 1.  Community Technology

Hess, Karl, Jr. Loompanics Unlimited 1995 9.78E+12 Trade paperback


Trade paperback (US). Glued binding. 120 p. Audience: General/trade. This book tells the story of a community technology project in the Adams-Morgan area of Washington, D.C. in the 1970s. For five years Karl worked with his neighbors to develop a self-sufficient urban community. They raised fish in basements, vegetables in vacant lots and on rooftops, built composting toilets, published a newspaper, and had plans for a methanol plant to produce fuel. This book explains what they did, why they did it, and why it didn't work -- but it also discusses how their experiences can help us today learn how to be more successful at this kind of urban community. 
Price: 9.95 USD
