Review for Self Sustaining Communities, San Pablo, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This community of volunteers has changed lives for the better and changed a city. The Executive Director's vision, energy and political savvy combine with people who have the resources to make a real and sustainable difference in the world. Donated fruit and nut trees get planted, then are watered using Stanford-inspired technology. Low income neighbors become a self-sustaining community through building, planting and harvesting food. Diets are supplemented by eggs from their own chickens and honey from their own bees; aquaponics grow greens and fish for even better-balanced diets in what used to be food deserts. The whole fabric of the Community is thoughtfully connected to continue self-sustenance. Brilliant!
