Group: Sustainable Local Economic Development

Welcome

The purpose of this group is to document viable alternatives by which any cluster of 1,000 people can sustain themselves through locally sourced food, water, green energy, and basic materials and manufactured goods.

Open participation is encouraged as your ideas, experiences, and perspectives are important.  There are no "right answers" or "only ways".  Please share so we all benefit!

This group site is perpetually "under construction".  New features and functions will be added and the appearance and interface will change based on a combination of your feedback and technology developments.  Please let us know your opinion!
