My step-brother is doing something sort of amazing. He bought a house on some land and is in the early stages of building an EcoVillage, or sustainable community called Dandelion. The property is beautiful and for the first time in two years I got the slightest taste of fall, as the leaves are just starting to fall and crunch underfoot. We walked through the gardens, stopping occasionally to pick raspberries, peppers and squash. It's an awesome concept and I hope he gets the funding and support he needs to make it a reality.
