"Georgics is a lost cultural Ideal that the founders worked hard to inculcate into American society. Georgics is what made Greece and Rome great. Georgics is what healed Europe after the fall of Rome and Georgics was the foundation for making America the greatest land of liberty in the world. Permaculture is a modern-day georgics movement that will heal the soil and rejuvenate communities, making them resilient against future hardships." Dr. Shanon Brooks
