A little more about us:
As a community of passionate individuals, we strive towards developing self-sustaining off-the-grid intentional communities. We envision these eco villages as places for people to live in harmony with the earth and one another.
This community is a welcoming space for people to develop themselves and their communities through intentional practices, creative endeavors, permaculture, and communal living. We hope to network with other working eco villages to foster a supportive collective of communities that share resources, expertise and relationships. We also plan on using our collective passion as a means to mobilize for environmental and social justice issues locally and around the world.
