What is the Nature Folk Movement (NFM)?
It’s about simplifying and getting in tune with nature.
And you can’t have a Nature Folk Movement (NFM) without a guitar by a campfire. That’s just obvious. And it also requires other chipping in. Individually we can get back with nature until the cows come home, but it takes others to really make the grassroots and growing movement we aspire it to be. Who are those groups?
Short list of groups and activities we support:
(1) Attend a Campfire Talk (at CampfirePark.Org)
Sick of the rat race? How about kicking back around the campfire to hear a campfire talk. The campfire is the place we gather to reconnect with nature and talk about what is essential in life. We think you’ll enjoy this modern-day reboot of the ancient tradition.
(2) Ride the Water Cycle (at GoHydrology.Org)
There’s no better way to get back in touch with nature than by tuning in with the water cycle. Whether it’s a recent shift in the skies or a new water flow pattern in the deep swamp, Go Hydrology is your passport into the innerworkings of the water cycle.
(3) Hear a Campfire Shanty (at BobbyAngel.Org)
Are you bored of “reading” about conservation topics? Well how about listening to a campfire shanty that explores the topic at a whole new level. Bobby Angel is a balladeer whose growing archive of songs and albums helped inspire the Nature Folk Movement (NFM).
(4) Rediscover your Bookshelf (at ReReadable.Org)
Over a decade after the invention of the smartphone, the bookshelf has been cast away on the dust heap like so much else. No longer. Rereadble resuscitates the old (and new) books on our bookshelf back to life, and ponders out loud what being rereadable is all about.
(5) Journey Back to Before Phones (BP) (at BeforePhones.Org)
Granted, it was a bizarre time, but believe it or not people once survived (even thrived) in the pre-phone era, also known as the Great Phonelessness. Join the researchers at Before Phones as they uncover the latest archeological finds about this cryptic historical period.
(6) Get into Good Penmanshape (at Penmanshape.Org)
Sick of “thumbing” everything you write? And let’s face it, using a keyboard may be writing, true – but it’s also keeping you in front of a screen. There’s no better workout for the hands and the mind than sitting down with a blank piece of paper and a killivine (that’s just a fancy word for a pen!)
Now for a short list of groups we do not support. And folks, I cannot impress upon you enough — STEER CLEAR OF THE BOOGIE PHONE!
Steer clear of Boogie!
Boogie is bad news!
