If you want to make a real difference in anything - the environment, in this case - then all(!) you need is a lot of dedication, talent and hard work.

My friend artistrybysandy (Sandy), together with her son Ty Downing, have shown all of these in putting together a great web site with a focus on fostering Green Communities.

One example is the Serenbe Green Community in Georgia, which (as Sandy says) has several self sustaining features such as earth craft houses, organic wastewater treatment, organic farming and storm water management.

I also like what Serenbe write of themselves:

"They say that if you want to change the world, you should start in your own backyard. If that's so, then Serenbe is quite a beginning. Or maybe a respectful nod to times gone by."

Building a community where people can rediscover what enjoying life is all about might sound like a sales blurb (although in this case it isn't). The interesting thing, though, is that applying green principles to new developments can also be very successful from a business point of view. Everybody wins!

Serenbe is just one example. There is a lot more going on at Sandy's site. Please go check it out!
