What the heck is a “sustainable community” and how does it put dollars in my pocket, pep in my step, and grace in my place? Join us as we step into a someday "sustainable square-mile, walkable-village" in a "City of Villages" – where every household can walk-to-work, walk-to-shop, walk-to-learn, walk-to-play…neighbor wealth builds-circulates-supports the beautiful life…and The 8 Principles of Green- Village-Building™ help reverse the harms of global warming that hit black folks first and worst.
