Welcome to Ozarks Neighborly Exchange, also known as O.N.E. We are happy you found us and hope that you will join us on our mission of “neighbors helping neighbors”.

We are a group of gardeners, farmers, entrepreneurs, and caring folks from many walks of life whose goal is to come together and create self sufficiency through the unity of our neighbors. Since food is something we all need for our survival, our priority is to be able to feed ourselves LOCALLY. Grow what you can and get the rest from your neighbors. We can do anything when we work together, so let’s make it happen!

Speaking of making it happen, please consider helping us with our Sorghum Cook Shack Project. Please pass this link to all the people in your social circles you think would be interested. Thanks!

It’s that time once again for our 4th annual O.N.E. Congress. We’ve got a great line-up of speakers again this year you’ll surely not want to miss. Lutie school has invited us back to use their facilities. For those who came last year please note we’re moving the vendors into the cafeteria and the gym will be used for all of the presentations so there will be plenty of space for everyone!

We would greatly appreciate it if you would print a copy of this event flier to post wherever you may go in your daily activies. The flier contains all of the important information including the schedule and list of speakers as shown below. Looking forward to meeting you!

  • Hiya, I am really glad I’ve found this information. Nowadays bloggers publish just about gossips and internet and this is actually irritating. A good site with interesting content, that is what I need. Thanks for keeping this web site, I’ll be visiting it. Do you do newsletters? Cant find it.

      Thanks Danilo for the kind words. Unfortunately we don’t publish a newsletter. The best way to keep abreast with O.N.E.’s activities is to visit our forum, where we publish meeting minutes every month. I hope that helps, and thanks for visiting!

  • I am extremely impressed with your writing skills as well as with the layout on your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself? Either way keep up the nice quality writing, it’s rare to see a great blog like this one today

      That’s some mighty high praise Buildbox, and we do appreciate it! The Blue Peace theme is not a paid theme. There is a link to the author at the bottom of the page (in very small font) for more info. Thanks for stopping by!

    I would like to believe that technology is one of the aspects in our society that has promoted individuality the destruction of our families communities. Though, with everyone now embracing technology, we need to create the tools in which we can allow our neighbors to collaborate with one-another again. This bridge between the natural and digital, I believe, will help reconstruct ties with those geographically near and far.

      Thank you Joseph for the thoughtful comments. What would the state of the world be without technological advances? Technology is just a tool to achieve an end, it isn’t good or bad it’s the intent of those wielding it that determines if it helps or hinders mankind. If it weren’t for technology slavery would probably still exist, and diseases would cut the lives of many short. Until mankind learns the importance of Socrates words, “Know thyself” the world will be filled with psychopaths, violence and evil. It is only through self knowledge we can stop this repeating pattern. It is a slow, multi-generational process.
