Applying Sustainability principles in day to day life - where you live now.

For those that don’t want to move to an eco-village setting, or for those that this is a long way in the future, most of the principles discussed in the site can be applied to your present living situation.


From the simple small scale:

  1. *plant a fruit tree somewhere nearby

  2. *grow a small herb garden in a box on your widow sill.

  3. *Join or from a local community garden

  4. *Free-Cycle


Larger scale:

  1. *apply some of the eco building principles when retro fitting your home.

  2. *apply some eco-building principles when renovating or extending.

  3. *turn your back yard into a food forest.

  4. *
