Earth Energies Eco Village

(Marigot, St. Andrew, Dominica)

Mission Statement:

Eco Retreat Centre and Farm

Community Description:

We are a small group of people on a small Caribbean Island named Dominica. This island is on the cusp of future intense development and large tracts of land need to be saved and utilized sustainably. Local people on local incomes are often unable to purchase land as the price has skyrocked recently. We believe the way to go is a series of eco villages. We have an in depth knowledge of traditional and international healthy ways of living. Tourism; Agriculture; Art; Crafts and Agro Processing are potential income earners.
