LE CASE Ecovillage

(San Diego, United States)

Mission Statement:

Living Equitably & Sustainably

Community Description:

LE CASA is a group of like minded urban villagers including pets and critters who want to help create a more eco friendly sustainable world!

Our LE CASE urban ecovillage is located in Pacific Beach, San Diego, California. We are making strides to live sustainably through composting, organic gardening using our own greywater system and making our community a more beautiful place. We use green hosting for our website as well.

LE CASE stands for “Living Equitably Creating A Sustainable Environment” we often use EV to abbreviate “Eco Village”.

LE CASE is located on a small urban lot with three units on it. Our goal is to be an example in the San Diego community by promoting a sustainable Eco Village lifestyle. We grow some of our own food in the garden using permaculture techniques and encourage a communal lifestyle among the residents.
