My name is Scott Wischmeyer. I started Our Tiny Earth to document our transition to a life of sustainability, but in the past couple months, I have become overwhelmed with work, and also with anxiety. When I made the choice to take on this challenge, I was unaware of where it would go, as I was unaware the depth I would have to reach to truly accept the role as sustainable. In the past few months I have found myself second guessing the choices I have made throughout my life and what I am doing with my life now. As I preach community, I’m working for an international IT company. I find this less rewarding than I find it painful. It’s killing my soul. It’s killing who I am and what I believe in.
I know I have been out of the picture for quite some time now. I feel that I have let down my readers and I vow to change that.
In the next few months, I am going to step it up more than I have ever before. Our Tiny Earth is no longer going to be a simple blog about my own transition into sustainability, but a documentation of a city as a whole. Instead of just talking about supporting our local farmers and small businesses, I will bring the farmers and the small businesses to you. You will get to know the people for who they are and the ethical standards in which they follow. I will show you not only my methods of farming and gardening, but also the methods of people within the community.
As Our Tiny Earth continues to grow, I hope to do this full time. I believe Our Tiny Earth might be a small step to the revival of what was once a beautiful city something to offer everyone. It’s no longer about just myself, it’s about us. This is OUR Tiny Earth.
