Turning hot air into energy savings
Date:6/16/2011

s Moreno Valley will build on other green, energy-efficient and sustainable projects being developed in Oregon and Idaho by Aldeia, LLC.

The Ribeiro family has owned the homes in Moreno Valley since 1979. They were originally constructed in the 1950s as off-base family housing for people stationed at the former March Air Force Base. The 900-square-foot, three bedroom homes will undergo "extreme green remodels" and rent for between $895 and $1,195 per month, Ribeiro said.

Victory Gardens will provide training and assistance to help residents lower their food costs and earn money by raising their own healthy and nutrient dense vegetables, fruit and fish using aquaponics, a sustainable food production system that will combine raising Tilapia fish with rapid cultivation of plants in a symbiotic environment. The system uses no soil and consumes 90 percent less water than a standard agricultural operation.

Excess food production will be sold at a planned onsite farmers market for extra income, be used in community potlucks and donated to the local food bank.

One unit has been selected to be the model home for the community. Taking advantage of the natural turnover in the units, Ribeiro is looking for people interested in moving in and learning to live a natural, healthy and low cost lifestyle in an authentic, neighborly community.

Several of the housing units will be set aside as shared housing and rooms will rent for just $375 per month for singles with green thumbs looking to live and work in an urban farm. For more information visit: www.VictoryGardensMV.com.
