Group preserves its own enchanted forest Hoosier Times

Terry Kok’s home is the Elf Lore Family laboratory. It runs on solar and wind power, uses greenhouse plants to recycle waste water and composts refuse to feed gardens that supply him, his wife and two daughters with most of their food. The building will soon be fully sustainable, with no electric or water hookups, low-energy appliances he designed and the ability to store four days’ worth of solar energy.
