Needs/Yields Web Site

To figure out where to start, I used Dave’s, from Food Forest fame, template:  Value Trees.   I brainstormed all of the things I value and those values became the roots of my trees.  They fit into 4 different trees:  growing and eating my own food; recycling all of our water; living with nature inside the house; connecting with others. I simplified them into one word roots:  Food, Water, Shelter, and Sharing.  I’m considering if those should be my pages?  It’s interesting that those are the basics of Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs!
