Sustainable Living

I discovered Tiny Houses and an array of information via web searches for viable ways of downsizing and living more affordably. Along the way some sites stood out and led to further investigations which have expanded my horizon, my mind, my heart and my soul. Hopefully here you will find like minded individuals to journey along with as we travel along this incredible life.

FairCompanies is one such place. Created by Kirsten Dirksen and Nicolás Boullosa. These two, along with their children, have traveled extensively and documented those sojourns. They walk the talk. Here to get you started a documentary by Kirsten. Prepare yourself a refreshing beverage. Sit back, relax and enjoy.

​He descubierto la Pequeña Casa movimiento y una variedad de información a través de la web en busca de formas viables de reducción y vivir de forma más asequible. A lo largo del camino algunos sitios se destacaron y llevaron a investigaciones adicionales que han ampliado mi horizonte, mi mente, mi corazón y mi alma. Esperemos que aquí encontrarás personas afines para viajar juntos a lo largo de esta vida increíble.
FairCompanies es uno de estos lugares. Creado por Kirsten Dirksen y Nicolás Boullosa. Estos dos, junto con sus hijos, han viajado extensamente y documentado esos viajes y experiencias personales con individios ya viviendo mas sencillamente. Caminan su charla. Aquí para empezar un documental de Kirsten. Prepárate una bebida refrescante. Siéntate, relájate y disfruta.​

…Self-organized commons are undergoing a renaissance today as one of the most robust alternatives to modern-day capitalism…Self-organized commons are undergoing a renaissance today as one of the most robust alternatives to contemporary capitalism. They include such diverse endeavors as seed-sharing cooperatives in India, community gardening in major cities, open source software programming, D.I.Y. hackerspaces, FabLabs, scientific disciplines that publish their research in open-access journals, and local food initiatives such as community supported agriculture, Slow Food, and permaculture…

We are on our way!!! Cyclist contribute in so many ways to our communities. Atlanta metro was already on the bandwagon with local organizations such as The Atlanta Bicycle Coalition and The Southern Bicycle League and now with the added incentive of ‘PeopleForBikes‘ we can forge ahead, really make some progress, connect all the dots from north to south and east to west. I would like to personally congratulate and thank Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed who stands firm with cycling Atlanta and is very much committed to getting Atlanta to the top ten cities for cycling by the year 2016.​ (several videos follow)

Co-viviendas está vivo y bien en España. Este es un gran modelo a emular. No el típico. “esto es quién somos y si se une… ” Esto es participativo. Es co-crear con otros también crear su propio espacio y participación. Ahora es el momento para un ambiente más intergeneracional, económico, ecológico y sostenible.

Co-housing is alive and well in Spain. This is a great model to emulate. Not the typical. “this is who we are and if you join…” This is participatory. You co-create with others yet also create your own space and involvement. The time is now for a more inter- generational, economical, ecological and sustainable environment.
