Our guests this month are a fascinating couple, Kevin and Donna Philippe-Johnson, creators of the EarthStar Primal Habitat, a sustainable living model.  Kevin & Donna have written several articles published on their website and in Countryside Magazine about how they left the 9-to-5 life behind, moved to "our little hut in the woods" as Kevin calls it, and are truly enjoying "happily ever after".  On nearly no annual income, they have good health, abundant free time for creative activities, and a very peaceful life in harmony with the Nature around them.
