“Imagine a community sharing resources from building to building." -The International Living Future Institute
suggests there might be a place
where we can meet Nature halfway." ----Michael Polan
When you picture a housing development, you might imagine golf courses, swimming pools, and rows of identical houses.
We employ a new community model that taps into the local food movement where farms; complete with greenhouses, gardens, orchards, and animals; are the latest neighborhood amenity.
In an era where it is easy to loose track of where our food comes from and how it is grown, using local organic resources is not only a better way to protect the land, but also our bodies. Just as the farm-to-table movement has inspired chefs to use fresh, local ingredients to enhance their menus, farm-to-table communities provide residents a place to feed their bodies, and renew their spirits.
Our organic farm-to-table communities artfully blend holistic wellness with technological innovation to enhance our connection to Nature, and each other.
TREATING WATER NATURE'S WAY
Fresh water is a precious resource.
Our renewable water echnology blends cutting-edge science and engineering with plants and beneficial bacteria to efficiently treat and reuse wastewater. Our energy efficient systems, designed on the principles of wetland ecology, become more affordable and accessible when designed on a community scale.
HARNESSING THE POWER OF THE EARTH
Our community-scale solar power systems also unlock the “sweet spot” in the U.S. clean-energy marketplace by optimizing solar siting, maximizing electrical production, standardizing system design, and reducing system redundancy.
PROMOTING HEALTH & WELL-BEING
Changing the way we build and maintain our indoor environment, where we spend up to 90 percent of our time, can have an enormous impact on our health and well-being.
That's why select naturally healthy, renewable building materials that create net-zero toxins. Our research-based methods measure the impact on air, water, nourishment, light, fitness, comfort, and mind.
