Promise of Paradise Episde 44: Michael Riddell

Oct 4, 2019

October 3, 2019 — Michael Riddell moved onto Greenfield Ranch with his two young daughters on Solstice of 1976.He was in the military in the early sixties, then became active in the radical student anti-war movement. He’s comfortable with the types of seemlingly contradictory things  that characterize the back to the land epoch, like hiring a water dowser to locate a good place to build a pond, then building that pond according to specs from an Army Corps of Engineers manual. Now, he pays his taxes and his road association fees, grows fruit trees and raspberries, and takes pride in the accomplishments of his three grown daughters.
