Carfree city / ecovillage under construction in Belize!
It's definitely not large enough to be a city, but cars are
prohibited, all toilets are composting, all electricity is
renewably generated, etc.
(I couldn't tell, but it looks like less than 1,000 parcels
of ~6 - 9 thousand sq feet each?)
I came upon it from http://escapeartist.com,
wondering where I might buy an acre of land for cheap to
practice permaculture/forest garden construction on.
I'm also using this as an excuse to announce
to the IC/EV community--from now on I won't spam you all,
I'll just post these messages (about carfree ecovillages) there.
There are still some 6,300 sq feet parcels for less than
$20,000 (Which I figure is close to the tribal housing price
range ? :) )
I'm not quite yet ready to buy property yet, but I'm
starting to think about it.
I've been reading _Gaia's Garden_ _Gardening for the future
of the earth_, and _how to make a forest garden_.
For a real forest garden, you want to be working with the
same land for at least 5-10 years, so being a nomad might
not work unless you're able to plant plants you value in
places you can expect them to remain undisturbed for that
long-- which does seem possible.
Which reminds me: here's a nomadic / neoprimitive project
that I found: (1,500 acres in Baja California - I guess
that's less than 3sq miles? not much to be a nomad on...)
