Sustainability and Community.
Note the the following description below is dated but could become relevant next year. For 2015 the 611 Ecovillage will function primarily as a green rental property with minimal community activity. That does’t mean community can’t emerge with the right people, it just means for this year we’ll be putting community on the back burner and offering affordable rent in a green, low carbon footprint household. The founder is focusing most of his energy on the emerging Laytonville Ecovillage. (See profile here on ic.org)
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. SHARED OWNERSHIP OPPORTUNITIES WILL BE AVAILABLE BY 2016!
