    What does your vision of a sustainable community look like? What would need to be changed in order for such vision to become reality?

    SEA TURTLE LUCAS S 2/23/2020 1:58 PM
    A sustainable community would have environmentally friendly energy sources and reliable neighbors. It should also have a sustainable food source that is environmentally friendly. Many people would have to switch their power and there would have to be an environmentally friendly market nearby.
