for granted the need to ask for help and to offer it on a regular basis.

A healthy F3 community will include the regular asking for help and the regular offer of help among those involved.

Output shared how the community here came together during the recent fires in ways he had never seen. Deacon also shared how hard it is to ask for help, but how that can be a way to put yourself in another’s “debt,” which can build that relationship and foster community.
