Sustainability and Community.
A semi-rural ecovillage-in-the-making on ten acres of beautiful Northern California land, one mile out of the town of Laytonville. Ten acres have been subdivided into four parcels which allows for the development of new green homes and community space. We partner with the Solar Living Institute (solarliving.org) to host workshops in sustainability.
The vision is to create an “intentional neighborhood” where people live in private homes, next to neighbors they want to live with, and with whom they share community gardens and community structures. One of the visions is to create a “net zero energy” community.
Unlike a lot of rural homesteads, we’re walking distance from town, which lowers our carbon footprint and allows us to be more self-sufficient. Ten acres offers abundant space for agriculture, housing, and workshop space. Cultural diversity and the arts are priorities. 2014 work trade is open. See website for details.
