Permaculture homesteader & avowed collapsarian exploring the future of food, farming, family & society at the beginning of the end of The Age of Stupidity.
My name is Dan McTiernan and for the past 6 years I have been homesteading and farming with my wife and boys, first on an olive farm in Catalonia and now in Finland (my wife is Finnish). I am an avowed collapsarian and we are in Finland to 'dig in' for the oncoming tumult of climate change and its social upheaval. I believe that for humans to be truly happy they need to remember their wildness, remember that we are one species of life living amongst and alongside millions of precious others. We need to take care of each other.
“People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.”
