Slow the water, retain sediment, allow recovery

We camped in an old school yard and spent the week learning and working with the
Borderlands Restoration group. The end of the week culminated in working
together to build rock walls on a very steep hill to potentially slow erosion and
rehabilitate the space.

A few notes/thoughts from our week in Patagonia:
“work in anticipating the unraveling of land”
“What are our roles as ethical creatures?”
“put your body where your ethics are”
“how we mark space to create and represent meaning over time”
“understanding – across space”
“deep hanging out – spending time with a space”
“reading the landscape”
“heals as an empathetic entity”
