Nature is not a place to visit. It is home.”
~ Gary Snyder

Sustainable Living is a way of life that takes us back to the way that our forefathers lived. Let us tread lightly on the earth, in such a way that we leave it as good as we found it, if not better.

Sustainable Living is also about creating economical homes using renewable and recycled materials, and finding ways to use less energy, by changing our habits, and utilizing more energy efficient appliances. Let’s reduce our carbon footprint, and minimize our waste. We need to learn to grow and raise our own food, support local farmers, and businesses, and become self-sustaining.  We can be smarter with our dwindling water resources by utilizing rainwater, and graywater to water our gardens, and becoming waterwise with newer technologies like aquaponics.

We need to come together as a community to find better ways of doing things, so that we can leave this planet so that it can be enjoyed by future generations.  Please feel free to join in the forum Think Tank to discuss any of these topics.
