Livin' The Distributist Dream....The Serenbe Community
I smell DOOM in the air for this Eco-Cult...
Could YOU live off-grid? Quirky forest eco-village created by couple who were tired of modern life now houses 600 people in four communities - and some of the homes were built for just $20,000
A back-to-nature rural community created 15 years ago by a couple who dreamed of living off-grid is thriving. Serenbe, in the idyllic pastoral setting of Chattahoochee Hill country, south of Atlanta, is the brainchild of Steve and Marie Nygren, who decided that escaping the rat-race for a simpler life needn't be the stuff of fancy. Residents living in the revolutionary green utopia, which was designed by architect Dr Phil Tabb, now recycle their water, live off fruit and vegetables grown on a 25-acre organic farm and walk as much as possible via a network of inter-connecting trails. Some 600 people are currently living happily in the experimental community, with the four hamlets boasting a school, shops and cafes - all with well-being and green living at their core. Source
