About Me

I've been interested in ecovillages for a long, lone time.

I have a strong interest in ecological design, human ecology, ecological economics, etc....

My Ideas and Dreams about Eco-Village Living

I'm interested especially in car-free (or mostly car-free) very low carbon lifeways which seek to maximize quality of life while disregarding or transcending the "discourse" of "standard of living".

One of my favorite fantasies is that a group of us ecovillage enthusiasts somehow convince the residents of an existing small town to retrofit the whole town as an off-grid, mostly car-free eco-town with the lowest carbon economy anywhere. Of course, I'm equally interested in overall well-being in the town -- not just the "low carbon" and ecologically sustainable part.
