Green retirement communities are few and far between but the concept is growing. Many years ago, as a geriatric care manager; I had a gentleman whose quality of life was the environment. He had been part of a group who had built the Los Gatos Creek trail system over the Santa Cruz Mountains. When he was dying his entire support system came from the environmental group who built the trail.
He would have loved a green retirement community and they are beginning to pop up throughout the US, according to the New York Times today.
