Prairitopian is a bi-monthly newsletter dedicated to the establishment of a socially and environmentally sustainable society in Saskatchewan.
Abstract: Prairitopian is a bi-monthly newsletter dedicated to the establishment of a socially and environmentally sustainable society in Saskatchewan. It is written and printed primarily by one farm family and is financed entirely by the $2.00 annual subscription charge. The newsletter provides a commentary on environmental issues, reviews of relevant literature, notice of upcoming events and some news coverage.
The primary purpose of Prairitopian is to present proposals for action that would lead to a sustainable society. It is particularly interested in actually creating, on a small scale, the kind of society that they are advocating; the small, intentional rural and urban communities that are self-governing and relatively self-sufficient economically and socially.
They hope to expand activities to include practical direct action and are looking for volunteers who are willing to help in this work. Volunteers receive room and board on a farm in parklands in Saskatchewan.
