About this book

A brilliant scientist, prominent financier and visionary described his experiences with developing ecovillages that restore our sense of community and our connection to the earth while providing us with environmentally sound and sustainable sources of livelihood. Ross Jackson's vision contrasts sharply with the rootless, money-mad, exploitive world of the global economy. It is grounded in the practical experience of hundreds of ecovillage and green enterprise experiments that are being developed around the world. Anyone interest in global, regional or local environmentalism should read this book. It is especially useful and inspiring to those who think good things can't be done. This is a wonderful guide to the development of self-sustaining, green communities, you can learn from the experiences of someone who has fought environmental battles -- and won. It sets forth a clear, practical, feasible vision of the ecovillage. How to do it and how to sustain it.
