Community Description:

University of Earth (UE) is a nature-based wisdom school dedicated to the evolution of humanity and the reinvention of society through self-discovery and personal development. We are a community of life-long learners. As students of life we come together to share our knowledge, skills, and practices and to fulfill our greater potentials with the objective of taking our soul’s gifts out into the world to create a sustainbable society, a society that works for us all.

Campus residents are dedicated to the FEW essentials – creating and implementing sustainable Food, Energy, and Water practices.

Our campus/ecovillage currently has eight residences with plans for expansion. One of the existing residences is available for immediate occupancy.

Residents live lindependently and share weekly gatherings in the form of a Wisdom Circle and Project Meetings. In addition, there are seasonal and special events throughout the year.
