Does anyone have experiences/advice they'd like to share in this area, particularly wrt mutual funds?

i'd also like some referals.



IamJen, my wife has consulted with a company called Blue Marble Investments that she would recommend as a socially responsible investment firm. might be worth looking at.

it's been a growing idea of mine to invest in or start a company that provides environmentally friendly housing with a lean towards intentional communities. if anyone can point me towards some resources, i'd appreciate it.

it's a catch-all for a planned community of people that have intentional social interaction and shared goals, purpose, and resources. some housing co-ops, communes, eco-villages are examples.
