Borrowed From Our Children

The term sustainable development is one that comes up often at Peacehaven as the board and staff seek to create a place where opportunities for learning and growth are available to all who come to live, work and volunteer at the farm.  It will require a strong commitment to sustainability to balance the social, economic, and environmental objectives that will impact the ability of Peacehaven to serve generations to come.  This commitment requires continually asking questions that cause re-evaluation of traditional life patterns and personal interests.   

“We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children."
