Free-Range Living

What is Free-Range Living?

'Freerange' living might perhaps be described as the individual(s) aiming to lead an 'independent' style of life, thinking and deciding for themselves, determining their own values, along with aiming to live life in a naturally self and socially responsible manner.

'Taking Care ------? '

December 20, 2013 ·

Lots of late leaves this year at the eco micro-holding in the UK midlands - all good fodder for the compost heap, although some would demur. All the green waste goes to make free fertiliser via the compost heap, whilst also clearing it away. The winter veg is looking ok and should as normal supply greens throughout winter, but the normally dependable leek crop has been a bit of a sorry story.

'Screwing as much as possible' out of the punter seems to be accepted business practice in pursuit of 'mega bucks' profits these days, but doesn't always work, as a mini case study illustrates. Pressurising employees via targets and penalty systems also seems to be part of the current 'grand plan', with some, poor souls, reportedly having been driven to suicide. Notions of leadership and personal motivation and responsibility seem to have fallen by the wayside, but maybe short-term pressurisation tactics on people may have longer-term costs - ?

Time to take some time out to 'semi-hibernate', with time to reflect in front of the woodstove, and hopefully recharge the batteries, a process the incessant drive for profits type of culture may not facilitate easily - ?
