About the Film:

WITHIN REACH explores one couple's pedal-powered search for a place to
call home. Mandy and Ryan gave up their jobs, cars and traditional
houses to "bike-pack" 6500 miles for 2 years around the USA seeking
sustainable community. Rather than looking in a traditional
neighborhood, they begin to recognize that community is the secret
ingredient to living sustainably on this planet. Along the way, they
explored 100 Ecovillages, Cohousing Communities, Co-op Houses,
Communes, Transition Towns and their own principles and commitment. In
the end they return to the timeless truth that community is people;
they are everywhere; and there is room for everyone. Both their
journey and their film have answered the question that they and many
others are asking: How can we pass along a lush, beautiful,
sustainable world to future generations? After circling the country
and interviewing hundreds of Americans, they have found that by
reaching within sustainable community is Within Reach. In fact, it’s
already here.
