The Journey of an Eco-Village

Postby Ryan » Sat May 01, 2010 10:09 am

I have come across this site that is showing the stages and development of a group in founding their Eco-Village. It is definitely not an easy task and very interesting as a process. It is important to note that these villages are being funded by government grants and therefore there are guidelines and red tape galore. None-the-less an interesting journey so far and I, for one, am looking forward to seeing how it all develops.

Ryan, great post!! This morning I was able to watch 15 episodes. It seemed that the reoccurring theme here; apart, from the obvious (sustainable living) was that of having and being apart of community, getting out of the rat race, etc.. Thanks for positing this, as it was very interesting.

I also look forward to seeing how this progresses for them. I've heard a bit of that is going on here in the PNW, as well as Oregon too.
