“Thinking like a river basin.”

An extremely timely bioregionalist reflection

Paraphrasing Aldo Leopold and his Thinking Like a Mountain, today it is really the case that there is a need to “think like a river basin.” Leopold’s exhortation is from the early 1940s and is an invitation to see mountains not simply as a pile of forest, mining, water, landscape, flora and fauna or leisure resources, but as a value in itself to be preserved and used with care, respecting its dynamics, connections and spirit. The same thing could be said for forests, oceans or river basins, which made headlines during the scorching summer of 2022, but only because water was struggling to flow from taps and agricultural crops were burning under the sun and water was lacking to refresh them.

Rassecale, the story

At Rassecale (Mirabella Eclano, AV) we were welcomed by a young community, now undergoing renovation but still with many projects to come: Marco and Pauline are running their wonderful vegetable garden, Marina has moved from Spain to help with the animals. Arrived here as a WWOOFer, her story is a testimonial of how impactful our association can be on agricultural practice and people’s life.
