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?
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%.
