Abstract: "Natural Life" is a magazine dedicated to providing information to Canadians interested in exploring alternatives in the areas of life-styles, energy, co-ops, community living, organic foods, and schools among others. To quote their self-understanding: "We hope to show the natural alternatives which will provide the greatest chance for peaceful co-existance. "Natural Life" will report on developments in the environmentally appropriate technologies; focus on the positive steps each of us can take to live as close to the natural life as possible; provide contact with people and organizations engaged in th search for the natural life; and serve as a medium for the exchange of views on how to attain a saner world in which to live.
In this edition, articles appeared on the "Society of Integrated Living" (SOIL) a new community that seeks to explore alternative communal life-styles in a rural setting; "Heating with Wood," an article that explored wood as a viable alternative energy resource and examined the latest in wood heating technologies; "Rock Bottom", an article on the formation of a craft co-op in southern Ontario; "Pick Your Own", a story on a successful organic farming enterprise. A large section of the magazine lists and describes many of the books and resources available that explore alternative life-styles. After each article or short item the name and address of a contact person is printed providing an opportunity for the reader to follow up the story personally.
