Hidden Eco-Village in Wales

Hidden Eco-Village in Wales

It looks like a small village of hobbits, but it’s actually an eco-village in Wales that was nearly destroyed by bureaucracy. Julian and Emma Orbach built their small village in 1993 and lived happily in their green-roofed earthen homes until 1998, when a survey plane noticed their solar panels and informed authorities. A decade-long battle ensued, and the homes were eventually allowed to stay put. They are entirely self-sufficient, and the 22 residents of the tiny village are still happily living in their green homes, raising their own food, and producing their own power.
