EarthHouse, LLC is inspired by the poet Gary Snyder’s book “Earth House Hold”.  The book reflects Snyder's deep ecological awareness and his belief in the interconnectedness of all living beings and their environments.  Snyder advocates for a more harmonious relationship between humans and nature, urging a greater understanding of our place within the global ecosystem.  The book is notable for its early articulation of principles that would later become central to the environmental movement, such as sustainability, bioregionalism, and deep ecology.  Snyder's work in "Earth House Hold" is often seen as a precursor to the modern environmental consciousness and has been influential in ecological and literary circles.
