Sustainability and Community.
We are an urban, inner-city ecovillage in the heart of Oakland’s historic corridor. We emphasize sustainable living within the constraints of an urban environment and use the permaculture principle that “the problem is the solution.” Because of our busy urban lifestyle, we have created a “semi-collective” structure that allows us to share food and chores, practice consensus decision making, and have the flexibility to pursue our interests outside the home. Two homes function as one larger home, shared by a courtyard with lush vegetation and a solar-heated hot tub. The 611 Ecovillage is an urban oasis.
