“It’s about transforming the way we treat water, magical life-giving water. Honoring water, people, and wildlife takes concrete form through the technologies and practices we embrace.
“It’s about life, not lifestyle. It’s about the way to a massively reconstructed and enchanting way of being human.”
Barbara Bradley, 2009
