Have you considered visiting Auroville in Southern India?
I've known about this project for quite a number of years, but had not met anyone who had visited until last summer. The woman I met had good things to say about the project/city. I will see if I can find her contact information for you. My understanding is that they do allow volunteers/visitors for varying lengths of time. <http://www.auroville.org/>
There are also vastu shastra schools in the region, which may or may not follow "sustainability" guides, but I suppose how you define sustainability would determine this.
Yestermorrow is a wonderful school, I highly recommend it! I may be heading to their reunion next weekend.
If you have any further questions, either on or off list, feel free to email me.
