Meet nearby Advocates for Sustainable Living!

Sunburst is a Sustainable Living Community Farm which provides opportunities for those interested in living more sustainably.

We try to offer monthly meetings designed to inspire, educate and bring people together around such topics as: reducing your personal carbon footprint, peak oil, composting, farming, (hydroponics, aqua-culture, and aquaponics), slow foods, local agriculture, permaculture, water catchment, wind power, solar power, and biodiesel fuel and other renewable & less polluting fuels.

We will be offering hands on workshops and lectures to design and build some projects.

Members of the group share books, films, ideas, insights and other information to assist each other in living more sustainably.

The group encourages members to foster sustainability within their communities, municipalities and other local organizations.

Come to one of our Sunburst meetup group's to discuss ways of addressing earthly concerns as individuals and as a community.

Mission Statement for Sunburst:

Our vision is to create an ecologically sound, self-reliant community, combining the latest technological advances in bio-culture and energy efficiency.

Community Description:

Sunburst is a community whose ideology revolves around combining alternative-technology education with holistic living.

Some of the interests and skills of current community members are solar and wind power, compost heating, filtered rainwater, natural-style parenting, greenhouse farming, homeschooling, music, and worker-owned cooperative businesses.

The community plans to be self-supporting, providing jobs through intense aquaculture, hydroponics, beekeeping, internet business, recumbent-bicycle making, and the production of electric bicycles and motorcycles. Sunburst is a home for those who share high ideals and who know that tomorrow is built today. We are presently in the formative stages: We now own 50 acres of farmland  and are in the process of purchasing another 22 acres on which to build our buildings and residential housing. We are building the relationships and the organizational foundations of a community. We are planning on building a cluster of energy-efficient mini-homes/ moveable mini-homes on trailers and developing a conference and education center which will demonstrate conservation of energy resources and sustainable agriculture.

We have recently built a “dome greenhouse” where we are building a pro-type aquaculture system utilizing fish and vegetables. Also we plan to install a underground thermal storage tank for our compost heating system combined with our solar hot water and rocket stove. This spring we will be putting up another greenhouse for our hydroponic gardens. In addition we will be building a “living pond” and constructing two sheds to house our rabbits and chickens.

We have already built our community home, located in Durham, within walking distance to the University of New Hampshire (UNH).

Like-minded persons who are ready to develop and explore themselves in a setting of openness and trust are invited to inquire about Sunburst, either as prospective members or as investors in a socially responsible alternative environment
