Natural Home May-June 2010Our sister publication, Natural Home, just named “America’s Top Ten Best Green-Built Neighborhoods” in its May-June issue. The list contains a lot of interesting places, like Kalahari Harlem, for example, where half of the 250 homes were sold as affordable housing. Or the impressively scaled Issaquah Highlands community in Washington state—with more than 3,000 green-certified homes. Very cool stuff, all around.
