Sustainable Living in the City

Maybe I am not the only crazy one...

Local couple pens guide for sustainable city living

With more than half the world’s population living in cities, the couple believes that sustainability can no longer be thought of as something that applies only to forests and fields but as something that anyone can practice, anywhere.

“It’s about creating intensely cultivated, sustainable societies in as small a place as possible,” Kellogg said.
They also feel that it’s important to work with neighbors and build intra-dependent communities where people help and support each other.
“This is not an individual survivalist mindset,” Pettigrew said. “This is about community.”

Pretty cool article. You've made a good choice living in the NE! We still look askance as those weird hippies who recycle their trash, sigh.
