We need to think carefully what to grow in our eco-village in order to obtain maximum of healthy nutriens spending minimum time and effort. This is what was traditionally planted in autumn in some temperate and subtropical regions.

This is what crop plants Nan K. Chase recomends, presumable for North America: Parsley, Coriander, Radishes, Greens (Spinach, chard, kale and lettuce), Horseradish, Rhubarb, Strawberries, Chives, Onions, Leeks and Garlic.systems

Please keep in mind that we all differ in what food is better for us. Some have allergies, others can’t stand too much acidity, etc. Some edible vegetables could become toxic if used too much, for example rhubarb contains a bit of poisonous oxalic acid.

A family can’t be, as they start and split, kids grow up and move, partners unfortunately outlive each other. Some people just want to stay single. There should be a recognizable community all people could belong if they wished. Workplaces change, more and more people work from home. Yet everybody needs to live somewhere.isolation1

I think to feed the hunger of belonging, all places of living should have real active neighbourhood communities, so nobody feels isolated and not cared for.

This may not necessary be called an ecovillage but still should exist. It won’t happen overnight. We all need to get used to the idea of being friends to our neighbours and moving into a neighbourhood, into an intentional community, not just buying an affordable house, – as a step towards a happier future.

In his article “Britain’s Dangerous New Tribalism

As long as the group ideology is not dogmatic and people are free to leave I see this as a positive trend. Hopefully the time will come when people will be able to decide where exactly to live based on where like-minded people are living. This is a way to form friendly neighborhoods, real intentional communities everywhere.
