Consulting the Genius of the Place: An Ecological Approach to a New Agriculture
Consulting the Genius
of the Place:
An Ecological Approach
to a New Agriculture

Wes Jackson
b. 1-1-1936; near Topeka, Kansas

Wes Jackson, the founder of The Land Institute, and proposer of “Natural Systems Agriculture” - a sustainable, high yield, low labor, agricultural model based on the culturation of crop polycultures, using nature as a model.

Jackson was named a Pew Scholar in Conservation and the Environment, received a MacArthur “genius” award in 1992, and the Livelihood Award (called the alternative Nobel Prize) in 2000.

Wes Jackson quotes ~
• “If we don’t get sustainability in agriculture first, sustainability will not happen.”
• “By beginning to make agriculture sustainable we will have taken the first step forward for humanity to begin to measure progress by its independence from the extractive economy.”
• “The agriculture we seek will act like an ecosystem, feature material recycling and run on the contemporary sunlight of our star.”
• “When people, land, and community are as one, all three members prosper; when they relate not as members but as competing interests, all three are exploited.”
• “We need to be saying, 'Listen folks, capitalism is inherently destructive.' How do we get from where we are to where we need to be ... We have got to get rid of capitalism.”
• “If your life's work can be accomplished in your lifetime, you're not thinking big enough.”

Jane Jacobs
b. 5-4-1916; Scranton, PA
d. 4-25-2006; Toronto, Canada

Jane Jacobs' writing focused on communities, urban planning and decay. She is also noted for activism in organizing grassroots blockage of urban-renewal projects that destroyed neighborhoods.

Jane Jacobs quotes ~
• “The point of cities is multiplicity of choice.”
• “You can't rely on bringing people downtown; you have to put them there.”
• “There is a quality even meaner than outright ugliness or disorder, and this meaner quality is the dishonest mask of pretended order, achieved by ignoring or suppressing the real order that is struggling to exist and to be served.”

Robinson Jeffers
b. 1-10-1887; Allegheny, Pennsylvania
d. 1-20-1962

Poet Robinson Jeffers wrote mostly about the central California coast in “classic narrative and epic form” and is best known today as an icon of the environmental movement.

Robinson Jeffers quotes ~
• “Pleasure is the carrot dangled to lead the ass to market; or the precipice.”
• “Imagination, the traitor of the mind, has taken my solitude and slain it.”
• “Long live freedom and damn the ideologies.”
• “There is no reason for amazement: surely one always knew that cultures decay, and life's end is death.”

Barbara Kingsolver
b. 4-8-1955; Annapolis, MD

Novelist, essayist and poet Barbara Kingsolver focuses on social justice, biodiversity, community and the environment. She also has a Masters Degree in ecology and evolutionary biology.

Barbara Kingsolver quotes ~
• “It's surprising how much of memory is built around things unnoticed at the time.”
• “What keeps you going isn't some fine destination but just the road you're on, and the fact that you know how to drive.”
• “Wars and elections are both too big and too small to matter in the long run. The daily work - that goes on, it adds up.”
