Product Details


“There was never a town with a truer name, though it didn’t really discover it till tragedy created an opportunity that residents seized with head and heart!”
— Bill McKibben, author Oil and Honey:The Education of an Unlikely Activist

“Extreme and catastrophic climate events are the new normal. Fox is prescient in chronicling the challenges and opportunities of rebuilding a post-disaster Greensburg, Kansas. This is a story of what can be learned from both the successes and failures of rebuilding communities in Tornado Alley in the age of climate change.” — Jennifer Cockrall-King, Author of Food and the City: Urban Agriculture and the New Food Revolution

“…a global example of how clean energy can power an entire community, how it can bring jobs and businesses to a place where piles of bricks and rubble once lay.” – President Barack Obama

“From the rubble of a tornado, a Kansas town becomes a model for environmentally friendly living” – USA Today

“This town was almost blown off the map—now it’s back, and super green.” – Daniel Penner,

“…visionary”. – The New York Times
“…an example for sustainable communities everywhere.” —  National Geographic
“…a living example of what can be achieved when we take that leap into environmental sustainability.”  – The Huffington Post
“…the greenest town in America.” — Los Angeles Times
