Revolutionaries. Must be willing to plant fruit trees. Must have a deep reverence for the Earth and all its creatures. Must not be afraid of dirt. Experience with compost and a willingness to tear up sod and plant veggies a positive. Those with skills and knowledge in construction, bridge building, glass making, pottery, metalworking, water collection and treatment, nuclear decommission, passive solar heating, animal husbandry, tool making, musical instrument making, hunting, fishing, textiles, cooking, plant propagation, windmills, herbs, medicinal plants, diesel engines, music, language and hydro-electric generation are encouraged to apply. Must be willing to pay attention to the cycles of the seasons, the cycles of the moon, and the importance of the sun. Must be willing to support people who have the skills listed above, who live in your community.

Must be willing to undermine one's acculturated assumptions about hierarchy, dominance, violence, resource exploitation, institutions, technology and infinite economic expansion. Must begin looking at Humanity from a species perspective, rather than the narrow labels of race, religion, nationality, etc. Must be willing to practice self-rule, and expect that of others. Must be willing to undo the ethic of every man for himself and the will to rule, inside oneself. Must be willing to consider that all the Universe is Divine, that you are a unique, astonishing and utterly beautiful manifestation of the Spirit, a Child of the Earth, Homo sapien sapien, Sacred.

If interested, offer yourself up in service to the Earth.
