Caspar's Environment from Rhoda
Randy Hester helped us identify our sacred spaces 20 years ago now. They're all protected and thriving. There are salmon back in our creeks.
The big white house in Caspar holds our social services and there is a watch tower where we can watch out for our children playing on the slide or look for wild fires.
We get our protein from our fish, eggs, cows, goats and sheep which also eat up our gorse. The goats eat all our invasive plants and we get wool from our sheep to weave and make our sweaters, hats and other clothes. We trade our wool garments for tools.
Our candidates have electronic access to elections and every one spends time as a representative.
The state returns our lands to us.
Our paths are accessible to wheelchairs and go in curves with flowers and sculptures.
People come down from the north on their bicycles on the coastal trail and stay in our small guest cottages and share their native Alaskan cultures with us. Or they come from the south with their native American arts and culture to share and teach us at our center.
We move around town on aerial movers.
Quick ride vehicles are accessed by our touch screen computers. We can get rides to FB by logging on. A car on #1 stops and picks us up, thus filling up every car that goes by and returns us home in the same way.
We have a Caspar Water Works with baths. The water is bottled in glass or ceramic bottles and jugs we make ourselves. We filter our own water and distribute it to our neighbors .
We have an aquaduct from our water works to the Anderson Valley where we trade our water for their WINE!!!
We have a network of small schools where people can teach their skills and knowledge at their home and kids can come to them.
Caspar Inn has become a Rock 'N Roll museum and stays just as it looks but is insulated so the music doesn't bother the neighbors. People come from all around and provide us with an income.
We print a Caspar Cookbook full of recipes for salmon paté, abalone, gorse wine, golfer stew, mussles, chandrelle soup and snails using butter and garlic grown and raised locally.
We invest our retirement money and stocks in our local bank and in exchange get health care, services, food, water and land.
We do jobs out of a sense of community and not just to get paid.
The kids stay here and build solar panels and feel complete and satisfied while we stay warm in our homes. They travel to larger cities to expand their experiences.
Community Land trusts are all over the country and we can move.
We still have room for our libertarian streak.
If I want to have my dog run free I talk to my neighbors first.
We accept mentally ill and they learn skills in our town. We aren't afraid of them.
We become a diverse town. Musicians or performers who might be black, brown or yellow, young or old, from India or China, come and perform at our performing arts center and they decide to stay here. We have low cost housing for them. They stay and teach us their wisdom and arts and culture. They record in our sound studio. Their music or shows go out over the internet to the world. We are a town of inclusiveness. They have children with locals and our gene pool is strengthened. WE ATTRACT WHAT WE NEED!
Indians come from India with their skills in telecommunication and open an Indian restaurant.
We donate our private land to the land trust. We have a writers' colony.
We have an artists' colony.
