This is a link to a small off-grid sustainable community in Devon. They're under threat of eviction after living there for 16 years!

I see that living in the woods makes you optimistic.

It's not my community, hh. They're about 7-800 miles south of me :lol:

I know they managed to crowdsource sufficient funds to take on a solicitor to fight their case so hopefully and their efforts are getting quite a bit of publicity. So fingers crossed for them.

There's always opposition to environmental living - it starts at the top with the government withdrawing funding for green energy and works down through the system. Land is valuable for so many things and looking after it properly is way down the list. A green lifestyle is something that a lot of the world can't get its head around.
