Do you have “milpa” in your area?

Do you have “milpa” in your area?

Usually we don’t have this in the U.S. you did read usually.  I know of some near us but it can be restored.  What I don’t understand is that in the natural course of things this will take care of itself.  Now for the meaning of (mil’pe) a forest cultivated until the land is exhausted, then abandoned.  I often wonder what goes in its place

Hi James - Just look in Africa where they have cut down all the forests and land won't support any growth.

Hi James,

Give it time and mother nature will take over again. Sad part is, it will take a very long time.

Good word of the day.

Best, Clint Mckie

Good morning, James. Good word! Sadly, man will never learn and will soon wonder why the land is so barren...

I am a PahPah.  Is that the same thing, with a twist?

Some days I feel cultivated until exhausted.  It has to be close...

In the 60's, 70's and 80's I believe we called it urban sprawl! Hope we will learn something from this! Enjoy your day!

Good morning James. If I understand it correctly this is a concern. Seems to me we should cherish nature and proect it, but hey, that's my view. Just sayin...
