Reviews and Comments about the Solviva book and work

"Greenhouse GOLD" Organic Gardening Magazine

"The beauty in Anna Edey's work opens up people's hearts and minds to many alternatives which they had not previously considered or even imagined being possible."
.....................................................................................Robert Sardinsky, Rising Sun Enterprises

"Solviva fascinates people because it is both ecologically and economically efficient. This combination renders pointless the traditional battle pitting economic developmentagainst ecological preservation. Solviva is a revolutionary project because it dissolves the traditional categories we use to evaluate industry." ..........................................................................Andrew Rodwin

"Your book Solviva is magnificent! I am always pleased to see someone carrying on good and true environmental and "right living" work. You're one of the best!"
............................................................John Shuttleworth, founder of Mother Earth News

"This exciting book is the most talked-about guide to green living in print, and battered copies turn up at every organic farm and greenhouse I enter. The Solviva solutions to common problems are elegant, simple and incredibly efficient, as well as economically sound.
Anybody who dreams of living a simpler, happier, less environmentally costly life will read this book to shreds. Joyful rather than didactic, direct rather than theoretical, it combines the distilled wisdom and experience of a lifetime into one enchanting book.
Green gardeners will not be able to put it down." ............................Ann Lovejoy

"Every time I look through the Solviva book I feel so inspired and encouraged to make changes in our lifestyle. I've probably read through almost every single book there is on solar design and solar energy, and there isn't a one of them that brings such sense of "right living" along with such common sense stuff as this book." .........................................................................Karen DeYoung

"I just finished Solviva, and I want to commend you on all the amazing work you have done. It's enlightening to learn that so much can be accomplished with such a down-to-earth approach. Thank you! Thank you for taking the time and effort to go beyond conventional thinking to devise such simple and elegant solutions to such pervasive modern-day problems" ........Tom Hawley

"The Solviva book is delightful and intensely inspiring." .......................Jeff Spicer

"I just picked up your book yesterday and could not bring myself to put it down until it was finished. INCREDIBLE BOOK! Most people in my life think I have lost my mind when I talk about creating a self-sustaining farm. I cannot begin to describe the comfort you have provide" ....Douglas Scheffer

"I received your book as a Christmas gift - it was the best present! I love it - and have read it twice now - each time I am filled with joy to realize that "yes Virginia - it can be done". .......Lynlee

"We feel your Solviva Greenhouse designs exemplify the epitome of all that is intelligent, sensitive and progressive in alternative energy-efficient greenhouse architecture.".......Krys and Steve Crimi

"I am in love with your book. It inspires me every time I open it. I see something new every time I read it." ......................................................................................................Judy

"I was so impressed and excited during and after reading Solviva. I showed everyone I knew, and they were also excited. It's wonderful to know that everyone can live in a way that is both fruitful, peaceful and self-sufficient." ......................................................................Lara Cestone

"Your book is truly one of the best things I have come across in years. Thanks for being a bold spirit and inspiring pioneer." ........................................................................Mary Bryant

"I can't words enough to appreciate your book and your voyage of discovery as revealed in Solviva.. It answers one of my deepest frustrations: to have read Amory Lovins and all the others of the late 70s and then see the world turn away from that illumination and plunge further into the darkness of greed, militarization, fossil fuels, and our collective slide towards extinction." ................................................................................................................Peter Walford

"Thank you so much for writing such a wonderful book, especially for doing everything you have to help us all move along towards a self-sufficient lifestyle. You have made a major contribution to the world." .............................................................................................Michael Skowronski

"Most wonderful book I have ever read. It has changed my life." .....................Max Meyers

"A dear friend of mine ecstatically lent me the Solviva book. Pure amazement at the work you have done and do." ..................................................................................Genevieve Lawler

"If I take one book into the new millenium this would be it…what a great book…one that finally puts it all together and works with ease and common sense" .....................Millennial Goods

"Thanks for your wonderful example! I have read through your book Solviva and find it is right on the mark, 5 stars, 100%." .........................................................................Warren Gysi

"I just finished your book Solviva…it is outstanding….you are a genius…I can now see how the principles work…I never would have believed that it could work to the amazing degree that you have been able to achieve. It's fantastic!" .................................................... Herb Kincaid
