'Backyard Skills: A D.I.Y. Handbook'
Divided into five key topics- energy, shelter, waste, food and water- the book is aimed at getting readers engaged in sustainability, and it does so effectively, with visually compelling graphics and well-composed text that make the prospect of green living accessible and engaging.
It's a hands-on approach to education that conveys ideas, concepts, and strategies well, and we hope it inspires others to get involved in this movement towards a more environmentally friendly and ecologically sound future.
At MYD studio, we focus on sustainable design practices, as well as fostering relationships with like-minded organizations and non-profits, such as the Ecology Center. Its initiatives are in alignment with these values, and we applaud efforts to bring knowledge, skills and awareness to the local community and beyond.
That said, we were pretty enthusiastic to come across several beautiful images of one of our favorite projects completed last year, the Energy Lab/Solar Structure, as we thumbed through the colorful pages of Backyard Skills.
Backyard Skills: A D.I.Y. Handbook is available online through The Ecology Center or at a number of bookstores in the area.
