We live in an extraordinary moment on Earth. We possess more technical prowess and knowledge than our ancestors could have dreamt of. Our telescopes let us see through time to the beginnings of the universe; our microscopes pry open the codes at the core of organic life; our satellites reveal global weather patterns and hidden behaviors of remote nations. And our electronic surveillance capacity leaves no aspect of anyone’s life safe from corporate and governmental scrutiny. Who, even a century ago, could have imagined such immensity of information and power?

May the turning of the seasons & the turning of the leaves save us.
May we be saved by the worms, the beetles & the microbes turning the soil.
May we be saved by the turning of vegetation into compost
& the turning of compost into rich soil.
May the turning of seeds into plants & the turning of flowers
into fruits save us.
May the grasses & weeds, the vines & mosses all conspire to save us.
May we be saved by the turning of sprouts into saplings, of saplings into trees,
& the trees into forests.
May the scurrying, foraging, pouncing & lumbering of the animals save us.

Rising Appalachia was invited to White Crow farm during their summer 2015 tour across Canada to engage in a candlelit front porch community dialogue and song with Over Grow The System during their permaculture weekend workshop series.  The theme of the discussion was art and activism (amongst other topics) and what sort of crossroads, junctions, and opportunities we find ourselves facing when we want to speak to deep collective social and environmental themes with our art forms.  Individually, Chloe Leah and Biko discuss their own backgrounds and inspirations as well as the larger work of the band and their ideas on how to develop more sustainable strategies within the music industry and touring band model of the modern troubadour.

“We all want to help one another. Human beings are like that. We want to live by each others happiness, not by each others misery. We don’t want to hate and despise one another. In this world there is room for everyone, and the good earth is rich and can provide for everyone. The way of life can be free and beautiful, but we have lost the way”
