    Hey,

    I’d like to learn hands-on sustainable living – from solar/wind/thermal/battery etc; to housing, gardening, food preserving, off-grid living in general – the whole enchilada.
    Are there any good communities/places/programs in the world to do this?

    Thanks

    There is a huge internet community. http://www.daveramsey.com   for getting rid of debt first. http://www.thesurvivalpodcast.com for a huge forum and podcast about much to do with this topic. http://blog.larrydgray.net is my blog and I have some info on this kind of thing. And then there is this web site and forum. And there are probably others.

    So where to do you plan to begin? do you have land yet? I recommend getting land 10 miles from city limits in a county somewhere. What is the climate for the land where you will live. Its good if you could camp on the land for a year before building. And its not so much living sustainably as it is continuously gaining a greater percentage of sustainability.

    The first thing I did was have only one child at 39(1988).  Then read the book “Earthship” and the Solar Living Sourcebook from the local library(1993).   Then a few more books, and a lot of effort over several years(1997-2000).  Our eco-footprint is 1/20th the American average.  We may have 9 more years to reduce emissions 90%.
