I have been an activist on environmental and conservation issues all my life and think that getting back to a more "frontier" living style is what we (esp. in the US) need to do to keep ourselves from destroying about planet further and ensuring equitable existence for all creatures big and small that share it.
I hope someday to build an offgrid home in the mountains of north carolina. It's why I moved here.
I need to educate myself about sustainable building techniques, costs, who provides support to homeowners, and would also like to network with other people that share the same philosophy.
I can offer discounts on my store, and advice and sourcing for products and manufacturers that sell energy conservation and offgrid products.
New to Asheville and I run an offgrid, eco-friendly webstore at www.into-the-wilderness.com. Would love to get involved with what you guys are doing locally, join forces and get information about sustainable building for personal reasons. :)
