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.

'Freeranging to the Rescue ------- ?'

April 20, 2017 · 6 Comments

A quick-change spring sprang here at the eco organic micro-holding (small smallholding) in the UK midlands, bringing a suddenly colourful countryside panorama. Micro-holding crops have gone into the ground well and on time, with one currently cropping crop having to go onto temporary storage, to facilitate the planting of a micro-holding stalwart crop.

Various measure have been taken in an effort to support the wildlife, some of which, for example the bees, are key components of the growing system. All wildlife live freeranging style, employing unique 'survive and thrive' survival strategies, as did one animal which came to live at the micro-holding.

'Largist' modern life is reported to be having negative impacts on individuals, causing for instance rises in insecurity and in some cases real hardship, which the powerless individual likely finds hard to counter. The 'fast flow' of life and the rate of change, along with high degrees of commerciaism and media impact, are factors no doubt contributing to any difficulties individuals are experiencing in coping with modern western-style cultures, along with receiving relatively thin slices of 'the cake' - ?

Changes in cultural trends and mores have also probably influenced 'life as we know it', with social priorities possibly suffering in the 'age of self', begging the question as to whether better balance is needed in societies,  highlighting one that appears to be achieving said balance to good effect. Weighty considerations can, though, be counterbalanced by simple practical tasks ---- ?
