Growing Eco-communities; Practical Ways to Create Sustainability

by Jan Martin Bang
£20.00   paperback  Floris Books (2007)

Growing Eco-communities; Practical Ways to Create Sustainability by Jan Martin Bang In his first book Ecovillages, Jan Martin Bang explained the principles and practicies of setting up a sustainable community, including difficult decisions about management, design and architecture, farming and food, water, sewage, energy sources and economics.
 
Growing Eco-Communitieslooks at what comes next. Groups aren't fixed by these early decisions: they grow and develop, and not always in expected directions. Jan Martin Bang provides an overview of the different phases and changes that groups can undergo and offers experienced advice on how to handle a wide range of situations that arise.
 
As in Ecovillages, the book is anchored by numerous case studies of real-life communities and how they've dealt with change. Throughout, the author addresses practical issues of flexibility, self-sufficiency, neighbours, technology, spirituality and money, among others.
 
This is a candid, inspiring and practical book which should be essential reading for anyone involved in an evolving community or non-residential group, club or association.
