Geof Syphers is the Chief Sustainability Officer at Codding Enterprises, developer of Sonoma Mountain Village, a One Planet Communities development in Rohnert Park, California that aims to be close to net zero…as a village!
We’ve written about Sonoma Mountain Village (SOMO) before. Click here to review that post. Now, as an Earth Day special, please enjoy the interview I conducted with Geof a few days ago. Click here for the full text, or just click on the “Interviews” tab at the top of this page.
The thing that makes the interview so relevant to Earth Day is SOMO is a One Planet Community. This means that if every community on the planet lived like the residents in SOMO, we would only use the resources available on one Earth. As it stands now, if everyone on the planet lived like the rest of the United States, we would need multiple Earths to support our lifestyle!

So, Geof, and the group at Codding are onto something. Enjoy the information in the interview, and have a great Earth Day!
