Sustainable living conjures up ideas of living in the country, growing vegetables, and keeping chickens – but a moment’s reflection shows that there has to be a lot more to it than that.
Not only do certain basic functions, such as food supply, have to be sustainable, but also one’s interactions with the rest of the world. This obvious fact quickly leads to seemingly insolvable paradoxes. For instance, having children is clearly an integral part of a sustainable lifestyle – but not when you are incapable of bringing them up to live a sustainable lifestyle themselves. For this reason, this site does not just deal with issues such as gardening and building, but will also have articles about health, education, community, business, and government.
