   schema:reviewBody ""In his first book Ecovillages, Jan Martin Bang explained the principles and practice of setting up a sustainable community, including difficult decisions about management, design and architecture, farming and food, water, sewage, energy sources and economics." "Growing Eco-Communities looks at what comes next. Groups aren't fixed by those early decisions: they grow and develop, and not always in expected directions. Jan Martin Bang provides an overview of the different phases and changes that groups can undergo and offers experienced advice on how to handle a wide range of situations that arise." "As in Ecovillages, the book is anchored by numerous case studies of real-life communities and how they've dealt with change. Throughout, the author addresses practical issues of flexibility, self-sufficiency, neighbours, technology, spirituality and money, among others."--BOOK JACKET." ;
