By Corley Kenna   |   Dec 5, 2017 December 5, 2017

Yesterday, the president didn’t just reduce the boundaries of your public lands. He revoked two national monuments. No president has ever done that before. It is widely unpopular and unprecedented. It is also illegal, and Patagonia will be challenging his action in court. The president also lied. Here is a… Read More

Of course climbing was the main reason I wanted to go to South Africa. Nonetheless, climbing in such a beautiful landscape makes the whole experience about ten times better. Just like my first visit in 2012, I was blown away by the beauty of this sea of black-orange sandstone, the incredible sunsets and sunrises, the stars at night, the animals. Seeing this view every day doesn’t get boring at all and the moment you leave you realize even more how pretty it is. Rocklands, South Africa. Photo: Ken Etzel

Becoming a Boulderer

Why is Unstructured Play Crucial?

By Patagonia   |   Nov 29, 2017 November 29, 2017

Patagonia has offered corporate-sponsored on-site childcare since 1983. The Great Pacific Child Development Center, GPCDC for short, is where infants and children spend their days crawling, running, climbing and exploring, mostly outdoors, while their parents work.

It’s been a crazy couple of weeks—a whirlwind of events, to say the least. Seems like the world got turned over in less than a month. Natural disasters are igniting on all sides of the globe. Could it be that the planet is trying to tell us something? Is humanity… Read More

The Night They Drove Organic Down

By Dave Chapman   |   Nov 20, 2017 November 20, 2017

Looking back on the USDA meeting in Jacksonville, I am left with anger, grief and a sense of urgency that we keep moving forward. The meeting of the National Organic Standards Board (NOSB) was an historical turning point for the National Organic Program (NOP). Read More

If you were to ask me what I did on the Danube River during my 21-day solo paddle from Ingolstadt, Germany to Belgrade, Serbia, my answer is simple. I fought crime, outran bad guys in speedboats with machine guns, almost died a few times from river monsters and 20-foot waves… Read More
