Clempt90 says:

Not sure about yet more green space and natural habitat being ruined by
human habitation

Alderfit says:

Mooi om te zien! Ik ben zelf bezig met permacultuur en mulchen in mijn
eigen tuin 😉 Hier heb ik ook een paar video’s over gemaakt. Ik hoop in de
toekomst ook dieren te houden! Leuke video!

St. Apollonius says:

Very nice if you can afford it.

Eifion Williams says:

I appload the low carbon initiatives, it has to happen. But let’s embrace
sustainability in in the widest possible sense and be sensitive to the
Welsh language that’s still a living language spoken by people everyday in
Pembrokeshire. I’m sure people at Lammas do take this on board, allthough
that doesn’t come over in the film. Ancient languages can unlock secrets in
the land if we embrace it. Lives are richer if we share, explore and learn.
These great projects can’t just be ex-pat enclaves with an assumption that
they have more to teach the locals than the other way around. We learn from
each other and sustainability needs to be seen more holistically by those
who claim to be it’s guardians or it will inevitably fail.

the entire city of Shanghai of almost 20 million people used to be
sufficiently supplied with vegetables and fruits grown with composted night
soil, livestock waste and agricultural biomass. 

Elizabeth Long says:

The Good, Clean and Healthy life! 🙂

thats what i hear. i’ve actually been looking into it for the past few
days, funny you mention it. it’s harder than it sounds to find, though

ManyThai says:

I’ve been thinking of joining an eco-village for some time, and I was just
wondering if most eco-villages will allow people like me, who have advanced
degrees (political science), to live on it and not farm, but still
contribute to the commune by purchasing supplies and other things for
communal property. Please answer.

Anthony Rizzo says:

It makes me look like an ass, really? You’re such a provocateur. Your
question is instigative. How about, you take my original comment at face
value instead? Because I don’t think you and I can have a productive
dialogue. Good bye. Have fun spitting in the wind.

Dean Counts says:

Its great the Welsh government is willing to do this but unfortunate
outsiders, non-Welsh are the ones taking advantage of it.

philiprawks says:

How can i get involved in volunteering for something like this?

Missy West says:

Christopher, if moving out of urban/suburban area is out of the question
for you, perhaps look into aquaculture, horticulture, vertical farming for
some ideas. Those are a lot better for smaller spaces. Also check bylaws in
regards to keeping chickens etc depending if you have at least some space
for them.

Anthony Rizzo says:

Now that it’s quiet and nobody is pestering me I can go about enjoying the
scenery. Oh look over there it’s a white back ground with letters on it. I
think I will stroll over there and see what it says. This is fun, off I go.

Anthony Rizzo says:

I wrote what I did because every Republican administration over the past 40
years has shown this to be the case. Besides what is wrong with what I
wrote? Should one generation exploit all the resources that predate their
existence simply because they have the access to do so? Is that your
stance? Do you wish to leave nothing for your children? Is one of your
values, selfishness? What a moron! Being on the right is not the problem.
It is what they have come to represent that is wrong.

how can i contact some of the owners of the ECO living ? i want to know
information and i would like to join ! please contact me

tia maat says:

I HATE COMMERCIALS !!!

bowehj96 says:

I could get sidetracked by the fact that the OP never claimed to be the
sole bearer of wisdom, or that you fail to mention why you think this
left-right spectrum is so bogus. Or I could iterate the question you so
skilfully dodged: How do people like you, ESPECIALLY if you don’t like the
“self-righteous morons” you seem to think make up the readership of the
Guardian, end up reading the Guardian? If ‘the right’ are so wonderfully
green, why not just find these videos on right-wing channels?

MsXtinaforever says:

who else is watchin this cause they are doing a sustainable city project??

MrSzviktor says:

At the beginning of 1990, communism regime felt. In my oppinion, both types
of society are good as long as they are not mixed together or not driven to
extremes.

MsXtinaforever says:

sorry but i dont c the point

Christopher Martin says:

I was thinking the same thing. This is not a reasonable thing for those of
us who occupy urban spaces. But roof top gardens would be a very good idea.
We should also have the gov subsidize the production of gardens in, on, or
around public buildings—schools, universities, fire dep, etc. what do you
think?

MrSzviktor says:

Well, i’ll tell you about communism in eastern Europe (Romania) a little:
we had, no houses of our own, no cars, food; heating, clothing, other main
necessity goods were short. The great majority of us(70-80%) were low payed
empolyees of the state. There was only one party to rule the country.
Bassically, everything was owned by state and managed by the gov. There
were no foreign mercendise. There was no unemployed, except some categories
(healt, detention, retired).

Piers Morgan says:

communism in action

Jessica Yu says:

chrishopper33 says:

power tools can be powered with electricity from wave power, wind power,
hydro power, is it called renewable energy sources. i suggest donsgal that
you think next time you make a comment.

Christopher Martin says:

Get mozilla ad blocker. It is free for the first year, then it cost like 5
dollars after that. You will never see another ad again. I love it, no ads
on any videos or anything!
