An interesting article about the long term (13,000 years) of humans living in coastal forests.

As long as we are working off of sweat equity (not stored energy/fossil fuels), and not trying to generate a profit off of the land I figure we are just another critter adding to the biodiversity.September 2, 2016 at 9:56 am #89367RonParticipant
That is a great article thank you for posting it.
I have been in Europe and spoke to people whose families have bred the same lines of livestock and been the steward on the same farm for over 700 years. The land that they kept in trust from their fathers got better with each succeeding generation. To them this article would be of no surprise. However today these farm families are almost all gone and their lands sold. While it is illegal in England to hunt foxes it is OK to us force to suppress BSE and Foot and Mouth and the resulting rural extinction.
Maybe those of us who are stewards of land have something in come with indigenous people after all.
