At a time of calamitous storms, catastrophic landslides and life-changing floods, we all need to recognise that maybe it is time we took notice of the damage we are inflicting on our home-Planet Earth. In Green Dreams, CB Ramkumar takes us on his journey to build a self-sustaining eco resort at a time when many technologies were in their infancy or simply not yet thought of. Green Dreams gives advice about building materials such as stabilised mud bricks bricks, techniques such as using pond plants to filter the swimming pool, cooking with bio-gas, collecting rainwater and other fascinating howto facts to get the reader started on their own self-sustaining journey. It also gives information and advice on what can be done differently based on his experience and the technological advances and innovations that have come to the fore in the decade since CB Ramkumar decided to build his dream. Green Dreams is not just about one man’s quest for a self-sustaining life model; it is about how he achieved it with no knowledge,experience or qualifications. In his own words: ‘If I can do it,anyone can do it’.
