Far too often, we think in terms of silos -- affordable housing -- or land conservation -- or growing food -- separate things to be dealt with in very separate fashions.

But in the day to day of living, we all need food -- and shelter -- and green spaces to clear our minds and restore our spirits. These are the ingredients of a life -- and one without the others simply does not work.

The term "greenfordable" may seem a little corny -- or even incomprehensible -- but to me, it signifies the core components of sustainable communities -- where everyone, regardless of income or location, has access to decent housing, healthy food, and green spaces.

The site is just at its beginning stage -- but in the coming months -- I hope to add an enormous amount of resources -- to make a contribution to the world dialogue around these issues.
