Ecovillages–A Practical Guide is available for purchase at our bookstore.
This beautiful book is part story-telling, part ecovillage travel guide, with lively chapters on building techniques, alternative technology, agriculture etc.
Written by a man with an obvious travel bug, an inquisitive mind and a talent for the written word, Ecovillages is a beautiful book you’ll want on your coffee table… only after you’re done reading it cover to cover.
Bang’s engaging and personal tone will keep you captivated. You’ll find yourself learning about an unlikely array of topics ranging from the formation of the Global Ecovillage Network to Feng Shui to biodynamic agriculture.
Yet what’s most thrilling about this book are the many colorful inserts describing more than twenty ecovillages around the world, including Camphill communities, Kibbutzim and several intentional communities in the United States.
This insight into the global ecovillage movement worldwide is simply fascinating to read about. To anyone thinking of living in an ecovillage, this book is bound to be thought provoking as well as inspiring.
