Environmental Conservation: conserving and regenerating the earth and environment, including watershed, soil, air, plant life, insects, animals, natural ecosystems, and other precious, natural resources.
Food Production: Producing healthy, organic, nutrient rich local food without poisonous oil based pesticides, oil based farming machinery and transport, or GMO seeds.
Renewable Energy: Minimizing fossil fuel use in all our systems, choosing solar over coal, walking, biking, and electric vehicles over gas, etc
Energy Efficiency: Smarter materials, homes, systems, use, and management.
Permaculture: Implementing a balanced, holistic, regenerative approach to all our living systems.
Any gas vehicles will be kept to the perimeter of the community, and parked under a solar cover, insuring safety, clean air, and peaceful ambiance within the community.
