Volume X – Sustainable Food, Energy, and Transportation

Does your community hold sustainability as a shared value?

While there are a number of shared values an intentional community may live by, sustainability is commonly one of them. Living cooperatively, in practice, impacts our carbon footprint, transportation use, and food consumption.

Many communities embody sustainability as a shared value with:

  • collective gardening
  • land regeneration
  • shared meals
  • vehicle coops
  • alternative energy
  • and so much more!

The following 15 articles offers inspiration and practical advice about what it takes to meet your basic needs close to home.

You will recognize authors leading the intentional community movement, representing cutting-edge thinking and how-to explorations of the social, ecological, and economic aspects of sustainable living.
