Cosmic Bob's Plan for Your Life

as revealed to Douglas Bullock

As you know, there are a lot of people these days wanting to make a positive change here on earth, you are probably one of them yourself, the big question is... What to do?

Are you thinking about a green eco-ag program at one of those liberal arts Universities? Are you planning on designing your own degree or do you want University credit for independent study?

Do you think/believe that your professors and/or counselors are telling you the truth? Does someone living in a 3000sq.ft. golden medallion home (total electric), and driving a S.U.V. to work to teach about sustainability, seem a little far-fetched?

Are you ready to blow school off all together or are you finishing it and are a bit disillusioned about what to do next? If you can identify with any of these, then Cosmic Bob's Plan may be what you're looking for!

Cosmic Bob's plan will help you develop your own ideas about sustainable agriculture and right livelihood and gain a better understanding of whole systems, biology and life's process.

Be a first choice valuable intern on the farm you want! Make better decisions, be prepared if you plan to get your own land or join a community. O.K. take a deep breath, here is the plan...

Year one

Year two

Year three

Year four


These years may be accelerated and or condensed and certainly more shrubs and trees should be planted if at all possible. If planted early they will be fruiting in the last two years.
