“We abuse land because we regard it as a commodity belonging to us. When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect.” ~Aldo Leopold, A Sand County Almanac

"CAFOs are only profitable because so much of the cost and damage is externalized onto the environment, neighbors and wildlife. The monitoring, supervision, clean-up, restitution, fines are not happening, thus the true cost of CAFOs never find the way onto the balance books." Talking point from the CAFO Conference.

"The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated," Mahatma Gandhi
"Producers need to ask themselves what would the public think? How would ten people picked at random from an airport or bus station react to (your) animal rearing, transport or slaughter practices?"
Dr. Temple Grandin

We lost a good friend and CSP board member, when Dr. Robert Horwich passed away on February 7, 2017 after a brief and mysterious illness.

Rob will be remembered for a singular and profound life of working imaginatively, energetically, and effectively to catalyze community conservation around the world as well as in his home right here in Crawford County. He will be deeply missed, but his vision lives on in the many places he touched and people he inspired.  

Please go to this page to share your stories and images and tributes to Rob

There will be a memorial for Rob on March 11, 2017 at the Gays Mills Community Building, 16381 St Hwy 131, at 1:30 p.m.
