Abstract
 
Description
The Ecovillages movement is a worldwide network of communities that strive to integrate a supportive social environment with a low-impact lifestyle, including Kibbutz, Camphill communities, and others based on such frameworks as permaculture. Ecovillages explores the background and history of the Ecovillages movement and provides 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. In the final chapter, the author brings it all together in a systematic guide. 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, including Sunrise Farm, Australia; Woodcrest Bruderhof, New York; Camphill Solborg; Kibbutz Lotan; Findhorn, Scotland; Kimberton Hills Camphill, Pennsylvania; ZEGG, Germany; Wilhelmina, Holland; Earthaven Ecovillage, North Carolina; Twin Oaks Community, Virginia; Anghieri, Italy; Kibbutz Ketura; Terre d'Enaille, Belgium; Kibbutz Samar; Lebensgarten, Germany; New Bassaisa, Egypt; and La Paix-Dieu, Belgium. - from Amzon
