Mission Statement:

Sustainable living

Community Description:

The goal of GreenSoul Ecovillage is to merge youth with elders of all different cultures towards a mini-ecovillage starting in Klamath Falls Oregon and leading to Chiloquin and beyond. We are currently at stage one and have acquired two acres of property on Lakeshore Drive. We are currently looking for four families from various cultural backgrounds to put in $50,000 apiece to live and start the process. Our goal is to learn sustainability from different cultures of the world so that we appeal to the world. We want this to be a place where people come from all over the world to learn to live naturally, at the same time teaching sustainable cultural awareness. This is an organic process.
