Welcome! Here is my real website home where I continue work on Rural System, Inc. the RRx enterprise, and related projects.
Intensive use of computers to improve land use decisions does not mean that there is no one on the other end of this electronic message.

Expanded Resources for Rural System and Related Work
Because people have said to me "just tell me a story about it" I've written a free Internet book about Rural System. It's available with a click on Rural System? Just Dreaming : A For-Profit Conglomerate for Meaningful Jobs, Healthful Communities, and Improved Natural Resource Management ©. There are many stories there.
I continue writing a small book about the potentials and opportunities of Rural System. I call it Rural Reformation and its draft parts are:
Profits result from wise use of resources. Profits from Rural System are expected to be derived from the benefits derived wisely from rural resources. Resources well used and managed may produce benefits ... over many years. Major benefit headings (SPOVIIIIEMM) are in boldface letters (with comments about each of them).
I started with a Lasting Forests web site but it became almost irrelevant among the needs for a comprehensive approach to the full array of rural problems and opportunities. I plan to move revised elements from that site, www.RuralSystem.com, further. The current units of Lasting Forest, some pulled into other units, are now available for use.
I have plans also for the URL EarthQuilt for its related work has not achieved early expectations for communication and sharing. It may become part of Rural System, an Internet-connected group of human communities being developed to share ideas, encouragement, advice, information and achieve things undreamed bI (before the Internet). EarthQuilt is now an example of one potential enterprise of the Rural System conglomerate. It addresses the concerns of people in small, struggling communities and attempts to relate well to employment, taxation, natural resource, ecotourism, and health issues. It has no church or religious body affiliation.
Dr. William H. Sanders shared ideas about the potentials of a "country-store" symbolism and e-catalog marketing the offerings of Rural System. The first step is now available. All of the Rural System enterprises and their products, services, and benefits may some day be listed here in such an on-line catalog.

You may see the total list there as well as those listed below. Then see the following parts of the web site now listed in no special order since many relate to several topics ...
The Satpuda Foundation Cooperative relations are being developed with The Satpuda Foundation dealing with the world's largest tiger reserves in central India. You are invited to visit their web site, to contribute to their essential work against poaching and with ecosystem management, and to plan visits to the staff and area. Later, The Tours Group and The Bobcat Group will be able to assist and work with you.
Understanding Rural System?
We have been told that understanding Rural System and the major concepts behind it is difficult because of its size, diversity, and complexity. We have nothing yet to "show" someone an ownership that is operating following one of our prescriptions. The prescription system, RRx, is not yet complete.We now develop such a system, largely from well-known pieces and parts. We add to conventional and modern agriculture over 50 new profitable companies.
If you have specific interest in the Rural System, inc. or in any one or more of the 100 sketched enterprises, I shall be glad to correspond about your interest. As an example, if you were a wood carver, we ought to discuss your role or our work together in developing The Sculptors. I am networking; small starts together may achieve the objectives of Rural System.
If you are a landowner, please contact me. I do not yet have resources to get the conglomerate started but I am working on that. Some of the resources here may be helpful to you now.
I also hope that you will be a frequent user of these resources and that we may correspond by email for their improvement. I welcome your feedback to the materials here. Your input will help me continually improve and refine my efforts and make the web site and Rural System useful to others.
Please tell others about the site www.RuralSystem.com.
I'm found within Linkedin and also write the blogs Faunal Force and The Survivalists
