"Solviva's subtitle goes on even more — 'Revealing the Truth about how we can provide electricity, heating, cooling, transportation, food, solid waste and wastewater management in ways that reduce pollution and depletion of resources by 80 percent or more and that at the same time reduce the cost of living and improve the quality of life.' It's quite a long title, but it certainly gives you the idea. Anna Edey is an inspiration; she gathered a community of people around her through the force of her vision and innovative green house designs. In this book, she recounts her experience, and describes her ideas for the future, including plans for a 'green White House,' and green schools, community centers, and public transportation. The book includes beautiful color photographs of her farm and greenhouse, and many of her designs. She also includes a 'collection of powerful quotes.' Some of her ideas for wastewater management may seem pretty radical — including using what she calls 'Urine Power' or 'you're-in charge' — but they only add to what is really a great read. (If these ideas are interesting to you, I'd also recommend The Humanure Handbook by J. C. Jenkins 'If you can't flush it (or don't want to), what can you do with it?'"
