Crazy Green is a true story about a house. Paul and I met at a dance club but it was a far cry from building a house together and how we spent the next ten years of our lives. Nothing was easy when we chose this stacked bag home in the small country town of Garfield, Arkansas. Some people called it a ‘dirt bag house’ but we didn’t care, we were building it from the ground up using as many recycled materials as possible and we were going to live free with no house payment. We wanted to make a one-of-kind, sustainable place off the grid, grow our own food, hunt, collect rainwater, and show everyone it could be done, but being newlyweds and living in the woods has its challenges. Not only that, the County Code Enforcement Agents tried to stop us from building, and if that wasn’t enough, family matters complicated and almost ruined our relationship, but one thing saved us. We started inviting volunteers to help out and it became a turning point for us. They brought new life and new energy when we needed it the most. After ten years, we thought an Ecovillage would be cool, but didn’t expect what happened next. We wanted to see good changes in the world by doing something different, but instead, we were the ones who were changed!
