‘Local Sustainable Homes’: Now Available!

The third book in the Transition Books series, ‘Local Sustainable Homes: how to make them happen in your community’ by Chris Bird, is now available to purchase here at Transition Culture.  I got my copy on Friday, and it is fantastic, packed with stories, case studies and ideas.  You can now order your copy here.  It is a brilliant guide to creating low impact homes in your community, packed with inspiring case studies of low-carbon buildings, from retrofitted old houses to new eco-villages.  Chris is launching the book this week in Stroud as part of their Open Eco-Homes event.  Transition initiatives can buy multiple copies of the book here.

I have read many books on this subject, but this book is different because it concentrates on how individuals, groups and communities are making it happen and deals with examples from around the country of how people are making sustainable homes a concrete reality – but without the concrete!
