With Goa being one of the first places to be in Green Zone, we might see an increase in second homes, and some people might make Goa their home. But I don’t wish to see mindless construction, wasteful use of natural resources all over again. If we can put together a directory and guidelines for new home owners in place it can be a step towards mindful living. This compilation should first show a new way of leading a mindful life, and gradually move from intangible to tangibles. For instance, a picture of a beautiful home to reveal features and materials like earth construction, waste management, composting, permaculture, rainwater harvesting, food forests. At the end of this publication, there should be a directory of people working on-ground to make this kind of living possible.
