Live Quietly On The Earth,

Hi,

.

It’s a much nicer day here today.

Very cold before the sun came up, but sunny now with a pale blue sky….and no rain at all!

.

I don’t expect anyone is keen on going back to work this Tuesday morning, after the Bank Holiday weekend, but at least next weekend will be here sooner than it normally would be.

.

I have been reading about Bio Tecture again lately.

The newest innovations are vertical walls of planting.

The thought is that cities are not provided with the open spaces and acreage needed for food growth, so the only way is up!

.

If this innovation is embraced then cities could provide a portion of the foodstuffs needed to feed their population, saving on the amounts needed to be ferried in to them from outside.

We keep reading warnings about how the cities will be a nightmare if a situation arises where worldwide supplies of food and energy are reduced …and people begin to go hungry because these days we cannot support ourselves.

A part of the solution could be Bi Tecture.

This thinking was started in the 70’s, when the Architect Michael Reynolds designed and created a new kind of home called an Earthship.

This is a fabulous way of living which uses conservation and recycling along with food grown in the home.

It is a way of living quietly on the Earth.

.

Just look at the Biotecture style of life, when a community of these homes were designed and built in New Mexico.

This sustainable way of living is all totally off the grid.

No need for anything extra to be provided.
It is truly living close to the earth.

It is fascinating and you can still have computers etc. as you wish, depending upon how the homes are customised.

Take a look at this video.

It definately makes you think about the way we choose to live at present because something has to give.

Have a fine day and make sure that you eat something nice….while you can!
