Description : The Ecovillages movement is a worldwide network of communities which aim to integrate as much as possible into the natural environment. Examples include kibbutz, Camphill communities, and others guided by frameworks such as Permaculture, which work with the land as a creative alternative to the wasteful and exploitative practices of mainstream society.
This book explores the background and history to the Ecovillages movement, and goes on to provide a comprehensive manual for planning, establishing and maintaining a sustainable community. Issues discussed include leadership and conflict management, house design, building techniques, farming and food production, water and sewage, energy sources and alternative economics.
Throughout, the book is packed with handy tips, useful insights and sage advice. Theory is brought to life in a series of striking ‘Living Example’ case studies from around the world.
