WANT!: Garden Pool

30/08/2010

It’s been a while since I posted anything about sustainability, intentional communities or similarly utopian ideals of mine.

But today, I came across THIS. (via Neatorama)

Basically, a family in arid Arizona (which has an environment similar to much of Australia) converted their dilapidated pool into a greenhouse/fish pond/poultry hutch. They are completely self sustaining, food-wise. In other words, they took a liability on their property and potential drain on their income and turned it into an unlimited resource. And all using very simple DIY technology.

This is something any suburban homesteader here in Australia could do, provided they have a pool they’re not using or are sick of maintaining.

In other words, WANT!
