One thought on “Hurdal Ecovillage as an Alternative Ecological Space

  1. The conservative party in Britain plan for more “Garden villages” around English cities. Although completely different in vision, there might be a thin line between the Eco village and the garden village: Both offer pleasant country life and the possibility to grow some food, both rely on additional recourses from outside, bought with money earned in the ordinary economy, by commuting (by car) to work in the nearby city.

    The hippie life is also a low productivity life, and might be a hard sell for the broad masses: Would you like to exchange a pair of trousers for 20 minutes of paid work, or sew your own pants in a day – probably without any noticeable quality difference?
