By Anna Edey
—Organic Gardening Magazine
This book is about one woman's vision and commitment to learning to live sustainably and in harmony with life on Earth. Since 1976 Anna Edey has made one astonishing discovery after another, developing methods of sustainable living under the name Solviva Solar-Dynamic, Bio-Benign Design. The results of her experiments and methods have again and again exceeded highest hopes and expectations.
Solviva describes the exciting trials and triumphs of her journey and offers convincing proof that we can, with today's technology and knowledge, live in ways that reduce pollution and depletion of resources by 80 percent or more, and at the same time reduce the cost of living and improve the quality of life in urban and rural locations. Solviva contains 155 color illustrations and detailed instructions and recommendations to help others along their own journeys toward living sustainably.

Farmers John's Review
Not real thrilled that this book was printed in China and NOT on post consumer paper. Kind of diminishes Anna's message to live lightly on the earth. It also reads a bit like something from the 1970s greenhouse movement or "back to the landers" of that time. That being said she did turn my way of greenhouse growing upside down! I mean I'd thought about using chickens in the greenhouse for CO2 production, but man she has made a science of it! She has even calculated how many btus you will get from every rabbit and chicken to keep that greenhouse warm. There are tons of other great ideas here that make this a fun fireplace book worthy of a read. I would still email her about printing her book in China!!!
