Summary
Over the course of four years, A. Whitney Sanford visited over fifteen intentional communities - ecovillages, cohousing communties, Catholic worker houses and farms - where individuals are striving to forego a hurried, distracted existence and embrace a mindful and productive way of life. In this engaging book, Sanford shares insights from people who are designing and testing positive forms of sustainable living while finding creative solutions to resolve conflicts within their communities. She examines their methods of reviving and adapting traditional agrarian skills, testing alternate building materials for their homes, and developing local governments that balance group needs and individual autonomy. Living Sustainably is a teachable testament to the idea that new cultures based on justice and sustainability are attainable in many ways and in countless homes and communities. Sanford's engaging and insightful work demonstrates that citizens can make a conscious effort to subsist in a more balanced, harmonious world. -- from back cover
