Green Home Building and Sustainable Architecture

Sustainable architecture is an exciting and important field, with many people reviving traditional methods of building and others creating innovations to established practices. Kelly Hart, webmaster of the popular website www.greenhomebuilding.com, posts text and photos featuring what he discovers from around the world.

Invitation to Create Gathering Place in Scotland

I recieved the following email and thought I would post it for all who might be interested:

Hi Kelly, I have written this to you as I think you will be able to contact lots of people, with your obvious knowledge and networking skills. I would like to invite an international group of 'experts' to gather together and build a meeting place for environmentalists, educators, artists and green builders. It is so that they can interact, work together, discover the environment and learn to take sustainability to communities. We have acquired approx 800 acres of unmanaged woodland on the Isle of Skye in Scotland. (As in 'Speed bonny boat like a bird on the wing - over the seas to Skye'). The Isle of Skye is still partly a crofting community and the project is likely to get a small amount of funding for this project from the Crofting Commission. This is in the very early stages of thinking about this, but my question to everybody is ... Who would like to get involved at this early stage? Who would like to be kept informed?
