Since 2008, they have been tenuously employed – working one-year contracts, consulting on the side, hustling to survive.

Stephen Jones 6 years ago Reply Its all about redefining the idea of work for me, so that what I do for a living helps me, my community, and our local eco-systems to thrive, its one of hell of a task, but surprisingly things do fall into place once you’ve dipped your toes in the water, synergy is all around us waiting to connect 🙂 Stephen Jones 6 years ago Reply Was great to meet you by the way Ed, chatting around the fire about produce at Offgrid last year 🙂 Josef Davies-Coates 6 years ago Reply yeah, I don’t find the idea of a full time job at all attractive. But secure regular income (or rather, a regular means of ensuring food and shelter is covered) is still nice. I hope to soon find/ make a nicely enough paid part-time job that covers the basics (and to help bring about a basic income for all) Josef Davies-Coates 6 years ago Reply Josef Davies-Coates liked this on Facebook.
