Claude Lewenz is the Author of "How To Build a Village"
both authors value the necessity of having fresh organic food available in their village schemes and show exciting new possibilities of community supported agriculture.

The thing could work the other way round and housing could be an offering of land owners.
Its a pretty new concept of agriculture emerging here, in direct connection with human habitat.
