Ecovillages: A Practical Guide to Sustainable Communities

by Jan Martin Bang
£20.00   paperback  Floris Books (2005)

Ecovillages: A Practical Guide to Sustainable Communities by Jan Martin Bang The Ecovillages movement is a worldwide network of communities which strive to integrate a supportive social environment with a low-impact way of life. Examples include Kibbutz, Camphill communities and others based on frameworks such as Permaculture.
 
This book explores the background and history of 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. In the final chapter, the author brings eveything together in a step-by-step guide.
 
This book is packed with handy tips, useful insight and sage advice throughout. Theory is brought to life in a series of striking Living Example case-studies from around the world.
