Lessons in Building Resilient Neighborhoods

Author: Ryan Dubas

Scattered through Eugene, Oregon’s Horn Lane neighborhood, residents are working to manifest a vision of a sustainable community inspired by PROUT localized economics, permaculture design principles, and a neohumanist respect for all living beings. This neighborhood project aims to develop a network of properties that fosters an ethic of resource sharing. In addition to sharing food, tools, materials, and know-how, the community also offers cultural events, education in permaculture, and instruction in yogic practices. This network demonstrates how small sites and connected people can carve a new vision in the shadows of an outmoded paradigm.
