Global ecovillage network GEN

is a network of communities that are consciously developing environmentally sound ways of living.

GEN offers inspiring examples of how people and communities can live healthy, cooperative, genuinely happy and meaningful lifestyles — beacons of hope that help in the transition to a more sustainable future on Earth. We foster a culture of mutual respect, sharing, inclusiveness, positive intent, and fair energy exchange.

Permaculture is generally thought of as a system of holistic, natural agriculture, but it is actually much more:

Permaculture works with nature to make a better world for all. By observing the natural world we can see a set of principles at work. Permaculture design uses these principles to develop integrated systems that provide for our needs of food, shelter, energy and community in ways that are healthy and efficient. We can use permaculture design methods to improve the quality and productivity of our individual lives, our society and our environment.

You can find local projects from the Permaculture Association. Also see Permaculture Magazine.
