Ecovillage Essentials Bundle
“The concept of ecovillages first arose in the late 1980s, with the intention of offering an alternative to a culture of consumerism and exploitation. Combining a supportive and high-quality social and cultural environment with a low-impact way of life, they have become precious playgrounds in which groups of committed people can experiment to find solutions for some of the challenges we face globally.”
Order the Ecovillage Essentials Bundle for a discount on 3 key books highlighting examples, stories, and advice from Ecovillages globally. Plus! 2 Communities magazine issues focused on Ecovillages from authors living, designing and thriving in sustainable community.
Ecovillage: 1001 Ways to Heal the Planet
by Kosha Joubert, Edited by Leila Dregger
Let’s begin the bundle with a stunning book that not only interviews with founders or long-standing members of ecovillage communities, but also describes examples of regional or national networks of ecovillage transition. The book sets out both to honor successes, but also to learn from difficulties and failure.
This book introduces a selection of ecovillage projects from all over the world. The editors have aimed to give a taste of their richness and diversity with examples from Europe, Latin America, Asia, Africa and North America.
Edited by Frederica Miller
The next book in the bundle was designed as the final addition to the 4 Keys for Sustainable Communities series looking at the social, ecological, economic design, and worldview of ecovillages around the world. This book includes more than 300 full-color photographs and diagrams and features well-established ecovillages such as Findhorn in Scotland, Auroville in India and newer initiatives such as Hua Tao in China. It also highlights the unique features of each project and their solutions to the global social and environmental challenges that confront us.
Produced in association with the Global Ecovillage Network, this Summer 2016 issue Ecovillages Around the World explores stories of pioneering efforts worldwide by communities working to incorporate social, ecological, economic, and cultural sustainability.
We travel to Australia, Ireland, Palestine, India, Brazil, Egypt, Fiji, and many other locales where ecovillages are helping to improve lives. We learn how ecovillages can help address our most pressing issues while offering hopeful models for the present and future.
Communities Magazine issue #156: Ecovillages
Digging a bit deeper into the Fall 2012 issue, Ecovillages hears from the members of budding Ecovillages and established communities alike. Read the advice and lessons learned from Ecovillage Ithaca, Belfast Cohousing, and Yarrow Ecovillage, just to name a few.
What are the basic infrastructural needs of most ecovillages? What does an ecovillage look like in an urban setting or as a cohousing community? The experiences and stories from this archive Communities issue is just as relevant today and into the future of ecovillages.
Lastly, we offer the Best of Communities volume focusing on the details of land management and ecological building – two practices that hold a key component of any Ecovillage design.
As a compilation of Communities magazine articles, Volume XI offers you 14 articles overviewing how to read what your land is telling you, how to use materials at hand to build beautifully and sustainably, how to work creatively with zoning restrictions, and how to live and build in harmony with your natural environment.
