Eco-Hobbit village: live green like Bilbo Baggins

August 24, 2012 at 8:11 pm by linuxelf  - 

Living in a hole in the ground and living of the earth is nothing strange for a hobbit. Now in Denmark there’s a eco-friendy spin on the concept with a Shire-like village.

About an hour and a half by train from Copenhagen the eco-village has 74 sustainably-designed highly unique houses and apartment buildings that range from hobbit-style straw bale to high design.

The site also includes seven wind turbines, an impressive 66-foot-long bin system for recycling, chickens, gardens, and acres of green space -— all serving 118 people, 60 of which are children.
