With the help of solar panels, super-efficient windows and insulation, and low-flush toilets Mig Halpine, Calico Harington, and their children are living an almost energy-independent home life in Bethany, Connecticut. The New York Times shows us how the gardening and bee-keeping family lives a "normal" lifestyle in a very green way...

There is nothing terribly radical about their approach - they just get a thrill out of living green and "outfoxing Big Agriculture and Big Energy". The story, Running a Home on Yankee Ingenuity, is full of examples of greener living and pictures.
