Understandably people are sensitive when others start talking about their livelihoods. I was a little skeptical when I started hearing about the research project "Bio-fuels and Land Use Project". Here are a few pictures from the books that I am including in the Spring Street Retreat library. Some of the pictures look familiar of my own experience. There are also photo's of conservation management practices and of the last small remnant of native prairie grass that we know as the Flint Hills of Kansas. I love people pictures and glad to see the photographer's own parents and "homeplace". The gallery exhibit has very colorful photo's of a variety of people who live off the land and another perspective of the resources available here.
Writing this with weekly updates about what is happening at Spring Street and the places I love in the beautiful Flint Hills.
