Mostly word of mouth, my wife, who is active with the USGBC (green building organization). I also have an interest in ecology, nature, gardens etc.
So many things, the link between inside and outside spaces, lifestyle changes related to what might be possible where you live, knowing more about the place you live, having information that allows you see things differently and recognize patterns.
Suburban but near a farm and backing up on some "conservation" land as a result of some condo development.
I am an architect working in Maine and living in Cape Elizabeth.
