Researcher presents ‘Scott Nearing on American Law and Order’


HARBORSIDE – On Sunday, August 1 at 4 p.m. at the Good Life Center, Vermont researcher and homesteader Greg Joly will review a 1923 writing by Scott Nearing that
explores the connection between power, money and the uneven application of law enforcement. If you think the previous presidential administration was the worst example of leadership malfeasance, come explore Scott’s thoughts on an equally corrupt era now a hundred years old, but still sadly contemporary.

The Good Life Center summer lecture series has moved from its traditional Monday night format to Sunday afternoon to facilitate an outdoor event that allows for social distancing. Afternoon events will take place rain or shine, in a tent on the lawn of the iconic Nearing Farm. Bring your lawn chair, come early and enjoy the beautiful scenery and gardens, visit the handmade stone house and visit the interesting yurts on the property. No admission fee, suggested donation only.

The mission of the Good Life Summer Lecture Series is to engage and inspire community members to think about the most current social issues in a creative and progressive way. The title of the lecture series is borrowed from the signature of the famous book by Helen and Scott Nearing (Living the Good Life): “Living healthily and simply in a troubled world”. The Good Life Center is located at Harborside at Forest Farm, the final property of back-to-the-land authors and icons Helen and Scott Nearing. The Good Life Center is open Thursday to Monday, 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. or by appointment. To see the speakers and upcoming events at the Good Life Center, you can go to
or dial 207-326-8211.
