The fact is that Biosphere 2 itself has been well documented and made known worldwide - but largely ignored by many of us B2 neighbors is the enduring impact on Oracle as a community. Which happens to be a part of the larger story that requires local telling.
Maybe a place to start is with individuals who played important roles in the Great Experiment itself and continued to put down deep roots in our town. Several are still around infusing Oracle with their personal and collective selves.
I don't know how to properly characterize folks like this. "Leaders", "pacesetters", "history makers". None of the descriptives seem to capture who they are and how they have impacted Oracle.
Kaz and I moved to Oracle in 1979. The house we bought dated to the late 1940s. With little advance knowledge of the place, we set out to build a new life together, intending to settle in and raise a family.
