    I am in the general area of Blue Ridge mountains. I am off to googlemap the town of Floyd, but I couldn't tell which state by seeing the webpage...it could be GA or VA. Does anyone see a reference to location? Update: I found Floyd County in Georgia, where I have visited many times. There is an agricultural college there, and it would be cool to see if the eco village was near Berry College. What was once considered uncool, a university with cows and crops, is suddenly very cool to the young people. About time! We probably should be teaching farming to as many young people as are interested. My brother taught environmental education for a while in the North US, and had students that did not know that food came from the earth. When they planted a garden, some of the kids wouldn't eat the tomatoes because they came out of the "dirt" instead of the store. As Merc would say: Ei yie yie.

    I remember that our older daughter at the age of five refused to eat eggs collected inside a barn. She wanted me to use cold ones from the supermarket!

    I don't know if you are from the US, but we have brand of milk called Pet Milk. When my daughter was seven or eight she refused to drink it. She thought they squeezed milk out of the "teats of the dogs and cats and I won't drink it!"

    sorry to go off topic, but this is fun
