Shaker Society

There have been some interesting tries at sustainable communities in the past such as the shakers. They had some really good ideas such as,(produce items and buildings that you wouldn’t be ashamed to show to god), eat healthy homegrown food, etc, and some really bad ones(celibacy) as far as I’m concerned anyway. The picture above is of their seed saving equipment. They were some of the larger suppliers of seeds, and they sent seeds all over the country. I think there are lessons we can learn from all of the early attempts at right living and livelihoods.
