Sustain Jefferson Jefferson County, Wisconsin

New book group reading "Prosper!"

"Prosper! How to Prepare for the Future and Create a World Worth Inheriting," by Chris Martenson and Adam Taggart, challenges the old narrative that constant exponential growth is good or even possible on a finite planet. It not only describes how to prepare a prosperous future, but also offers an invitation to better health, financial security, better relationships and a life with purpose, happiness and abundance. It provides a different narrative of living within our means, creating abundance and changing values.
