The village green is the focal point of any community; a gathering place where the best ideas take root and the brightest voices are heard. "The New Village Green" gathers some of the best ideas and brightest voices of the green community; some famous and familiar, others fresh and unknown. Each tells an absorbing story, and collectively they comprise a powerful chorus that profiles the current state of the environment. This remarkable book gathers wisdom and insight from a compelling and thought-provoking virtual community. Each contributor brings a unique perspective that mingles reverence for the environment with provocative thoughts for the future. Topics range from spirituality to solar panels and, just like a real village green, are juxtaposed with opinions from "the new village people," including: Writers Bill McKibben and Michael Pollan; Scientists James Lovelock and Donella Meadows; Spiritual leaders Gandhi and Buddha; Practical, homespun topics are given equal time: Good reasons to embrace alternative currencies; Tips for growing great garlic. Meant to be devoured in one sitting or sipped a little at a time, this book springboards the green movement into the future by acknowledging its roots in the past. Rachel Carson, Paul Ehrlich, and Helen and Scott Nearing are as relevant today as the Slow Food Movement and Peak Oil. This book will touch the heart of anyone who lives with conscience and hope.
